Arsene Wenger: It's 'too early' to make any Premier League title assumptions

Arsene Wenger: It's 'too early' to make any Premier League title assumptions

Goals from Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi either side of the break were enough for the Gunners to see off the newly-promoted club at the Emirates Stadium.

It is the eleventh league win in a row at home for Arsenal who have clawed their way back up the table after a disappointing start to the campaign.

Lagos-born Alex Iwobi scored during the "Arsenal For All" diversity day against Brighton at the Emirates.

Wenger, who was hired by Arsenal on October 1 1996, will hope there is more to come.

Arsenal make the short trip to Watford for their next Premier League fixture after the worldwide break.

Speaking at his postmatch news conference, Wenger said: "A player like him must score 10 goals, and he must as well give between six and 10 assists, and that's what I want from him".

Speaking during BT Sport's coverage of the game on Sunday afternoon, Keown said: "We talked about Sanchez being involved in everything and he showed magic there". You're not good in a permanent way, if you don't keep your urgency.


The north London outfit now sit just outside the top four, and look to have recovered from their early-season blip, when they lost to Stoke and Liverpool in successive games.

'If I am 21 years at this club it is because this [inclusivity] is one of the values we rate and I'm very proud of that'.

"Last year after six games Manchester City were top with 18 points, so let's not go to quick conclusions".

Albion now head into the next worldwide break with a number of positives from a period of games that has produced two league wins from a possible four.

Manchester City thought they had a deal wrapped up in the closing stages of the window, but Arsenal remained firm. "I don't think you're ever satisfied -there were certainly a couple of games where we could have got more - but we're a new team in this division and learning".

Solly March nearly hit back with Albion's first real chance of the half, with a free-kick routine resulting in a free shot that hit the post. It was a hard week because the game at BATE was a hard game.
