I am not talking about Arsenal getting a refund on the Petr Cech transfer and am really not worried about his opening day nightmare despite all the gloating and rubbish spouted by the chavs in the last few days. And I can hardly believe I am saying this but I am actually hoping that Chelsea do well in their next Premier League game.
That is because it is against Manchester City and after watching the likes of Silva, Toure and Kompany cruise to a comfortable away win over the usually difficult West Brom of Tony Pulis, I am worried that Manuel Pellegrini and his players will be the team to beat this season.
If Man City do beat Chelsea on Sunday, and with the game being at the Etihad and with Courtois suspended after his red card it is a strong possibility, then they will be off to a flying start and in dangerous form. It could be like Chelsea themselves last season who had the title almost wrapped up before the Gunners had woken from our stupor.
A draw would be the perfect result for us of course, but failing that I think a Chelsea win would be the next best option. Do you agree that City could be the biggest obstacle in front of Arsenal in this season’s Premier League race?
