Arsène Wenger says Arsenal paid for a lack of focus in their FA Cup fifth-round 0-0 draw with Hull City.

Despite having a 24 attempts on goal, the Gunners could not break the deadlock against their Championship opponents.

I’m frustrated not to have won the game but we could have, and we hope to qualify at Hull

Arsène Wenger

Arsenal will now travel to the KC Stadium for a replay, and Wenger admitted it had been a frustrating afternoon.

“We were, on some occasions, too individualistic, lacked a bit of patience and coolness in front of goal,” he told Arsenal Player. "It shows you that in every single game all 18 members of the squad have to be focused otherwise you get nowhere.

“It was frustrating because we had a lot of the ball, many shots and we couldn’t finish the game off because they defended well and we lacked a bit of quality in the final pass.

“I feel our focus was not exactly of the same quality like last week [against Leicester] and that is what we paid for.

"I’m frustrated not to have won the game but we could have, and we hope to qualify at Hull. Between a replay and going out, I’m happy to have a replay.”
