Too early for title talks: Wenger

An opening goal from Jack Wilshere in Arsenal's 4-1 Premier League win over Norwich City on Saturday was described by manager Arsene Wenger as one of the best he had seen in his 17 years at the north London club.

Wilshere volleyed home in the 18th minute after exchanging four quick passes with Olivier Giroud. Mesut Ozil scored twice and Aaron Ramsey grabbed his ninth of the season to help Arsenal to a two-point lead at the top of the table. "All the four goals were great but the first was exceptional," Wenger told a post-match news conference. "It was one of the best in my time here for sure."

Wenger said Arsenal, who have not won the league since 2004, were better placed than they had been in any October of recent years. But he stressed the jury was still out on whether they had the resources to take this season's title.

"We have a good attitude and good solidarity level. We have real quality that is clear," he said. "But how far will we go? How consistent will we be? We will have to see.

"We come out of a long period where at this point in October most of the time in recent years...we were already behind," added Wenger.
