Djourou admits Liverpool players relieved to survive Leeds draw

Arsenal players know they were fortunate to keep their FA Cup hopes alive after drawing with Leeds United on Saturday.

Gunners defender Johan Djourou admitted the Arsenal players were relieved their FA Cup dream had not been ended.

"It is good to still be in the cup because we were 1-0 down and under pressure, but we showed good character to still be in the cup and now we go there to try and win it," the Swiss international said.

"We have to deal with all the extra game, the manager says he wants to win all the competitions so we have to go there and win."

Djourou added: "Theo is a great player, and he gets you in the game, Cesc as well, when he came on.

"We showed we have the players that can make a difference."
