Arsene Wenger insists that talk of Chelsea emulating his unbeaten Arsenal side this season is premature.

The Blues have been in sensational form so far this term, dropping only four points in their first nine games to lead the way at the top of the Premier League table.

There’s a long way to go. It’s too early

Their fine start has led to suggestions that Jose Mourinho’s men could follow in the footsteps of Arsenal’s Invincibles side from 2003-04 and finish the season without losing.

However, Wenger, whose side host Burnley on Saturday, feels that it is too early in the season for such talk.

Asked if Chelsea could stay unbeaten, Wenger replied: “Look, there have been nine games [played]. There’s a long way to go. It’s too early.”

The Frenchman, whose Arsenal side are nine points behind the leaders, continued: “Chelsea are in a strong position at the moment.

“I believe it would not be realistic to think now we can catch back Chelsea very quickly – we have to get consistent results to have a chance to come back.

“I personally am more focused on the quality of our games and the consistency of our results before we think about coming back on Chelsea.”
