Arsenal 2 Liverpool 1. Arsenal exacted a thrilling revenge on Liverpool by knocking the Merseysiders out of the FA Cup and setting up a quarter-final showdown with Everton. It was a breathtaking match, one that neither side deserved to lose, but it was the Reds who left the Emirates empty-handed just eight days after humiliating Arsenal 5-1 in the league.

Liverpool now have nothing to play for this season except in the Premier League while Arsenal are still fighting on three fronts. In a little over 48 hours the Gunners host Bayern Munich in their last 16 Champions League confrontation and if that tie is even half as good as Sunday's encounter, supporters are in for another treat.
