Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants his team to maintain their humility as their Premier League title challenge hots up.

The Gunners came from 1-0 down against Stoke City thanks to goals from Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Alex Iwobi to win 3-1 and move onto 34 points in the table.

That puts them level with leaders Chelsea, who have a game in hand against West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge.

After 15 games of the Premier League season, there is optimism that Arsenal can put up a real fight in terms of going one better than the 2015-16 season and winning a first title since 2004.

"We wanted to win the game today and that's all you can do you know," said the three-time Premier League-winning boss on Sky Sports News.

"We keep up there and that's what we want. We want to be in the fight, we have good momentum and it's now down to keep humility focus and be capable in every game to turn up."

Arsenal have not tasted defeat in the league since the opening day loss to Liverpool, winning seven of their last 10 fixtures.

They have also extended their home league run against Stoke to nine consecutive wins since the Potters' promotion to the Premier League in 2009.
