Walcott: Arsenal all fired up for FA Cup success

Theo Walcott says the Arsenal squad are full of confidence ahead of the FA Cup fifth-round clash with Blackburn on Saturday. The Gunners on their last league outing came back from Sunderland with a hard fought ten-man 1-0 win.

"It was an important win," the forward told the official Arsenal website. "The three points have us on a high and we've got a nice week now without any midweek game.

"A lot of players are back from international duty and need a bit of a break. Some may be rested for the FA Cup game, but that's just as important as we want to go far in that competition.

"If we lost [at Sunderland], we would have been dwelling on it for so long, so I'm glad we didn't."
