Even at the tender age of 22, Cesc Fabregas is still far too experienced to get carried away with Arsenal’s recent form.

Saturday’s 4-1 win at Wolves extended their unbeaten run to 13 games and saw Arsène Wenger’s men move to second in the Premier League table.

But although Arsenal are flavour of the month right now Fabregas knows their character is certain to be tested. And, speaking after the Molineux win, the captain was not harking back to Wenger’s last title-winning side for inspiration.

“We don’t look at ‘The Invincibles’ or whatever the name was,” said Fabregas. “We are Arsenal and a young team who are trying to do our best.

“There will be a time when we cannot score goals and everyone will say there is a crisis. We just have to keep going being ourselves and play at 100 per cent.

"We are scoring goals but we have to be ready because one day it will not happen like that and be not so easy. We will have to be patient and it is in that moment where we have to be strong.”
