Jack Wilshere has warned that Arsenal cannot afford to get carried away with their recent good form following their Champions League win over Marseille.

Goals from Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey handed the Gunners a 2-1 victory at the Stade Velodrome as the north Londoners kicked off their group-stage campaign with a win.

The victory was Arsenal’s 10th consecutive away win in all competitions and sixth on the bounce.

But Wilshere has urged his team-mates not to read too much into Arsenal’s recent good form ahead of Stoke City’s visit to Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

“At the end of last season we knew we had to get that fourth position and I said at the start of the campaign we had to take that into this year,” said Wilshere.

“We started off badly losing at home [to Aston Villa] but we’ve picked it up since.

“We won at Fulham away, which is not easy, and we have had some good away wins. The last 10 away games we have won but they have not been easy.

“Some games we had to hold out right until the end and in other games we have killed it off early.

“We are on a good run at the moment but we know we have got to keep that going.”
