Arsenal booked their place in the quarter finals of the FA Cup with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Hull City at the KC Stadium.

Olivier Giroud was back among the goals as he scored twice to put us in control before Theo Walcott wrapped things up with a late brace to set-up a last 8 tie with Watford on Sunday.

Here are my ratings:

Ospina  6/10 | A very comfortable evening works from the Colombian international. Only called into action a couple of time, although his save from Meyler in the first half was vital.

Chambers  7/10 | Was beaten too easily a few times down the right but was far more comfortable when he moved in to the middle of defence.

Mertesacker  6/10 | Forced off in the first half with slight concussion after a nasty clash of heads.

Gabriel  7/10 | Was having a decent game until he too was forced off, this time with a suspected hamstring injury. Hopefully it’s nothing serious.

Gibbs  7/10 | Solid shift from Gibbs once again and he almost scored a beauty but saw his long-range strike come back off the bar.

Flamini  6/10 | Not the most influential player on the pitch but did a job. Looked better when he switched to right-back to be honest.

Elneny  6.5/10 | Another decent performance from the Egyptian. Moved the ball well in midfield and covered a lot of ground.

Walcott  7.5/10 | Very poor in the first half but came to life after the break as he set-up Giroud and scored two fine goals.

Iwobi  7.5/10 | A very lively performance from the young midfielder. Showed a good range of passing and put himself about too.

Campbell  7/10 | Capped off a solid display with a superb assist for Walcott’s first goal.

Giroud  8/10 | Back among the goals with a well taken brace. That should do his confidence the world of good.


Monreal 7/10 | Showed his versatility with a solid display at centre-back.

Ramsey N/A | Only lasted 10 minutes after picked up a thigh injury.
