Jack Wilshere believes Arsenal's Champions League exit at the hands of Barcelona could be a blessing in disguise.

Arsenal are still fighting for glory on two fronts and Wilshere has urged his teammates to put their European disappointment to one side and go on to win the double.

He said: "We are still in two competitions, just three points behind United in the league and with a game in hand. Maybe now that we are out of Europe, we can be stronger in the league, concentrate on that more, and really push on to try to win it."

Manchester United and Arsenal clash on Saturday at Old Trafford in the quarter-final of the FA Cup, while the Barclays Premier League leaders travel to the Emirates Stadium in early May for what could well be a title decider.

Arsenal are still firmly in the race for their first league triumph 2004 since and still retain an excellent chance of lifting the FA Cup, and Wilshere is backing the Gunners to finally end their trophy drought this season.


"We will be going there to win [on Saturday], and that's what we will do. United still have to come to our place. We are going to take the game to them there and really push on hard in the league now," added the 19-year-old

"We want to win every game. When they come to us, we want to be in front of them. Hopefully we will be."
