We're approaching another pivotal point in our season.
After Thursday's Europa League last-32 second-leg tie against Benfica, four of our next five Premier League games come against teams above us in the table.
And Mikel Arteta knows it's an opportunity to get us back where we belong in the league.
"That's when we will define our season, if we are able to close the gaps in those games with them," he said.
"It's going to create some momentum for us and we're going to get closer to them. We know that the margins for error are minimal with the season that we've had in previous months, so we need to kick on.
"We want to be us. It doesn't matter who we play. I want to see a team that plays with the character and personality that we have shown in recent months. I want us to keep continue maintaining that line.
"If we do that, we will cause problems to any team. But we need to do that from the beginning. We obviously want to show other teams respect but still be true to ourselves."
