FA Cup: Arsenal’s Oliver Giroud and Theo Walcott get two each – but everyone’s laughing about an awful Hull


In the fifth round FA Cup clash, Arsenal smashed Hull 4-0 at the KC Stadium with Oliver Giroud and Theo Walcott scoring two each.

But it was a mistake by the Championship side’s captain David Meyler leading to Arsenal’s first goal in particular that had everyone laughing (sorry, talking).

Meyler tried to pass back to Hull’s keeper, but inadvertently set up the perfect ball for Giroud.

Giroud’s wife gave birth on Monday night – and everyone loved his goal celebration.

Meanwhile Theo Walcott was slated by everyone – until he scored confidence-boosting third and fourth goals.

But it wasn’t all good news for Arsene Wenger’s men with more injuries. Gabriel hobbled off in the second half, substituted by Aaron Ramsey, who had to go off himself in the last 20 minutes.

As for Hull, well, what’s the phrase? We’re concentrating on the league?
