'Anything possible at Arsenal'- Pressley

6 January 2014

Sky Blues boss relishing the opportunity to pit himself and his side against the Premier League table toppers in FA Cup

Coventry City boss Steven Pressley says he is looking forward to pitting his wits against Arsene Wenger after the Sky Blues were handed an FA Cup fourth round trip away to Arsenal.

City earned their place in the next round after Saturday's 2-1 win away at Barnsley to set up the trip to North London.

Pressley said he was looking forward to the prospect of going up against a manager he greatly admires in Wenger and that City would be going to the Emirates with the belief that anything is possible.

"If you're going to draw a Premier League club in the cup then you want to get one of the big three or four teams and Arsenal are certainly one of those," Pressley said.

"I've always been a huge admirer of Arsene Wenger. He's never compromised on his style and the way he wants his teams to play and he's done a wonderful at that club bringing great stability and a brand of football that will is a good opportunity for myself and my team to test ourselves against."

The Sky Blues are actually the second highest scoring side in all four top English divisions, with their season tally of 52 goals so far only bettered by Premier League Manchester City.

Pressley added that the cup tie will be a great opportunity for his players to make a statement against the team that currently tops the Premier League.

"It's a great opportunity for our players to enhance their reputation and experience a Premier League standard of football.

"It's also going to be a fantastic occasion, not just for the players but the fans themselves. I subscribe to the notion that you always have to have the belief that you can win otherwise there's no point turning up and this game will be no different.

"Anything is possible and the kind of result that we will be working for when we go there can happen so we will keep believing that."
