All things are relative....

We think we have problems ......

We are two points ahead of Spurs, Man U & Chelsea

We beat Newcastle who beat Spurs this afternoon, and Burnley who beat Wolves today

And our only loss so far is to Liverpool

We are missing our first choice Right and Left backs till next month

And we have a number of new key players "bedding in" - Pepe, Luiz, Ceballos

Let's keep things in perspective

Being pedantic, Wolves and Burnley drew! It's very early, I've seen teams, Hull and Huddersfield come to mind, being right up there for a while at the start of the season, then dropping off. Tottenham were a bit fortunate against City and it took until the last 5 minutes to get a win v Villa. Kane has hardly figured, he'll start popping up and scoring a lot soon I'm sure.

Next week will be a better test of where we are, against a team closer to us, and further as we meet the so-called mid-table teams. We could have had a couple of goals before Pool scored, but we missed our chances and they went on to win.

Its early days, and its a lot better being third than at bottom of table



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

I fancy our squad this season. But we will have to do better tactically and selectively than we did yesterday.
I think if we can eat those right we should absolutely be fine joshing top four.

Nor relative but same-old, same-old.
Recalled last season after losing the first 2 games, we went on a 13 games unbeaten run that gave us hope, only to miss out Top-4 by one point.

The frightening part against Liverpool is not the defence, but we are so predictable like last season that every EPL team fancies their chance to beat Arsenal!

We rode our luck against Newcastle and Burnley and got found out by Liverpool.

How did we ride luck, it was two solid wins in a row
