It's the Emirates, Lads !

It's the Emirates, Lads !

The majority of Clarets fans got their wish tonight after the Gunners defeated the Bluebirds 4-0 at the Emirates in their FA Cup 4th Round replay.

A brace of goals by Eduardo almost a year after breaking his leg contributed to the Gunners comprehensive win.

Eduardo opened the scoring after heading in Carlos Vela's cross on 20 minutes

Nicklas Bendtner doubled the lead from a Samir Nasri corner 14 minutes later.

Arsenal led 2-0 at half-time

In the second half on the hour mark, Eduardo was brought down by Gavin Rae in the area and the Croatian took the penalty himself to get the second of his brace.

Robin Van Persie got the fourth goal in the final minute of the match.

Burnley now face a fifth round match in London with Arsenal due to play the Clarets at the Emirates on either Saturday 7th March or Sunday 8th March.

This is a juicy and lucrative tie for the Clarets and one that will give Burnley fans the chance to visit a new stadium for the first time.

Burnley have already defeated the Young Gunners this season at Turf Moor in the Carling Cup but this FA Cup game will be a different kettle of fish with Arsenal likely to field a full-strength side. It may look an awesome task to progress further in the competition now but with scalps of Premier League sides now littering the trophy room at Turf Moor, there is still all to play for and I am sure the Clarets will do us all proud no matter what the final result.

The winners of the match will play either Premier League side, Hull City or Championship rivals, Sheffield United in the FA Cup Quarter Final depending on which of these teams can win their 5th round replay at the KC Stadium on the Thursday night of February 26th Febraury.

This will be a lot trickier than the Carling Cup but, who knows, perhaps we can do it again ? Bet we'll take a few thousand Clarets to North London.

I hope you enjoy the trip. Though lets not throw mobiles and shoes at the Arsenal goalkeeper like the Cardiff fans. Our pitch is the best in the world and stuff like that just ruins it! ;)

2 teams who know how to play football and 2 good sets of fans. Unlike those pikey sheep botherers that disgraced themselevs and their crummy little club today. I didn't know a cardiff fan could afford to throw away his only pair of shoes?

You guys' wish granted eh? Hehe how much of our great performance was down to the fact that we got a few more Burnley fans cheering on us is unknown, hope you enjoyed watching the game. Our kids will be motivated to take revenge against your boys and hope you'll enjoy that one too! :)

Looking forward to this one big time,Gooners and thanks for the compliments. Should be a cracker! We have certanly caught the eye this season with Premier League sides taking note and falling by the wayside. Quite amazing really we hadn't played the Arsenal since 1975/76 until about a year ago and this will now be our third game in about 12 months. Hoping this will be a regular fixture in the Premier League from next season! [Edited by turfmanphil]

We didn't do ourselves justice and you guys were impressive last time. But it'll be different - we're taking the Cup quite seriously and getting some injured players back now. Should give it a better go this time. Enjoy the game! :>
