Arsenal FC ran rout in the second half in front of a near 60,000 home crowd against Lincoln City FC to book their place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
Arsenal were heavy favourites going into the game and they ran out 5-0 winners over Lincoln City FC to book a place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
Every player contributed to the cause, with Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey, Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud registering themselves on the scoresheet. But, it was the Chilean who was named the man of the match and the attacker received plaudits from fans on the social media platform for his performance.

Arsenal beating Lincoln 5-0 is to divert our attention from their 5-1 demolition by Bayern Munich. Arsene Wenger is a fraudster. #FACup

Arsene Wenger is actually being tactically outdone by two P.E teachers. The man should never manage another team.

Was Arsene Wenger a great coach, or did he inherited top players ?? Are we now perhaps seeing his actual coaching ability ??

But, people were also appreciative towards Lincoln City for the effort put in by them, especially in the first half.
Lincoln City#s #FACup journey is over…. but what a journey.
