Arsene Wenger gave some rest to his best players against Hull City this Saturday afternoon in the 5th round of the FA Cup. However, Arsenal ended up drawin against a Championship opponent and will have to play the replay before the Champions League second leg against Barcelona.
Alexis Sánchez and Giroud played the last 25 minuts. The only usual starters were Mertesacker and Koscielny, the centre-backs. Arsenal had more chances than Hull but just couldn't score.
Wenger said about Tuesday: "We are not favourites against Barcelona. We will need to take our chances and create more from our possessions".
Wenger left the press conference saying he was going to watch Barcelona's game against Las Palmas.
