Jack Wilshere feels Arsenal are just too good not to be getting their hands on silverware and believes victory in the Carling Cup final against Birmingham on Sunday can be the start of bigger things.

Wilshere has found himself a central part of Arsene Wenger's young side, who must do without captain Cesc Fabregas and England winger Theo Walcott at Wembley because of injury.

The Gunners have not delivered any additions to the trophy cabinet since moving to Emirates Stadium in 2006, and Wilshere told Arsenal TV Online: "I am really looking forward to Sunday, it will be the biggest game of my life so far. If we can win, it will give us confidence for the rest of the season."

He added: "It has been five years since Arsenal won anything and this team is too good not to win things.

"Every game brings pressure when you are at a big club like Arsenal.

"The cup final is a one-off game and anything can happen, so we have to be ready.

"We just have to play our own game, because on our day, we can beat anyone.

"Hopefully we can do it for the fans and then bring more at the end of the season."
