After a disastrous start to the campaign, the Emirates outfit have strung together a run of form that sees them only three points away from the top four, and the French coach is determined to keep the momentum going.
“At the moment I feel we are more focused – saying ‘look I am right’ is less important for me than trying to continue the quality of our team and our results,” he told Arsenal’s official website.
“There is still room for improvement so we are focused on that.
“I am convinced we have been right, but what you want is that people who love Arsenal are happy and I think at the moment to do that we still have a job to do.
“I would say we are a bit more controlled and less cavalier. We are less adventurous when the job is done, I must say.
“You can feel that there is some reserve there if needed. In the second half against West Brom we just kept it serious without going overboard. Overall I would say it is a more mature attitude.
“We were more functional. We did the job properly, with quality and, I must say, with seriousness,” he concluded.
