Arsène Wenger believes Arsenal's unbeaten run has added strength because it started later in the season.

The Frenchman has seen his squad win nine of their last 11 in all competitions and they head into Saturday's game at Norwich City as one of the Premier League's form horses.

November is traditionally a mediocre month for Arsenal - their win percentage of 49 per cent is lower than any other month under Wenger - but wins over Norwich, Borussia Dortmund and Fulham would change that.

And Wenger is confident his players can keep their run going.

"Our last game was a win so I believe we have the confidence from a good run," he said.

"After that it is down to being professional. A professional is capable of focusing on his targets and that is where we can show that. We need to focus again very quickly on our run.

"Maybe we are better in October and November now because we had a bad start," he added. "Basically we had many players out at the start of the season and we bought very late at the end of August. We just grabbed the momentum recently.

"I think the team is getting stronger from game to game so overall I expect that momentum to keep going and for us to go from strength to strength. Maybe we are on a stronger run because we started later."
