Arsenal fans would appear to be confident mood, with two thirds of them having identified the Premier League as the competition they are most likely to win this season.

The Gunners currently sit at the summit of the league table after nine matches played, two points ahead of both Chelsea and Liverpool, and some eight points superior to last season's champions, Manchester United.

Given their position of supremacy at present, supporters of the club are daring to dream of a first title triumph since 2004 and, according to a poll conduced by, 67 percent believe the Premier League represents their best chance of glory.

Fans are, though, somewhat pessimistic about the club's chances in Europe, with only three percent feeling the Champions League is their best bet, while 28 percent are backing a triumph in the FA Cup this season.

Arsenal have not won any silverware since lifting the FA Cup in 2004 but, given their flying start to the campaign, there is a sense that 2014 could be where the heartache ends.

They have, however, already been knocked out of the Capital One Cup - losing to Chelsea on Tuesday - and their next run of fixtures will seriously test their credentials as league champions.

Arsenal host Liverpool on Saturday before facing Manchester United a week later, with a visit to Borussia Dortmund sandwiched in between the two.
