Cesc Fàbregas admits he is desperate to finally win a trophy with Arsenal after the gunners reached the League Cup final with a 3-1 aggregate win over Ipswich.

Second-half strikes from Nicklas Bendtner, Laurent Koscielny and Fàbregas saw off the Championship side, who took a 1-0 lead from the first leg into Tuesday’s clash.

Arsène Wenger’s men, who have not won a trophy for almost six years, will now play either Birmingham or West Ham at Wembley on 27 February – and Fàbregas believes silverware is overdue for the gunners.

“It is going to be a very difficult final but we will do our best because I think the fans deserve a trophy again at the Emirates,” said Fàbregas

“The goal was to get to the final but it was difficult. We have got to congratulate Ipswich for what they’ve done. We wanted to score an early goal but the key was patience and we did it really well.”

And striker Bendtner insists the gunners are fully focused on delivering a trophy this season. He said: “We do everything we can in every match to win a trophy and now we’re in one final and we’ll do everything we can to try and win it.”
