Claude Puel says the Emirates FA Cup is another chance for his side to build momentum, as they look to record a fourth consecutive victory this weekend.

Arsenal stand in their way of a place in the fifth round of the competition, fresh off the back of their EFL Cup semi-final success over Liverpool.

And Puel is excited by the prospect of another lengthy cup run, despite a busy fixture schedule.

He said: “It’s a great game against a good team. Arsenal have had the possibility to recover all the week, which is not the same for us but it’s an exciting game for the squad.

“In front of our fans its important to find a good result.

“It’s just an opportunity to continue in this competition. It’s important for our fans and for the squad to do this.

“We know we have many games in a short amount of time which is difficult with a lot of injuries.

“But we have got to try to play a good game and to find a result.”
