Arsenal 5-0 Lincoln City: Gunners far too good for Imps

"It might be nice if Wenger finished his time at Arsenal by winning the FA Cup and they are lucky to have a game against non-league Lincoln this weekend in the quarter-finals".

Theo Walcott's goal at the end of the first half opened the floodgates but it was far from an embarrassment, with the Lincoln players applauded from the field by both sets of fans.

Giroud side-footed Arsenal's second in the 53rd minute and shortly after any hopes of a Lincoln comeback were snuffed out when Waterfall turned Kieran Gibbs' cross into his own goal.

City have reached the last four of the FA Cup for the first time in four years as Guardiola aims to win some silverware in his first season in English football. They've got one over us.

Wenger, who has managed the Gunners for more than 20 years, has heard calls for him to step down growing lately as results took a turn for the worst in the last week.

"We are favourites, but when you are at a big club, you are favourites 90 per cent of the time and you have to deal with that".

"The key for us is to learn from this".

When these top teams do field weaker teams it may often seem like they aren't taking the competition seriously but in fact they may just be trying to protect their better players from injury.

The Gunners overcame a poor first half to register a 5-0 victory over Lincoln City at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. Only one victor today though.

Arsenal come into the cup tie on the back of 5-1 home trashing by Bayern Munich as they crashed out of the Champions League and left manager Arsene Wenger facing more questions over his future.

Sanchez made it four with a delicious curling shot, while Ramsey danced around a host of exhausted bodies to add a tap-in with 15 minutes to play.

Maintaining confidence after letting in five against a superior side is now the task facing the Lincoln manager Danny Cowley, although he at least was able to admit that his side had been comprehensively outplayed after half-time - as is natural given they were playing a team four divisions above them. "That was one hell of a long 45 minutes for us". I'm sure the fans would be the same as well. "If we start well, we might have 60,000 people behind us, not just 9,000 (travelling Lincoln fans)", the 26-year-old told British media.

Meanwhile the draw for the FA Cup semi-finals will take place on Monday after the Chelsea v Manchester United match at Stamford Bridge.
