Desperate Wenger throwing heart and soul into search of silverware

| 23.11.2010

Arsene Wenger has expressed his desire to win trophies and has issued a rallying call to his squad as he searches for an end to the trophy drought.

With Chelsea going 11/10 to win the Premier League for the first time since the start of September, Arsene Wenger is pouring every ounce of managerial skill into securing a first trophy for Arsenal in five years.

Ladbrokes are offering Arsenal up at 5/1 to win the Premier League, the best price of the high street bookmakers, but it may be the Carling Cup, where Arsenal are also a best priced 7/4, that offers Arsenal their best chance of a trophy.

With the Premier League more open than it has been for a long time, Arsenal’s price will only get shorter over the next few months.

But it’s the business end of the season that will determine just how capable Arsenal are of challenging for the Premier League title.

Many Arsenal fans believe that Wenger’s search for footballing perfection is the reason behind Arsenal’s lack of success, but Wenger’s rallying call will excite the Gunners faithful as Wenger declares himself just as hungry for a trophy.

“I want this team to win so much that I am giving every drop of my blood to make sure,” said Wenger.

Arsenal can confirm their place in the Champions League knock-out stages with a win in Portugal against Braga tonight.

Arsenal are 10/11 to beat Braga and that would be a huge boost to the club who are 12/1 to lift the Champions League trophy come the end of the season.

With Arsenal still involved in four competitions, there is plenty of opportunity for Wenger and his Arsenal side to lift some silverware at the end of the season and Arsenal are 7/1 to win the FA Cup.

Chamakh has eight goals in nine Champions League starts and is 5/1 to score first against Braga. See the full Braga vs Arsenal football betting odds here.
