It was always going to be a huge ask for Arsenal to address every single weak point in the summer transfer window but they did try and they have to be commended for their efforts, however, there are three positions that remain an issue.
I believe it is accepted by almost all the Arsenal fans that centre back, central midfield and the right wing-back positions are the biggest areas of concern.
For all the will in the world, it is difficult to argue that David Luiz has strengthened our central defence, certainly not to the level Arsenal need.
The jury is still out on Dani Ceballos but I am not sure he is the classical central midfielder we are looking for, the box to box midfielder that all top teams possess. He may turn out to be such a player but my feeling is that he is better suited to playing just behind the front three.
Hector Bellerin is due back but I have a long memory and I accept that he was playing well before his injury but I also recall that he was notoriously inconsistent down the right flank and I am not convinced he is the quality some people think he is.
On Saturday the lack of a decent box to box midfielder hurt Arsenal, the central defence has already shown its vulnerabilities this season and I do not think anyone can claim that the right wing-back position is going to frighten too many of our opponents.
I hope I am wrong but I have this horrible feeling that failing to strengthen those positions in the summer may come back to haunt us.
