FA Cup holders Arsenal were left with an unwanted replay after a goalless draw

against Hull City in their fifth-round clash at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Arsenal, bidding to become the first side since the 19th Century to win the FA Cup

three years in a row, dominated the game but could not beat Hull goalkeeper Eldin

Jakupovic, who made several fine saves.

With Arsenal pushing for the Premier League title and at home to Spanish giants

Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday, the prospect of

another game was far from ideal.

Meanwhile Hull manager Steve Bruce praised Jakupovic, one of 10 changes he made

to his starting side, by saying: “He’s come in and made some great saves.”

In Saturday’s other fifth-round ties, Premier League Watford beat Championship side

Leeds United 1-0 thanks to Scott Wooton’s 53rd-minute own-goal.

Meanwhile in Stamford Bridge The blues destroyed Manchester City,Although this may have been as a

result of Manuel Pellegrini’s decision not to use any first team player with the exception of Nigerian

Starlet – Kelechi Iheanacho , Kolarov ,And Pablo Zabaleta. The Team wasn’t led with any Guidance

whatsoever From the acting captain Aleksandar Kolarov. While in Chelsea’s Half Diego Costa opened up

the scoring after which Pedro and Willian Ran Their Opponents Defense ragged with the Brazilian

grabbing a goal and the Spaniard hitting the woodwork.

Eden Hazard got his first goal for Chelsea at home Even Cahill and traore got on the scoresheet with

the latter hammering home a volley from outside the six-yard box and Traore scoring a sublime header

[still not sure if it was deliberate].
