Whilst Chelsea sit top of the Premier League table, it is the movement just underneath them that has provided the most interest in recent weeks.

Arsenal sit second, leading Manchester United on goal difference, largely due to goals this month from Samir Nasri.

The Frenchman has seven goals in his last eight games and has stepped up in bold fashion in October, scoring and creating goals.

Wenger beamed about Nasri’s performances on the pitch, saying: “He scores goals, he gives assists, he can go one against one, he can pass, he is all that you dream to have as a football player.”

The Gunners gaffer continued his praise of compatriot Nasri, commenting on his efficiency in front of goal: “When you analyse Samir Nasri, he has all the qualities and he now adds efficiency to his game and that makes him a great player.”

Nasri was influential against Birmingham, virtuoso against Manchester City, scored in Europe and looked dangerous against West Ham on Saturday despite failing to score. The game against the Hammers being the only one in his last eight that he hasn’t scored in.

Nasri has taken the penalties this month when he’s been on the pitch, and demonstrated calm under pressure. His form is a major positive at the Emirates, and could be crucial with the winter months looming.
