Arsene Wenger hopes victory in the Carling Cup final could provide the springboard for bigger success for his young Arsenal side this season.

The Gunners secured a Wembley date against either West Ham or Birmingham after they overcame a stubborn Ipswich 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium, having lost the first leg 1-0 a fortnight ago.

However, Wenger also maintains his squad should be confident of delivering in all competitions, with a quadruple still a possibility, and he said: "I get the same question every time, so I say 'we try to win everything we can', but on the other hand it can more get the pressure off the team to deliver in the other competitions."

He added: "It is not the only target we have of the season, we have even bigger targets, but it can help us to achieve the other targets.

"What I am convinced is we will go with the same heart for everything.

"We have a chance to deliver, but it will be down to delivering the needed performance on the day. That is part of mental strength as well."

The Arsenal manager feels his team are on the cusp of turning potential into silverware.

"They are on a natural development process," he said.

"This team is hungry for success.

"You could see they kept going and refused to show any weakness."
