Podolski Relishing Trophy Challenge

Lukas Podolski is looking forward to challenging on all fronts, after his double helped secure Arsenal a 4-0 win over Coventry City and book their place in the FA Cup fifth round.

The Gunners are currently at the top of the English Premier League; through to the last 16 of the Champions League as well another step closer to FA Cup glory after Friday’s win at the Emirates.

Arsene Wenger’s men have now won seven in a row and their German striker is relishing the challenge.

"It was an important match for us, the FA Cup is important trophy for the club and in England," he told BT Sport.

"I think the first half was very good, the second half the last 10 minutes was good,” Podolski added.

"The second half we did not play so well and we needed to keep going and create chances for 90 minutes.”

"We were a bit slow, Coventry had a few chances. If they had scored at 2-0 we would have been in trouble. But we are in round five and top of the league, it is a long season but we want to stay there and fight for trophies.”

"We have an important match against Bayern in the Champions League, we're top of the league, we want to stay there and keep fighting."
