Gael Clichy feels that the next seven days could make or break Arsenal's season.
The Gunners' unbeaten start to the Premier League season came to a shuddering end after a 3-2 home defeat to West Brom on Saturday.
Arsene Wenger's side must now travel to Partizan Belgrade in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night before they take on Premier League leaders Chelsea in a top of the table clash next Sunday.
The 25-year-old told the Daily Star Sunday: "We have to play more games away from home to see if this Arsenal side is ready."
The France international insists the North London giants can finally end their long trophy drought this season.
"The truth is that it's now five years since we have won anything. So there is no point talking about it because it has only been a few games.
"We know we can beat anybody at the Emirates but it is our form away that is going to be the key."
Clichy added: "We know we have the players to do it.
"The quality is there."
