Arsenal maintained their superb run of form by beating Sporting Lisbon 1-0 away last night in the Europa League.
Unai Emery’s side men have now won 11 games in a row in all competitions and are now within touching distance of matching the North London club’s record of consecutive victories, set by George Graham’s side during the 1987/1998 season when the Scottish manager’s team won 14 on the bounce.
However, Spanish coach Emery played down his sides chances of equalling Arsenal’s all time record and insisted his side will face a tough task when they travel to Selhurst Park to face Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace on Sunday in the Premier League.
“Three matches is a lot of matches,” Emery said in his post-match press conference.
“We are thinking only of our next match against Crystal Palace and we want to make sure we enjoy this moment with our supporters. It is very important to enjoy our work and there is a very high demand on us.
“On Sunday we play a match at a stadium that has been historically difficult for us. We are already thinking about the three points against Crystal Palace but it is very difficult to win there. We want to continue winning but we know that we can lose at any moment.”
The Gunners next three fixtures see them play Blackpool and Liverpool following their clash with the Eagles.
