Our unbelievable recent form has started people talking about a potential title charge, but Arsene Wenger insists he is not getting ahead of himself, as reported by the Express.
We are currently on a fantastic winning run, and victory over Burnley at Turf Moor would extend it to eight games on the trot.
Chelsea have been underperforming somewhat recently, but have still managed four wins in their last six games. They have a few tricky games remaining, but with a significant gap between first and second, Wenger knows it’s the Blues’ title to lose.
“I have enough experience to know that I have to live with reality and reality is points and the next game,” he said.
“Chelsea have a difficult schedule, we have a difficult schedule, but what we can only do is master our own schedule.

“What we want is to go as high as we can until the end of the season, give our best and we are also in the semi-final of the FA Cup.
“So we are at an important moment of the Premier League season and it is a period where you show your quality by focusing on the next game and maintain the quality.
“Of course we want to continue to progress and improve – we can learn from victory as well and everything was not perfect in our last game.”
It’s highly unlikely that Chelsea will let their lead slip at this stage in the season, so even if we win all our remaining games it may not be enough.
We can’t finish the season with that attitude however, as if Jose Mourinho’s side do end up dropping points then we need to be there to capitalise.
Burnley are fighting hard to avoid relegation, and could be a potential banana skin when we head there this weekend.
We need to make sure we don’t get complacent, as Sean Dyche’s side have proved they can take points off the big teams on regular occasions.
