If Arsenal do as we expect them to this weekend and run out as winners of the home game against a struggling Southampton side getting used to their new manager Claude Puel, while he gets used to the English Premier League for the first time, then we will be heading into the next round of matches a bit closer to at least one of our big spending Premier League rivals.
That is because of the Manchester derby meaning that both City and United cannot keep up their 100 percent record and hopefully it will be a draw meaning that both drop points. After that it would be great to see Swansea hit some form and take points of the other front runner Chelsea. The Welsh club are at home and have done well against big clubs plenty of times in the past but I am not holding my breath.
Chelsea´s next game after is against Liverpool, while Arsenal´s opponents will be Hull City, so hopefully we can bridge the gap to Antonio Conte´s team as well.
The same weekend United have an early kick off away to Watford after their first Europa League match on the Thursday and it is an away clash with the Dutch club Feyenoord and you can easily imagine that this could be a tough few days for them.
Then in the third EPL game after the international break we see Chelsea come to Arsenal, with City going to Swansea and United hosting the champions Leicester City and it is not inconceivable that after that weekend the Gunners will be right up there with our rivals for the Premier League title, where we are supposed to be!
