Giroud: Too early to get carried away

Cape Town - Arsenal are on a four-game winning streak in the Premier League but forward Olivier Giroud says it is too early in the season to focus on their title bid.

After 10 games, the Gunners are currently second in the table with 22 points, behind leaders Manchester City on goal difference, and have conceded just eight goals.

Giroud won back his place in the starting line-up in Saturday's 2-1 win over Everton and the France international seems to have found his goalscoring touch after an inconsistent start to the season.

He scored six goals in his last seven appearances for club and country.

"I don't want to look too far forward because we need to keep it up and carry on this momentum. It's only the 10th game in the league so we've got 28 to go, so it's a bit early," Giroud told the club's website (www.arsenal.com).

The 29-year-old said Arsenal's fighting mentality will be crucial if they are to lift the league trophy for the first time since 2004.

"I think we are stronger mentally this year," Giroud said.

"We are all fighting for each other. We have a great togetherness and we want to achieve big things altogether. We are showing a lot of leadership."

"We are all looking in the same direction and we know we need to be 100 per cent in every game. If someone is a bit tired then someone else will battle and fight for each other. That's the mentality we need to show through the season."
