The 33 year old Czech playmaker remains convinced he is at the right place to win silverware sooner rather than later.
"It is obviously very difficult to predict how long I can go on for, (but) I feel very good. I don't feel any different than in the past, I don't feel any change in myself.
"All I can say is that I still have a big passion to achieve things and that is really important.
"You must have that force, that drive to go on and achieve something and I definitely still have that.
"I was nearly out of the game because of injury, so I have a different approach now because I know it could end at any point. I just want to be successful with Arsenal.
"I won three titles in the Czech Republic before I left (Sparta Prague), I won the Bundesliga with Dortmund and I still believe I can do it here.
"I wouldn't stay here if I didn't believe.
"The idea of winning the (Premier) League and the Champions League really drives me forward, I love it."
