Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hailed the character of his side after they battled to a 3-2 win at Brighton to secure a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Wenger had made several changes from the side which thumped West Ham 5-1 in the Barclays Premier League on Wednesday night, and started with England duo Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott on the bench.

"Brighton made it very difficult for us and were sharper than us in the first half. They had a great spirit," Wenger said. "But in the end we had that little bit of extra quality to get us through. We did our job, but needed to fight until the end."
