Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie has called for his teammates to make the final step in their bid to bring trophies back to the Emirates Stadium.
Sunday's 1-0 win over Manchester United proves that the Gunners are good enough to beat the best, but the result has left Van Persie with a feeling of what might have been.
Having beaten both United and Chelsea at home this season, Arsenal's title credentials were effectively ended by dropped points against the so-called 'lesser' teams in the Barclays Premier League.
"That's what makes you very frustrated," Van Persie told Arsenal TV Online.
"If you look back at a couple of games this year, we didn't let these big games count because we dropped points against other teams. It makes it very frustrating."
Arsene Wenger has always maintained his side are good enough to win trophies, and that given time, his young Gunners will return success to a club that has gone six years without silverware.
"If you look at Manchester United, we can be better than them but they are [most likely] in the Final of the Champions League, and have a big chance of winning the Premier League," Van Persie continued.
"We came so close a couple of times and achieved a Final this year but we need to play at least two or three Finals and be involved in those circumstances.
"We want to be in those positions and it’s up to us to do that. It is time to make that final step."
