Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski believes that the Gunners can win the league title this season, though he admits that it will not be easy.
The Gunners have not lifted the English Premier League crown since the 2003/04 season, when the legendary 'Invincibles' stormed to victory without being beaten for the entire season.
Their last trophy came in the 2005 FA Cup where they beat Manchester United in the final, but Podolski is confident that they can change their fortunes.
"It will not be easy," he told The Daily Mirror. "Everyone thinks it's easy to get a trophy.
"You have five or six teams who fight for first place. It's not like in Spain where it's just two teams and in Germany you just have Dortmund and Bayern.
"It's not easy in England. It's so competitive.
"At Arsenal we have good players, a great coach and great fans. If we can pull it together then I believe we can win the Premier League."
Podolski also revealed that he hopes to improve his personal performance after his first year at the club.
"I will try to play better, score more goals and do some assists for Arsenal," he added. "It's very important that we qualify for the Champions League and fight for the championship.
"It was my first year and I'm very happy. We will see how much I can improve and whether I can get better."
