Let’s hope Ronnie O’Sullivan did not offend anyone at the Emirates this week, where he has been known to enjoy the odd day out in one of their excellent hospitality areas. The Rocket compared his titanic quarter-final clash in Newport with John Higgins, two players with nine world titles, 41 other ranking titles and seven Masters crowns between them,  as like “Manchester City against Chelsea”, the two financial powerhouses of English Premier League football currently. At the time of his comments O’Sullivan’s own team, Arsenal, stood in second place, just a point adrift of Chelsea and ahead of City. Unlike O’Sullivan though, the Gunners could really do with a trophy or two in the cabinet.
