FAC: Arsenal 3-1 Plymouth Argyle

BY foxsports • January 3, 2009

Stand-in skipper Robin van Persie scored twice as Arsenal moved into the FA Cup fourth round with a 3-1 win over Plymouth at Emirates Stadium.

The Dutchman struck at the start and the end of the second half to secure safe passage into Monday's draw after Argyle captain Karl Duguid had grabbed a lifeline for the West Country side and their superb 9,000-strong support.
