So Arsenal are not a threat to Manchester United's Premier League crown? Everton 1 Arsenal 6. Think again, people!
Manchester City showed they definitely have to be taken seriously and money is going to talk again, like it has done with Chelsea.
But just wait until Manchester United underline that they are the team everyone else has to beat. A thrashing of Birmingham City at Old Trafford in their opening game of the 2009-10 campaign will show what they have got in the tank this season.
Michael Owen, Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov, Ryan Giggs, Antonio Valencia and the rest are all capable of ripping teams apart, and last Sunday's poor performance against Chelsea will be put firmly in the bin as they set about retaining the title.
Everton and David Moyes have nowhere to go now after his embarrassing tirade aimed at Mark Hughes and City.
If he thinks he controls things at Goodison, he is sadly deluded. The bankers and accountants are in control along with the biggest shareholders.
