luca_1660679aLukas Podolski has urged Arsenal to build on their 5-1 mauling of West Ham and charge back into the top four.

The Gunners sit in sixth spot in the Premier League and are within four points of arch-rivals Tottenham following last night?s emphatic home win.

Podolski, 27, said: ?It was one game and we have three points which is important, but we have 15 games more to play.

?It is not about saying, ?today Arsenal are back?, because we need more of these games and more of these points. Then I think we are back in the top four.

?There is enough time to get back in the top four, and a lot of points to play for.

?We need more of these games and then we are back in the first four.

?We must believe in our game and our players.

?After the two defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea, the atmosphere was not so good, but now we have won 5-1 and we look to the next game in the FA Cup.?

Podolski chalked up his 11th goal of the season last night following his ?11million summer move from Cologne.

Yet the German hitman has played only a full 90 minutes in the Premier League once, and was again substituted during the West Ham game.

Podolski said: ?When you are a footballer, you will not always play 90 minutes. Sometimes you are not happy, but this is not important for me.

?I do it well ? I fight for Arsenal, for the club and team and this for me is important.

?We have a lot of great players. The coaches don?t change the full-back or centre-back ? you change always the positions in the front who create something.

?You have great players and it is not a problem when I am substituted.?
