The Gunners have strung together an impressive run of form since their surprise opening-day defeat by Aston Villa, winning five straight games before Sunday’s 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion.
And although Özil is thrilled to see his new club leading the way after seven games, he believes that talk of a title challenge is still premature.
“I am delighted we top the table,” Özil said. “But we also know that the season is still very long. To talk about winning the league would be too early. The current table is nothing more than a snapshot.
“We will continue to play every game with our full concentration, we will try to get better as a team. If we can do that, we have a great chance to achieve a lot. I will give it my all.”
Özil, who joined Arsenal on a five-year contract in a club-record £42.5m deal from Real Madrid on deadline day, feels that the English league is the best around.
“For me the Premier League is the strongest league in the world,” hecontinued.
“Every match is a challenge and the games are very intense. I believe, I can profit from that. The atmosphere in the stadium is also striking, the support of the fans, also of the away fans, is impressive.”
Arsenal host Norwich City in their next Premier League game after the international break.
