Arsenal morning round-up: Pair confident of FA Cup chances, Neville backtracks over Rosicky

Emirates Stadium 3

A round up of news this morning related to Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger has been quoted by the Daily Mail urging caution from his side in the FA Cup.

Wenger has admitted that the Gunners will now be considered one of the favourites to retain the trophy after several big teams went out over the weekend.

However, the boss has pointed to those results in suggesting that anything can happen.

Arsenal midfielder Theo Walcott has told the Daily Express that his team can beat any other side in the FA Cup.

Walcott has described the FA Cup as Arsenal’s trophy, as they hold the position as current holders.

Walcott claims Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Swansea and Southampton all going out of the competition presents his side with an opportunity.

BBC pundit Phil Neville has told the Daily Telegraph he was joking over comments he made about Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky.

Neville claimed that if he was still playing, he would have looked to ‘two-foot’ the midfielder to take him out of the game.

Neville was criticised on Twitter and responded by saying that his comments were nothing more than tongue-in-cheek.
