Nicklas Bendtner wants to fire Arsenal to silverware now that the striker believes he has returned stronger than ever from injury.
The Denmark international has been sidelined with long-standing groin injuries, but made his first appearance of the season when coming off the bench against Birmingham last Saturday.
Bendtner, 22, now thinks that he has come back at the highest level of fitness in his career and he is determined to help Arsenal end their infamous five-year trophy drought.
"I picked up the injury at Spurs last season and since then there'd always be a little problem," he told his club's official website ahead of Sunday's important trip to Manchester City.
"I want to be here, score all the goals I can and help the team win in every competition we enter. I'll be doing everything to contribute at my highest level."
Bendtner said of his fitness: "I would say I'm in the best physical shape ever. It's definitely my intention to come back very strongly and show everyone what they've been missing.
"Obviously the final little bit of sharpness you can only get in games, but apart from that I feel strong, and all that I've done physically, the running and everything, is so much sharper.
"My body's sharper in general and I think my age has to do with it because you've grown more into your body when you're 22, and it's better than when you're 20. I can see that I am physically in better shape, and that's how I feel too."
