You know, I feel the club is in a very strong shape and that we have a very strong overall situation and a very strong team.

But Cech has warned his teammates winning the FA Cup for a third time in four years would still not excuse them failing to qualify for next season's Champions League.

"Obviously you have some periods of the games where you prepare and do the right things then the game starts and it all goes completely wrong".

'You need to see what is happening behind the scenes, how well the team works and how we operate.

"Before this game we were in quite a dark period, we had lost confidence", Koscielny said.

'Sometimes you find a way out quickly, sometimes it takes a bit of time and there is damage. "If (we) talk about the referee the FA is going to come in for the punishment if we think like that, but I think I need to sleep and rest and forget this game", Toure added.

"The FA Cup is at the end of the season so there will be a lot of conditions before we play the final, " Cech said. We have games in hand, but the situation in the league is a bit complicated so we will only be able to judge at the end of the season.

Arsenal moved within four points of the Champions League places with a 1-0 victory over Leicester on Wednesday. I am certainly not going to suggest that the multi billionaire Roman Abramovic could have used his wealth and power to gain an unfair advantage because we know that this sort of thing would never be allowed by those in charge of the handsome game (cough, cough, sorry got a bit of Qatar in my throat). & #8220;Every FA Cup final is special in itself and, clearly, I'll play against a team where I 'd tremendous success and spent so many awesome years.
