Arsene Wenger says "everything needs to click" to put together a run like Arsenal's current winning streak.
Last Saturday’s 1-0 win at Burnley was the Gunners’ eighth consecutive victory in all competitions and their 16th from their last 18 games.
Three of those have come in the FA Cup, including an impressive 2-1 win at Manchester United, and Wenger has urged his side to maintain their momentum in Saturday’s semi-final against Reading.
"You need to keep the urgency level and the desire and the hunger at a very high level to continue it"
“If you look in Europe, there are only three teams that have won eight games on the trot,” the manager said.
“That means it’s not easy and that everything needs to click at the right moment, and that the confidence level needs to be there.
“[You also need] personnel available, to know each other better and have a better balance in your team between attacking and defending.
“It’s a luxury to have a good run because it doesn’t question one important thing in our job, the confidence of the team. But on the other hand as well, you need to keep the urgency level and the desire and the hunger at a very high level to continue it.”
