Wenger: Hard work and belief leading to positive Arsenal results

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has highlighted the reasons for his side's recent run of good form.

The Gunners made it four wins in a row on Wednesday night when comfortably beating FC Basel 2-0 in the Champions League.

The result extended the North London side's unbeaten streak to eight matches in all competitions and these are the reasons Wenger feels that positive results are becoming a habit, particularly at the Emirates Stadium.

"It's down to hard work of course, but also belief and belief comes with the last results," Wenger said at his post-match press conference thanks to Arsenal.com.

"The confidence comes with the last result (3-0 home win over Chelsea).

"We were a bit edgy at home for a few games but now it looks like we are playing with full pace and power.

"Now it's down to us to continue to improve. I think we can do better and that will be down to our humility.

"We'll start again tomorrow morning and then focus on our next game (against Burnley on Sunday)."
