Arsenal's 4-1 win displayed why they are title contenders.
With two amazing goals from Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey, combining with an Ozil double, things are looking quite good for the Gunners at the moment, who haven't had the best eight years since they last won a trophy in 2005.
The Gunners have been on a rise of form ever since their 3-1 loss to Aston Villa at the Emirates, which I now believe served as a wake up call for Arsene Wenger and his men.
Aaron Ramsey is in the form of his life, Mesut Ozil is living up to his price tag, Giroud is scoring goals and Wilshere's finally found form.
There's very little margin for error implying there's no injuries or anything else along the lines of that.
If there is any injury then Arsenal may have a hard time keeping that first place, in which they are now two ahead of Liverpool, an outstanding achievement so far for Wenger and his men. It will be interesting to see if the squad can keep that run of form in the league throughout the season, particularly against teams like Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool in their upcoming games.
Even if Arsenal do not win the Premier League to be specific, but finish in the top four as per usual, they are strong contenders for the F.A Cup and the League Cup. If they beat Chelsea in the fourth round, then the Gunners might be favourites and I would definitely tip them to take the cup, maybe even a domestic cup double seeing as their run of form is good.
Of course if Arsenal are dominant this season there's nothing stopping them from being dominant in the seasons beyond.
For now, Arsenal have every chance to be successful, and they're grasping it. Top of the league, undefeated since their first game, still in all cups they're eligible for.
Of course they have to rely on their first team squad not to succumb to injuries, only then will they be able to succeed. Activity in transfer markets are important, and January will be crucial to the Gunners' success in the Premier League and cup fixtures.
Arsenal need to keep a hold of their star players, bring in more marquee signings and develop a team capable of competing on all fronts.
Then, and only then, will they succeed in the future.
For now, they're doing a good job.
