Arsenal winger Theo Walcott contradicted acting captain Robin van Persie over complaints of time-wasting from FA Cup opponents Hull City after Tuesday's victory.

“I thought it was a tough game and all the players gave a 100 per cent,” Walcott told arsenal.com. “I was just getting on with the game but there was quite a bit of time-wasting. When you play against the big teams you try and slow the game down. But there was no animosity about that.”
