Arshavin: Arsenal need to be at full strength for title push

Arsenal midfielder Andrey Arshavin says only a full strength Gunners squad can hope to challenge for the Premiership title. With Arsenal currently just three points below league leaders Chelsea in the table and due to play Porto in the first knockout round of the Champions League, silverware is within the grasp of Arsene Wenger's side.

But with injured trio Cesc Fabregas, Robin van Persie and Nicklas Bendtner sidelined, Arshavin reveals it will be a hard task unless all their stars are fit.

"My greatest dream is to win a title with my club," he said.

"Naturally, it would be better if we won the Premier League or the Champions League.

"But to do this we need a miracle - which is to start playing finally with our best line-up! I do not think we have had it once so far this season."
