After winning five of their opening six Premier League games of the season, Arsene Wenger has been forced to respond to talk of Arsenal winning the title.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the Frenchman said: "We want the right balance between ambition and humility. To speak about the title today is ridiculous."

Arsenal's latest victory came in the form of a 2-1 win against Swansea City, with Aaron Ramsey continuing his fine scoring run, when he netted what turned out to be the winning goal after Serge Gnabry had earlier broken the deadlock at the Liberty Stadium.

Ramsey's form has been one of the driving forces behind Arsenal's early season resurgence. Olivier Giroud has also been impressive in the opening games this season, scoring five goals in all competitions.

In a reference to the form of Ramsey and Giroud, Wenger added: "Aaron has gained confidence now and he has a desire to improve. He puts the work rate in.

"For Olivier, the jump was quite big [to Arsenal] and in the first season it is difficult. You always think at 27 that the best years are coming for him now."

Club-record signing Mesut Ozil had a hand in all three Gunners goals in the recent 3-1 win against Stoke City, and he has provided the goalscoring chances that Arsenal were short of before they strengthened in the transfer window with the £42.5million capture of the German playmaker from Real Madrid.

In reference to Arsenal's opening day defeat against Aston Villa, Wenger said: "the 'crisis' was a combination of factors; we had not bought anyone, have not won the championship for a long time and the fact we lost the game, all this together made the situation explosive, but it was an accident and we have responded."
