Arsenal defender Mikael Silvestre is eyeing consistency after the Gunners made it back-to-back wins in all competitions.
Arsene Wenger's side have endured a patchy start to the season following Premier League losses to Fulham and Hull City, and a late draw at Sunderland.
However, Arsenal have demonstrated they are returning to form after victories over Everton last weekend and Fenerbahce in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night.
Silvestre, who signed at Emirates Stadium from rivals Manchester United this summer, cast an experienced figure in Turkey as he marshalled a largely make-shift backline.
He said: "At United, I didn't have to shout that much to guide my partners. It is a responsibility, but when I signed for Arsenal I accepted it straight away.
"It was not easy to come here with a good atmosphere against us and I think we coped not too bad with the experienced players we played against.
"It was a good game to improve and learn from. Hopefully we can get some consistency."
The Frenchman added on the club's official website: "We are looking to guarantee that we finish top of this group as early as possible so that we can get ready for the next step.
"Our aim is to play the kind of football that can take us to the final."
