Arsenal boss Unai Emery has insisted that his team are only focused on this weekend’s clash with Crystal Palace rather than chasing down the club’s all-time record winning streak.
Thursday’s 1-0 success over Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League means that Arsenal have now won their last 11 matches in all competitions.
The Gunners are currently on their best run of form for 11 years, and are chasing down the club’s all-time record streak, which stands at 14 matches.
Emery, however, has said that his team are simply focused on putting an eighth straight Premier League three points on the board when they visit Palace on Sunday afternoon.
“Three matches, that is a lot of matches. We are only thinking of the next match against Crystal Palace. We are also enjoying each moment with our supporters,” Emery told reporters.
“Today we were with them and they were with us, supporters who had come from Arsenal, from London or from here. For us, it’s very important that supporters are with us and enjoy it. I’m enjoying continuing the work, our process. They have a high demand for us because every match is not easy for us.
“Historically, this has been very difficult for us and I know this. We are thinking about three points at Crystal Palace but we know that it’s very difficult to win there. For us, continuing to win is what we want but we know it’s not easy and we can lose.”
Arsenal are currently fourth in the Premier League table, just two points off the summit.
