'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Wenger full of praise for Leeds

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was full of praise for Leeds after holding his Arsenal side to a 1-1 draw in the FA Cup at The Emirates.

Speaking on BBC Sport, Wenger said, 'I must say at first that it was a very difficult game because it was a real cup game and Leeds were up for it, they played well.
'When we were 1-0 down I felt that Wojciech [Szczesny] kept us in the game with a good save from [Luciano] Becchio's header.
'They did very well, very aggressive but in a good way, not a negative way, they closed us down everywhere and we had problems to pass through their lines.
'They were dangerous as well and it was important for us not to give a goal away, but we did.
'Leeds were well organised, they were quickly on us and maybe our game was not quick enough to get out of their pressure.'

Leeds looked to be on their way to more FA Cup giant killing in the third round after winning at Manchester United at the same stage last season.

Robert Snodgrass had given Leeds the lead from the penalty spot ten minutes into the second half only for Cesc Fabregas to equalise in the final minute, also from the penalty spot.

It says a lot when Wneger says positive things about you, normally he doesn't see anyhting during a game unless it happens against Arsenal. Would have been very interested to hear his comments if they had not equalised. Especially with the penalty incident that wasn't given.

Fair play to him, I like Wenger and like it when he gets one over on Taggert.. Why do we not play like that evry week, I don't understand it.

I dont think I have ever heard Wanger talk about any team like he has about Leeds and the players Esp' from a lower league...But before the game I'd say he didn't relish playing Leeds after the MU & Spurs games...Good to hear him saying Leeds played very well, very aggressive but in a good way not a negative way...

Very very nice to see from someone who doesn't give credit to other clubs very often.

Wenger's a decent man and gracious in spite of having to face a replay. He was honest and these are kind comments. If I had to pay to see any Premier side (assuming we weren't there), I'd take Arsenal. He has them playing football the way it should be played.

He even suggested we played better than star studded City. Good on you mate.

Nice comments lets hope he'll be leavin E R miserable after we've beaten them
