Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky puts the club's recent good form down to an improvement in the team’s defending as a whole.
The Gunners have won their last four Premier League matches and have conceded only six goals in their last seven, including clean sheets in their last two.
Cech Republic captain Rosicky believes the squad is now in a better organisational state to move up the league, and are raring to go again after the latest international break.
He said: “We are looking forward to the next month because we are back on track again and have some positive results behind us.
“Sometimes when new faces come in you need time to gel and I think the last month was much better from us. We were good defensively and much more compact. I think we will show that in the coming months as well.
“I wouldn't say just the midfield, it's the whole squad as a unit that have defended better,” he added. “I wouldn't pick out one particular part, it's the whole team that has gelled together. Hopefully we can continue to do that.”
Arsene Wenger has overseen further progress recently, with his team winning their first fixture away from the Emirates Stadium this season last time on their travels – the 5-3 reverse of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
They will be hoping to carry on that form come Saturday at Carrow Road against newly-promoted Norwich.
