Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is reluctant to talk up their title chances after victory over Stoke City.

Wenger moved to play down any early talk of ending almost a decade without a trophy.

He said: "Ozil gave a lift to everybody at the club and, for the rest, it will be the quality of our teamwork and our team play that will decide that.

"The only thing of our position at the moment is that we are in a position where we can focus on improvement in a stable environment, so that is a good basis. For the rest, [in] the table everyone is mathematically together.

"We have shown again another aspect as well, that we can dig deep and fight when we are a bit under pressure. When the third goal went in, we just kept the result."
