Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny believes the Emirate outfit will end their eight-year trophy drought by winning the Premier League this season, reports The Mirror.

The Gunners have enjoyed a remarkable start to the season, having had some fine displays and they currently sit top of the Premier League table.

And Szczesny believes their recent form can help Arsene Wenger's men bring an end to their eight year trophy drought.   

"I don't want to say nobody can challenge us for a trophy but if we are at our best we will win a trophy and that is all that matters," the goalkeeper told reporters.

"I wouldn't say we have proved everyone wrong and passed all the tests. I will say that when we get our hands on a trophy in May.

"I think what is important is what we believe in and we believe that we are good enough with the players we have got and the work we are doing to win the Premier League.

"We have shown that to people over the last six months or so. We know that if we just carry on doing the same thing we will show people that this team and these players are good enough to win a trophy without any extra additions or extra work that people are talking about. We certainly believe we can do it.

"We need to make sure we continue doing what we have been doing recently and keep getting the results."

And, with the addition of a playmaker like Mesut Ozil into the squad, the Poland stopper has also tipped the Gunners to beat any team in the world.

Szczesny believes the Gunners' consistency over the past 12 months puts them in a great position to succeed this season. 

"It is quite an enjoyable time to be around the training ground,” he added. "When results go your way everything seems to be in the right place and everyone in a great mood so we are all happy.

"But what we want to do is make sure we keep it going and not just rest on our laurels and think we have done it now.

"There is no reason not to [have that belief]. When you look at the last few months almost 12 months really because it is not only this season we’ve been doing well.

"It was the last two or three months of last season, where we went unbeaten for a few games. We are confident that we see the quality is there and we know that when we play at our very best and do it consistently well, we can beat anyone basically.

"A couple of years ago there was a case of not being consistent enough individually as a team but now you can see that whoever comes into the team, whoever comes in does a fantastic job. We are at our best at the right and it seems to be bringing results."

The Gunners lost their last outing to Premier League champions Manchester United and will be desperate to return to winning ways this weekend.

Arsene Wenger's lead was cut at the top and they play host to high flyer Southampton this weekend.
