Arteta up for the cups

ARSENAL midfielder Mikel Arteta believes his new club have the quality to end their trophy drought.

The Spaniard, a deadline day signing from Everton, helped the Gunners begin their Champions League campaign with a highly creditable draw at the home of German champions Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, and believes he has seen enough from his new team-mates to be sure a six-year wait for a trophy will soon be over.

He said: “The challenge here is to win trophies and at Everton I didn’t have the chance to do that. Hopefully, we are going to have it here. We all need to be together and we have to make sure we are close.”
