Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri says it is important his side improve away from home if they are to win the Premier League title.
Nasri scored twice in City's 3-0 win against Swansea on Sunday and believes that City are heading into an important period.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Nasri said: "Everything is fine at the moment.
"We had a tough first half today but we came back with the best intention in the second half and scored more goals and kept a clean sheet."
The win takes City into third spot, six points behind leaders Arsenal - and Nasri believes that if they can sort out their away form, City can go all the way.
Nasri added: "We have to improve our form away from home and we have the games coming up to do it.
"I think six points is not a lot especially if we can close that gap before we play Arsenal.
"We are coming into an important time and Sir Alex Ferguson always said that if you are up there on Boxing Day then you can be there at the end of the season.
"It's important we respond because we have a lot of games in between at home and away."
