Arsenal forward Theo Walcott insists that after the club manage to win one trophy, they won't be able to stop winning them.

The Gunners are set for an eighth successive season without a trophy and it has been a year of upsets for Arsenal as they have been knocked out of both domestic cups by lower league opposition.

In the Capital One Cup they were beaten on penalties by League Two Bradford City and in the FA Cup they lost to Championship side Blackburn Rovers.

The north London outfit are also 3-1 down in their Champions League tie with German side, Bayern Munich with the away leg still to play.

Despite sitting fifth in the league and currently outside the Champions League places, star-man Walcott believes Arsenal can get back to where they belong.

He said: "Once the team wins the first trophy, you will start to see us coming back to where we should be.

"When your team is playing well it makes your job easier and when you are winning games it is fantastic to be a part of it. However, it is when things aren't going too well that you need to stand out and get your team back involved.

"We have got players in the dressing room who can create something out of nothing, and I want to be part of that backbone."

Boss Arsene Wenger has come in for criticism of late, however Walcott suggests the players are trying hard to win a trophy for the man in charge.

He finished by saying: "The boss has always had so much belief in me from a young age, but we haven't won anything for a long time now, so we want to pay him back by winning something. 

"If we don't perform he always takes it back on himself, but at times it is not fair because we are the players that go out there and do it. 

"He definitely lets us know when we are not performing, though, which is the right way to do it."

Arsenal and Walcott are preparing for a massive north London derby this weekend as they face Tottenham Hotspur in a crucial game that will heavily impact the race for the top four.
