Arsene Wenger warns Arsenal not to get carried away
Arsene Wenger warns his Arsenal side that they cannot afford to get carried away by their recent good form ahead of Old Trafford test
Arsene Wenger has warned his Arsenal side that they cannot afford to get carried away by their recent good form ahead of Sunday’s trip to Manchester United.
The Gunners head into the clash five points clear at the top of the Premier League table and on the back of impressive wins over Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund.
Wenger’s men have managed to keep consecutive clean sheets against top opposition, and the Frenchman has been pleased with his side’s new-found defensive stability.
However, the Arsenal boss was quick to stress that his side cannot afford to be complacent ahead of a testing trip to Old Trafford.
“We have made a lot of improvements at the back in our defensive game,” said Wenger. “We have done well in the last two games, but there is a lot to do.
“We cannot come to the conclusion that we are in a position where we can relax – we have a lot more to achieve.
“We have won nothing at all, we have just won two games, and what is important is what we achieve in the future.
“The defensive urgency, the defensive focus of everybody from the first to the last minute [has improved].
“You couldn’t feel in the Dortmund game that our concentration level dropped at any moment. For the first time from the first to the last minute our concentration was at a very high level.”
