The Gunners are flying right now and we are aiming for our fifth win in a row on Sunday afternoon. Wenger is as much pleased with our quick and entertaining play as much as coming out with the three points in each game.
Le Prof said yesterday: “Yes, in recent games we have combined style and efficiency and we want to continue that because we want to give pleasure to the fans and we know that comes with results but as well with the quality of the game. In our recent games against Chelsea and against Basel, we managed to do both.
“It looks like we have moved forward, with the quality of our game. We’ve found a good balance between attacking and defending. Our drive is always to move forward but at the moment the team has more belief in what we want to do and the way we want to do things. That should keep the focus very high.”
Wenger just feels that the team need to maintain the quality we have shown in the last few games, but admits that he is still wary of Burnley this weekend. “We have to go into the game with the same commitment, the same focus that we had in recent games.” he continued. “The danger from Burnley comes from the fact that they are very efficient in some aspects of their game, they are very well-organised defensively, they don’t concede many goals at home and they’ve shown that against Liverpool and Watford. They’re very dangerous on set-pieces and counter-attacks as well, so we have to prepare well.”
The fact is that we all know if our Gunners play at the same pace we should have far too much power for Burnley but, as we all know, there is NO easy games in the Premiership any more.
Should we try not to be overconfident just yet?
