Rolando Bianchi feels his confidence is improving now that he is playing regularly for Manchester City.
The big-money signing from Reggina marked his debut with a goal against West Ham in August, but he then struggled to hold down a starting spot.
However, he has netted in his last three Premier League appearances and opened the scoring in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Aston Villa.
Bianchi is pleased with his current form and feels City can secure a European place, if the team start picking up more points away from home.
"I was happy for that goal at Villa, but I can play better," said Bianchi.
"With my team-mates, I can score a lot because they play for me and they put me in the best condition for scoring goals.
"I am now playing a lot of games and, for me, that is important for my confidence. If I play, I can score because I have chances to score.
"It is also important to pick up points away from home if we are to qualify for Europe. At this time of the season, we have a lot of games and, if we collect points away, it is very important for the future."
