Sokratis believe we need to play calmly if we are to demonstrate our true quality.
After a difficult period leading up to the international break, the Greek defender is looking to make a fresh start when Southampton visit on Saturday - and believes the close-knit nature of the squad will help them.
“It is a season that has a difficult moment, but we have still a lot of time and we need to improve, we need to play better and of course we have the time to do it. We also have the quality to do it,” Sokratis told Arsenal Player.
“When the results are going good, it is of course very good for the team [that the players are all close] because it gives us confidence.
"The team needs confidence and calm to show the quality we have. This will give confidence also.
“I think we can get [into the top four] because if we find one or two games where we can play very good and have a good result, after the team will take confidence and after that we have the quality. The quality is here but I think we need confidence.”
