Arsenal just need to find some consistency and they will bring trophies back to Emirates Stadium next season, according to Wojciech Szczesny.
The Gunners’ goalkeeper believes their form over the past two months has proved that Arsene Wenger’s side have the quality to mount a title challenge, but lamented the lack of a consistent quality performances over the season.
The Poland international admitted it was disappointing to be ending the campaign empty-handed, but was optimistic about the current side’s future and urged his team-mates to concentrate on finishing third in the Premier League.
“When you play for this club you want to win trophies. This club deserves trophies and we didn't get any this year so it's always disappointing,” he told the official Arsenal website.
“I think the quality is there. We all know it - we have the quality to fight for trophies in Europe and this country. It's just consistency that has been a bit of a problem for us this year.”
Wenger has seen his side move to third in the table, overtaking rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, but two recent blips against QPR and Wigan, alongside a draw with Roberto di Matteo’s side, have left them just thee points ahead of in-form Newcastle United and having played an extra game.
They have three games remaining and will finish third if they take maximum points so Szczesny believes it is an opportunity to show they are among the elite in the league, able to challenge for the highest honours.
“I think if you look over the last couple of months we're probably one of the best teams in the Premier League,” he added.
“So we've got three games to go and we need to win all three and we'll finish third.
“The team's getting more experienced and hopefully we've got the experience to win trophies next year.”
