Arsenal awake from slumber to end Lincoln run

Chelsea v Man United Antonio Conte faces Jose Mourinho in the FA Cup

Chelsea v Man United Antonio Conte faces Jose Mourinho in the FA Cup

It is one of his greatest qualities, enabling him to stay true to his principles even when all appears to be falling apart around him, but it may have become his greatest weakness.

Arsenal secured an easy 5-0 win against Lincoln City in the FA Cup Quarter-final, as the Gunners are off to Wembley to play in the Semi-final.

"We were a bit nervous because your confidence drops when you don't have the results. I am just focused on the next game". I think we had an outstanding game against Bayern Munich. "We've played against some world-class players so we must come away from this as better players and better people".

The response to that claim was sceptical but Wenger was persistent. They put in an outstanding performance. "It was hard, you could see in the first half they had a very direct game but they had clarity about what they wanted to do and they did that very well".

"I didn't want to gamble today because I knew it was very important to win the game", Wenger said.

"The players didn't let me down. Because we have been hit very hard after the game and that is always risky because the confidence can go very quickly".

City boss Guardiola, chasing his first trophy in England, was rewarded for naming all his stars despite having to defend a 5-3 lead at Monaco in a decisive Champions League last 16 second leg on Wednesday.

Staples to close around 70 stores in 2017
Total company comparable sales for the fourth quarter of 2016 declined one percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2015. Valtura Capital Partners LLC acquired a new position in Staples during the second quarter worth about $3,360,000.

"The second half it felt like he'd brought 15 players, it felt like the clock had stopped". We were there from the first minute.

All things considered, it was an impressive win for a team that really needed to show some good form again, the competition not withstanding. That was the opportunity Nathan Arnold created for himself cutting in of the right flank only to be denied by a fine save from Petr Cech.

"Lincoln knocked out Burnley, Ipswich and Brighton, so we have to respect them", he said.

Getting out was part of Lincoln's problem as their two centre-forwards, Matt Rhead and Jack Muldoon, dropped too deep as they sought to regain possession.

The Imps were the first non-league side to reach the quarter-finals in more than a century - and nearly 10,000 fans made the journey to the capital hoping for one more giantkilling that would take them to Wembley for the first time in their history. "We have to be inspired and learn from this journey", he said.

Arsene Wenger continued to nurse the wounds of Tuesday's 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich after his side got back to winning ways against Lincoln, insisting his Arsenal players had been "unjustifiably criticised". "It was a football education".
