Eduardo has expressed his happiness with life at Arsenal and hopes to add more goals to his game over the coming months.
The Croatian striker has been hampered by one or two niggling injury problems during the early part of the season and he admits it has taken some time for him to get sharp.
He has been playing well in recent weeks but squandered a couple of glorious opportunities in the 3-0 victory over Tottenham at Emirates Stadium.
Eduardo is determined to start finding the target more consistently as the Gunners look to end a trophy drought stretching back to the 2005 FA Cup.
"My form is quite good and I know that goals will come," the 26-year-old told Sportske Novosti.
"Against Tottenham I missed two great chances but no worries - I'm feeling great, I don't have any problems.
"Of course, I'm hungry for goals, just like Arsenal are hungry for trophies."
The chances should keep coming for Eduardo as Arsenal have made a magnificent start to the season, keeping pace with the leaders in the Premier League and poised to reach the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League.
Eduardo is delighted with the team's progress after some critics doubted them during another quiet summer in terms of transfer activity.
"I am happy because we are playing very good football," he said. "We are attractive and also efficient, we are scoring a lot of goals and the fans are happy.
"Everything is in place and our ambitions are growing stronger and stronger.
"We all believe so much that we will fight for top spot in the Premier League and also in Europe until the very end.
"Confidence is sky high which of course is not surprising, as our results are really very good.
"Now we are so proud, because at the start of the season everybody wrote us off.
"Nobody believed that we were good enough to play with the big boys. But we can and this is such a big motivation for us."
