One for sorrow, Two for joy, Three for a girl, Four for a boy.... Magpiiiiiies!
Arsenal marched into the Quarter-Finals of the Carling Cup with a convincing win at Newcastle United last night. Four goals - one crazy, one controversial and two classy – did the trick to leave Arsène Wenger’s side just two steps from Wembley.
An attempted nodded clearance from Ryan Taylor hit his own keeper Tim Krul before going into the Magpies net to give Arsenal the lead. Theo Walcott raced through and dinked in a second after Nicklas Bendtner appeared to block a Magpies defender as he came back from an offside position.
Bendtner then curled in a shot and Walcott slotted in Arsenal's fourth.
So Arsenal join Aston Villa, Birmingham City, Ipswich Town, Manchester United, West Brom, West Ham United and Wigan Athletic in the draw for the quarter-finals this Saturday.
