Gael Clichy has admitted claiming glory again with Arsenal has become an 'obsession'.
The Gunners are without a trophy since they beat Manchester United on penalties in the 2005 FA Cup final.
Clichy, who missed the aforementioned showpiece through injury, is the only remaining member in the current Gunners squad that was part of the 2003/04 'Invincibles' side.
And the France left-back concedes he is more hungry than ever to end Arsenal's search for silverware.
"It has become an obsession," he said in the Guardian.
"When you play for a club like Arsenal, you don't lack the mentality. You are a winner.
"To be at the top level, whether it's NBA, NFL or whatever, you are a winner.
"If we play for Arsenal instead of another club in another country with smaller teams, it's because we have the winning mentality.
"After, it is other things that make the difference."
Clichy went on to point to Arsenal's record with injuries, highlighting that the Gunners were missing several key players in their recent 2-0 loss at Chelsea.
He said: "You don't want to hide behind this but come on. At Chelsea, we missed (Robin) Van Persie, (Cesc) Fabregas, (Theo) Walcott, who was on fire, and (Thomas) Vermaelen.
"Take off (Didier) Drogba, (Frank) Lampard, (Florent) Malouda and (John) Terry from Chelsea and it's a different story.
"The fact is we've been without some massive players and it's quite difficult to cope.
"Football is sometimes not just as simple as 'you are the best team so you are going to win'."
