Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has warned his players against complacency when they take on Swansea City in tomorrow's Premier League action.
The Gunners play four of their five games in October at the Emirates Stadium.
But the Frenchman says his side must focus if they are to keep their positive run going in the Premier League and Champions League.
"You just told me that I have a lot of experience and because I have a lot of experience I'm very cautious [ahead of the next fixtures]," Wenger explained.
"Last year we had a very negative experience with Swansea who killed our opportunity to win the Premier League. We have a good opportunity to show that we have learned from that and that we are capable of dealing with these kinds of opponents.
"That's what is at stake for us. We have to refocus because the players have been away and we've basically had nobody here. We have to show that we can deal with the kinds of fixtures where we are the favourites. We were not always capable of doing that last season and we want to show that we have moved forward.
"If I look well at the results after the international breaks, it's not negative. For us it's not only that that is at stake.
"We play in a very difficult Premier League and what is important is to show that we can move up to the next level now and continue to improve. There is some room for improvement and the quicker we refocus on our targets, the more chance we have to achieve that."
