Mikel Arteta emphasizes importance of winning FA Cup ahead of Leeds clash

Ahead of their FA Cup Third Round clash against Leeds United, Mikel Arteta has stressed the importance of winning the trophy.

Arsenal have won the competition a record 13 times, two of them in 2014 and 2015 with Arteta as part of Wenger’s side, helping him to understand why it is important.

Arteta will be seeking his second win as Arsenal manager and his side will be brimming with confidence after the 2-0 win over Manchester United.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of the Leeds clash, Arteta emphasized on the importance of the FA Cup, "Winning brings togetherness and when you have beautiful experiences together and you win trophies then those experiences stay within that group.

"You like the people that you work with more, you believe more in them, you share some fantastic moments and that habit of winning, winning, winning… after you win, you don’t want to stop winning.

"You become addicts to that and that’s what we have to try to implement at this football club. When I arrived here, obviously we were trying to fight for the Premier League at the time but we did not really quite have the level to compete and sustain it every year to quite do that.

"So the cups become very important and obviously this club has a massive history with that. But then we’d had eight years without winning anything."
