I may be asking for trouble with this question, as it might turn out to be Arsenal that ends up dropping some vital Premier League points this weekend while our rivals all go an win. I doubt it, though, about Arsenal at least, as I feel we are growing into the season and should have way too much for the visitors Brighton on Sunday.
We already know, of course, that either Man City or Chelsea or both will drop points, as they play each other at the Etihad, but what about the rest?
Liverpool have been in the shakiest looking form, missing a raft of chances while conceding poor goals at the other end. They suffered more disappointment in the Champions League this week after being held by Spartak Moscow, but they do have Sadio Mane back after suspension. An away game in Newcastle is rarely easy though, so I am hoping that Benitez and the Magpies can do us a favour.
Then we have our north London rivals Tottenham, who are probably happy to not be playing at home, as they are calling Wembley these days. Huddersfield have been decent so far this season, though, so you never know, and the Spuds may suffer from fatigue after playing a strong side in Cyprus this week. More hope than any real expectation on this one though.
And there is almost no hope that Man United will slip up this weekend, as they are at home to pointless and goalless Crystal Palace who have just lost Benteke to injury. Stranger things have happened, I suppose, but it looks to me like Arsenal will have to beat Brighton just to not lose any more ground.
