Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was full of praise for Leeds after holding his Arsenal side to a 1-1 draw in the FA Cup at The Emirates.
Speaking on BBC Sport, Wenger said, ‘I must say at first that it was a very difficult game because it was a real cup game and Leeds were up for it, they played well.
‘When we were 1-0 down I felt that Wojciech [Szczesny] kept us in the game with a good save from [Luciano] Becchio’s header.
‘They did very well, very aggressive but in a good way, not a negative way, they closed us down everywhere and we had problems to pass through their lines.
‘They were dangerous as well and it was important for us not to give a goal away, but we did.
‘Leeds were well organised, they were quickly on us and maybe our game was not quick enough to get out of their pressure.’
Leeds looked to be on their way to more FA Cup giant killing in the third round after winning at Manchester United at the same stage last season.
Robert Snodgrass had given Leeds the lead from the penalty spot ten minutes into the second half only for Cesc Fabregas to equalise in the final minute, also from the penalty spot.
