Arsene Wenger believes the confidence his Arsenal side have taken from their Champions League first-leg triumph over Barcelona can inspire them to win four trophies this season.

He insists the Gunners will show exactly the same hunger and commitment against League One Leyton Orient in the FA Cup on Sunday that they demonstrated against the Spanish champions.

In stark contrast to recent seasons when Arsenal have prioritised the league and the Champions League, Wenger is set to field a virtual full-strength team against Orient.

He said: "We want to go for every single competition. How far will we go? I personally believe we can go in every competition to the end. But we can as well stop very quickly.

"It's just down to how much we believe and how much commitment we show. What I am convinced of is that we have the hunger and we have some talent and we are committed to going as far as we can."

Arsenal are already in the final of the Carling Cup later this month against Birmingham. They lie second in the Premier League, four points behind Manchester United and their home win against Barcelona gives them an opportunity of progressing to the quarter-finals of the Champions League next month.

Wenger added: "Our destiny will be made by how we focus every time, how much we can mobilise our resources in every single game.

"The intelligent attitude will be to just worry about the next game and the next game is Leyton Orient. We had tough games against Leeds, tough games against Ipswich, a tough game against Huddersfield. We have been warned how difficult it is."
