Theo Walcott thinks the goals could flow for him after getting off the mark in Marseille on Wednesday.
The England international executed a perfect volley into the top corner to give Arsenal the lead after 64 minutes at Stade Velodrome and they ran out 2-1 winners thanks to Aaron Ramsey's sixth goal of the season.
Walcott squandered chances at Sunderland on Saturday but was deadly in France - and he wants much more of that.
"We just need to be a bit more consistent at home now, that's the next big step. If we show that, we can really go far this season. I really believe that"
"The cross came in and the full back missed it," Walcott told Arsenal Player. "It felt like the ball was in the air for a decade and I managed to keep my eye on it and [it was] pure technique into the top corner.
"It meant a lot getting off the mark [for the season]. Hopefully there are going to be more to come now. I started pretty late last year and I finished as top goalscorer so it's a good sign. I'm pretty sure of that."
Arsenal's club record of consecutive away wins now stretches to 10 games and Walcott has been a big part of that.
"It just shows how consistent we are away from home," he said. "We just need to be a bit more consistent at home now, that's the next big step. If we show that, we can really go far this season. I really believe that.
"That record shows how much hard work everyone has [done] and it's definitely something to be proud of, being part of that. It just shows how special this team is and how gifted these players are. I think we're starting to believe that and you can see that in the performances.
"The likes of Aaron Ramsey has shone in every single game. It's beautiful to play with him. It's fantastic to see him playing very well. He's had a lot of injury problems and I'm so happy for him."
