Arsene Wenger on the United game, responds to Scholes on Ozil


Arsenal must do everything possible to qualify for the next stage of the FA Cup according to manager Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners face Manchester United on Monday night in what could again be their only shot at silverware this season.

The Frenchman expects a "very interesting" game at Old Trafford and believes whoever wins can go on to win the trophy.

"We go to Manchester United to qualify and to give absolutely everything," Wenger told a press-conference on Friday.

"That's the target of the day - hard work, team effort and to give absolutely everything. Both teams will do that and I believe it could be a very interesting game.

"At the moment we are doing very well away from home. The size of the pitch is exactly the same everywhere, it's just down to how much we turn up and how much effort we put in to win the game.

"It is a [game with] special intensity because it is between two teams who have a chance to win this competition.

"Both teams will think, 'If we get over this hurdle, we have a good opportunity to win the competition'. It is more focused on the FA Cup purely than the Premier League."

Meanwhile, the Frenchman says Paul Scholes is wrong in believing midfielder Mesut Ozil is not trying hard enough at Arsenal.

"Paul Scholes would have loved to have played with a player like Mesut Ozil," Wenger said.

"He has the quality and he works a lot harder than his style of play shows.

"I knew he had a good physical potential, but I did not know how good he was physically. He has a huge physical potential.

"We are all in a job where in every single game we have to prove a point. I believe he has the quality, he puts a lot of effort in to help the team and he works much harder than his style shows.

"You can be cheated a little bit by his style of play, because he is fluent, easy, subtle and he does not look like he puts the effort in, but he does."
