Arsene Wenger keen on FA Cup treble

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is desperate on winning the FA Cup silverware for a third season in a row.

The north Londoners have ended a nine-trophy drought by winning the FA cup over Hull City in the 2013-14 final, while beating Aston Villa at Wembley last season for a record 12th time.

After beating Sunderland 3-1 on Saturday afternoon, the French tactician insists that the Gunners will try to create a history.

“We have only one left to win. We have done it twice. What I will say is we take this competition with a desire to do well in it and to try to win it. It is a long way in the cup and you need a long run,” Wenger told reporters.

“When you play a Premier League team you are always going to have to work. We had a very convincing half and took over more slowly.

“In the first half we went one down and we had to find our way because we were sharp in midfield. After that slowly in the second half we took over, played in their half and scored great goals and created many chances.”

Another victory this season would make the Gunners first club to win the trophy three years in a row since Blackburn Rovers did in between 1884-86.
