Stephan Lichtsteiner says Arsenal are working hard to finesse their game under Unai Emery’s guidance and his teammates to remain hungry in training every day.
A 3-1 victory over Brentford in the Carabao Cup means the Gunners have extended winning streak to six games, however, the veteran Swiss warned against complacency by underlining the importance of small details in the chase for silverware.
“We want to play for titles – each title, more and bigger ones,” he told the Evening Standard on Wednesday.
“All titles are important for this club and we just want to try and win.
“We need to be hungry in training every day and in the games to see the smallest details.
“It’s often that the small details make the difference and that’s what we’re working on. I think we have a big team with great quality, we’re just working more and more on the details and then we’ll come back to the highest level.”
The Gunners overcame the Bees courtesy of a Danny Welbeck brace and a late Alex Lacazette strike. Despite coasting in the first half, Emery’s men struggled after the break, particularly after Alan Judge’s free-kick swung momentum the way of the visitors.
“Congratulations to Brentford,” Lichtsteiner reflected. “They are a good team. I think in the first half we had an almost perfect game, we could or we should have been 3-0 up and then the game would have been finished.
“Then it was 2-1. It was a difficult game but we were good and it’s also important to win.”
