Mathieu Flamini has underlined Arsenal’s desire to end their nine-year wait to win silverware.

Arsene Wenger’s men, who are currently third in the Premier League table, booked their place in the FA Cup semi-final courtesy of a 4-1 victory over Everton at Emirates Stadium.

We really want a trophy. Everyone was very focused on the [quarter-final] game against Everton because we all know – you win, you’re through

The Gunners face the daunting taske of attempting to overturn a two-goal deficit in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie at Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.

And Flamini vowed to do everything in his power to ensure that the north London side have a shot at winning a trophy this term.

“What I would say is maybe character. That is important, especially in the English league. I’m someone who gives a lot on the pitch, fight for every ball. I’m a fighter, so I do that naturally,” Flamini told the Evening Standard.

“Everyone is giving more – I really have that sensation. Everyone is committed to each other and that’s important.

“We really want a trophy. Everyone was very focused on the [quarter-final] game against Everton because we all know – you win, you’re through.

“You lose, you’re out, so it’s very simple. I can assure you I will do everything I can to make a difference.”
