Arsenal, Everton book quarter-final tickets

Arsenal FC were made to work hard to edge Liverpool FC 2-1 and take their place in the last eight of the FA Cup, where they will play an Everton FC side who ousted Swansea City AFC.

Arsenal FC dug deep to beat Liverpool FC 2-1 and progress to the FA Cup quarter-finals, where they will play an Everton FC side who overcame Swansea City AFC 3-1.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain gave the Gunners a 16th-minute lead when he steered in after a Yaya Sanogo effort had been blocked, and shortly after the break the England international turned provider. Striding to the byline, the pacy midfielder crossed for Lukas Podolski, who fired past Brad Jones first time.

That sparked a vibrant response from the visitors, with Steven Gerrard halving the deficit from the spot after Luis Suárez had been felled by Podolski. Łukasz Fabiański then did expertly to deny Daniel Sturridge one-on-one, and Daniel Agger headed wide as Arsenal rode out the storm.

At Goodison Park, meanwhile, the tie was four minutes old when Lacina Traoré marked his Everton debut with a goal. Jonathan De Guzmán quickly restored parity with a header, but Everton wrestled back the initiative after the interval, Steven Naismith restoring their lead before a Leighton Baines penalty completing the formalities.

As for third-tier Sheffield United FC, they posted a 3-1 comeback victory against Nottingham Forest FC at Bramall Lane to set up a possible Steel City derby in the next round, Chris Porter registering twice in added time.
