Oxlade-Chamberlain desperate for Arsenal FA Cup win

Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is desperate for his side to end their nine-year trophy drought by winning the FA Cup, ahead of their semi-final with holders Wigan Athletic, reports ESPN.

With Hull City and Sheffield United contesting the other semi-final on Sunday, Arsenal are considerable favourites to lift the trophy which they won in 2005 for their most recent piece of silverware. This is despite a poor run which has seen the Gunners’ chances of finishing in the top four of the Premier League come under threat from Everton.


And ahead of Saturday’s game against Uwe Rosler’s side at Wembley, Oxlade-Chamberlain said: "I have been here for three seasons and others have only joined this season so in a way, as a club, it is weighing on us, but as players it is not like that," said Oxlade-Chamberlain.


"We have all come together as a fairly new squad and for the time we have been together, we have been building ourselves up to a moment like this. When people say it has been weighing on the club heavily, the players are fully aware of that and we want to make that right.


"But as a group of players, the most important thing is that we have been gelling together over a fairly short period of time, maybe two or three years. So for us it is just trying to do the basics right and working together as a team to win a trophy."
