Wojciech Szczesny: Knows Arsenal must bounce back against Wigan at the weekend

The Gunners are fighting to finish fourth in the Premier League after Sunday's 3-0 defeat at Goodison Park left them just a point above Everton in the race for UEFA Champions League qualification, having also played an extra game.

They can still claim some silverware this season after making it through to the last four of the FA Cup, and Szczesny is determined to avoid another slip-up at Wembley on Saturday.

He said: "The FA Cup game becomes massive now. Obviously it is the only trophy we can win.

"It would be a massive boost for the club and a lift for the team if we could win it for the fans. We have plenty to play for still.

"We have an FA Cup semi-final and we are still in fourth in the Premier League so it is up to us to switch on very quickly, focus and forget about this.

"I think we have to put it behind us and switch on. I hope we can kick on and get back to where we want to be."

Arsenal have played in the Champions League for 16 years in a row and Szczesny hopes their experience will help them to stay ahead of Everton.

He added: "We can do it. We have people who have been there and know how to do it.

"We have managed to do it every single time in the past, so even though we have not been at our very best, we know we can pick ourselves up and still get there.

"The defeat against Everton hurts of course. It was bad. But we have experience in getting into the top four, and that will help us this time."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
