Podolski joined the Gunners in a £10.9million deal from Cologne this summer.
“The Premier League has five or six teams who can play for the title and we are one of them,” he told Arsenal’s official website.
“We really want to win this trophy and I hope I can score a lot of goals and make some assists to help the club in the Premier League.
“When you are a footballer you must be ready – you’re on the pitch to win. Whether it is against Cologne or against Sunderland, you are a footballer and you must be ready to win matches.”
