Time to turn our attentions to the Cup.

:00:00.:00:24.

Eight teams remain in this season's Emirates FA Cup as the quarter-final

:00:25.:00:26.

weekend got underway and a trip to Wembley for the winners

:00:27.:00:33.

First stop is the Emirates as Arsenal welcomed Lincoln City -

:00:34.:00:36.

the non-league side who have taken this season's competition by storm.

:00:37.:00:43.

Over the top for Robinson. Catch them if you can. This link loco is

:00:44.:00:56.

not for stopping. Lincoln City are through in the dying seconds! It is

:00:57.:01:01.

Robinson. It is three! They have only gone and done it. Their FA Cup

:01:02.:01:10.

adventure continues. Brilliant! It is in! The first time in 103 years

:01:11.:01:16.

the FA Cup has a non-league side in the last eight!

:01:17.:01:19.

So this is history in the making.

:01:20.:01:21.

They standard their incredible journey in front of 765 spectators

:01:22.:01:31.

and now the eyes of the football world are on Lincoln City as they

:01:32.:01:37.

strive to become the first non-league FA Cup semifinalists

:01:38.:01:42.

since 1912. Arsenal 12 times cup winners should win but given the

:01:43.:01:47.

wretched week they had, who knows. A collective of brilliantly

:01:48.:01:49.

inconsistent individuals against a consistent individual collector.

:01:50.:01:52.

Arsene Wenger lay down a challenge to his players to show they care as

:01:53.:02:00.

he makes just to changes. Kieron Gibbs coming on. Lincoln unchanged,

:02:01.:02:14.

and they have three Arsenal found in the side including Jack Muldoon who

:02:15.:02:18.

will still be in a Pilates class with his mum on Thursday.

:02:19.:02:28.

It is a noisy Emirates Stadium and the Lincoln fans are making all the

:02:29.:02:35.

noise. Bold run again from Kieron Gibbs forcing the corner. Short

:02:36.:02:46.

corner. Kieron Gibbs. Incomes Koscielny and Olivia Shirov. Back to

:02:47.:02:50.

Walcott. Koscielny Bacchin and squeezed out by Luke Waterfall. Good

:02:51.:02:59.

save from Paul Farman. Denying Theo Walcott a fifth FA Cup goal this

:03:00.:03:05.

season. That is the closest we have come so far.

:03:06.:03:21.

Arnold. Nathan Arnold! Petr Cech said but only just. Nathan Arnold

:03:22.:03:26.

nearly wrote himself into the pages of FA Cup folklore. Petr Cech denied

:03:27.:03:34.

him. The best that we have seen from Lincoln City and that is what Nathan

:03:35.:03:45.

Arnold can do to you. Kieron Gibbs. Mesut Ozil, virtually the whole game

:03:46.:03:49.

has been played in the Lincoln house. Arsenal have created very

:03:50.:03:53.

little, Lincoln have stopped them doing so. Nearly wet all the way

:03:54.:04:02.

through, Olivia Shirov. Pushed away by Paul Farman. Got a second

:04:03.:04:10.

quickly. Here's Aaron Ramsey. Mesut Ozil. A little mob. Olivia Shirov,

:04:11.:04:20.

back in for Theo Walcott and he gets it now. Theo Walcott! Arsenal have

:04:21.:04:25.

the lead on the stroke of half-time. Lincoln City, their first-half

:04:26.:04:29.

endeavours undone and can they now come back is the big question? Theo

:04:30.:04:37.

Walcott, his fifth goal in the FA Cup run this season. No player left

:04:38.:04:41.

in the competition has scored more than him. Placed it well. Lincoln

:04:42.:04:47.

failed to get the second ball away. Deflected, bad as the big

:04:48.:04:53.

deflection. Arsenal really had to work for it. Lovely ball slid up to

:04:54.:05:00.

Olivia Shirov. Kieron Gibbs arriving. Olivia Shirov, parried by

:05:01.:05:07.

the goalkeeper. Kieron Gibbs! Could not get over the ball. Paul Farman

:05:08.:05:13.

did well to stop that from Olivia Shirov because it came from behind a

:05:14.:05:18.

defender. Paul Farman could only parry. Kieron Gibbs could not put

:05:19.:05:27.

in. Theo Walcott coming away from his man who allows him to ten. -- to

:05:28.:05:41.

turn. Mesut Ozil. Ms kick, Theo Walcott. Bellerin, Olivia Shirov and

:05:42.:05:52.

it is 2- nil. Well worked by Arsenal, they cut through Lincoln

:05:53.:05:55.

City and they're heading to the FA Cup semifinals barring a miracle

:05:56.:06:01.

comeback the National League team. Movement on and off the ball, Theo

:06:02.:06:05.

Walcott got into that position with clever movement. Good run from

:06:06.:06:12.

Bellerin. The comeback nice and simple, the goal simply executed.

:06:13.:06:16.

But this game has been far from simple for Arsenal. And the Cowley

:06:17.:06:23.

boys have got to comeback from two down. Arsene Wenger said today in

:06:24.:06:27.

this match programme notes, it was the Arsenal challenged to show care.

:06:28.:06:34.

And they have done today, I think. Bellerin. To Mesut Ozil. Space for

:06:35.:06:43.

Kieron Gibbs. Here is Alexis Sanchez. Out to Bellerin, lovely

:06:44.:06:49.

touch with Doctor terrific effort but wide. Did everything right

:06:50.:06:53.

except put it in the back of the net. Tried to bend it, just wide.

:06:54.:06:58.

Lincoln City now look like a team that has played 46 games this

:06:59.:07:02.

season. Since the turn of the year they have been playing weekend,

:07:03.:07:08.

midweek, we can, midweek and will continue that way through the rest

:07:09.:07:12.

of the season. Here is Alexis Sanchez. Mesut Ozil, Bellerin. Mesut

:07:13.:07:21.

Ozil has been as bright as a button since he came on. Alexis Sanchez to

:07:22.:07:30.

Kieron Gibbs. It is in off Luke Waterfall. Arsenal have a third.

:07:31.:07:34.

Lincoln City had held their own but suddenly Arsenal home and dry.

:07:35.:07:45.

Pre-nil to Arsenal. -- three. Alexis Sanchez.

:07:46.:07:54.

Brilliantly placed for an Arsenal fourth. They have put Lincoln City

:07:55.:07:58.

to the sword in the end. From the moment Bradley would miss timed this

:07:59.:08:04.

lunging tackle, Alexis Sanchez was favourite and has the class to

:08:05.:08:11.

produce that kind of finish. Arsenal have passed the ball well today and

:08:12.:08:15.

Lincoln had to do so much chasing. They look exhausted. Back to Alexis

:08:16.:08:24.

Sanchez. Clever movement again from Mesut Ozil. Poorly placed. Back to

:08:25.:08:37.

Alexis Sanchez. At the far post. And walked into the back of the net for

:08:38.:08:42.

an Arsenal fifth. Aaron Ramsey completes the victory. Lincoln City

:08:43.:08:47.

are out on their legs after such a wonderful odyssey through the FA

:08:48.:08:53.

Cup. Perhaps more history in this season but accommodation lies ahead

:08:54.:08:56.

for Arsenal but the team who have stirred Romeu back into the FA Cup,

:08:57.:09:01.

Lincoln City, are beaten team. -- stirred romance.

:09:02.:09:21.

Petr Cech made sure of that he had to make the save. The Lincoln boys

:09:22.:09:32.

are tired now. All credit to Arsenal. That is poor. It hits the

:09:33.:09:50.

bar. Aaron Ramsey teed himself up. Lovely effort by Alexis Sanchez.

:09:51.:09:56.

There is the final whistle. Lincoln City, they run comes to an end, the

:09:57.:09:59.

end of the Odyssey. They've done the FA Cup proud, the name of football

:10:00.:10:04.

proud. But there are beaten team at Arsenal today.

:10:05.:10:08.

In the second half Arsenal were frightening and it was a pleasure to

:10:09.:10:13.

see world-class players first time. Prasad felt like a long 45 minutes.

:10:14.:10:19.

It felt like Arsene Wenger had brought 15 players onto the pitch

:10:20.:10:22.

second half. We respect we will be fish and chip paper at Monday

:10:23.:10:26.

morning but if we can learn from experience today, playing against

:10:27.:10:30.

world-class players and throughout the FA Cup journey, then we will be

:10:31.:10:34.

better players and better people as a consequence. That is what we must

:10:35.:10:39.

make sure we do. They were well organised, they have clarity in

:10:40.:10:42.

their mind off what they wanted to do. And to give credit to the

:10:43.:10:47.

manager, when he gets that across to his team. The way he dealt with his

:10:48.:10:54.

players after the game, I think he has done exceptionally well. I know

:10:55.:10:59.

what they're like, they are winners and they would have been

:11:00.:11:01.

disappointed and I did not want them to miss this opportunity to

:11:02.:11:07.

celebrate with our supporters. Because we are not celebrating the

:11:08.:11:11.

loss, we are celebrating the journey we have had. It has been a tough

:11:12.:11:15.

week, one of the toughest in your career? I do not know. When I have a

:11:16.:11:21.

problem I always just try to sort it out. I am competitive. Always

:11:22.:11:27.

focused on solving the problem is that I face. And when you have

:11:28.:11:31.

sorted one out you straightaway have another. Sometimes the size of the

:11:32.:11:36.

problem is bigger and sometimes a bit smaller but you do not worry. It

:11:37.:11:43.

was crazy, all the game, I just could not stop smiling. I was

:11:44.:11:46.

turning around and smiling at the fans, it was on rail just a brush

:11:47.:11:51.

shoulders with the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, basically

:11:52.:11:54.

the whole team was world-class. That will live long in the memory. Couple

:11:55.:12:00.

of times I gave my head shake and any time there was a break in the

:12:01.:12:03.

game I was trying to take in as much as I could because it will probably

:12:04.:12:08.

not happen again in my career. What mementos have you got from the day?

:12:09.:12:14.

I have got Petr Cech, he signed his shirt for me. That will go up in my

:12:15.:12:18.

man shed in the bottom of the garden!

:12:19.:12:22.

We are all the same, the Romantics amongst us wanted something to come

:12:23.:12:27.

from that but it was a step too far. Arsenal are classified odyssey. But

:12:28.:12:31.

the first 40 minutes or so, they were a match for them. They were a

:12:32.:12:37.

match for them. And defensive qualities were superb. In general

:12:38.:12:40.

looking at the achievement, for a national team to get to the

:12:41.:12:44.

quarterfinals in the FA Cup is a great achievement. As a collective

:12:45.:12:48.

the club and fans are so proud of what they have achieved. Looking at

:12:49.:12:52.

the organisation defensively, it does not happen by accident. This is

:12:53.:12:57.

work and preparation by the managers, the players, buying into

:12:58.:13:01.

this belief that they can keep Arsenal and Bay and they did that

:13:02.:13:04.

for the best part of 40 minutes. Getting bodies behind the ball,

:13:05.:13:09.

affecting the ball, not letting Arsenal penetrate. Making them go

:13:10.:13:12.

around the sides. Arsenal have the lion's share of possession. Getting

:13:13.:13:18.

amongst the Arsenal players, not showing them too much respect. I

:13:19.:13:23.

thought it was excellent. Nathan Arnold working really hard. And the

:13:24.:13:29.

central defenders were exceptional. They were so physical in the box,

:13:30.:13:34.

powerful. Stayed alive to the second phases of the game. And put pressure

:13:35.:13:37.

on the ball. This is against Arsenal. The better team against

:13:38.:13:43.

Bayern Munich midweek for the first part of the game. And they kept them

:13:44.:13:47.

at bay and when they got the chance to go for it they looked dangerous

:13:48.:13:51.

.biz from Nathan Arnold, a great move. Ghost to the side and it takes

:13:52.:13:55.

an unbelievable saves from Petr Cech. That could have been 1- nil.

:13:56.:14:00.

And then you find out about the character of the Arsenal team. The

:14:01.:14:07.

revitalised the FA Cup. The Romantics, the fairy tale. They have

:14:08.:14:12.

been absolutely incredible. As good as they wear and is well organised,

:14:13.:14:16.

were you surprised that Arsenal seemed just not to have enough

:14:17.:14:19.

aggression or commitment. In the first half they did not seem to

:14:20.:14:20.

really be mentally in that match. Arsenal did not want to make

:14:21.:14:29.

mistakes. The handbrake was firmly on. This goal that Theo Walcott

:14:30.:14:36.

scores, they got very static, Lincoln. They defended well, though.

:14:37.:14:42.

It was one pass after another. It was a cool finish, just before

:14:43.:14:48.

half-time. Perfect for Arsenal. It is some accolade to see to Lincoln

:14:49.:14:52.

that Arsenal needed a goal to settle down. They should be better, and

:14:53.:14:58.

they were in the second half. The goal from Giroud wrapped things up

:14:59.:15:02.

in the second half. Arsenal use this as an exercise to get back to where

:15:03.:15:07.

we expect them to be. They played with swagger, but Lincoln can leave

:15:08.:15:11.

the stadium with their heads held high. Trevor, you have personally

:15:12.:15:16.

invested in this journey. You have been to the club a few times. You

:15:17.:15:20.

have observed the brothers. What will they take from this experience,

:15:21.:15:24.

apart from the financial rewards? They will remember it for the rest

:15:25.:15:29.

of their lives, and so will the fans. There will be a large sense of

:15:30.:15:34.

achievement, pride. Danny Cowley was talking to the players after the

:15:35.:15:39.

game, saying, enjoy this, the fans have turned out. 9000 at the

:15:40.:15:46.

Emirates Arena, an amazing achievement for a National League

:15:47.:15:49.

side. There are six points clear in the league. The players have bought

:15:50.:15:53.

into it at the football club. They have a big future, the team and

:15:54.:15:57.

certainly the manager. The community is engaged as well. We

:15:58.:15:59.

all appreciate what they have done. The day's other tie took place

:16:00.:16:03.

at the Riverside as Middlesbrough, struggling in the Premier League,

:16:04.:16:05.

welcomed Pep Guardiola's Manchester Pep Guardiola says of Manchester

:16:06.:16:12.

City do not win any silverware and it will not be a good season as he

:16:13.:16:17.

lives to lead them into their first ever semi-cup -- first FA Cup

:16:18.:16:23.

semifinal in four years. Any sort of left for Middlesbrough would be

:16:24.:16:29.

welcome in their predicament. Those on Adam Clayton's mother's side of

:16:30.:16:33.

the family are all City fans. For one day, they are hoping that he can

:16:34.:16:39.

help Middlesbrough upset the odds. Claudio Bravo maintains his run of

:16:40.:16:43.

starting in the FA Cup. He has kept only six clean sheets in his 25

:16:44.:16:48.

appearances for the club. He looks to help City to their first

:16:49.:16:53.

semifinal in four years. The third bottom in the Premier League against

:16:54.:16:58.

third top in the Premier League. Forget about domestic issues for at

:16:59.:17:05.

least 90 minutes. Middlesbrough zero Manchester City out of the FA Cup in

:17:06.:17:10.

four of their last five meetings. They will have to put in a

:17:11.:17:14.

performance to continue that in this particular game.

:17:15.:17:25.

Zabaleta is free. Surely it will go in in the end? It does from David

:17:26.:17:31.

Silva. Disastrous from Middlesbrough, just past the two

:17:32.:17:36.

minute mark. Manchester City already in front. David Silva has weighed in

:17:37.:17:42.

with his sixth goal of the season, his second in the FA Cup. Look at

:17:43.:17:49.

the space that Zabaleta Kaz. Then David Silva made absolutely sure.

:17:50.:17:52.

Totally unmarked. They could not miss. Middlesbrough, who outscored

:17:53.:18:00.

only 19 league goals all season, have to find one against the team in

:18:01.:18:06.

the top three in the Premier League. 4500 Manchester City fans have come

:18:07.:18:07.

north. They are in good voice. Manchester City giving away

:18:08.:18:21.

possession unnecessarily cheaply. The cross from Fabio was blocked by

:18:22.:18:31.

Sterling. The first cross of the cup tie for Middlesbrough. This may be

:18:32.:18:34.

an area that Middlesbrough feel they can profit from. Leadbitter's

:18:35.:18:42.

corner. And they have not. Claudio Bravo almost conceding. This is the

:18:43.:18:53.

second one. Gestede, just over. Middlesbrough thought they were

:18:54.:18:58.

over. Zabaleta was the important defender. Bravo was unconvincing.

:18:59.:19:06.

This could be problematic for Middlesbrough. Silva had time. De

:19:07.:19:10.

Bruyne could not get there, beaten to it by Fabio. NICE survive. --

:19:11.:19:23.

Middlesbrough survive. That was wonderful from Silva. Sane. It

:19:24.:19:32.

should have been 2-0. He would agree. Watch this from David Silva.

:19:33.:19:41.

Sliding behind Sane but he should have made better contact than that.

:19:42.:19:52.

Really well done by Sane. Waltzing his way through. Sterling was beaten

:19:53.:20:00.

to it. An injection of pace, the drop of the shoulder. He was past

:20:01.:20:05.

Barragan. He could not pick out Raheem Sterling.

:20:06.:20:15.

The cross from de Roon. The header from Stuani. Straight at Claudio

:20:16.:20:22.

Bravo. This is what Middlesbrough have to do, be direct.

:20:23.:20:43.

Toure looking for the ball over the top. Back from De Bruyne. Can

:20:44.:20:51.

Sterling finish? He cannot. Another Manchester City chance goes begging.

:20:52.:20:57.

No wonder he looks worried. They should have been out of sight. He

:20:58.:21:03.

had time, it took the touch. Then he got underneath it.

:21:04.:21:14.

Fabio, outnumbered in the end. This is De Bruyne, with Sterling on his

:21:15.:21:25.

right. He has seen him. Raheem Sterling, looking for Aguero.

:21:26.:21:33.

Middlesbrough survive, yet again. Sterling's delivery, the perfectly

:21:34.:21:37.

timed run from Aguero. There was a touch from Guzan. Just the faintest

:21:38.:21:41.

of touches to take it on the post. Silva, with space and time. Back to

:21:42.:22:03.

Silva. It was a good strike. It has been sent away for a corner by

:22:04.:22:09.

Guzan. He had time to assess the situation, David Silva. The keeper

:22:10.:22:15.

was at full stretch. That is cleared only as far as Sane. The German

:22:16.:22:24.

international might fancy a try. Guzan was required again. It was an

:22:25.:22:29.

excellent effort from Sane. It was definitely going in. It was well

:22:30.:22:36.

watched by Guzan. He does not want any dramatic the Manchester City end

:22:37.:22:40.

in the remaining minutes. 21 trophies in seven seasons as a

:22:41.:22:44.

manager. He is close to taking another step towards one in his

:22:45.:22:47.

first season at Manchester City. The Sane, in full stride. -- Sane,

:22:48.:23:05.

in full stride. Into worse Aguero. Finally, the scoreline has a more

:23:06.:23:10.

realistic look about it. Sergio Aguero, four in four in the FA Cup,

:23:11.:23:15.

with the goal that could see his team in an FA Cup semifinal for the

:23:16.:23:22.

first time in four years. Created by Sane. What about that for a

:23:23.:23:27.

delivery? Aguero did the rest. It has been a long time coming, but

:23:28.:23:32.

eventually City have the two goal advantage.

:23:33.:23:41.

That was awkward for Guzan. Sterling following in. He is offside. Aguero

:23:42.:24:03.

with the drop of the shoulder. As he struck it, Sterling was probably

:24:04.:24:07.

offside. It was a close call. He is taking on Otamendi, going

:24:08.:24:22.

around him. Towards Negredo. Then Fabio. Virtually of the line by

:24:23.:24:26.

Stones. That would have made it interesting. Fabio had to head it.

:24:27.:24:35.

Stones had to clean it. It was outstanding, from the beginning. The

:24:36.:24:38.

goal was the consequence of our approach, it was brilliant. There

:24:39.:24:43.

was one period in the first half, for 15 minutes, we missed easy balls

:24:44.:24:47.

and you can always see the counterattack. Middlesbrough are

:24:48.:24:53.

dangerous with the crosses. It was a good performance in the second half.

:24:54.:24:56.

I regret how many chances we created and how few goals we scored. Even

:24:57.:25:00.

conceding the goal, the team was good, the crowd was good. The last

:25:01.:25:07.

game were awful for us. I was a little bit concerned with the

:25:08.:25:10.

atmosphere, especially when we conceded the first goal. But this

:25:11.:25:13.

group has been working together for the last three years. It was

:25:14.:25:18.

important to win the game in 90 minutes. Especially because we

:25:19.:25:23.

played a couple of days ago against.... We have a massive game

:25:24.:25:27.

on Wednesday against Monaco. It was really good to go through to the

:25:28.:25:33.

next round. -- against Stoke. It will be special to go back to

:25:34.:25:38.

Wembley. When I was a football player, we played the final

:25:39.:25:42.

Champions League at the old Wembley. When I was Barcelona manager, I won

:25:43.:25:47.

a second Champions League at Wembley. I have good memories.

:25:48.:25:50.

People talk about the atmosphere, Saturday and Sunday, four teams,

:25:51.:26:00.

four sets of supporters. I am very pleased to be able to live that.

:26:01.:26:04.

Those goals are fast as that Manchester City of scored in any

:26:05.:26:08.

competition this season. The speed of their start maybe Middlesbrough

:26:09.:26:12.

start look even more sluggish and the defending worse. Karanka said he

:26:13.:26:17.

thought his team were magnificent, but there are things they could do

:26:18.:26:21.
