Mikel Arteta says the key to generating a consistent run of results comes down to individual preparation.
Teams across the Premier League have struggled to put together a string of wins this season, although Arsenal have won their last three matches to move into second spot.
“It is something different to be consistent individually and consistent as a team, they are two different things but in the end they are related,” the captain told Arsenal Player.
“Now for someone to be consistent in the Premier League you have to win every week and compete at the highest level every week - but to compete for the Premier League is really, really hard.
“To be consistent, I think individually you start with your own preparation, your mentality, your desire, the way you face every training session, the way you communicate with your other players and everything.
“They cannot be lost by one per cent at any moment because that is gift for the opposition so that is the minimum you can demand.”
