Tomas Rosicky believes the next three weeks will prove to be the most crucial in Arsenal's season.
The Gunners are currently top of the Premier League by virtue of goals scored but now face a tricky run of fixtures.
After Sunday's FA Cup Fourth Round trip to Stoke, Arsène Wenger's side travel to Aston Villa. They will then host Manchester United, take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and welcome Liverpool to Emirates Stadium on February 10.
Rosicky believes the nature of Wednesday's 4-2 win over Bolton will help boost the side's confidence ahead of those games and says confidence is brimming within the Club.
"We are definitely up for the title," he said.
"I think everybody knows that the coming weeks are the critical ones in the whole season and I would say the win over Bolton came right on time for the team. For the confidence of the team, it is absolutely great.
"I think the togetherness in this side is very good. If you don't have this, you don't turn games around. It is very important that this characteristic is in the team."
The Czech midfielder believes consistency will be the key to winning the Premier League and hopes Arsenal can continue their unbeaten run of form.
"Since the loss against Chelsea we started something new again and went on a run," he said. "You can see how quickly it can change in this league.
"Chelsea didn't win a few games after winning here. You have to be consistent and that's what we want to be."
