Five things we learned from Arsenal 5-0 Lincoln City

"Let's not talk about me". We can not underestimate any side in any league in this country, and that's what I've learned.

'I've always said that I feel good at Arsenal: the club, the fans, the city - it's all here.

"They had a big crowd behind them as well and they had a chance". After that we had to respond and we needed players who were solid mentally.

Wenger is now weighing up his options after mass fan protests in the aftermath of their recent humiliation in the Champions League.

For the second time in five days, Arsenal fans staged a pre-match protest march calling for Wenger to resign and the Frenchman could ill afford what would have been the FA Cup's greatest upset.

Arsenal's league drought dates back to 2004, with two FA Cup trophies the only silverware Wenger has delivered since that unbeaten Premier League campaign.

"You could see in the first half that they had a very direct game, but they had clarity about what they wanted to do and they did that very well".

Larry Sanders agrees to deal with Cavaliers
Sanders hasn't played since and has seemingly only generated casual interest from teams as his name floated in comeback rumors. Let's not forget that he was one of the best shot blockers in the league during the 2012-2013 season (2.8 blocks per game).

Thus, letting the new director of football deal with negotiations would help the next manager focus on the task at hand: getting this team filled with talent to compete once against England's, and Europe's, best.

For young Lincoln City manager Danny Cowley, the lessons learned at Arsenal will be invaluable.

Wenger has already won the FA Cup a record-equalling six times and therefore knew the importance of the game even against lowly opposition, defending his decision to field a strong starting line-up.

Arsenal's next game is a home clash against West Brom in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon as Wenger's side look to get their bid for a top-four finish back on track. "That was one hell of a long 45 minutes for us". The first goal was important but it was down to how we approached the game.

The Daily Mail's Ian Ladyman said that game, including a miss from striker Olivier Giroud at 1-0, summed Arsenal up perfectly, and he agrees that the squad needs an overhaul.

Tottenham face Millwall on Sunday afternoon, but Wenger says it matters not who progresses and who his side draw in the next round.
