Walcott's late winner sends Arsenal into fifth round

A late goal from substitute Theo Walcott sent Arsenal into the FA Cup fifth round in a 3-2 victory against Brighton at the AMEX Stadium.

Summer signing Olivier Giroud had twice given Arsene Wenger’s side the lead but the North Londoners were pegged back on both occasions by Gus Poyet’s well-drilled men through goals from Ashley Barnes and debutant Leonardo Ulloa.

The result was harsh on the Seagulls, who had knocked out Newcastle in the previous round, but Arsenal showed fighting spirit of their own as the Gunners aim to win their first trophy in eight years.
