Arsenal boss sends warning shot to rivals

Published Add your comment

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has sent a warning shot to the rest of the Premier League by suggesting his team can get even better.

Wenger's side are currently top of the league - having won six of their opening eight Premier League games.

Arsenal are also playing fantastic football with £42.4million summer signing Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey among the Premier League's best performing players so far this season.

The north London side are also leading their Champions League group after picking up crucial wins against Marseille and Napoli.

Despite Wenger's outstanding start to the season, the 63-year-old Frenchman believes his side are still some way off their best.

Wenger, speaking to reporters, said on Arsenal's strong start to the season: "We have room for improvement - and being in the position we are in at the moment and knowing we have room for improvement is of course a good feeling.

"The 'feel good factor' is down to the quality of the spirit of the team, the solidarity of the players, and their desire to do well.

"We know we are a team that looks like being successful - for that you need a special hunger and I believe these players have a special hunger.

"I believe in life you can always improve and that is what makes a top-level sportsman or a top-level team, is they always have that surge for improvement.

"I believe that collectively in the way we win the ball back and the use of the ball offensively, we have room for improvement, for more consistency in that and that is what you want from the players."

Arsenal face a difficult set of fixtures over the next couple of months, with Wenger's side having to play a double header against Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City before Christmas.
