Arsenal cruise into the semi-finals of the FA Cup
Following Manchester City earlier on in the day, Arsenal are into the FA Cup semi-finals and briefly, the pressure might be off Arsene Wenger.
Defeats to Liverpool and Bayern Munich in the past week have not been forgotten but Arsenal did show some attacking flair albeit against a non-league side in Lincoln.
The Gunners were made to wait until the strike of half-time for the opener from Theo Walcott.
And, in the second half, Arsenal ran riot somewhat with Lincoln unable to show the form that has seen them top the league and likely ensure they will be a League Two side next season.
After Walcott’s opener, Olivier Giroud, Luke Waterfall (own goal), Alexis Sanchez & Aaron Ramsey completed the rout.
See all the Arsenal goals below.
The FA Cup semi-final draw, which now involves Arsenal and Manchester City, will be made on Monday after the Manchester United v Chelsea match.
