Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta insists they have to consistently produce good performances every week if they are not to fall behind in the race for Champions League qualification.
The Gunners' goalless draw at Bolton on Wednesday night was their first point in four league matches and they dropped to seventh in the Barclays Premier League, although still only five points off fourth-placed Chelsea.
"For me it is not good enough. We have the players and the quality to come here (to Bolton) and get a better result than what we got," said the Spaniard.
"It (the race for a top-four place) is going to be tough. We have the talent and quality in the side but we have to show it game by game.
"I am confident because we train together every day and I know how good we are but we have to show it every week not every two or three weeks. It is tough because I am sure Chelsea will go on a good run so we have to go on a good run and win games as we were doing a month ago.
"There are still a lot of games to play and a lot of the season left so I am sure we can get it done. I am not saying we are not performing but there are more details [needed] to score and make the game much easier for us."
Arsenal wasted some good chances in the first half, with Robin van Persie having a header cleared off the line, while Theo Walcott wasted a one-on-one with goalkeeper Adam Bogdan before, in the second half, Van Persie was twice denied by the framework of the goal.
Arteta said they could not afford to pass up as many opportunities again if they want to keep pace with the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Newcastle.
"We had enough chances to win the game comfortably in the first half but we missed too many and it makes it very hard away from home when you don't take them," said the £10million summer signing from Everton.
"At least we kept a clean sheet because we took a lot of risks going forward trying to score."
