Santi Cazorla has called on his Arsenal team-mates to string together a run of positive results as the Gunners aim to get their bid for a top-four finish back on track.

Arsenal were beaten 2-1 by local rivals Tottenham last Sunday to leave them five points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea and seven behind Spurs with 10 games to play.

And Cazorla, who has been one of the Gunners’ top performers since moving to The Emirates from Malaga in the summer, is hoping Arsene Wenger’s men can improve their form as the season reaches its climax.

“On the pitch, we have definitely had our ups and downs; there have been good times and bad times,” Cazorla told Arsenal Player.

“I think that the team has lacked a bit of consistency and sometimes we have made mistakes that have cost us dearly. Removing these from our game will help us improve in the future.”

Cazorla, 28, feels that he has had no trouble adapting to the rigours of the Premier League since his transfer last summer.

He added: “I think I’ve had a positive seven months personally as I have been able to come to a team like Arsenal and play in a great league like the Premier League.

“It hasn’t been difficult adapting to Arsenal’s style of play or even to the Premier League.

“It is a bit different to La Liga in Spain but I’ve adapted very well and I think Arsenal’s style of play has made it a lot easier for me.

“I was expecting to come into a league that would be a bit more physical, a bit quicker, and had a greater intensity than what I was used to.

“I was prepared for that, especially the physical side, so I don’t think it was hard for me to adapt.”

Arsenal take on Bayern Munich on Wednesday as they look to overturn a 3-1 first-leg deficit in the Champions League last 16.
