Wenger refusing to get carried away with Arsenal form

The Gunners cemented their place at the top of the Premier League table with victory over Crystal Palace, but the French boss says the standings hold little significance
Arsene Wenger has played down the significance of Arsenal's fine start to the season, which has left them top of the Premier League.

A 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace on Saturday left Wenger's side in first place after nine games, with 22 points - two more than second-placed Liverpool.

20/1 Arsenal are 20/1 with bet365 to win the Champions League
Arsenal have recovered strongly from an opening-day defeat at home to Aston Villa, but Wenger is refusing to get carried away as the club chase a first league title in a decade.

"It's a good feeling without any massive significance," the Frenchman said. "We always had a high level of aspiration - the only thing we can do is win our games.

"The only thing that is important is that every win makes you stronger, we have difficult games coming up. That will be a good test.

"We are ambitious; we want to do as well as we can. We want to win this title, unfortunately it is not always possible."

Arsenal face a tough run of fixtures, meeting Chelsea in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday before Premier League meetings with Liverpool and Manchester United sandwich a Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund.
