Santi Cazorla believes Arsenal can challenge for the Premier League title - providing they find their consistency.
The Gunners have won each of their last three matches without conceding a goal, scoring eight times in the process.
Arsène Wenger’s side host Everton in the Premier League on Saturday, with Cazorla keen for the team to build on their recent run.
“When the team is playing well it’s always easier to find your level and you enjoy it more on the pitch,” he told Arsenal Player. “We hope to keep the level of our performances as high as possible because that’s what’s going to allow us to fight for silverware.
“We need to be more consistent – I think that’s the key for this team.
“We’ve had good seasons but we’ve also had phases during the season when we’ve not being playing well and we’ve dropped points and that’s prevented us from competing with the big teams for the Premier League or the Champions League.
“In recent years that’s what we’ve been lacking. That’s what we need – to be more consistent and focus on each game in turn.
“We always say that if we keep a clean sheet, or if we defend well and concede as few goals as possible, we’re going to win lots of matches because we have players up front that score a lot of goals.
“We create lots of chances in every match we play. We’re confident in our attacking play, but we need to [continue to] defend better to ensure we’re more solid and make sure we pick up more points.
