Carl Jenkinson expects Arsenal's away form to go from “strength to strength” in the wake of their stunning triumph at Chelsea.

Arsène Wenger's side picked up their first win on the road in the Premier League this season when they beat their London rivals in a 5-3 thriller at Stamford Bridge on October 29.

Arsenal's travels continue after the international break at newly-promoted Norwich City and Jenkinson believes the Gunners will take heart from their last away trip.

"The Chelsea win was a big pick-up for us," he told Arsenal Player.

"It was nice because we know what we are capable of and I think that result showed everyone else what we are capable of. Not many teams have gone to Stamford Bridge and scored five goals and after that win I think our away form will go from strength to strength.

"Norwich are doing well and from what I've seen their home form has been good as well. They are obviously a good side so no one will be going there thinking it will be anything other than a difficult game.

“We've got to make sure we are fully focused because it's going to be a battle. We won't be taking anything for granted but hopefully we can go there and get a good result."

Arsenal went into the season's first two international weeks on the back of defeats but the current break was ushered in with a comfortable win over West Bromwich Albion - their ninth victory in 11 matches. Jenkinson thinks that has made a big difference.

"It just makes your life a whole lot more pleasant," he said. "When you lose it takes a lot out of you and two weeks is a long time to dwell on a defeat, so it was really important to get a good result against West Brom.

"Everyone went away with a positive mindset compared to when you draw or lose. I think it was vital we got that, now everyone is feeling positive. Hopefully everyone will come back without any injuries and we'll be ready to crack on against Norwich."
