Arsenal 4-1 Everton: Brief Match Rundown.

On our way to Wembley. Hahaha. What a win against a tough side who held us to ransome the last time we met, making us share points with them. This time around we showed them what we truly are; The Red and White Army.

A 4-1 win against Everton on Saturday afternoon secured our progress to the semi-final of the FA Cup. As difficult as it looked from the moment we got that draw our boys still went on to prove they are capable of ending our long wait for silverware. Superb teamwork was the key to our victory.

Two goals came in the first half; one for both teams. Mesut Ozil seemed to have gotten back his spark as he gave Arsenal an early lead seven minutes into the match. Santi directed a pass in the direction of the German who confidently struck it past the goalkeeper. Oh! Did I say he struck it into the net? Sorry that goal looked more like pass. Everton equalised in the 33rd minute after Arsenal's attempt was blocked and Barkley threw a long ball to Mirallas, Mirallas to Lukaku, anf finally Lukaku scored. The first half ended with both sides hoping for a turnaround in the next 45 minutes. Pat Rice, came to the pitch at half time.

The early period of the final half witnessed chances from both hosts and visitors but none of them made a difference to the scoreline. In the 61st minute Olivier giroud came on for Yaya Sanogo. That change yielded something great.

 Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain won a penalty which was taken by Arteta. The referee had to call for a retake because he noticed Giroud advance beyond acceptable limits. The second penalty was scored and it became 2-1. The Londoners were not satisfied so they struggled on. At the end of it all, they were able to add two more goals. Giroud who came in as a sub bagged a brace. The Frenchman's first was assisted by his fellow compatriot, Bacary Sagna while his second came following moves from Ozil, Cazorla and Rosicky. 4-1 it all ended at the Emirates.

A nice way to gain confidence ahead of our Champions League return leg tie against Bayern Munich on Tuesday. I still know and strongly believe we can go to Germany to spring a surprise. We were so close last season.
