Wenger: 'We had the quality to make a difference'

"It was tough, tough, tough and had all the ingredients of a typical cup tie. I think we played a bit below par, and Huddersfield are a good team - they were efficient, dangerous on set-pieces and crosses.

"We were also down to 10 men and so it became of course very difficult.

"In the end, though, we had the quality to make a difference, but we play so many games at the moment that of course sometimes we are not as sharp as you want to be."

"You can give it and not give it. It was a foul, but it didn't look to me that it was an obvious goalscoring opportunity. Is he the last man? That I am not sure as well. I feared the red card and unfortunately he gave what I feared."

"Cesc thought it was a red card. It is for the referee to make the decision. He made the right decision in my opinion. In the box, personally I am more lenient than outside."

"We looked a little bit tired today. Hopefully we can recover. When you win you recover more quickly. I have some players who did not play who will be fresh, but we have only 48 hours."
