Chorley vows to make like tough for Gunners
Defender Ben Chorley has warned Arsenal they could face a tougher task overcoming his Leyton Orient side than they did overturning the brilliance of Barcelona in midweek.
The Gunners came from behind to record a famous victory over the Primera Division champions 2-1 at the Emirates on Wednesday but must now prepare for an entirely different challenge against the npower League One side in the FA Cup fifth round.
Os skipper Chorley admits it might sound like a joke but he believes the full-blooded enthusiasm on show at Brisbane Road on Sunday could prove a more difficult challenge for the Gunners to overcome than the silky passing of Barca.
Chorley, whose side have lost just once in 20 matches, said: "It'll definitely be a different style to Barcelona - not that far off though, with the way the gaffer (Russell Slade) likes us to play.
"But we can get the ball down and mix it up a bit and it will be difficult for them. I should say, and you might laugh, that it might be a little bit harder for them than Barcelona.
"They might have to work a little bit harder, put their head in some places they wouldn't have to put their head in against Barcelona.
"We might not have a big chance but there's a slight chance.
"We'll go out there fully prepared to work a bit harder, get a bit more luck and maybe it might be our day."
Orient chairman Barry Hearn has said he expects the cup run and the Arsenal fixture to be worth up to #800,000 to his side - the difference between recording big losses and breaking even for the year.
He has already pledged to take his squad for a Las Vegas holiday if they win or draw against Arsene Wenger's side, but Slade has already set about spending some of the gate receipts on tinkering with the managers' post-match area.
"Arsene is pretty high on the list of managers I've come across," said Slade. "I'm sure we'll have a little tactical battle on the sidelines and one or two choice words.
"But we'll tidy the bunker for him - that's the little room we have for after the game.
"We've already put a nice little three-piece suite in there and we'll improve the quality of the wine for Mr Wenger."
Slade accepts his side are long-odds underdogs to get a result but insists a fixture like this can only be positive for his play-off chasing side.
"We've earned a right to have a crack at Arsenal," he said.
"If we played them 20 times we would probably lose 19 times but it's that one game on that one day we're looking for.
"It is a fantastic occasion. They have a 25-man squad and it's 25 internationals. My players know they will be up against an international centre forward or an international centre-half - it doesn't matter who they pick.
"They can't often say that and their families will be so proud."
Wenger believes the confidence his Arsenal side have taken from their Champions League first-leg triumph over Barcelona can inspire them to win four trophies this season.
He insists the Gunners will show exactly the same hunger and commitment against League One Leyton Orient in the FA Cup on Sunday that they demonstrated against the Spanish champions.
In stark contrast to recent seasons when Arsenal have prioritised the league and the Champions League, Wenger is set to field a virtual full-strength team against Orient.
He said: "We want to go for every single competition. How far will we go? I personally believe we can go in every competition to the end. But we can as well stop very quickly.
"It's just down to how much we believe and how much commitment we show. What I am convinced of is that we have the hunger and we have some talent and we are committed to going as far as we can."
Theo Walcott is likely to have recovered from a slight hamstring strain and Johan Djourou is responding well to treatment on a back injury. Wenger is likely to rest centre back Laurent Koscielny who felt "very tired" after the Barcelona match.
But a full-house at Orient will be treated to most of the stars who just a few days earlier defeated the team universally recognised as the best in the world.
Almost certainly that will include 19-year-old Jack Wilshere in midfield who gave a supremely mature performance against Xavi and Andres Iniesta on Wednesday.
Gunners handed reality check
Leyton Orient handed Arsenal a reality check as the npower League One side battled to a famous 1-1 draw with a late goal from substitute Jonathan Tehoue in the FA Cup fifth-round tie at Brisbane Road.
The Gunners made 10 changes from the side which had beaten Barcelona in midweek, but lacked a cutting edge in attack before they eventually made the breakthrough when Tomas Rosicky headed in on 53 minutes.
However, Orient produced a late rally and substitute Tehoue drilled home with a minute left to earn a money-spinning replay which keeps alive the dream of a quarter-final at Manchester United.
Arsene Wenger made the expected sweeping changes from the starting XI against Barcelona, with midfielder Alex Song the only survivor while 18-year-old centre-half Ignasi Miquel made his first-team debut and Manuel Almunia returned in goal.
However, captain Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and Jack Wilshere were all on the bench if needed.
It was a bright start by the home side, who had knocked out Championship promotion hopefuls Norwich and then Swansea in the last rounds, as skipper Stephen Dawson tested Almunia with a low drive from 20 yards.
Arsenal, though, soon settled and Marouane Chamakh glanced a header goalwards after good work down the left from Kieran Gibbs and Andrey Arshavin, who came off the bench to net the winner against Barcelona.
Orient, cheered on by a capacity 9,000 crowd, were not overawed and tried to take the game to their illustrious opponents.
On 14 minutes, Gibbs fed Chamakh at the edge of the penalty area, but the Moroccan - whose last of his 11 goals came in November - could only hit a tame sidefoot effort which Jamie Jones saved comfortably, At the other end, Charlie Daniels sent a 25-yard effort just over following a corner.
Arsenal, though, were soon back on the offensive, as Jones kept out Arshavin's low drive.
Andrew Whing pushed Rosicky over to concede a free-kick just outside the Orient box on the left flank. Arshavin's delivery, though, was headed clear.
Bendtner was the next Arsenal player off target, scuffing his half-volley wide from 18 yards.
Orient continued to close down Arsenal as the visitors struggled to open up the home side in the final third.
As the break approached, Chamakh stabbed wide as he stretched to get on the end of Gibbs' low centre across the six-yard box.
Arshavin weaved into the right side of the Orient penalty area, but could only find the side-netting.
Orient made a change for the second half as injured defender Jason Crowe was replaced by Thomas Carroll.
With an already congested fixture list, which includes next Sunday's Carling Cup final against Birmingham at Wembley, the last thing Wenger will have wanted was a replay, and Arsenal started with more urgency.
However, once more Orient defended in numbers, denying the Gunners any time on the ball.
Arsenal finally took the lead on 53 minutes.
Bendtner's persistence in the right side of the penalty area paid off when his cutback was glanced into the far corner by Rosicky - his first goal since January 2010.
Orient could have let their heads drop, but immediately went on the offensive as Alex Revell looped a header goalwards.
Arsenal, though, continued to look threatening on the break, with Arshavin's turn and run almost playing in Rosicky.
On 68 minutes, the Czech midfielder was denied a second goal by a brilliant reaction save at the near post from Jones, who also blocked the rebound.
Tehoue injected some pace into the Orient attack and the French forward broke quickly down the right, as Revell swept a first-time effort wide from the edge of the Arsenal box.
Orient knew time was running out so pressed forwards, but in doing so left themselves open on the counter-attack.
Tehoue broke down the right again and crossed to the centre where Revell fired in his shot - only for the much-maligned Sebastien Squillaci to somehow make a saving block as the hosts shouted for handball. A subsequent glance at the Frenchman's buffeted face revealed the truth.
Arshavin almost made the tie safe when he dashed clear down the left, but his shot flew across goal and clipped the far post.
Orient, though, were not to be denied a famous result as Tehoue drilled in an equaliser with just a minute left as Brisbane Road erupted.
