Easy. Hopefully Liverpool and United draw each other in the semi's, leaving us with Hull.

De Gea has made a few howlers this season. Don't worry, he'll make up for it in the shootout.

Were they singing "Ashley Fletcher, he left us for shit"? Bad timing, if so.

The West Ham fans were signing "Ashley Fletcher, he left 'cus you're shit".

Good half, we've had the better of it and should probably have gone in with a couple of goals under our belt considering the chances we made. There were a couple of occasions where either Martial or Ibra were too greedy with a shot with the better option being another pass to create an easier chance, both times to Mkhitaryan. West Ham did threaten at times but the goal they eventually got was the result of a De Gea mistake.

2-0 flattered Arsenal. Coulda been 5.

Hilarious watching them resort to diving to try and get back in the game.

No doubt it will be "Southampton beat a much changed Arsenal side".

Well that was good. Been a few years since we made the semi-final of a competition. (JPT 2010) COYR's! :D

Probably our worst performance of the season but to be expected with the team we put out. Iwobi a bright spot, and I thought the CB's, Martinez and Xhaka were ok, but the rest were below average.
Jenkinson is nowhere near good enough for us, would rather see Gabriel at RB based solely on the weekends match.

Good to see us score some nice goals.

Jose simply can't afford to leave out Mkhitaran any longer, he glues our attack together with his skill, pace, intelligence, enterprise, directness, strength (basically everything we've been crying out for this season).

Convincing win, couple of assists for Mkhitaryan, couple of goals for Martial, Ibra on the scoresheet twice, Jones and Rojo looking very solid together, Rooney again looking like he is shaking off his dire run of form. Even Schweini got some minutes! Good stuff.

Was hoping West Ham's game went to extra-time ahead of the weekend's match. This is the limit of my interest in this cup.

It's a shame Leeds went out last night - would've been fun to draw them in a two-legged affair.

Good performance from Manchester United, if only they could convert their cup form into the league they'd be flying. West Ham didn't half make it easy for them, shocking performance and if they don't sort it out they will be well in the shit come the end of the season. Great result for Southampton at the Emirates too, can't believe Wenger went with the side he did though surely in a quarter final you start to take it more serious? Would love to see a two legged tie between Liverpool and United, Saints and Hull would be a good match up as well.

United will be pleased with that especially with first leg at home, could be all over before they go to Hull. The other tie is far more interesting as a game, depends who takes it more serious.
