Robin Van Persie is confident Arsenal can restore the faith of their supporters after a dreadful start to the Barclays Premier League campaign.

The Gunners were beaten 4-3 by an out-of-form Blackburn side on Saturday, in a game which highlighted the north Londoner's limitations at both ends of the pitch.

Arsenal had been leading 2-1 at half-time, but surrendered the lead in a disastrous second period to send them crashing to a third defeat in five league outings.

Arsene Wenger's side currently occupy 15th place in the table - eight points behind leaders Manchester United - and face Bolton next Saturday in what is fast becoming an increasingly important encounter.

And Van Persie knows that they need to redress the balance as soon as possible.


"There is lots of time [left this season], but at some point you need to pick yourself up and prove what you are capable of," said the Arsenal captain. "We are not doing that at the moment and are not consistent enough.

"It just frustrates me, and it is happening too often. Every time we start positively we just keep making the same mistakes and that is surprising.

"It's very important [to get back on track]. Even before the game on Saturday I said to the boys, 'today is a big, big day'. We have to get back-to-back wins, and we just cannot do that at the moment. That is our aim for the next couple of games, we have to win them after each other.

"We just need a couple of good weeks in the Premier League where we get a lot of points, and hopefully we can start next week against Bolton."
