FA Cup 4th round:

Big guns progress in cup as Sanchez and Mertesacker goals take Arsenal through, Blades cut down QPR Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and holders Arsenal reached the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday, while third-tier Sheffield United demonstrated their cup pedigree by eliminating Queens Park Rangers.

Arsenal progressed after winning 2-0 at home to Hull City in a repeat of last season’s final, which saw Arsene Wenger’s side end their nine-year trophy drought by coming from behind to win 3-2.

The reunion with Steve Bruce’s Hull was a less dramatic affair. Per Mertesacker headed Arsenal in front from Alexis Sanchez’s 20th-minute corner and Sanchez sealed victory with a precise shot eight minutes from time. Premier League joint-leaders Manchester City were given a scare by second-tier Sheffield Wednesday before coming through 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium thanks to a 91st-minute winner from James Milner.

This experience has provided me with a very useful insight into football and the opportunity to carry out extensive research into the game including its players, the stadiums, the rules and tactics and I have also been grateful to meet a wide range of people connected to football in the UK, Tanzania, Germany .....
