Arsenal clinch victory in FA cup
January 10, 2021 2:13 pm
The extra-time goals from Emile Smith Rowe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put defending FA champions Arsenal on track for its title defense.
The Gunners put up a strong performance to beat a stubborn Newcastle 2-nil in the FA Cup third round.
In-form Smith Rowe had an eventful evening after arriving as a second-half substitute, seeing a red card rightly rescinded before opening the scoring.
Aubameyang tapped in the second after a slick move cut Newcastle open.
The Gunners, who have won the FA Cup on a record 14 occasions, go into the fourth-round draw having being knocked out in the third round just once in the past 25 years.
