Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes the forthcoming run of home games gives his team the chance to revitalise their title challenge.
The Gunners are currently seventh in the table, 12 points behind leaders Manchester United as they prepare to entertain Swansea on Saturday.
West Brom, West Ham and Newcastle will all arrive at the Emirates before the turn of the year, and Wenger believes the schedule provides a great opportunity for Arsenal.
"At the moment the two Manchester sides (are top)," Wenger said. "They have not been spectacular but efficient, and they have made the maximum of the chances they have created.
"For example, Manchester United have already lost three games and have lost in the Champions League as well.
"It is exactly what we have done but they took more points and had less draws than we did. That has been the difference until now.
"We will come back. Now we have six games, four at home, and if we do well in this block I think we have a chance to come back. But of course it is vital for us to do well in these games."
