Francis Coquelin has been left frustrated by Arsenals slump after the winter, but says the current side can do something special in the future. Arsenal were top of the league at Christmas, but have won just six of their last 15 league games and were knocked out of both the FA Cup and Champions League at the last 16 stage.They now sit 13 points off leaders Leicester, albeit with a game in hand, and Coquelin could not hide his frustration at the loss in form around February and March. Coquelin was sent off in the 2-2 draw at Tottenham earlier in the season In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports, Coquelin said: Its difficult. The league is not over yet, but its difficult, I give you that. Its frustrating because this season we had quite a lot of injuries at the same times. Santi [Cazorla], Alexis [Sanchez], I got injured as well, and when the team was in a good run.It was difficult to take, but injuries are always going to happen in a season. At the end of the day you have to get the result. It is frustrating, but we had this February, March period where we lost to Swansea, got knocked out of the Champions League, and lost to Manchester United, so it was difficult. I dont think its a mental block. You can have bad periods in November as well, but theres always a part in the season where we drop off a little bit and ease off, playing so well and then suddenly change.When you look at the league this season its crazy as well. You look at the table and I dont think anybody could have predicted it at this time of the year. Its a crazy season, but looking at it, I think everyone believes we could have done something better and been in a stronger position. Arsenal have won just six of their last 15 league games Arsenal have six games remaining to finish the season on a high, but with the pressure piling on manager Arsene Wenger, their summer transfer activity could be defining again.They are without a Premier League trophy since 2004, but Coquelin is convinced the current crop of stars has the talent to achieve more than they currently are.With the talent weve got and the potential weve got, we should be higher in the table. Leicester are seven points clear with five games remaining When you look at the potential in the team we have, its normal that the fans and everyone expects us to win the title. It hasnt happened for so long and you can understand the frustration of the fans, and we all do get frustrated as well, because we do want this title. We want it badly as well.The word is frustration. With the talent we have we can do something special. We have six games to do something right, we need to at least win the last six games for us, and for the fans, because they deserve this.I understand the fans because I was just a fan when I was injured for two months, you feel it more.Last season I think we had 10 wins in a row to finish, and we can do it. We owe the fans because theyre always behind us, whether away or at home. If we finish the season strong who knows what can happen.Watch the extended interview with Coquelin on Soccer Saturday from midday on Sky Sports News HQ Also See: Wilshere completes 90 minutes Mersons predictions Ox and Cazorla return to training WATCH: Seven games, six days Lardarius Webb Jersey .com) - Theres nothing better for a team than to send out the staff ace in the most important game of the season.

BOSTON -- An associate of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested in a gun trafficking investigation related to the murder case against Hernandez. Oscar Hernandez Jr., 23, of Orlando, Fla. -- no relation to Aaron Hernandez -- was indicted Wednesday by a federal grand jury in Boston on charges of obstruction of justice, witness tampering and lying under oath. He appeared Thursday in federal court in Orlando, where a magistrate judge ordered him detained pending his transfer to Boston to face the charges. Aaron Hernandez and two other men are charged in the June 17 shooting death of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player who was found dead in an industrial park about a mile from Aaron Hernandezs North Attleborough home. The indictment against Oscar Hernandez says a grand jury in Massachusetts began investigating the transporting of guns from Florida to Massachusetts after the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives -- at the request of Massachusetts State Police -- traced three guns that had been recovered during the investigation of Lloyds killing. The ATF determined that all three guns were purchased in Florida in April 2013. Massachusetts officials have said they have been unable to find the gun used to kill Lloyd, which theyve identified as a .45-calibre Glock. None of the three guuns mentioned in Oscar Hernandezs indictment is a .dddddddddddd45-calibre Glock. The indictment says one of the three weapons -- a rifle -- was found in a grey Toyota Camry with Florida license plates that was parked in the garage of a residence in North Attleborough. The indictment doesnt identify the owner of the home. The indictment doesnt identify the owner of the home, but Massachusetts state police have said that five days after Lloyds killing they seized an FEG 7.62 mm rifle from a gym bag on the back seat of a Toyota sedan parked inside Aaron Hernandezs garage, according to court records in his case. Aaron Hernandezs lawyers have said a man identified as Oscar Hernandez was interviewed by law enforcement on June 27, 2013, 10 days after Lloyd died. The new indictment accuses Oscar Hernandez of lying to the grand jury when he denied purchasing the Camry and arranging for it to be sent from Florida to the home in North Attleborough. Assistant Federal Public Defender Todd Doss, who represented Oscar Hernandez in court Thursday, did not immediately return a call seeking comment. It was unclear when he would be brought to Boston to face the charges. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison on the witness tampering charge, up to 10 years on obstruction of justice and up to five years on the false testimony charges. ' ' '
