If Arsenal fans are honest with themselves then they will have accepted that there are, at most, two top-four spots in play and more probably just the one.
Liverpool and Man City are highly likely to occupy the top two spots which means that there are probably four teams fighting for third and fourth, Arsenal, Tottenham, Man Utd and Chelsea.
Now, it is far too early to make assumptions or even predictions based on just two games or just the one in the case of United but that does not mean that there are not signs that we can all read.
Of the four teams fighting for third and fourth, I hate to admit it but Spurs have to be considered favourites for the third position and Chelsea look the most likely ones to finish sixth.
That leaves Arsenal and Man Utd battling it out for that final fourth spot but that is all speculation at this stage of the season.
But based on what I have seen so far I have to say I am not worried about Chelsea at all and while it is too early to call it a top-five now, the signs are definitely there.
Chelsea remind me of Arsenal last season to be honest but worse, they are inept in defence and mediocre in midfield, they have no clinical finisher and even though they were by far the better team early on against Leicester City yesterday they ended up hanging on for dear life and were very lucky to escape with a point.
No doubt the Chelsea fans will be eager to make me eat my words but I just do not see that happening this season, they cannot strengthen and while they have some solid youngsters none of them are Eden Hazard or dare I say, David Luiz.
So, yes, I accept it is far to easy too proclaim it is now a top-five and not a top-six but I would be stunned if Chelsea finishes any better than sixth this season.
And that is very good for Arsenal.
