Last weekend's 10 games brought 23 goals, three red cards and results which saw the two Manchester clubs, City and United occupy the first two positions.
Looking at the performances of these teams, especially the signings they made over the summer period, it could be difficult to displace either.
So what did the results in Week 2 mean for the Predictions League? Having comfortably overcome Will Tidey, I was up against Adam Hirshfield, who led for most of the way until a 3-0 win for Man Utd over Spurs meant that he had to settle for a draw against me. So this is how things stand, with three points for a correct score and one for a correct result:
Chris Potter 8.5 (average over two weeks)
Adam Hirschfield 8
Will Tidey 4
This weekend could see the Manchester City debut of Samir Nasri (above), who may travel back down to North London with his new teammates to face Tottenham Hotspur, who were dumped on their backsides on Monday by a clinical and energetic Manchester United team.
United also have a big test of their credentials when they square up to Arsenal at Old Trafford in a match-up that has always been feisty.
Before then, there is derby between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa and possibly a chance for new team Swansea City to pick up its first victory of the season over a Sunderland team struggling for fluency.
