Arsenal winger Theo Walcott hopes success in the Carling Cup will spark a trophy frenzy at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners' failure to win any silverware since 2005 has prompted Arsene Wenger to reassess the importance of the competition and the manager selected some of his more seasoned campaigners for Wednesday night's 4-0 victory at Newcastle as the club claimed a place in the quarter-finals for an eighth successive season.

"This is a great opportunity for us to win the Carling Cup. We want to win trophies," Walcott told Arsenal TV Online. "People might say it's the Mickey Mouse cup and stuff like that but for me, personally, it's a trophy. Our fans have been desperate for us to win a trophy and the players have as well. Hopefully we can win the Carling Cup and it will be one of many."

He added: "If we continue to play football like that it's looking bright for us.

"We take every game seriously but we're getting better with the experience we have now.

"To win 4-0 at Newcastle is a great confidence booster."
