Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta said that all the players at the club are ready to prove Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho wrong after the Portuguese manager labelled Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger a “specialist in failure” after having failed to win a trophy in nine years by winning the FA Cup tomorrow afternoon against Hull City at Wembley.

While being interviewed by the Daily Star Arteta said: “For some people success is only to win a trophy and nothing else matters.

“But analyse everything Arsene Wenger has done for this club, and if you think he is a failure, then I have a different opinion.

“I see what he does every day to look after this club.

“I don’t like it when someone criticises my team-mates, the staff, the manager, the club.

“When they are right maybe you can accept it. Everybody makes mistakes. But when he says something in a certain way I don’t like it.

“Everybody is big and mature enough to question himself about if they are good enough and if they are doing everything they can.

“I don’t think you need to decide how good someone is because they have won a trophy,” the Spaniard added.

“Is this a chance we have to take? Absolutely. We don’t need to convince anyone that we can do it. But we are very determined to win it.

“It’s a great opportunity for us to win a trophy. We have fought hard to get to this position and we don’t want to waste it.”

Arsenal blew their last chance of silverware in 2011 losing to underdogs Birmingham City in the League Cup final.

But Arteta said: “I can’t sense any fear. What I sense is a big determination.

“The players can’t wait for Saturday to come and to be on that pitch.”
