Arsène Wenger says his players will have exactly the same commitment for Sunday's trip to Leyton Orient as they did during Wednesday's win over Barcelona.

The Arsenal manager feels the FA Cup tie represents an opportunity for his side to show just how serious they are about winning silverware in a game they are expected to win comfortably.

So Barcelona or Brisbane Road, Wenger expects a similar level of performance.

"We can gain more respect from everybody if we turn up on Sunday with absolutely full commitment then people will say this team is ready to have a real go and not choose the competition or the games," he said.

"When you are a top-level competitive man or team you go absolutely 100 per cent committed into every game.

"The media give more importance to some games than others but for us to win trophies we have to take a distance with that and be able to switch from one competition to another with exactly the same commitment."
