Arsenal set up 6th round tie at Manchester United with 5-0 win over Leyton Orient

Arsenal 5 – Leyton Orient 0 (FA Cup 5th round replay, March 2, 2011) (Longer highlights) Arsenal got off to a lightning start at the Emirates as Marouane Chamakh broke his goalscoring drought turning in a Rosicky cross. The Gunners doubled their lead on the half hour through a fine Nicklas Bendtner header into the far post from Gibbs’ left wing cross. The injured Cesc Fabregas didn’t seem to be too interested in the game as he was caught yawning in the crowd. Any hopes of an Orient upset were dead and buried in the 43rd minute as Nicklas Bendtner curler in a beauty into the far corner from the edge of the box. At the start of the second half Abou Diaby ran in on goal but placed his shot wide. On the hour Gibbs was fouled in the box and Nicklas Bendtner claimed his hat-trick and Arsenal’s fourth goal of the night. The fifth came from the left boot of Gael Clichy, a fine strike and just his second goal for the Gunners.
