Wojciech Szczesny is confident Arsenal will end their eight year trophy drought in 2014 by winning the Premier League title.
The Polish international knows the last eight years have been tough for the Emirates faithful and is determined to end the fans agony.
Szczesny said: 'I’m very positive, 'We want to win trophies this time.
'The mood around the club is much better than it was at the start of the season. People maybe didn’t believe in this team as much as they do now.
'Our confidence is still quite high and we believe that we can go and do it this year. We’re looking forward to proving that.
'I don’t think the belief within the group was ever missing. This year we’ve just been more consistent.
'That’s made all the difference. We have to keep it going.
'Winning the first trophy is so important. We’ve been missing a trophy for quite a few years and that’s not good enough for such a big club.
'But we enjoy the pressure because we believe that we can be the team that will deliver for the fans and for the club.'
Arsenal take on West Ham at Upton Park on Boxing Day and they then face Newcastle, Aston Villa, Cardiff, Fulham and Southampton before the end of January.
Szczesny believes the next three fixtures could decide who comes out on top in May.
'This Christmas period is going to have a huge bearing on the season,' he added.
