Arsenal recorded a 10th straight win for the first time in more than 10 years on Monday night, but after the game Unai Emery was keen to look forward, rather than dwell on the excellent run the team are on.
Speaking to the media in the post-match press conference Emery said: "I think we need to continue with calmness and treat each match as a big possibility to continue our way.
"It was very important for us to beat Leicester because they’re not far behind us. Now we’ve created a lot of distance with the teams behind us.
"Now in front we are looking at teams like Liverpool, like Manchester City, like Chelsea, but it’s not important to think about the end. We need to think about the next match against Crystal Palace on Sunday and I also think the Europa League is very important on Thursday."
Emery was pleased with the team's performance though, especially in the second half, and was quick to pay credit to the home fans' contribution.
"When we were winning, controlling the game and finding chances to score, I think that’s the moment when our supporters pushed us forward and helped us. The atmosphere today was very big. The first 30 minutes was a difficult period and we needed to be together for our style and progressing in the match. We deserved to win today for everything in the 90 minutes."
