ARSENAL are so hot, pundits are backing them to go through the entire Premier League season unbeaten.
But Emmanuel Adebayor is refusing to entertain such thoughts.
The Gunners striker believes his team is proving the doubters wrong but is refusing to contemplate the possibility of the league leaders going through a domestic season unbeaten for the second time in five years.
Adebayor's superb first-half header earned the Gunners a 2-1 victory away to Aston Villa on Saturday to keep Arsene Wenger's side top of the table.
It is all in sharp contrast to when sceptics questioned whether the Gunners would be able to sustain a challenge after the departure of Thierry Henry last summer.
But they will head into tonight's match at Newcastle boasting an eight-month unbeaten league record with their only reversal during the current campaign coming in last week's Champions League game in Seville when they fielded a much-changed side.
Adebayor said: 'Three or four months ago there were people saying 'we are not sure Arsenal are going to finish in the top four', and now they are mentioning we could go unbeaten for the season.
'We don't care what people are saying. The crucial thing is to keep our head on our shoulders, keep on doing a good job, keep on performing like we are now and at the end of the season we can talk about whether we finish unbeaten or not.'
Adebayor feels Arsenal now have the resilience to go with their brilliance - as demonstrated with their resolute display against Villa.
He is also confident Arsenal have the strength in depth to cope despite Alexander Hleb joining Cesc Fabregas on the injury list after receiving a kick on his Achilles.
He said: 'Am I worried about our strength in depth? No, no, no.
'We have a lot of good players, a lot of talented players in the squad and we all trust each other.
'Mathieu Flamini came in against Villa and did a good job and scored. Every player in the squad can do well when they are required.'
