Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says his side's improved cutting edge is in part down to the influence of Mesut Ozil, the club's record signing.
Ozil joined from Real Madrid on deadline day and the Gunners have won every game in which the German international has played, including the weekend's game at Swansea City.
In Arsenal's 10 games this season they have already scored 21 goals with Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey among those already into their stride this season and Wenger says the improvement of his squad coupled with Ozil's introduction has inspired the club's goalscoring streak.
"First of all that's linked with young players who improve naturally in the final pass," Wenger said after the 2-1 win over Swansea. "We have added Ozil who can give a good ball in the final third and at the moment we have more confidence as well."
Ramsey netted his eighth goal of the season as Arsenal returned to the top of the Premier League with the win at the Liberty Stadium.
The Welsh international has excelled in the early weeks of the season and has inspired a run of nine successive wins in all competitions with a succession of goals which already represents the best season of his career.
Coming three years after his career was threatened following a broken leg against Stoke City, Wenger admits he is surprised but delighted with Ramsey's scoring streak.
"Honestly I could not predict that," the Arsenal manager added. "The only thing I can say is that he was always in good positions in the box and because he has improved his technique he doesn't rush his decisions.
"Even the goal he scored today he needed a good touch, go past a player and finish quickly. Before, he used to rush his finishing but now he is more confident.
"I wish, but finishing is a bit cyclic because he will not score 38 goals in a season and you have to accept that. But it's good you have players from midfield who can score."
