Walcott insists Arsenal will end trophy drought soon

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott believes the Gunners have the pieces in place to win a first trophy since 2005 in the near future, ESPN has reported. The England international added that he shares the supporters’ frustration over the indifferent form that has cost the club the chance to claim any silverware this season.

As the campaign draws to a close Arsenal are out of the running to win the Premier League title, 18 points adrift of leaders Manchester United, and were knocked out of the Champions League by Milan, the FA Cup by Sunderland and the Carling Cup by Manchester City. But the Gunners have inched ahead of Tottenham Hotspur in the battle to finish third in the Premier League and thus enter the Champions League group stages directly. Walcott has revealed he feels the Gunners will soon go further and achieve a tangible tournament victory.

Walcott went on: “We have got everything. People are coming out of their shells, playing at the top of their games and staying fit. I am as frustrated as the fans that we can’t do it throughout the season.” Arsenal’s last trophy came by virtue of an FA Cup penalty shootout triumph over Manchester United, seven years ago.
