Arsenal are topping the league table with massive 7 points in the Premier League following their win against Brighton but Mikel Arteta says they are not carried away with it.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta insists he is not carried away with the massive points difference they have in the Premier League this season.

The Gunners extended their lead on the League table with a 4-2 win against another strong side in the Premier League Brighton.

Arteta’s side now top the league with 7 points after second place Manchester City played a 1-1 draw with Everton at Etihad yesterday.

Speaking after their victory against Brighton Arteta said: “it’s still a long, long run to go. My excitement comes when I go in the dressing room and the players are talking about what they should’ve done better today. That means they know that we still can play better, be better and against Newcastle we will have to be better.

“It’s understanding what the team needs in every moment. It was an emotional stage of the game there. They’re understanding that better and better and they are free-flowing at the moment. You can see that there is good understanding, there is good timing between them and they’re scoring goals, which is really important to the team.

“It’s how do you react now, and when are they going to apply pressure, mentally how you cope with those moments.”

Arsenal faced a tough test against Brighton last night and Arteta has hailed their opponent after the game.

“It’s a big win, I’m really happy! It’s a really tough place to come, they’re a really good side. They are extremely well-coached and they made it tough for us and we made it tough for them as well.

“I think we were excellent in attacking phases, especially when we had the space and the way they defend they were very open, and we made the most out of it.

“Then we had moments we discussed before where we were going to suffer and defend deeper. There were moments where we should’ve done better and put ourselves in trouble but that’s the learning part and every game is a huge test.”
