As the season kicked off, there wasn't many that truly believed Arsenal could make a serious challenge for the Premier League title in this campaign.
But even less people would have predicted that the players leading the Gunners' charge would be Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil.
However, October has fallen and Arsenal are sitting top of the Premier League, top of their Champions League group and Arsene Wenger has two star performers: a rejuvenated, hungry and simply brilliant Aaron Ramsey and a £42.5 million German international, filled with class and desire.
The pair individually have given outstanding performances of late. Ramsey is full of goals, full of running and is leading the fight for Arsene Wenger's side.
Great credit has to be given to Wenger and the way he has handled his Welsh star. Many called for Ramsey to be given the axe at the north London outfit last season, but Wenger kept faith with his midfielder and Ramsey is now repaying his manager.
The Welsh international has taken it upon himself to become the main-man at Arsenal and who knows just how good he can now become.
Whereas Ozil has really put Arsenal back on the map, not just because of his performances but with his presence.
From his very first appearance, away at Sunderland, he came into the team and turned into Arsenal's creator and proved why he is hailed as the king of the assist.
Ozil and Ramsey are also developing a very special relationship.
Last night, against Italian outfit Napoli, the pair linked up on many occasions, and Rafa Benitez's side couldn't handle the duo.
They looked as if they were forming into the perfect partnership. Napoli couldn't get near them and if they continue to flourish with one another, then there will be no stopping them.
There's no doubting that Arsenal are blessed with talent in midfield - they have Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere, Mathieu Flamini and Tomas Rosicky - but as they look to end their trophy drought, it's Ozil and Ramsey who will be called upon most.
Ozil is now the creator and Ramsey is now the heart of Arsenal. If the pair can stay injury free and keep their form at the level they have set, then there's no doubt the Gunners can bring the title to the Emirates this season.
