Carl Jenkinson says his fellow Arsenal fans are due for great success this season.

Right-back Jenkinson, a £1million capture from Charlton last summer, also says the Gunners squad is aware they must try to ­ collect some silverware in the coming campaign.

He told the Daily Star Sunday: "This season will be huge. We feel it as much as the fans and we ­desperately want to win a trophy and be successful.

"That is something we are going to work on as a team this season and we will deliver for the fans, hopefully."

Jenkinson, whose dad has had a season ticket at ­Arsenal for more than 40 years, spent three months out injured with a bad back last term - but is confident he can ­continue to improve and challenge Bacary Sagna for the starting right-back spot.

He said: "The more minutes I play, the more ­comfortable I am to push on. I can't wait for the new season."
