Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere says his team must overcome this season's shortcomings to help them bounce back next season.

The Gunners look set to go a sixth year on the spin without a trophy, after losing the Carling Cup final and being knocked-out of the FA Cup and the Champions League in quick succession.

With the club now six points behind league leaders Manchester United with three games left, Arsenal's title ambitions look remote, and Wilshere believes the club won't succeed next season if they don't get over this season's woes.


"We have to win something and we won't win if we keep thinking about those two weeks," Wilshere told Four-Four-Two magazine.

"It [the League Cup final defeat] was devastating, even now the boys still say 'we could have got a trophy there'.

"There was always the psychological feeling if we won that, it would give us the confidence to win more."

Wilshere's side travel to Stoke City on Sunday, knowing they must win to keep their slim title hopes alive, while the division's top two, United and Chelsea meet at Old Trafford.
