FA Cup Win Could Get Arsenal On The Trophy Trail

FA Cup Win Could Get Arsenal On The Trophy Trail

After Arsenal beat Everton in the quarter final of the FA Cup & then Wigan subsequently went and gave Manchester City the shock of their lives, the Gunners became odds on favourites to be crowned champions of the world`s oldest club competition.

With "only" Wigan, Sheffield United and Hull City remaining in the tournament, Arsene Wenger`s team are fully expected to progress to the final and then bring home the bacon.

Arsenal vice-captain Mikel Arteta says the players are aware of the pressures that being favourites brings, and hopes his team can build some momentum going into the semi final in a month`s time and also that winning some silverware could jump start this current team on the road to bigger and better things.

"I think it would be a turning point for the club, If we won a trophy] it would give you a lift, give you belief that you can start to go in the right direction and hopefully we can do it."

"We have two competitions that we are still in. We want to fight for the league, for sure, and we have a great chance in the FA Cup as well. So we need to enjoy the moment and make the most of it because I think we can do something good."

"We know we are favourites [for the FA Cup]. We know that puts more pressure on us but we are happy with the win in the quarter-final. There is still a month to go [until the semi-final] and there are some tough games coming up."

"That`s why it is important to get some momentum for that moment and go there with belief and in good form."
