Arsenal full back Kieran Gibbs has warned the Gunners’ Premier League rivals that they have now gelled as a side.

The Gunners may have drawn their first two games, failing to score in either but beat Liverpool 2-0 before the international break and put six past Southampton last weekend.

“People say it was a slow start but I think all we were lacking was a bit of quality in the final third,” said the left back.

“We had a bit of getting to know each other as a team with the new signings, and we look like a new team now.

“That is obviously why it took us a while to get going.

“But I think of the four games we have played so far we have dominated all of them and we want to continue doing that.

“As long as we play the way we want to play, the results should come.”
