Arsenal star Wojciech Szczesny believes that the Gunners can challenge Manchester United and Manchester City for the title next season.

The north London club sit in third place, albeit 18 points behind the Red Devils with three games remaining but the Pole believes his side can cut the gap 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.”
