Stoke City Advances Round 5 of FA Cup Defeating Arsenal 3-1

Stoke City has caused a huge upset by defeating Arsenal 3-1 in the fourth round of FA Cup 2010. At half time, score was 1-1. With this loss, Arsenal suffered the same fate of Manchester United and Liverpool of going out of FA Cup in this season.
The home side scored the first goal in within 70 seconds of the match. Ricardo Fuller scored with a header but more credit should go to Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski for his inaction inside the box. In the first half, Stoke City was a better team. Just 3 minutes before half time, the Gunners were really luck to equalize from a shot of Denilson getting deflected by a Stoke player.
In the second half, Arsenal had some good spells and missed some opportunities too. Stoke players kept the pressure and got the two goals in the last few minutes. Fuller scored his second goal in the 78th minute and then Whitehead took the match by scoring the third goal for his club in 86th minute.
Arsenal was already out of Carling Cup and today, they suffered exit from FA Cup. Will it be another barren season for Arsene Wenger and his team?
