Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is targeting victory over Manchester United in an effort to lift the club's spirits.

The Gunners suffered a demoralising 4-3 defeat on aggregate at the hands of Barcelona in the Champions League, and the FA Cup is one of the last trophy chances for the Emirates outfit after such a promising start to the season.

Defeat to Birmingham in the Carling Cup final is another low point that's come in recent weeks, but a win over arch-rivals United could springboard the club towards a potential double.

"I have said since the start of the season that we will go for all of the competitions. We have got two left and we lost one in the last minute, we played another, against the super favourite of the Champions League, and we lost under special circumstances," the Frenchman told

"We are disappointed, but we want to focus on our next target, and we have big targets in front of us."


Heads could easily go down in the Arsenal camp, but with two vital months left in the campaign it will be crucial that the north London side continue to push for trophies.

"We need to keep the right attitude to turn the luck around on our side a little bit," the Arsenal boss concluded.
