Arsenal cruised into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup at the second time of asking on Tuesday night as they beat Championship outfit Hull City by four goals to nil.

After five games without a win in all competitions, goals from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud helped Arsene Wenger's side continue their impeccable FA Cup record. 

The Gunners, of course, have won the competition in the last two seasons and are now on course to retain the trophy once again this term.

Arsenal may well have enjoyed a fine evening, but that didn't stop fans expressing their frustrations towards their manager. 

Arsene Wenger, who has been at the helm since 1996, has been heavily criticised by certain supporters recently. 

Wenger banner 

In fact, during the club's FA Cup victory, fans unveiled a banner stating that it was time for Wenger to leave the club. 

However, one man in particular took great offence to the protests. Club legend Ian Wright was far from pleased with the actions of the Arsenal faithful. 

In fact, after receiving a tweet from one Arsenal supporter suggesting that he should respect the fans, Wright responded by stating: "I'll disrespect you all day long unfurling your muggy banner after a 4-0 win and plenty enough games left in the league."

Wright's twitter altercation didn't stop there, however, as another Arsenal fan opted to hit out at the club's former striker. 

On this occasion, the Gunners supporter told Wright to f*** off and insisted that the club's ex-player doesn't pay the money that the fans have to.

Wright responded by stating: "I've paid with my fused ankle! 6 injections in a week to play 94 FA cup! Will limp forever! And I'd do it again."

Clearly, then, Wright remains on his former manager's side as the Gunners go in search of success this season. 

Wenger reacts 

Following the game, Wenger insisted that he didn't care about the protests during the fixture. 

The Gunners chief stated: "There's nothing disappointing for me. I do my job. Look at the history of the club, since the club exists, and you will see that I have nothing to be scared of.

"I don't care. I do not want to speak about that because it is always the same story. It is enough now. If you have any questions ask other people.

"Do you know someone who has won it [the FA Cup] more than me? We judge the season afterwards and I'm quite amazed so many people judge it so early.

"We have not given up anywhere and you will see that in the coming weeks. This club has been in a much worse position than it is today."

Arsenal fans: should Wenger leave your club at the end of the season? Have your say below!
