Reyes: Arsenal can end trophy drought

Atletico Madrid forward Jose Antonio Reyes has warned Manchester United and Chelsea of the threat that his former club Arsenal pose, and has backed the Gunners to finally end their trophy drought this season.

Arsenal currently lie second in the Premier League following a scintillating start to the campaign that seen them net no fewer than 36 goals in their opening 11 league games.

As a result, talk has centred around Arsene Wenger's side finally securing some silverware for the first time since their 2005 FA Cup triumph at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff.

And Reyes, who made 69 league appearances for the North London club from 2004-07, says title favourites Chelsea and United should be wary of the Emirates Stadium outfit.

“I would be worried about them [Arsenal] if I was Manchester United or Chelsea,” he said.

“Of course people are disappointed that Arsenal have gone so long without winning a trophy.

“There is pressure building on them to deliver but I am convinced it will come to an end this season.

"They have a strong squad of players who gained valuable experience playing together over a number of years and you can see from their results that the patience Arsene Wenger has with them is finally about to pay off.”
