Lukas Podolski is delighted with Arsenal’s impressive start to the season - but insists it is too soon to start talking about winning the title.

The Gunners continued their fine form in Montpellier on Tuesday night after coming from a goal behind to win their third successive game.

Their unbeaten start to the new campaign has led some observers to tip them as title contenders, but with a tricky fixture away at Manchester City on Sunday, Podolski says such talk is premature.

“We have only played four matches. It’s [too early] to speak about the championship," he told Arsenal Player. "When you win a match, you are not a champion. When you lose a match, you are not a champion.

“We want to win all the matches we play and I think if we play the same as we did against Liverpool and Southampton then we have a chance at Man City to get the three points.

“It’s very important [to keep playing well]. We have had some strong matches, but Man City played in Madrid and now against us - it’s a tough week.”

Podolski has scored three goals in his last three games and while he is happy with his own form, he insists that the team's results are all that matters.

“I’m happy to score goals for the team and the Club. We’re also very happy with the three points - it was very important for us,” he said.

“We played very well in the first half after the Montpellier goal. The second half was not so good. We didn't play so well going forwards, but what was important was the three points.”
