Smooth Arsenal cruise past Burnley

Arsenal made light work of Burnley in the fifth round of the FA Cup today, beating them 3-0 on a grey day at the Emirates Stadium. Goals from Vela, Eduardo and Eboue were enough to see off the Lancashire outfit, who had knocked the Londoners out of the Carling Cup earlier in the season.

There was to be no repeat of that feat however, as Arsenal swept the Championship club aside with a classy display of passing football. Eduardo's goal in particular will please any gooners out there the most; his volleyed finish for Arsenal's second goal shows that he's back to his best form.

Arsenal now face a sixth round tie at home to Hull City, to be played on 18 March to catch up with the rest of the quarter finals, which are being played this weekend.

The draw for the semi finals takes place tonight at 6.45pm.
