Arsene Wenger: What it means to go top of the table


Sitting at the top of the English Premier League table feels good, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said.

The Gunners extended their unbeaten run with a convincing home win against Stoke City as they now wait for Chelsea and Liverpool to be in action on Sunday.

"It's good," Wenger explained.

"But let's wait until tomorrow. At the minute there is no difference anyway with the other teams, there is Leicester v Man City, there is Chelsea v West Brom tomorrow.

"But we are in there. No matter what the results will be. So that's good - we are in the fight.

"Psychologically it is difficult to win when you have to win, when everybody expects you to win. I believe that we want to build a momentum and when everyone expects you to win the game, you want to win it.

"Especially at home. When you analyse last year, last season at home we did very well against the top five and we dropped points at home against teams in mid-table.

"Certainly that is our challenge this year, to continue to do well against the top teams but as well in these kind of games, like Stoke today, where you have to win and we dropped some points last year."
