It's been a disappointing season for Spurs yet again (not that Arsenal fans particularly care).

Again it seems as if their top four bid will again falter to the hands of fellow north London cohorts Arsenal, who are again gunning for the title after a narrow victory aided by a certain Czech midfielder.

The solitary goal came after a shocking 72 seconds, when Rosicky played a through ball into Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who couldn't control it and it again fell to his teammate, who had no doubt but to strike it into the top left hand corner, well beyond Hugo Lloris' reach.

Rosicky may never hit a goal like it ever again. However, as rare as it is that he scores for the Gunners, when he does he makes sure it's a memorable one. The one against Spurs early on in the season in the FA Cup is proof of that.

When speaking to Sky Sports after the game about his goal, he said: "I tried to play Chambo (Chamberlain) through, his technique is not the best you can see, after it bounced [I just wanted to hit it].

"It was a great strike."

Tim Sherwood could be seen from the dugout absolutely disgusted at Spurs early on in the game, lacking organisation in defence, and not causing Wojciech Szczesny any problems whatsoever.

When Spurs did pin back the Gunners into their own half, Per Mertesacker and French friend Laurent Koscielny kept the back clean for Arsenal, making sure they couldn't find a way through to Szczesny's goal.

As the match facts show:

Arsenal only had 41% possession, their lowest this season.

Whilst Spurs had 17 shots, with only 3 on target. I think we all know what sort of training they need to do this week before a trip to Benfica.

What this match shows is that yes, Arsenal can't play like this for the rest of this season. However, a win is a win, and Arsenal can take the good form to Stamford Bridge next weekend where they face a Chelsea side who also host Galatasaray midweek.

Spurs showed they can dominate games, but they need work keeping valuable possession and not to hopelessly throw crosses in when you have two great center halves in the air, and a great right back in the air like Bacary Sagna.

The title chase is hotting up. With the FA Cup still in the balance for Arsenal, can they finally gain silverware?
