Arsenal are currently on an eight-game winning streak for the first time since the season when they were unbeaten all year and are making an unlikely last-minute dash to try and catch Chelsea at the top of the Premiership.
Arsene Wenger admitted that he himself is surprised by the run as much as anyone else, and even refers back to his achievements from 2004/5. Wenger said on SkySports: “I always hope for the best of my team but no manager in the world if he is serious can predict a run like that.
“I would just remind you that we won a championship without losing a game. We are only one who has done that – nobody else has done it.
“We are already in a position that nobody believed possible one month ago for us, so we just focus on ourselves and see where we stand at the end of the season.”
We gained our eighth win in a very dour game at Burnley this weekend, and it would seem that Arsenal have finally how to “win ugly” as well as playing the free-flowing football we saw against Liverpool the week before. Olivier Giroud is just happy that they came out of te game with another three points and wants to simply carry on winning!
Giroud said: “You can’t play your best football in every game. We tried to be focused on not conceding and we kept calm because they played really tough against us – it was a big fight.
“It’s really good for us and I’m really proud to take part in this performance but we don’t want to stop here. We want to carry on and keep this good run going until the end.”
Not only to the end of this season Olivier. We want to keep it going all through next season as well. And maybe the one after that 🙂
Onwards and Upwards!
