Rosler: Pressure is on Arsenal

Wigan manager Uwe Rosler believes that the pressure is strongly on Arsenal, as favourites, to knock his side out of the FA Cup on Saturday, according to Sky Sports.

The Championship club are the current holders of the trophy but Rosler believes the Gunners will be under pressure to end their nine year trophy drought with the competition.


Wigan have so far exceeded all expectation in the competition, eliminating three Premier League clubs including Crystal Palace, Cardiff and Manchester City on their way to the semi-final.


"We're going to Wembley and we're meeting a top team in the Premier League," Rosler admitted.


"We are the massive underdog but we have presented ourselves so far in a very, very good way. We've made our supporters proud and we're going to Wembley; we can't lose, we only can win.


"Everybody highlighted the fact Arsenal now really have to go for the FA Cup and win the FA Cup. Their own players said that this week and obviously that puts a little bit of extra pressure on Arsenal."


Rosler’s cup run is arguably more impressive than his predecessor Roberto Martinez’s trophy win with the side, as Wigan only met one Premier League club on route to the final that year.


Despite only being appointed in December, the 45-year-old has been praised for his work at the helm of the Latics, after leading them to the play-offs and a FA Cup semi-final amidst a crowded fixture list.


"There were always positive vibes and positive memories about the cup," Rosler added of this campaign's exploits.


"We had to put a lot in that first round against MK Dons, it went to extra time and we overcame that hurdle. Then we just enjoyed the occasion to meet the Premier League sides.


"My players are used to playing against Premier League sides and they are missing that this season. For them it was always like 'come on, I can still do it' and here we are in the semis."
