Chill, Tomo. We're still in October (winter hasn't come!). If we're still in this position come January, then you could say we look a good bet for Top 4. Until then, best not get carried away just. We were doing alright at this stage last season and looked safe for the Top 4 but ended up crawling into it (partly) because the other sides all crumbled at the end. 

There's only so long you can watch our three rivals churn out what they're doing before this question is asked by more and more people. Even with our youth and inconsistentcy's we look streets ahead of all 3.

In the seasons - specifically from 2011/12 onward - where we didn't win or challenge for the title, we certainly did not make it easy for ourselves when it comes to finishing in the Top 4, even when the other sides are stumbling. Furthermore, you said it so yourself in the Lampard thread that things can change quickly in football (how many times have we started the season well in the past before things go south after like 2-3 months?). After the first 4 games of the season, we looked nowhere good enough for the Top 4 but 5 games later or after 9 games, we look good for it. All this can change for the worse again if we suddenly drop points here and there while others pick them up. At the moment, not too worried about United but Arsenal and Spurs, despite their problems, still have enough quality in their squad and they shouldn't be ruled out of the Top 4 just yet.

Patrice Evra could not have said it better last night. It's what every average Chelsea, Spurs, United, Liverpool fan would say if given one minute live on TV to talk on Arsenal. A soft club with probably the most delusional fan base in England. They think they are big, but they are not, they are just useless and deluded with an even more unlikeable, Europa League level manager with no charisma at all. 

At some point last night, the Romanian commentator said "Arsenal do not even look in the mood to play an 8PM Monday night match against a newly promoted side", sounding like they are 20 points ahead Liverpool and with a match in Munchen coming up in a few days. 

Well, if anything, this is a club that should be hungry for throphies because it's what? 16 years since their last major one? They have become completely irrelevant in both PL and Europe, a club with a set of fans with grandiose delusions. They have become an irrelevant club and will stay small and soft. Fuck Arsenal FC!

Good of them to drop points. Still a long way to go though so see what happens. Should finish top 4 based on recent results but it's October and we've played 8 games. Anything could happen. Shit spell, injuries etc. Nice that there's no one far ahead of us except Liverpool though after that disaster opening game!

I just don't think Emery is the right manager for this team. Usually you get better in your 2nd year, but I dont see much improvement. I don't remember aginst whom but I watched them twice this season. They looked awful. I understand if they lose some crucial player but they don't lose anybody.

 Tielemans

Leicester are so top 4 challengers

 

 

Too soon to say, you could well be right but I think they will drop off later on. Injuries and blips will harm them.
