Mikel Arteta watched his Arsenal team return to the top of the Premier League table with a 3-1 victory over Chelsea before insisting he would not let his players’ heads drop.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has called for his players to be fully concentrated after their victory over Chelsea in the Premier League.

Arsenal returned to the top of the table following their 3-1 win against Chelsea at the Emirate stadium.

Speaking after the game Arteta said his side can not afford to let their guard down as they are left with four more games to play.

“It is four games to go, we are at the top right now,” he said.

“We cannot do that (let heads drop), to be where we are after 10 months against the team we are fighting against, being there and having the possibility to be top – we have to enjoy it and embrace it, maximise the opportunity that we have because we don’t know what is going to happen.

“We wanted to have a very different approach to the game, and we did it right from the beginning.

“The team is back to its best. We wanted to prove we had that fire in the belly. I could see that in the last few days, and we prepared (for) the game well.

“Mentally we arrived in the right mood and with the right level of energy. Everything went for us as well, which is important.

“We’ve had a couple of difficult weeks with very different games, with a lot of emotions involved. We’re back to the top of the league – let’s see what happens.”
