With the Manchester clubs eliminated from this year’s competition The Gunners are one of the frontrunners, and the England international is eager to be victorious.
“A winner’s medal in the one thing I would like more than anything. When I’m older, I want to look back on my career at the trophies I’ve won – and there are none yet,” he confessed to Mirror Football.
“I haven’t even got anywhere set aside at home for when I do win some medals.
“But the FA Cup is a great opportunity for us this year because some big teams have gone out of the competition early.
“It’s tough to choose between finishing in the top four or winning a trophy – ideally I would like Arsenal to finish fourth, or higher if possible, but we need to win a trophy if we can,” he concluded.
