Lukas Podolski has revealed that he's unhappy with being substituted on a regular basis this season.

As reported by The Telegraphthe German ace - who has only completed the full 90-minutes on two occasions this season - has admitted that he's not happy with the current situation at the north London outfit. 

Podolski was once again substituted in Arsenal's FA Cup semi-final victory over Wigan Athletic on Saturday afternoon. The forward was replaced by Frenchman Olivier Giroud with the Gunners 1-0 down at Wembley and he's now admitted that he's not happy with being replaced. 

Speaking to reporters, the Arsenal ace said: "Of course. I play and, in the last games, I always come out and of course you cannot be happy when you always go out after 60, 70 minutes. Of course I am not happy always to be substituted.

“It’s the decision of the boss. It’s not always easy when you play for a big club but of course I am not happy to always come out and watch from outside. You cannot be happy with this situation.”

Podolski will now be hoping to feature as the Gunners take on West Ham United at the Emirates tomorrow night. 

Arsenal may be within a great chance of ending their trophy drought this season, but Wenger's side could still miss out on Champions League qualification this season. 

The Gunners will be desperate to secure all three points against Sam Allardyce's side, as they currently sit two points behind fourth placed Everton.
