Arsene Wenger has admitted that he has been pleasantly surprised by his in-form Arsenal team.
The Gunners edged Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor on Saturday to make it eight Premier League victories in a row which has the club feeling as confident as they did when going through the 2003/04 season undefeated.
Wenger said: “I always hope for the best of my team but no manager in the world if he is serious can predict a run like that.
“I would just remind you that we won a championship without losing a game. We are only one who has done that –
nobody else has done it.
“We are already in a position that nobody believed possible one month ago for us, so we just focus on ourselves and see where we stand at the end of the season.”
Aaron Ramsey’s 12th-minute striker earned Arsenal their 20th victory of the campaign which has them sitting in second position, seven points behind leaders Chelsea.
