Tomas Rosicky believes the spirit in Arsenal's camp can spur The Gunners onto 'big things'.
Arsene Wenger's squad demonstrated the strength of their character by coming from a goal down to beat Manchester United 2-1 at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
Whilst the Premiership may be too far out of their reach despite the win, the Londoners are still in contention in all three cup competitions and are hoping to improve on their trophyless campaign last season.
Wenger has always fostered a togetherness amongst his multi-national group of players and summer addition Rosicky believes the vibrant spirit at Emirates Stadium will be key to The Gunners' success in coming seasons.
"You know there is a great spirit within the team, you can achieve big things with this," Rosicky told Pravo.
"The atmosphere in the dressing room is relaxed, without any stress. We don't acknowledge losses, moreover difficult challenges unite us even more.
"We have been doing very well recently.
"For example we won 2-0 against Blackburn, although we were playing with 10 men for almost the whole 90 minutes."
Arsenal are still 12 points shy of league leaders United, and whilst Wenger believes his players can still mount a title challenge, Rosicky remains slightly more circumspect about their chances.
"If our coach says it, I have to believe him," said Rosicky. "[But] we still have a big gap on the leaders.
"We must keep winning, which we have been good at recently.
"We must be well prepared for our next game. In England, everything is possible, it is not okay to give up anything."
