Arsenal fans have taken great delight in their superb form since the 2-1 defeat to bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur back in February.
But, if anything, Arsenal should be kicking themselves they are not already sat one point clear of Jose Mourinho's side.
A glance back at the club's opening eight games shows how Wenger's slow starters threw away eight points which would have seen them leading the way going into the final six games of the season.
Draws against Everton, Manchester City, Tottenham and Hull, despite a 2-1 winning start to the campaign against Crystal Palace, could condemn the club to finishing no higher than they currently are in the table.
The club have only drawn two games since then to further compound just how crucial those dropped points could prove to be over the course of the season.
Wenger himself remains pessimistic about Arsenal's chances of a surprise title surge, telling BBC Sport in the wake of Saturday's 1-0 win over Burnley that it is unlikely.
He said: "I don't think our game against Chelsea will decide the title - they have (a) game in hand.
"We still need a perfect run and a non-perfect run from them."
