“Tonight was a big step forward. It was a massive improvement from the Tottenham game.
It’s easy to get excited and talk about the future but we need to just keep working and think about the next game. We had to dig deep. The attitude and work-rate was important. Towards the end it was comfortable but not during the 90 minutes.”
“Today we looked more like a proper team. We looked more structured. We’d worked hard at defending and counter-attacking. Counter-attacking is classic Manchester United – Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, Ji-sung Park – we’ve scored so many at Arsenal over the years.”
“It’s fantastic to go through in the cup. It’s one of the hardest games you can get. I’ve had a headache since I came because the squad is full of good players. It’s up to us to pick the right tactics and players. We need to rest a few as there’s big games coming up. But we have fresh legs.”
