Mesut Ozil urges Arsenal to focus on the FA Cup [divider]
Arsenal star Mesut Özil has urged Arsenal to focus on their defence of the FA Cup following the Champions League Last 16 exit.
“We’ve got lots of important games coming up, especially in the FA Cup, where we’re in the semi-finals again,” Özil told the official Arsenal website.
Arsenal will face Reading in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, April 18.
As a result, the Premier League fixture against Sunderland will now be played on May 20 instead of April 18.
The Gunners won the FA Cup last season and Mesut Özil played an important role in Arsenal winning their first piece of silverware in nine years.
Arsenal could play Blackburn Rovers, Liverpool or Aston Villa in the final if they knock Reading out of the cup.
The North London based side also have an outside chance of winning the Premier League or at least finishing in the top two.
Arsenal are currently just one point behind second placed Manchester City in the league.
