Want to know what happened in the first two FA Cup quarter finals? We round up the results from Saturday March 11.
Lincoln City’s fairytale FA Cup run is over after they were beaten 5-0 by Arsenal at the Emirates.
Danny Cowley’s side had already dispatched Burnley and Brighton but the Gunners were a step too far for the National League side.
They managed to hold out until added time in the first half before Theo Walcott played a, perhaps unintentional, one-two with Keiran Gibbs before placing his shot low past Paul Farman.
From there Arsene Wenger’s side pushed on and Olivier Giroud slotted in after good play in the Lincoln box from Hector Bellerin and Alexis Sanchez.
Luke Waterfall accidentally turned the ball into his own net from Sanchez’s cross just before the hour mark.
Before two quick-fire goals from the Chilean and Aaron Ramsey wrapped the game up for Arsenal.
In the other match, Manchester City went to the Riverside and won comfortably against Middlesbrough 2-0.
David Silva gave Pep Guardiola’s team the lead after just three minutes when he was all alone in the box to score after Pablo Zabaleta’s cross was miskicked by Raheem Sterling.
Sergio Aguero had hit the post but the striker added the second finishing from Leroy Sane’s cross.
