Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is convinced his side can improve further after a run of fine form at the Emirates.

The critics were out in force after a disastrous start to the campaign for the Gunners, with an 8-2 defeat to Manchester United part of four losses in the opening seven Barclays Premier League fixtures.

But, after battling through their worst start in over 50 years, Arsenal are now within striking distance of the top four and an invaluable return to the Champions League.

"At the moment I feel we are more focused - saying 'look I am right' is less important for me than trying to continue the quality of our team and our results," the Frenchman told Arsenal Player.

"There is still room for improvement so we are focused on that.

"I am convinced we have been right, but what you want is that people who love Arsenal are happy and I think at the moment to do that we still have a job to do."

Wenger puts part of the resurgence at the Emirates down to a change in attitude in north London, with the players less 'cavalier' in their attacking style over the past month.

The increased control has been key to some professional displays, such as in the victory against West Brom, whilst more is left in reserve should the Gunners need to click through the gears, as was the case in the 5-3 win at Chelsea.

"I would say we are a bit more controlled and less cavalier. We are less adventurous when the job is done, I must say," he added.

"You can feel that there is some reserve there if needed. In the second half against West Brom we just kept it serious without going overboard. Overall I would say it is a more mature attitude.

"We were more functional. We did the job properly, with quality and, I must say, with seriousness."
