Mariner believes Gunners supporters need to be realistic despite good early form.
Arsenal took their incredible winning streak – including the penalties success against West Bromwich Albion in the League Cup – to 10 last night, with the Champions League victory over Napoli.
This superb early form in 2013/14 sees the Gunners top both the Premier League and their European group and Arsene Wenger is the darling of the Emirates Stadium.
Yet former striker Paul Mariner has warned fans of the club that they should be realistic and that this great start isn’t necessarily a template for the whole campaign.
“People need to put the brakes on slightly,” Mariner told talkSPORT.
“They’ve had two fantastic results and are sitting pretty on the top of their Champions League group at the moment, but they have some very difficult games coming up.
“They’ve got the real ‘meat on the bones’ in the Premier League coming up in November and December. They’ve also got some tough Champions League games.”
Wenger’s men have got a tough run of fixtures coming up in October and November, which involves playing Borussia Dortmund twice, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United, in less than three weeks.
As the side found out so drastically last season, a good run can end dramatically in a short space of time and the chase for trophies can be quashed within weeks.
However, with new signings Mesut Ozil and Mathieu Flamini performing brilliantly and Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud in great form, things seem good at the Emirates currently.
