Blackburn Rovers captain Ryan Nelsen has warned Arsenal fans not to get carried away with Saturday's win.
He says talk of Arsenal being tougher and learning to mix it will be judged in late winter rather than the end of summer.
Nelsen, 32, said: "I didn't sense much different about them. I hope they do better this season as I like the way they play.
"But it's different coming to a place like this when it's sunny in August rather than February-March when it's cold and windy.
"It's those games where you win titles so let's see in March.
"There's no doubt we let them off the hook. We feel gutted we didn't take anything from the game, with all the chances we had."
