Arsene Wenger described Arsenal's astonishing victory at Reading in the Capital One Cup as a miracle after watching his side win a 7-5 classic.
The Gunners looked like they were going to be dumped out in the fourth round at the Madejski Stadium after falling 4-0 down in the opening 37 minutes.
But Theo Walcott inspired an epic comeback in the final seconds of normal time of a see-saw contest, which ultimately saw Arsenal progress to the quarter-finals after extra time.
"You always see new things in our game," Wenger told Sky Sports. "That is why it is never boring.
"It finished well for us but Reading made a fantastic start. We were not sharp, beaten in every single one-against-one and it was 4-0. It could have been one or two more.
"After that, I believe, in the second half, we came back after 4-1.
"We created chance after chance and it was 4-2 but, at 89 minutes, we still needed to score two goals.
"The miracle happened. In extra time, we were always in front."
