Arsenal can't afford another trophyless season - Van Persie

Arsenal striker Robin van Persie says another trophyless season won't be good enough.

He said: "Arsenal have to win something every year, that is our aim. If it's not happening, everyone is disappointed. I want to win as much as possible. Just look around at what is here, at the stadium.

"Any of the top four can win the title. I am not going to say we are going to win it because you never know. But I am committed to win it and so is everyone here."

Van Persie, 25 tomorrow, hopes to put two years of injury problems behind him and help Arsenal continue last season's progress, when they finished four points behind champions United.

"I just do not want to think about that negative stuff," he said.
