Monreal makes ambitious statement after Arsenal's FA Cup win

Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal has suggested the Gunners are in all competitions to win after knocking Manchester United out of the FA Cup.

Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal has told the club’s official website that the Gunners want to win everything after knocking Manchester United out of the FA Cup.

Monreal got on the score sheet as Arsenal produced a solid away win at Old Trafford last night, which gives the side momentum looking ahead to this weekend’s Premier League game against West Ham.

“I didn’t have time to think because David de Gea came out very quickly. I controlled it well and I saw the space and tried to put the ball there. I’m very happy because I finished the goal,” said the Spaniard.

“We are playing in three different competitions and we want to win all of them. We have to keep going.”

It will be a massive ask for the Gunners to pull through and actually win all three competitions, especially the Premier League, where they’d need some sort of disaster for Chelsea at the top of the table to even have a chance.

They’re also up against it in their Champions League clash against Monaco, chasing a 3-1 deficit after a disappointing first leg at the Emirates.

The most realistic chance of silverware the club has is the FA Cup, though the semi-finals are setup to give the Gunners a potential final against Liverpool, which won’t be easy.

Retaining the FA Cup and securing a top four finish will be enough for the majority of fans, with the scale of the club’s task in their other competitions just a little too big.
