Arsène Wenger has quashed any suggestions of luck in his side’s excellent run of league form.

Arsenal became the first side in Premier League history to record four straight victories from losing positions with their 2-1 win over Newcastle last Monday.

Wenger admits they may have made life difficult for themselves but insists his team have been full value for their five straight league victories.

“Every time we were behind, we showed outstanding spirit,” he told Arsenal Player. “It is not fantastic for your emotions but overall when it finishes well you accept that you suffer.

“If that is the price we have to pay we are ready, but you just want to continue with the same attitude because I don't believe in luck too much on that side of the game.

“If you come back it is because you fight and if you fight you have a chance to come back. So let's fight first.”
