Arsene Wenger says he is pleased that Arsenal are "in the fight" for the Premier League title after Saturday's 3-1 win over Stoke City moved the Gunners to the top of the table.

Stoke took a first-half lead through Charlie Adam's penalty but goals from Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Alex Iwobi secured another three points that moves the Gunners above Chelsea on goals scored.

It's good [to be top]. But let's wait until tomorrow.

At the minute there is no difference anyway with the other teams, there is Chelsea v West Brom tomorrow. But we are in there. No matter what the results will be. So that's good - we are in the fight.

We were not too bad last year. We finish second in the league. I believe we have improved, yes. But we have to show that on a longer term.

I believe that we have created confidence, I think we are ambitious - but what is at stake is to keep urgency levels very high, humility levels very high and togetherness very high.

We have to show that in every single game now. Then we will see where we stand.

– Wenger post-match
