General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +2 Neither side are playing at full pace, with Everton seemingly conceding that their cup run is over for another season. Arsenal still press forward for another goal, but Baines clears under pressure from the onrushing Giroud.
90' Three minutes of stoppage time have been awarded, with the result of this game being a formality at this point.
89' Arsenal's fans are gleefully singing of their future visit to Wembley, as this game heads into the dying embers. Lukaku musters a weak shot, which Fabianski is able to clutch with ease, much to the amusement of the Emirates crowd. It's been relatively comfortable for Szczesny's deputy today.
88' C. Jenkinson enters the game and replaces K. Gibbs.
87' Blink and you'd have missed it! Everton have gone from having half a chance of reaching the semi-final, to being three goals behind and having absolutely no chance of progressing. The Toffees have tailed off in the past 15 minutes, but this scoreline is flattering. Giroud is fed by Rosicky, before arrowing a low drive wide of Joel's far post.
85' O. Giroud has scored a goal for Arsenal! Assist by M. Özil.
GOOOOOOOAL! GIROUD GRABS ANOTHER AND IT'S 4-1! The Gunners are heading to Wembley, and two goals in as many minutes from Giroud have sewn this game up! An incisive break, with Ozil setting the ball up on a plate for the France international to slide home!
84' Gerard Deulofeu enters the game and replaces R. Barkley.
83' O. Giroud has scored a goal for Arsenal! Assist by B. Sagna.
GOOOOOOAL! GIROUD MAKES IT THREE! Arsenal are so close to reaching the FA Cup semi-final now, they can almost taste it! Sagna marauds down the right, before waiting at the byeline for Giroud to arrive, before the French striker turns the ball home instinctively!
82' Everton look to press onto the edge of the Gunners' penalty area, but McGeady is penalised for a high foot on Vermaelen, who was attempting to head a loose ball. Mertesacker, moments earlier, made a very important clearing header to turn away a Coleman cross.
80' As we head into the dying stages of the game, Everton really need to come up with something if they are to stay in contention for a place in the semi-final. They've seen more possession in the second half, but there's a sense that Arsenal have been prepared to sit back since their goal. Deulofeu is still on the bench, and the Barcelona loanee has a brief history of scoring late against Arsenal.
