Bannan, Pudil and more: Sheffield Wednesday stars message fans on Twitter after Arsenal win

Sheffield Wednesday's players were thrilled to delight their supporters with a win over Arsenal.

Just as Arsenal could not have imagined last night's Capital One Cup clash could have been as bad as it turned out to be, Sheffield Wednesday could barely have dreamed it better.

The Owls dispatched a team full of Arsenal internationals including Olivier Giroud and Per Mertesacker, recording a 3-0 victory at Hillsborough.

Goals from Ross Wallace, Lucas Joao and Sam Hutchinson earned a comfortable win against a side ranked second in the Premier League table, and a feared late fightback never materialised; the Gunners were listless and well beaten.

A number of Wednesday players took to Twitter after the game to express their delight at the victory, and share the victory with the support, who backed them so raucously before, during, and after the game.

Wednesday's win in the last round against Newcastle United was outstanding, perhaps just as much so given it was away from home, but for the players to be able to bring joy to a big crowd of home support was even more special.

As many as 35,000 supporters packed out the stadium, with the win a hark back to more successful days of years past, which just perhaps - the club are on track to bring back more regularly once again.
