As soon as Arsenal were able to dispatch of Newcastle United in the third round of the FA Cup, fans were already adjusting to the news that the draw for the fourth round – as well as the fifth round – had been made. The Gunners would’ve been hoping for a set of pretty easy draws to get them through to the quarter-final stage as they continue to try and defend their FA Cup title, but we’re not so sure that’s what they wound up with.
It’s time for yet another trip down memory lane, and in this instance, we’re going seven years into the past in order to have a look at a game that some may think isn’t all that important. The encounter was a League Cup tie against Shrewsbury Town, and as you can imagine, a lot of fans didn’t really care about the game at the time. Alas, when Shrewsbury took the lead at the Emirates in the first half, people began to sit up and take notice.
