Diaby desperate to win silverware

The French international has played a part in all three of the

Gunners’ matches so far this campaign, having won two since drawing

against Liverpool at Anfield on the opening weekend. Arsenal showed

their attacking talents in their 6-0 mauling of Blackpool, in which

Diaby scored, as well as a resolute streak to win 2-1 against

Blackburn at Ewood Park on Saturday. But despite the North London

club so often coming up short in their battle for major trophies,

having not won one since the FA Cup in 2005, Diaby believes that

this could be the year they break the cycle. “Each season, it is

the same scenario. All season long, we produce nice football,”

Diaby told France Football. “But at a certain time, we can’t win

the match that would change everything. “Now, I am convinced we can

win the title, even a major title. We won’t be satisfied with the

never-ending image of second each season, believe me.”
