Complacency is the last thing Arsène Wenger expects from his team this weekend.
Arsenal are in a rich vein of form with eight victories in their last ten matches in all competitions, including a stunning 5-3 win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last Saturday.
Things are looking up for Wenger and his players but the Frenchman knows it's important to maintain that momentum when West Bromwich Albion visit Emirates Stadium.
The Baggies won last season's corresponding fixture 3-2 and the Arsenal manager will be looking for the right attitude from his team.
"I believe that we are in a position where the last thing that should creep in is complacency," said Wenger.
"We have come so far from difficult times. I believe we have an intelligent group and so we need to realise that there is a lot more for us to achieve to come back into a stronger position.
"For us it is of course a vital game on Saturday. We are coming back into a better position in the league. We feel at home we are managing to win games and we want to continue to do that. What was important at Chelsea was that we won a big game, which is important for confidence.
"The Marseille game was a difficult one because we were on such a high after Saturday which made Tuesday night a bit more difficult. But having had a chance to watch it again we produced enough chances to win the game."Copyright 2017 The Arsenal Football Club plc.
