Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted that it is going to be a tough month ahead for his side, who face Liverpool (twice), Bayern Munich and Manchester United in February.
"We want to convince people that we have the quality. When you're in a good position to fight for something then the closer you get to the end, the more vital each game becomes. We have fought very hard to be in this position so let's enjoy it and give it our best.
"It is a good moment for us to win a big game because we have a tough month", Wenger was quoted by Sky Sports.
"At the moment we are on a good run and the best way to continue that is to keep the confidence level high and stay in a strong position in the Premier League."
Arsenal are preparing for the opening clash of this weekend against Liverpool on Saturday.
A win away at Anfield could keep the north London club at the top of the table, but it is going to be hard for Wenger's men to put 100 percent in this game as they are facing Manchester United the following weekend.
Arsenal's good run in the FA Cup and the Champions League could, moreover, weaken the Gunners as they are going to play two major matches - including another confrontation against the German giant Bayern Munich at the Emirates - and one more clash against Brendan Rodgers' men later this month.
But it is not going to be one crucial month for Wenger's side, but more likely two as Arsenal are visiting White Hart Lane and Stamford Bridge in April.
It is clear that Wenger will have to think cleverly in order to be competitive in every single match over the next two or three months.
Wenger's failure to sign a new striker last month could be a disaster as they attempt to maintain their two point lead if Olivier Giroud gets injured.
