Matteo Guendouzi has credited the “togetherness” in the Arsenalsquad with propelling the Gunners on a 15-match unbeaten run early in the season.

Arsenal have not lost a game in all competitions since defeat to Chelsea in Unai Emery’s second match in charge, a run that has propelled them into contention for a top four place.

Guendouzi has played a significantly greater role in that run than many expected, featuring in nine of 12 Premier League games and completing the full 90 minutes on three occasions.

“I’m very happy about my start,” Guendouzi said. “After that, the most important for me is the team, we’re on a good run of 15 or 16 games without a loss, which is something we need to continue on.

“We’ve drawn the last three games in the league, but we’re a very solid team, and I hope we can do great things.

“There’s a really good togetherness in the group, and that’s why we’ve made a good start to the season. It really is everyone together. There’s no specific groups, and it shows on the pitch.”

Guendouzi’s impressive form at Arsenal earned the 19-year-old a first call up to the France Under-21s, where he won rave reviews for his performance in a 2-2 draw with Croatia, L’Equipe describing the midfielder as “the boss”.
