Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has shrugged off claims of crisis after their FA Cup exit.

The Frenchman was understandably on the defensive at the end of a miserable week, and he also confirmed he will be without Francis Coquelin, Sebastien Squillaci and Aaron Ramsey for the Tottenham clash after they joined an already lengthy injury list yesterday.

Addressing whether Arsenal are at crisis point, Wenger said: "It depends what you call a crisis. Every time we lose a game we have a crisis. Our job is about winning and playing well.

"We will get criticism but I feel that is a bit hard on the team.

"At the moment I get many lessons from many people who have managed zero clubs and zero games and zero European games.

"We have played 15 years in the top four, which is a mark of our consistency."
