Arsenal Vs Leads

By Richard Clarke
Arsenal marched in the FA Cup Fourth Round with a comprehensive 3-1 win at Leeds on Wednesday night.
Arsène Wenger's side had needed a 90th-minute penalty to save this tie at Emirates Stadium 11 days earlier but, this evening, they dominated throughout.
Samir Nasri stole a goal in the fifth minute and then, after Andrey Arshavin and Marouane Chamakh had missed point-blank chances, Bacary Sagna plundered a second just past the half-hour.
Leeds rallied immediately when Bradley Johnson's thunderbolt reduced the arrears but Arsenal would kick-on after the break.
Fourteen minutes from time, they ended the discussion when Robin van Persie headed home from Nicklas Bendtner's inviting cross.
