Arsene Wenger admitted Arsenal swung from "disaster to pride" during his side's heart-stopping 7-5 Capital One Cup victory at Reading.

Theo Walcott and Marouane Chamakh struck in the dying moments of extra time after Pavel Pogrebnyak appeared to have taken a night of high drama at Madejski Stadium into penalties. Arsenal had fought back to reach the quarter-finals for a 10th successive year after conceding a 4-0 lead in the first half and Wenger admitted it was an astonishing evening.

"We went from disaster to pride because we came back in the second half with a decent performance," he said. "At one point all we had was hope because it didn't look like we'd go through. But we got the disastrous first half out of our system."
