The Gunners are preparing to face Aston Villa tomorrow in the knowledge that both Tottenham and Man United have already gained three points today, but on paper this seems an easy win for Arsenal, but Arsene Wenger has warned the players about being over-confident.
When asked on Arsenal.com about whether the mood in the Arsenal dressing room is the best he has seen this season, Le Prof replied: “Maybe, but we have to be very cautious with the mood in our job because the swings are very quick so the best way you can deal with that is… it helps to get the next result.
“You need a good balance between an optimistic mood and urgency as well. we are in a job where of course you want the level of concentration very high and that is what we want to achieve now.
“We go into a period in the next four months that will decide our season. We have to be conscious that our commitment has to be 100 per cent.”
I must admit, that as a fan, I am EXTREMELY confident about tomorrows game, given our recent form and the woeful form of Aston Villa this year, but, as we have all seen in the past, Arsenal could beat Man City 3-0 one week and then get beaten by Crystal Palace the next, so we should NOT take anything for granted.
But I must be honest, I can’t help it right now!
