Andrey Arshavin confident Arsenal will end trophy drought next season

Andrey Arshavin is convinced Arsenal will be better equipped to win a trophy next season as they have learned how to fight until the bitter end. The Gunners have scored more late goals than any other Premier League side this season and Arshavin believes only rotten luck with injuries has prevented them turning this steel into silverware. He said: 'We have got a lot of goals at the end of the games, we managed to do some comebacks and we have to use that spirit next season. We can fight again next season.' On a mission: Arshavin is determined to give fans something to cheer next year The Russian has been sidelined with a calf injury since the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Barcelona but he could be back for Saturday's clash with Manchester City. He told Arsenal's official website: 'It was a shame for me. I was watching as my team was losing [at Barcelona and Tottenham] but it was a shame because I could not help my team-mates. 'This season has been tough, tight, sometimes it was even difficult for me and my team but in general it was not bad. Hopefully we will win the last three games. I am recovering and I hope to be back for Manchester City.' Back in action: Arsenal have missed Dutch striker Van Persie Arshavin is glad to see Robin van Persie back in the side after the striker returned from a five-month lay-off with an ankle injury. He added: 'Unfortunately it [Van Persie's return] is slightly too late to win a trophy. He had a big impact last season and he has done well before his injury, so he is showing his quality. 'It would be easier for us [if we had not had the injuries]. I cannot say we would be champions but it would be easier for us.'  I'm Gunner stay!
