Now that all those pesky international games are out the way and all of the Arsenal stars involved for their respective countries are wending their way back to north London, we can look forward to some club football again and next up for Arsenal is the visit of Swansea City on Saturday.
All Arsene Wenger and the players can do is prepare well and focus properly on our own match, which if we do should mean three more points in the bag for the Gunners. And with Swansea being the first of three EPL matches against teams currently in the bottom five, Arsenal fans can reasonably expect to be at least challenging for top spot by the end of the month.
At the same time it would be a big help if the sides above and around us were to drop points and before they really start to build momentum under Jurgen Klopp I am hoping that Liverpool are knocked off their stride this weekend. That would mean that Manchester United either win or draw, of course, but at the minute I am more worried about the Anfield mob.
It feels like they are on the sort of roll Man City were on until they lost their last game, and without the distraction of European football they could be a big danger. It would be great if Everton and West Brom could take points off Man City and Tottenham as well, but who do you see as the team Arsenal should worry about in the race for the title?
