Carl Jenkinson is delighted with Arsenal's comeback victory over Reading despite their poor performance at the back.

Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson has admitted that his side's start to their League Cup fourth-round clash against Reading was "poor".

The Gunners went down 4-0 at ​the Madejski Stadium on Tuesday after just 37 minutes, but recovered to win the tie 7-5 after extra time to advance to the quarter-finals.

"To be honest we didn't start, it was poor, it wasn't Arsenal and it wasn't good enough," Jenkinson is quoted as saying by the BBC.

"But we summed up what we're about, we were 4-0 down and no-one ever gives up at Arsenal and to come back shows a lot of strength and a good mentality."

The draw for the quarter-finals of the League Cup will take place on Wednesday.
