Szczesny puts positive spin on Arsenal's Emirates Cup disaster

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has taken some positives out of the weekend's Emirates Cup failure played in front of disappointed home fans. The Gunners failed to win their annual pre-season tournament for the second time in five years by drawing 2-2 with Boca Juniors on Saturday and 1-1 with winners New York Red Bulls 1-1 yesterday but Szczesny was able to put a positive spin on the weekend's shortcomings.

"I'm confident, from what we've seen so far," said the 21-year old. "Hopefully, we can step up a level and use the experience of last season to win the Premier League."

And the promising Polish shot-stopper said that the Gunners should be aiming at the title and not just a Champions League finish.

"That's not the way I see it. I see it that we are Arsenal Football Club and we should do our best to win the Premier League, not fight for a top-four place," he added.

"I start the season thinking that we should win the Premier League. I feel we have the quality to do so."
