Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger declares that his side are laying the foundations for a strong campaign after making it 11 matches unbeaten in all competitions.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has declared that his players have the hunger to maintain their fine start to the campaign.

The Gunners fought back to earn a 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion yesterday, with Jack Wilshere's goal enough to send Arsenal top of the Premier League.

He told the club's official website: "I feel it was important not to lose once we were down today and that is the most important thing. For the mental comfort it's good to remain top after two away games.

"A mentality of being champions is built up through the season and I believe that we continue to focus on the way we want to play.

"We have desire, we have the spirit but we are only in October, in March and April you can show that you have the mentality of champions but at the moment it's early and it's good to continue our run."

Arsenal will top the table for two weeks ahead of Liverpool on goals scored as the Premier League takes a break for World Cup qualifiers, with a home fixture against Norwich City next up for Wenger's men on October 19.
