Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs thinks that his 2014 is still something to build on despite going through a period of struggles as an individual and being a part of the Gunners.

The 25-year-old, who came through the ranks in north London, was a part of the eleven that featured in the final of the FA Cup in May and helped his side in winning the trophy.

"It's been a positive year," Gibbs told

"We've managed to end our drought by bringing a couple of trophies in."

"We've come through a period at the beginning of the year where we were strong in the league and we wanted to produce more at the end of the season than we did, but we have to look at it as a positive.

"Personally, I've played a lot of football and I've managed to get a few more caps for England. I feel that we've come through a difficult but good year."

Despite getting regular minutes from Arsene Wenger, Gibbs wasn't a part of Roy Hodgson's Three Lions squad that played in Brazil.

"I didn't go to the World Cup, so that was an area where I wanted to make a claim," he continued.

"Being back involved in the national team in the last couple of months is good for me, so I have to look forward and say that's something I have managed to get my hands on.

He urged his teammates to do better this season, hoping to end the campaign with major silverwares.

"Another disappointing thing was that we were in such a strong position in the league during January and February - and it was painful to let that get out of our hands," he added.

"We know what we have to do to achieve that and we're hungry for more. It was a good time and hopefully we can do it again."
