Leyton Orient 1-1 Arsenal | The FA Cup 5th Round

Leyton Orient vs Arsenal, R5, The FA Cup 5th Round – 20/02/eleven The FA Cup sponsored by E.ON Jonathan Tehoue’s beautiful 89th moment equaliser earned League One facet Leyton Orient an unlikely FA Cup fifth round replay with Arsenal. The Gunners had dominated possession for most of the tie and believed Tomas Rosicky’s 2nd-half header would be sufficient to set up a quarter-final clash with Manchester United. But Orient, who arrived into the match on the back again of an amazing run of only one defeat in their previous twenty games, in no way gave up and received their reward when substitute Tehoue bulldozed his way by means of two problems and buried his shot previous Manuel Almunia. It had previously been a aggravating day for the Gunners, who arrived to Brisbane Street on the again of their midweek Champions League win over Barcelona seeking to keep their push for silverware on 4 fronts. This game was constantly going to be a quite diverse check to the clash with the Spaniards, specifically since Gunners boss Arsene Wenger picked a quite different team, producing 10 adjustments. Alex Song was the only survivor of that victory in the beginning XI at Brisbane Road but a side containing Rosicky, Andrey Arshavin and Marouane Chamakh should even now have witnessed off Orient with ease. But they did not, generally because of a lack of urgency in the last 3rd, and some bad finishing when they did flip their vastly exceptional possession into probabilities. As well typically, they had been kept at arms duration – Nicklas Bendtner and Chamakh failed to problems
