Wenger "shocked" by cost of Hull cup win

Mertesacker, Gabriel and Ramsey all depart early injured

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was "shocked" after seeing his side pick up three injuries in their 4-0 win over Hull City at the KC Stadium.

The Gunners progressed to the FA Cup quarter-finals after a brace each from Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott was enough to comfortably see off Steve Bruce's side.

While the win was welcomed as the north Londoners seek to win their third consecutive FA Cup triumph, injury withdrawals by Per Mertesacker, Gabriel and Aaron Ramsey left their manager counting the cost of the victory.

"It was a shock as we lost our two centre-backs in the game and then we lost Aaron Ramsey," Wenger told BT Sport.

"Mertesacker is not serious, just a little concussion, and I think Gabriel looks all right but for Ramsey I am little bit more concerned.

"It's a thigh injury, but apart from that we have played well."

Walcott meanwhile, stressed the determination his team-mates have for retaining the trophy again.

"Thankfully it all went well for us," he said. "The only disappointing thing is the injuries. It was all about getting through and that is what we have done. We want to keep hold of the FA Cup."
