Arsenal maintained their strong Premier League form with a 3-2 victory over Swansea City on Saturday - but Arsène Wenger says his side “still have some things to improve”.
The win was Arsenal’s sixth in succession, but they had to survive a tense finish after twice letting Bob Bradley’s side back into the game.

“I think that we [need to] keep our rigorous attitude,” Wenger said. “We are a playing side, and you see that when we are 2-0 up.
“Suddenly the playing takes over, but the rigorous attitude is always to do what the game demands. I believe that today maybe we were a bit too easy at 2-0, thinking ‘OK, we’ll win the game today’.
“In the Premier League, we have to be conscious in every single game.
“But after the first game against Liverpool, you could not predict that we would be where we are today. That means what is at stake for us is to show that we can maintain that run over a longer distance.
“We are all conscious that we still have some things to improve and that we have to go a step higher up.”
