Just though id create a thread for arsenal fans, which ill put stats in and where we can talk about the best team in the premiership
Charlton 0-3 Arsenal
The records are tumbling as fast as Arsenal's odds to win the title.
While Manchester United's woes continue, their plight is made even more uncomfortable by the stark contrast with the Gunners' imperious start to the season.
Arsene Wenger's side displayed ruthless efficiency as they hit Charlton three times on the break at The Valley with strikes of the highest quality by Thierry Henry, Sylvain Wiltord and Edu.
After setting a whole host of records last season, they thereby eclipsed Manchester City's 66-year-old mark of scoring in 44 consecutive top-flight games.
As a result, United are now already six points off the pace after just six games and with a potential midfield injury crisis to boot.
Arsenal, meanwhile, simply go from strength to strength, with Sol Campbell in assured form and Patrick Vieira making a mockery of his claims to be exhausted with another commanding display.
Up front, Henry and Wiltord, who scored his sixth goal of the season, can punish the slightest defensive lapse.
And for all of their endeavour, Charlton never came close to matching their opponents' finishing prowess and were beaten by the same margin as last season.
Wenger's side were under pressure early on, but Jonatan Johansson just failed to connect with a mishit volley by Chris Bart-Williams, while Kevin Lisbie headed wide and then shot straight at David Seaman.
In what was fast becoming a scrappy encounter, there was a brief spat between rival full-backs Luke Young and Ashley Cole that led to a ticking-off from referee Steve Dunn.
Cole, however, had lost his cool so, at the next possible opportunity, he attempted to hack Young to the ground and was duly booked.
Arsenal nevertheless finally started to impose themselves, with Ivory Coast international midfielder Kolo Toure making an encouraging full debut
It was not until the 31st minute that either keeper had a save of any note to make, with Dean Kiely parrying a fierce volley by Wiltord after Dennis Bergkamp had picked him out at the far post.
However, while Jason Euell headed narrowly wide after rising above Martin Keown, Arsenal retain that priceless ability to strike on the break.
Just before the break, Bergkamp crossed for Henry to strike a superb first-time shot just inside the post and the ball had nestled in the back of the net before Kiely had time to react.
It was rather harsh on Charlton, who had acquitted themselves well in containing the double-winners and posed enough threats of their own to expose Keown on several occasions.
However, Arsenal were straight back on the offensive after the restart, with Toure striking the base of the post with a first-time shot from a cross by Wiltord, who was also again denied by Kiely.
Charlton did rally briefly, with Euell placing one effort wide and seeing a cross-shot just escape the finishing touch of Johansson.
Wenger's response to that spell of Charlton pressure was to take off Toure and replace him with Edu. Just over a minute later, the move paid off handsomely.
Edu showed great vision and precision to pick out Vieira as the Frenchman made a storming run through the centre.
Having drawn keeper Kiely towards him, Vieira slipped a pass sideways to the unmarked figure of Wiltord and, having controlled the ball, he picked his spot and finished adeptly.
Charlton boss Alan Curbishley brought on Radostin Kishishev and Mathias Svensson with 10 minutes left but his decision to take off Euell was roundly booed by the home crowd.
It was still Arsenal who posed the greatest threat, however, and while Henry missed the chance to punish Kiely for being lured out of his goal, Edu rounded off the scoring late on.
Henry was the instigator, delivering a pin-point cross onto the head of the Brazilian, who guided the ball over Kiely's head.
While Edu had another effort ruled out for offside, Arsenal were home and dry. They are already odds-on to regain their title and, on this evidence, those odds could soon fall even further.
