Sheffield Wednesday Head Coach Carlos Carvalhal has praised his players and said that Tuesday’s 3-0 win over Arsenal was “amazing”.
Goals from Ross Wallace, Lucas Joao and Sam Hutchinson gave the Owls a convincing victory over the high-flying Premier League side, as they progressed to the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup.
Carvalhal’s side were hugely impressive on the night and never looked like losing the tie once Scottish winger Wallace opened the scoring in the 27th minute, and the Portuguese manager was quick to praise his players.
Speaking to BBC Sport, Carvalhal said: “It was an amazing night for the club and our self-confidence.
“What the players did was fantastic. They followed our plan 100% so we blocked the game.
“Arsenal have a very strong game inside and the full-backs provide the width so what we tried to do was press inside and block the outside with our wingers.”

Wednesday currently sit ninth in the Championship, just four points outside the play-off places.
The Owls are in good form and are unbeaten in seven league matches but the victory of Arsene Wenger’s men will give them a little more momentum.
They host struggling Nottingham Forest on Saturday as they look to close the gap between themselves and sixth-placed Birmingham City.
