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.
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.”
