Welbeck - We had to press them high

Danny Welbeck spoke to Arsenal Player after the FA Cup win over Middlesbrough. Read a transcript of the interview here:

on the win...
It was a good team performance and I think we had to set up very well. We had to be aware of their counter-attack play and I think we dealt with that pretty well. Obviously to get the two goals and go through to the next round is good.

on a quick start...
We knew we had to press them high up the pitch and make sure we did well on their mistakes. Once they let us through a couple of times, we got the two goals and it was pretty much [about] keeping a lot of concentration towards the end of the game. It was a good team performance in the end.

on Olivier Giroud...
Oli got the two goals and is very pleased with that. We could have maybe got a couple more goals had a few passes been played through a bit earlier but we’re pleased to be through to the next round.

on reaching Wembley with one more win...
We’ve just got to look forward to the next game really and then hopefully we can get through. We’re not looking too far ahead.
