Mikel Arteta burst out laughing when he was asked to sum up how big his job is at Arsenal.

The Spaniard inherited something of a mess from his compatriot Unai Emery and has been doing his best to steady the ship this season.

Arsenal suffered two defeats in their opening matches since the restart, but are back to winning ways following victories over Southampton and Sheffield United.

The win over the Blades in the FA Cup saw the Gunners progress to the semi-finals of the competition for the 30th time.

Arteta was asked for his thoughts on the win, and to comment on how big the job is to turn Arsenal back into a top-four team.

He responded with a laugh, before composing himself and telling BT Sport: “We still have a massive gap to fill in, we have to improve in many departments a lot.

“We have to respect the process, it’s been really difficult, with the stop and start and stop and start and stop and start, but we will get it right.

“I am convinced of that. We need a little bit of time, that’s all.”

On the match itself, he added: “I am really pleased. This is a difficult place to come and get a win. We are back at Wembley. I am really happy with the attitude and performance of the players.

“It is a great opportunity to try and win a title and play in Europe. We have played four away games since the restart. Thank you to the Premier League for our calendar playing every three days. But we go again on Wednesday.

“I knew Sheffield United were going to have moments. They are so good at their game plans and putting teams under pressure. We conceded form a long throw which is so hard to defend. But we were able to win the game.”
