Arsenal get through to the fourth round but it can be described as lucky after a poor performance in that first half.  Arsenal fell behind in the 7th minute and was lucky not to be losing by around three goals at half time. However, Ramsey scored straight after half time before Giroud scored the winner in the 89th minute.

Arsenal take all three points and move up to third in the table. However, the game will be remembered for a long time due to the opener scored by Giroud. A wonderful scorpion flick finish may go down as one of Arsenals best ever goals. Iwobi then scored a nice header in the second half to make it a comfortable afternoon. 

A last grasp goal from Giroud secured all three points for Arsenal. The points were much needed with rivals Chelsea and Manchester United securing big wins. However, for most of the afternoon it looked like more dropped points with a poor display.

Two defeats in a week sees Arsenal slip to 4th in the league although, the officiating has been poor in both games.  Arsenal took the lead through a Walcott goal but Arsenal failed to capitalise on the poor City defending. An offside which wasn’t given changed the match with Sane the scorer before Sterling won it for City.

Arsenal come from behind to collect the three points and move up to first in the Premier League.  Xhaka conceded a penalty for an elbow but it looked harsh on the replays. Walcott levelled the match before goals from Ӧzil and Iwobi secured the points. The only real concern is the injury to Mustafi.
