Coventry manager Mark Robins said:

“I think we created our own problems. Our shape wasn’t right and the recovery wasn’t there. They run off the back of us and score a goal that was probably avoidable on three or four of the occasions before it got to the final shot.”

“Arsenal move the ball well, different type of football than we’re used to coming up against week in and week out, – sharp – but I think we got to grips with it, got on top. Most of the first half was ours after that but lacked that cutting edge, that incisive edge, and desire to get on the end of something.”
