Arsenal are eight years without a trophy, but will this season prove to be the end of that drought?
The Gunners are five points clear at the top of the Premier League and are in an extremely satisfying position which means that even with a defeat at Old Trafford on Sunday, they will still be two points clear.
With the Capital One Cup now out of their grasp as a result of their to defeat to Chelsea, Arsenal can focus on the big two - the Premier League and the Champions League. The FA Cup will be a priority if the previous two do not go their way.
The League Cup exit isn't a massive worry as Arsenal would only win £100,000 if they were to win the competition which is nothing compared to their current budget. This also allows time to train and focus on other priorities.
But the Champions League is Europe's most treasured trophy, one that every European team wants to win.
Jurgen Klopp has obviously seen enough of this new-look Arsenal side over their two group stage encounters to rate them as contenders.
Arsenal secured themselves as the first English team to ever win at Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday which must state some form of intent this season.
Aaron Ramsey scored again for Arsenal in their famous victory last night and after the match Klopp told BBC Sport: "They could win it - as long as they don't play Bayern Munich."
As a result of their defeat, Dortmund lie three points behind Arsenal and Napoli (who they play next). Arsenal only need a win against Marseille in three weeks time to secure a place in the knockout stages.
This would be a real relief for Arsenal and their fans taking into account the group they faced.
A few hours after Arsenal's opening day defeat to Villa, almost everyone was writing them off, but now they look the most likely English side to succeed in Europe.
The fact that a manager of Klopp's standard claims that Arsenal are one of the favourites for the Champions League trophy, A tournament that contains the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and all of Europe's elite teams, will be a big boost for Arsenal.
