Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that his side secured a well-deserved victory over Manchester United in their FA Cup quarter final tie.

The Frenchman was quoted telling reporters after the game: “Tonight I thought we played well and deserved to win the game.”



Wenger said that the side had to play the game without any worries and at a high pace, which they succeeded in doing. He singled out the contribution of goalscorer Danny Welbeck, saying that he worked hard in the match and deserved to get a goal.

The Frenchman also made it clear that the side are looking to compete in every competition possible, thus hinting that they wouldn’t take the FA Cup lightly anymore. He said that the win over the Red Devils will raise his side’s morale for their upcoming matches in the Premier League and against Monaco in the Champions League.

Meanwhile, speaking about the next match in the competition, in which they will face-off against either Bradford City or Reading, Wenger said that they had a ‘tricky’ semi-final match at Wembley last season, and that they are expecting such a situation again this year.
