Arsenal midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles believes the squad proved the critics who question their character wrong by scoring a late winner to beat Sheffield United on Sunday.

The Gunners defeated Sheffield United 2-1 at Bramall Lane to reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup, with midfielder Dani Ceballos finding the net in injury time.

Before that Arsenal had taken the lead through a Nicolas Pepe penalty, but the tie had looked set for extra time when David McGoldrick equalised in the 87th minute.
