5-1: Cristiano Ronaldo hits four as Real Madrid thrash Elche
Bale scored the remaining Whites goal against Elche, who took the lead but had no answer to a team on fire.
"The team played well, with greater balance, control and consistency," said the Italian.
The Welshman scored the equaliser against Elche with his head.
“We're playing very well and if we can keep up this level we'll win a lot of games,” added Arbeloa.
The Portuguese overtook Santillana and made history as he found the net in his 13th straight home La Liga game.
With the goalkeeper, all this summer's signings have made their debuts as Madrid players.
The Mexican power forward averaged 17.6 points and 7.6 rebounds at the World Cup in Spain.
Real Madrid-Rayo Vallecano has been scheduled for Saturday 8 November at 8pm
