Wenger urges Arsenal to keep feet on the ground

Arsene Wenger has imported his Arsenal side to remain calm following their fourth-straight victory.

The Gunners dominated proceedings to beat FC Basel 2-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday night, made courtesy of a first-half double from Theo Walcott.

Arsenal were sublime at the Emirates Stadium, particularly in the opening 45 minutes, but Wenger was quick to place a lid on the excitement as the North Londoners extended their unbeaten streak to eight matches in all competitions, which includes six wins.

"I would like to congratulate my team for the quality of football they produced tonight," said Wenger.

"The first half was top, top class."

"We have to be ambitious but also keep our feet on the ground.

"We have keep the urgency level, the focus and the desire.

"We know how we want to play but we still want to get better."
