Arsenal boss Wenger impressed by Coventry spirit

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger praised Coventry City after victory in the Capital One Cup.

Wenger praised the spirited fight of Coventry and felt his players' superior fitness proved to be telling as the game wore on.

He said: "You have to respect Coventry because they gave a lot and never gave up and did fight for every ball from the first to the last minute, when they got tired it became easy for us.

"It was a classical tie where you needed to be serious and we were serious."
