Walcott isn’t scared

“There is a lot of confidence in the dressing room, everyone is buzzing,” said Walcott. “We feel every team are scared of us as soon as we step on the pitch. It’s great to play when things are going like that. We are playing brilliant football and scoring goals from all sorts of positions. We are defending well and even though we have players out injured, others are coming in and doing just as good a job. It will be difficult against United but we play them regularly in the Premier League and do very well against them.”

Fabregas isn’t scared

“I respect United for what they have achieved in the last few years. For me, they are still the best,” said Fabregas. “But I am not scared of them. At Arsenal, we are not scared of anyone and the way we play shows that. We might not have the same experience as United or Chelsea but I am not concerned about that. I don’t mind at all. We have the confidence, the illusion and the excitement to play. We always try to go forward and have a direct, aggressive way of playing on the counter-attack.”
