We Would Have Gone Out Of The FA Cup - Arsene Wenger Admits
Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger was relieved after they were able to scale through with a 2-0 win over a non-league side, Sutton united on monday nite.


Wenger admitted that it was a hard fought win and that they would have faced a FA cup humiliation had it been the players shown less efforts and determination.

The Gunners were given a real run for their money by a team which is ranked 105 places below them in the English league system.

Thanks to goals from Luas Perez and Theo Walcott which earned Arsenal a victory, even as Sutton fought to the very end of the match.

When asked if it has been a case of  'job done', the French coach replied, "Yes, against a side that was astonishing".

"We had to keep our focus. I must give credit to the players who were professional and kept their focus.

If we had come here in a relaxed mood, we would have gone out because they produced quality."

Arsenal will now host another non-league side, Lincoln city in the quarterfinals.
