West Brom defender Jonas Olsson believes the newly-promoted club could have more points from their opening matches.
The Baggies have made a solid start to the new campaign with their weekend win over Birmingham taking their tally to seven points from five matches.
Olsson, who found the back of the net in their 3-1 win over their Midlands rivals, insists their form has lifted everyone's confidence.
West Brom tackle Manchester City in the Carling Cup on Wednesday before going head-to-head with Arsenal at Emirates Stadium.
The Swedish stopper knows it will be difficult in North London at the weekend, but sees no reason why they cannot secure an upset.
"We feel like we could have had a few more points," said Olsson to the Birmingham Mail.
"Seven after five games is pretty good and we'll go to the Emirates and try and get something out of that game.
"It will be difficult but we feel, like we did at Anfield, that on a good day we can get something out of any game.
"We'll go there with confidence but first we have the Carling Cup. They are live or die and that's exciting.
"The key for us to staying up is making The Hawthorns a fortress. So far, so good - let's keep it up.
"Saturday's win against Birmingham was a good result. It gives us a boost - and in a derby is nice as well.
"The nicest wins are when you come from behind. It strengthens the confidence and morale."
