Wenger: FA Cup not enough

Cape Town - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits winning a third successive FA Cup title may not be enough to please some of the club's supporters this season.

The Gunners lock horns with Watford in the quarter-finals on Sunday, having dispatched Hull City 4-0 in a fifth-round replay in midweek - the same team they beat in the final two years ago.

And, many feel the FA Cup presents Arsenal's best chance at winning silverware this term, having dropped eight points off the pace in the Premier League, while they head into the second-leg of their Champions League round of 16 clash against Barcelona on Wednesday trailing 2-0.

Speaking ahead of this weekend's Emirates Stadium encounter, Wenger said: "Look, it's never enough. As long as you don't win everything, it's never enough. When we didn't win anything, they said 'you didn't even win the FA Cup'.

"People always want more, which is normal and it's what we want as well. If you look at the history of Arsenal, we are a club who's won it more than anybody else.

"We've won it 12 times. And I with my team have won it six. That means it's not as easy as it looks."
