Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner admits the next month is crucial in terms of the Gunners' season.
Bendtner, 23, found the back of the net to open the scoring during his side's 2-1 win over Huddersfield on Sunday and is eagerly anticipating an important run of fixtures.
Arsenal resume their Premier League title fight against Everton on Tuesday night while they face a mouth-watering double-header against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League in February.
"This next month is a bit of a decider," Bendtner said.
"Two cups will be decided and there are matches which will have a massive influence on the Premier League as well.
"February is a big month for us and at the end of it we will see where we are at. Hopefully it will all look fantastic."
Arsene Wenger's side host the Toffees at the Emirates just two days after their FA Cup clash with the League One Terriers.
"It is always difficult to play again so quickly. We have played a lot of games, but we are sportsmen and this is what we have to do," Bendtner added.
"We have to be up for the challenge and be ready.
"People have said before that if we were not at our best games would end in draws.
"This season we have turned those question marks into victories, and that is what is making us stronger game by game."
Samir Nasri picked up a hamstring injury at the weekend that will rule him out for the first leg tie against Barca.
Bendtner knows the Frenchman's absence is a blow but he believes other players have what it takes to step up to the plate.
He remarked: "Samir has been very important and scored some great goals. He can win games by himself, so obviously we will miss him - but someone else will have to step up and take his place."
