FAC: Arsenal 3-0 Burnley

BY foxsports • March 8, 2009

Arsenal cruised into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup with a comfortable 3-0 win over Championship side Burnley at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Fine goals from Mexican teenager Carlos Vela and Eduardo either side of half-time and Emmanuel Eboue's late strike set the Gunners up for a home tie against Hull in a fortnight's time and moved them a step closer to Wembley.

The victory - achieved with several of the first-team regulars rested and which marked a welcome return for England winger Theo Walcott after four months out because of a shoulder problem - extended Arsenal's unbeaten run to 17 games in all competitions and proved just the right tonic ahead of next week's crucial Champions League trip to Roma.
