Arsenal made short work of Premier League counterparts Norwich City over the weekend with the club securing a 4-1 victory at home in preparation for their not yet massive, but vitally important bought with Borussia Dortmund in Tuesday's third round of the UEFA Champions League group stage.

Arsene Wenger is hoping to see his side continue to improve with every match, and he was quick to point out that there is always room for improvement with any side during his pre-match press conference:

'We have room for improvement - and being in the position we are in at the moment and knowing we have room for improvement is of course a good feeling.

The 'feel good factor' is down to the quality of the spirit of the team, the solidarity of the players, and their desire to do well.

We know we are a team that looks like being successful - for that you need a special hunger and I believe these players have a special hunger.'

Meanwhile Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was keen to mention that the Gunners will have to be, "wary," of his Polish international teammate, Robert Lewandowski as the Pole is one of the most sought after strikers in the world at the moment as his future is not set to reside with Dortmund following what is his final year of contract with the German Bundesliga club.

Wenger knows that the most important thing is to keep his side focused and playing their best football:

"What is important is that we go into the game and focus on our quality, on our performance. For me that is more important than focusing on Dortmund.

[We want to] come out of the game and feel that we have played at our best. If we do we will be difficult to handle for everybody."

There is expected to be some minor rotation of the squad as Aaron Ramsey will come back into the first team but Thomas Vermaelen still could remain on the sidelines with the continued strong opening campaign that has been seen for Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker.

Mathieu Flamini will miss the match due to a concussion sustained on Saturday, but Mikel Arteta's continued return is ready to maintain the stability that Flamini has given the club's midfield all season.
