Arsenal crop gunning for trophies

Next Story

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere believes victory in the Carling Cup final could open the trophy floodgates at the Emirates.

The England international teenager has become a regular in the Gunners' starting line-up this season after a successful loan stint at Bolton last term, and the midfielder has already set his sights on more than one success this season.

Arsenal will play Birmingham City at Wembley in February with the chance to win their first trophy in five years, and Wilshere is confident that victory could create further opportunities in the later stages of the season.

"It has been so long that we have almost forgotten what it is like. We need to bring that back into the club," said Wilshere.

"This is a big club and we need trophies. Any trophy is a trophy and if we can win one in February, it will give us confidence for the rest of the season. We know that if we win one it will open up more for us."


Arsenal are still in the hunt for four trophies this season, and will continue their charge in the FA Cup against Huddersfield Town this weekend following the replay victory against Leeds United in the third round.

Very much in the title race, the Gunners sit five points behind Manchester United and second in the Barclays Premier League. The Red Devils still have to travel to the Emirates in April.

The Champions League also remains on the agenda for Arsenal, although the last 16 draw was not kind with Spanish champions Barcelona their opponents.

"There is a hunger among the players to win something," the young Arsenal ace finished.
