Arsenal look to Barcelona after bouncing back from Cup defeat

3rd March 2011 - Berko Tau

Arsenal football manager Arsene Wenger says that his side has put their Carling Cup blues behind them.

The Gunners lost the Wembley showpiece 2-1 after a horrendous defensive mix-up between Wojciech Szczesny and Laurent Koscielny gifted Birmingham City striker Obafemi Martins an open goal late in the game.

However, after seeing off League One side Leyton Orient with a comfortable 5-0 victory at the Emirates, football manager Wenger said his side had put their disappointment behind them.

He said: "It was important, of course, that we had a response after what happened over the weekend.

"We did it in a professional way; we always focused and didn't give them any chances. Overall it was a normal victory."

Soccer games continue to come thick and fast for Arsenal, with a match against Sunderland in the Premier League on Saturday (March 5th) being followed by a trip to Barcelona three days later.
