Lukas Podolski: Thinks Arsenal can win a trophy

Arsene Wenger's side are currently second in the Premier League table, one point behind Chelsea and have a sixth round FA Cup clash against Everton to look forward to.

Although they suffered a 2-0 defeat against Bayern Munich in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League clash last week, and are still in the tournament, it would appear that their best chance of winning silverware is at home.

And the German international thinks that could make for an exciting end to the season for Arsenal fans.

Podolski told the club's official website: "When you look at the table and compare it to the Bundesliga, you can see that here you've got five or six teams competing for the title.

"It's going to be tight until the end of the season. We've got 11 games left in the league and we have to try to find a way of winning as many of those as we can and get the points in any way possible. We want to be at the top come the end of the season.

"The team spirit is always good here, even after defeats. This is a great team - there's a good atmosphere between us and up until now, we've had a super season. We need to keep that with us now.

"I've been at a few clubs and in different dressing rooms but I've never been in a team with such a strong spirit.

"You feel comfortable here - be it on the pitch or off it. You always look forward to being with the team and I think that helps us in matches."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
