Arsenal boss Wenger suffers first FA Cup defeat to lower league opposition

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger's record suffered a body blow with their FA Cup defeat to Blackburn Rovers.

The Sun says defeat to Blackburn was the first time Wenger has ever lost to lower-league opposition in the FA Cup.

It followed hot on the heels of the Gunners' shock exit from the Capital One Cup at the hands of League Two Bradford back in December.

Before this season, Wenger, who has been in charge at the Emirates club since 1996, had only ever lost to lower-league opposition once.

And that was against Burnley in the 2008-9 Carling Cup.
