Arsenal beat Spurs to set up fourth round clash with Coventry

Arsenal booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup after comfortably beating North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening.

Goals from Santi Cazorla and Tomas Rosicky either side of half time gave the Gunners a deserved win, and set up a fourth round clash with League One side Coventry City.

One downside for manager Arsene Wenger was that he lost Theo Walcott to a knee injury late on in the game after he had already made all three substitutions.

The England international, who looks set to miss up to four weeks, joins an already lengthy injury list which boasts no fewer than six attacking players.

Whilst being stretchered off, Walcott made a gesture to the away fans signalling the score-line, but the Express report that it is unlikely that he will face any punishment from the Football Association.

Meanwhile, the club have been linked for a move for Reading goalkeeper Alex McCarthy, according to the Mirror.

Arsene Wenger is once again keen on bringing in back-up for current number one Wojciech Sczcesny, following reports that fellow Poland international Lukas Fabianski could be set for a move to Bundesliga side Schalke.
