When asked if the situation was weird for him, the forward replied: “Yes - as you said it's a different arrangement, a different club. I played five-and-a-half years for Arsenal with the same coach.
“That's part of life, part of the job. Sometimes you have to adapt yourself for this kind of event. We are professional, we are football players. We need always to step up, no matter what happens. We need to stick together.
“We expect a tough game at Wembley, but it's a cup game, it's a final, so we need to get through, start on the front foot.
“We know their quality and we need momentum now. A win would be amazing for us, for the confidence. After that we have another big game against Tottenham on Wednesday. Game by game we need to come back and get some confidence back."
