Arsene Wenger says his players are ‘united and determined’ after they reached their third FA Cup final in four years, beating Man City 2-1 at Wembley today.
The Gunners came from behind thanks to goals from Nacho Monreal and Alexis Sanchez, and the Arsenal manager was delighted to see a reaction after what has been a difficult period.
Although there was a 2-1 win over Boro on Monday, recent form has been sketchy, but Wenger was impressed with what he got from his charges today.
“I felt that we had a strong response today,” he said. |”We had a little bit of a cautious start, hesitant sometimes but we didn’t give chances away and we grew into the game.
“Slowly, we became better and better and in the second half I felt we were very strong, in extra-time very strong, we always looked solid and dangerous.
“We played more in the second half and I felt as well it was a big test for us today – it was a mental test because many people questioned ‘Can we turn up in an occasion like that?’
“That’s why I am very proud for the players, because they showed they are united and determined.”
Let’s hope that this is something of a corner turned, because there’s no let-up – we face Leicester in the Premier League on Wednesday.
