FA Cup Report: Arsenal 5-0 Lincoln City

FA Cup, Match Report, NewsNow


In what was a precarious looking tie, with Arsenal under immense pressure, our quality won out and we booked our semi-final place at Wembley, where we will face Man City in April.

Theo Walcott opened the scoring on the stroke of half time after Lincoln City looked to have seen the half out with some great football, and we had Petr Cech, in for the injured Ospina for keeping the scores level.

Our fitness and quality started to shine, and Oli G hit a second on 53 mins, before an unfortunate OG (not Oli G) saw us 3-0 up and coasting.

Alexis scored the goal of the game to make it 4, before Aaron Ramsey walked in a 5th to complete the rout.

Arsene Wenger spent an hour and a half chatting to the Lincoln manager’s after the game, plenty of shirts swapped and a good day out had by all.

Just Aguero’s Man City stand between us and another cup final, while Spurs play Chelsea in the other semi-final in a repeat of the game where Spurs threw away a rare title challenge last season, after being 2-0 up and coasting, then blowing the lead, and then blowing their chance of finishing second by losing to 10 man, relegated Newcastle on the last game of the season, leaving Arsenal to somehow finish above them for the 19th consecutive year.
