5 Players That Need to Step Up for Arsenal to Win a Trophy

For the first time in years, Arsenal are still in the hunt for silverware with the end of February approaching.

The Gunners have stuttered during this period of the campaign in recent seasons, and it looked like the trend was going to continue after they started a tricky run of fixtures with a 5-1 loss at Liverpool.

A 0-0 draw against Manchester United wasn't encouraging either, but Arsenal responded by beating Liverpool 2-1 in the fifth round of the FA Cup, a competition that Arsene Wenger's side are definitely capable of winning this season. 

The North London outfit do face an uphill battle in the Champions League after losing 2-0 to Bayern Munich at the Emirates, but they once again proved that they can respond to setbacks, producing one of their best performances of the season in a 4-1 win over Sunderland.

The tough matches aren't nearly over though, as the Gunners face a stretch of games that will make or break their season when they play Everton, Bayern Munich, Spurs, Chelsea, Manchester City, and Everton once again.

If Arsenal are to get through that run and still have a shot at winning a trophy, the entire team will need to be at their best.

Here are five players that need to step up their performances for the Gunners to win a trophy this season.
