Arsene Wenger insists his Arsenal team are over their Carling Cup defeat to Birmingham City and are ready to fight for trophies for the remainder of the season.
The Gunners, albeit with a much-changed line-up from their Wembley defeat, cruised past Leyton Orient in Wednesday’s FA Cup 5th round replay, and Wenger insists his team are focused on the future.
"You could see on Wednesday night this team is mentally very strong and hungry for success and we look forward and we want to become stronger and stronger. How the team responded to the disappointment on Sunday is remarkable,” he said.
"This team, is for me, top quality and is hungry for success, and we promised ourselves to give absolutely everything until the end of the season and that's what we want to do and that's what we will do.
"We had three days later a game and we won it 5-0, and it looked to me that we played the Carling Cup final six months ago, because we are just focused on tomorrow's game."
How Wenger’s side reacts to their cup final disappointment will shape their season.
They face Sunderland at The Emirates on Saturday before traveling to the Nou Camp to face Barcelona in the Champions League and Old Trafford for their FA Cup quarter-final with Manchester United.
