Johan Djourou says he is excited to be playing at Wembley for the first time in his career for the Carling Cup final this Sunday.
Arsenal will face Birmingham City at the famous ground for a chance to win their first trophy since the FA Cup in 2005.
After missing the entire season through injury last year, Djourou is particularly excited at the opportunity to play a part in bringing home some silverware for the Gunners.
He said: "It is a great honour to play at Wembley as it has such a massive history.
"It will be the first time for me to play there, so it will be a very big experience and something I am very proud to be involved in.
"Winning would mean a lot to us as a team. It would show how much we have learned, but it will be a difficult game and we will have to fight to win it.
"For me, it would be the icing on the cake - it was tough for me last year with injuries - and if we could win this it would be fantastic."
The Swiss centre-back admits it would be a big weight off the shoulders of the players if they could finally win something, to shut up the critics who question the team's winning mentality.
He added: A lot of people talk about how long it is since Arsenal have won a trophy, so to win our first one would remove some of that pressure.
"I hope it is the start of us winning a lot of trophies. We are still in competition for four."
It will be the first time for me to play there, so it will be a very big experience and something I am very proud to be involved in.
