Arsenal beat Liverpool out of the FA Cup

Share |


Arsene Wenger had only great words for Thierry Henry after his team got a 3-1 FA Cup victory over Liverpool. Indeed, Arsenal knocked holders Liverpool out of the competition this morning with two sweetly-struck goals by Tomas Rosicky and a late Thierry Henry breakaway.

We must consider that it was only Henry's second game back after a seven-match rest, and his goal was a classic.

It's fair to say that Liverpool were two down at the break to a Tomas Rosicky double, but pulled one back through Dirk Kuyt before Thierry Henry embarked on a fine solo run to grab the third and finish off the holders in front of their own fans.

Wenger expressed: "Thierry's goal was great, it was a fine run and he is getting his strength back, that's really important at this level when you have been out for a time.

"Actually, he showed that when he went past two Liverpool defenders and had the legs to do that at a critical time in the game.

"However, we all know he can do that. But the fact that he has worked very hard and can do that in the last 10 minutes says a lot about the effort he has put in.

"I'm convinced that the break has benefited him. At this level you need to have the strength to be able to fight for every ball in such a game, and to do that you need to be fresh mentally.

"When you have been in the final of the Champions League and then the World Cup, it takes it out of you. you know, players are not machines and he needed to be refreshed" the coach noticed.
