Wojciech Szczesny believes Arsenal have shown they have the quality to mount a sustained title bid next season.
After a difficult start to this campaign, Arsène Wenger’s side have risen up to third in the table, fuelling optimism within the squad that they can push for trophies in future.
And while Szczesny admits he is not happy to end this term empty-handed, he has seen plenty of reasons to be hopeful ahead of next season.
“When you play for this Club you want to win trophies,” he said. “This Club deserves trophies and we didn't get any this year so it's always disappointing.
“I think the quality is there. We all know it - we have the quality to fight for trophies in Europe and this country. It's just consistency that has been a bit of a problem for us this year.
“But the team's getting more experienced and hopefully we've got the experience to win trophies next year.
“I think if you look over the last couple of months we're probably one of the best teams in the Premier League. So we've got three games to go and we need to win all three and we'll finish third.”Copyright 2013 The Arsenal Football Club plc.
