Lukas Podolski remains adamant that stuttering Arsenal can rescue their Premier League campaign - despite only winning five of their opening 15 games. The Gunners are currently sitting in mid-table and are a massive 15 points behind leaders Manchester United. But the 27-year-old Germany international believes it is possible for Arsene Wenger's side to ignite their season and close the gap on the leading pack, but insists they must start improving away from home. He told the Daily Express: "Right now we don't speak about the title because we are 15 points behind. "But football is very quick and you win three or four matches and another loses two or three matches and you are in. "We have more than 20 matches to go. When you are sixth or seventh in the table, people say you are not so good, or what has happened to Arsenal? When you play 38 matches then you can see. "We have played a lot of away games where we were the better team but we only got one point. These are the kind of matches that we want to win. We will do this." The former Cologne star feels he has settled into life in north London well - scoring seven goals in 17 games from the wing. Although Podolski remains happy with his role, he has made it clear his best position is down the middle. He said: "I think I have done well but I don't like to speak about me. There are fans who say, 'Podolski score goals, score goals'. But I play on the left side and you must keep tracking back and this is different. "My best position is in the middle and if I am asked to play there I can do it. I feel comfortable on the left side and I think we won't change now with the system. "Arsene Wenger is a good coach, he has authority and straight away I can see he helps players with small things to make them better."
