Fortunately for Wenger, his men did it in a stellar fashion to deny oppositional goals.

Wenger's side faced Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the second match in England to have access to the VAR technology.

Good news is i should be back in a couple of days, ' wrote the 26-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Dean Court.

The biggest shock was the exit of Arsenal, the most successful team in the history of the competition- and the winners in three of the last four seasons- at the hands of Championship side Nottingham Forest.

"His reputation preceded him and psychologically, for our players, to have Jack in the squad was good for them".

However, his return to form and fitness over recent weeks prompted comparisons to the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

"I remember when we were playing in that great Man United era, you hardly read about their players doing stuff like that". Although this, of course, would have presupposed an ability to learn things from watching Arsenal play football.

He sat alongside Jens Lehmann, who communicated instructions Arsenal first team coach Neil Banfield on the bench.

Wenger will serve the final match of his three-match touchline ban on Sunday.

"We are not so clinical despite creating chances". This could be positive, [but] for sure you have to improve and to understand that when you start to use VAR you need to add more extra time.

Wenger has been linked with Bordeaux's Brazilian forward Malcom and Thomas Lemar of Monaco as replacements for Sanchez. There is still an opportunity for him [Ozil] to stay.

'From what I've heard just now [I don't know] If he will be available for Sunday but it's definitely the ankle, yes'. "We saw he had somebody in his ear but I got the ball clearly so I didn't mind". Alexis wants to win. I think we have to improve with all the players, not only the strikers or midfielders.

Iwobi has scored one goal in seventeen appearances this season and patience amongst the Arsenal fan base is beginning to wear thin.

Asked about Wilshere's contribution after signing for Bournemouth, Howe added: "I noticed straightaway in training, when he joined, the standard went higher. I thought maybe there were not sure that it was not a penalty and were looking at it again and again".

The ever-widening gap between the haves and the have-nots, and the general improvement in pitches have made genuine cup shocks much rarer.

Antonio Rudiger showed his versatility throughout the game, not giving up on lost causes.
