Arsenal travel to Hull City on Saturday (kick off 5.30pm) unbeaten in the Barclays Premier League for nearly two months - but with Robin van Persie admitting he is feeling the fans' frustration with the Gunners languishing in fifth place, three points behind Aston Villa.

"Yes, and I am like them," Van Persie told the Official Matchday Programme. "I feel the same, I want it (a trophy) as badly as them and it can be frustrating when it doesn't happen.

"I'm a positive person though, and I think positively, and I think the fans should do that as well ... but we are doing absolutely everything we can to change it.

"The main thing is to finally get silverware, but there is a clear picture here of how to achieve that. We need to stick to it - because this is how Arsenal is. The Arsenal way is in our system now, it grows into you, and I don't think it's clever to change your philosophy.

"That's why I like Arsenal, because the players have time to grow into the system, and if we stick to our principles we will get silverware.
