Kieran Gibbs believes the signs are "fantastic" for next season and says Arsenal have shown in recent weeks that they do not rely too much on Robin van Persie.

The Dutchman has been an inspirational figure for the Gunners this term, producing a series of dazzling displays to help them win games.

However, Gibbs realises that one man cannot carry a team and he has been pleased with the way that everyone in the squad has contributed over the past few weeks.

A seven-match winning run in the Premier League has propelled Arsenal to third and it has been a number of different players turning in the big performances.

Thomas Vermaelen netted the winner against Everton last week, before goals from Theo Walcott, Gibbs and Mikel Arteta sealed a 3-0 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday.

And Gibbs has now challenged Arsenal to take this sort of form forward and enjoy an even more successful campaign in 2012/13.

He said: "We know it's not good to rely on just one player. Robin's one of the best strikers in the world at the moment.

"But I'm sure he'll enjoy sharing the goals with the other players as well .

"Obviously we've got Theo, who's been remarkable over the last couple of games. We've got Gervinho and Aaron Ramsey, who can change games.

"If we keep it all together like this, everyone seems to be hungry, our new signings are gelling. It looks fantastic for next season."
