The Gunners made 11 changes to the side that drew with Manchester City and beat the League One side by six goals to one.

Wenger said: “You have to respect Coventry because they gave a lot and never gave up and did fight for every ball from the first to the last minute, when they got tired it became easy for us.

“It was a classical tie where you needed to be serious and we were serious.”
