The Gunners have only won four Premier League games so far this season and are already nine points off early pace-setters Chelsea, but have now won the last two matches and have also maintained clean sheets on both occasions.
The Wales international is confident that the North London club can still find their feet and mount a title challenge this season.
According to the Express, he said:
We haven’t been able to turn the draws into wins, which we were doing last season.
We all feel we have missed out on a few more points than we would have liked, but that’s football.
Although we are gradually getting stronger as the games go on, so hopefully we can go on a winning run and close the gap.
Arsenal have become renowned for their eye-catching, free-flowing football, but they have recently lost their fear factor within a stuttering start to the 2014/2015 season. The 3-0 victory at Aston Villa is the only performance that stands out from a sequence of performances in which they struggled to enjoy any sort of control.
The win at Sunderland was secured by two awful back passes which were capitalised upon by Alexis Sanchez, but the Gunners were nowhere near their best. However the North London club managed to put up a good display against a struggling Burnley side thanks to Alexis again.
It is often said that the best teams manage to pick up results even when they are not playing well and that’s exactly what they are doing, but Wenger and the players themselves must improve their performances if the Gunners are to enjoy any sort of success this season.
