Arsene Wenger says there’s no chance of his team being complacent in the cup final despite the fact they’re favourites.
The Gunners have beaten Hull twice already this season, but the manager says being tipped for the trophy makes no difference, and that his team have to perform on the day
“To be favourites doesn’t guarantee you anything,” he said. “It just means if you turn up on the day of the game with a good performance you have more chance of winning. So let’s focus on turning up with a great performance.
“I don’t believe we need any warning. We know that a final is a final, that Hull are a Premier League team, they can pass the ball, they can create chances. It’s just down to us to perform well on the day of the game.
“I honestly don’t feel there is any danger of complacency. We know the difficulty of the task.”
Wenger pointed to the difficulty of the games they’ve won on the way to Wembley to prove his team won’t be taking anything for granted.
“If you look at our run in the FA Cup, we’ve had a hard run.
“We played against Tottenham, against Liverpool, against Everton, Wigan in the semi-final. Coventry was maybe a little bit easier, but overall if you look at the run we had it was very tough. We have done all this and we want to finish it now.”
