Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny believes the team can maintain their good start to the season long enough to claim a first trophy since 2005, ESPN
The Gunners have not claimed a tangible prize since winning the FA Cup on penalties against Manchester United, with more than 13 years passing since. The Poland international understands it will be difficult for Arsene Wenger’s side given the quality of teams with which they are competing, but is sure Arsenal have what it takes.
“I don’t want to say nobody can challenge us for a trophy, but if we are at our best we will win a trophy and that’s all that matters,” Szczesny told the Daily Mirror. “I wouldn’t say we have proved everyone wrong and passed all the tests yet. I will say that when we get our hands on a trophy in May.
“I think what is important is what we believe in and we believe that we are good enough with the players we have got and the work we are doing to win the Premier League, he added.”There is no reason not to [have belief],” Szczesny continued. “When you look at the last few months almost 12 months really because it is not only this season we’ve been doing well.”
Arsenal are currently two points clear of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table, having lost twice from their opening 11 games. The North London club are also joint top of Champions League Group F, level on points with Napoli, their opposition in the final group game in December.
