Weekend Live! (24-26 Jan)

  • ARSENAL 0-0 COVENTRY
    Coventry just cannot get out of their own box, never mind half. More Arsenal pressure ends with a wild Oxlade-Chamberlain shot from distance. 
    1/24/2014 7:59:03 PM
  • ARSENAL 1-0 COVENTRY [goal] 
    Podolski finishes well after rounding the keeper. Just reward for Arsenal, who won the ball back midway inside Coventry's half and the German made no mistake.
    1/24/2014 8:00:45 PM
  • ARSENAL 1-0 COVENTRY [save]
    Wonderful effort from Baker, who twists onto his left foot and lets fly from 20 yards, forcing Fabianksi into a fingertip save. Good save from the Arsenal keeper, considering it was his first touch.
    1/24/2014 8:05:23 PM
  • ARSENAL 1-0 COVENTRY
    Coventry have to find a way to get up the pitch if they are to get back in this game. Arsenal continue to dominate possession - Bendtner's shot from the edge of the box deflects away for another corner. Coventry clear and Clarke does well to hold it up and give the League One side the chance to string a couple of passes together.
    1/24/2014 8:09:36 PM
  • ARSENAL 1-0 COVENTRY
    Gnabry is invited to cut inside onto his weaker left foot and shoot. He obliges and lashes one well wide.
    1/24/2014 8:10:17 PM
  • BRENTFORD 1-0 GILLINGHAM [goal]
    Jonathan Douglas (22) has given the hosts the lead at Griffin Park.

    1/24/2014 8:11:34 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY [goal]
    Ozil crosses, and Podolski heads home at the far post from Mertesacker's flick-on
    1/24/2014 8:13:06 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Hmm, well the game didn't need that second goal as a spectacle. Only Arsenal's complacency can prevent their progress now, surely.
    1/24/2014 8:14:17 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Good old Bendtner. He can always be relied upon to provide some entertainment - this time a fresh-air shot from 18 yards.
    1/24/2014 8:16:17 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Coventry's fans spend the 30th minute holding up signs asking 'Why?' with regards to their current relocation to Northampton. Arsenal's fans respond with applause in solidarity.
    1/24/2014 8:18:55 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Oxlade-Chamberlain almost finds Gibbs with an exquisite through ball with the outside of his right foot, but the ball just over-runs through to the keeper.
    1/24/2014 8:20:11 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY [arsenal]
    Gibbs crosses to the far post but Gnabry and Jenkinson get in each other's way and the former slices miles wide on the volley.
    1/24/2014 8:21:40 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Jenkinson drags a cross along the face of goal and there's no one on hand to tap into an empty net.
    1/24/2014 8:22:59 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Podolski misses a chance to grab a first-half hat-trick as he slices wide from 14 yards on the turn
    1/24/2014 8:24:32 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    First yellow of the night for Wilshere for a needless, late challenge.
    1/24/2014 8:25:13 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY [ouch]
    Wilshere is down after turning his ankle in a block tackle. He seemed to be pulling out of the challenge and his ankle was loose. He limps off, but should be able to continue...
    1/24/2014 8:27:27 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    ...and he's back.
    1/24/2014 8:27:42 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Some of the floodlights have blown, but it's still perfectly playable. The fans respond by holding up mobile phone lights to lend it a belated Christmas feel. 
    1/24/2014 8:31:28 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY [half-time]
    Time for a break. This tie feels over. Coventry have been chasing shadows - slightly dimmer ones since some of the floodlights went down - and Arsenal are winning at a canter.
    1/24/2014 8:35:21 PM

  • Podolski's two goals have Arsenal well in control 


    1/24/2014 8:40:04 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Second-half kicks off and Coventry win an immediate corner after forcing a mistake from Fabianksi, but it comes to nothing as the Arsenal keeper's handling is sound in the rain.
    1/24/2014 8:50:22 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY [save]
    Clarke breaks the offside trap - albeit he looked offside at first glance - and races into the box, but he overruns it a little and must shoot from the angle, allowing Fabianski to save at his near post.
    1/24/2014 8:53:26 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Coventry not allowing Arsenal quite so much time to move the ball around the pitch and as such are winning some second ball in midfield.
    1/24/2014 8:56:39 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Oxlade-Chamberlain tumbles in the box under pressure from Christie, but no dice, no penalty. 
    1/24/2014 8:59:09 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY [post]
    So close for Coventry, who are almost back in this tie as Moussa skips into the box, tees up Clarke and his first time shot thumps against the post.
    1/24/2014 9:00:25 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Arsenal break through Bendtner, Wilshere, Podolski and then Gibbs, but his low cross is cut out just before Podolski can pull the trigger.
    1/24/2014 9:02:29 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Ozil pulls it back to Wilshere, who squares for Bendtner, but his finish from 10 yards is poor, slicing his left-foot shot wide.
    1/24/2014 9:03:25 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Daniels stabs well over when well-placed, completely unmarked, after excellent work from Baker down the right. One of these chances has to go in soon.
    1/24/2014 9:05:08 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Play is stopped as a fan runs on the pitch to demonstrate against Coventry's plight.
    1/24/2014 9:07:32 PM
  • [bn] Manchester United have confirmed they have reached agreement with Chelsea for the transfer of Juan Mata for a club-record fee. More on Sky Sports News...
    1/24/2014 9:08:46 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Coventry break well and work the ball to Adams on the left. he cuts in but his shot is poor and well wide from distance.
    1/24/2014 9:10:45 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY [substitution]
    Cazorla and Zelalem enter the fray for Oxlade-Chamberlain and Bendtner. Zelalem becomes the first player to make his debut for Arsenal who was born after Arsene Wenger became the manager and the latest player to make me feel ancient.
    1/24/2014 9:15:21 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY [substitution]
    Coventry have been far better in the second-half, with skipper Baker superb in midfield, but they failed to score with their two good chances and Arsenal, who are preparing an entry for Giroud, are seeing this out comfortably at the moment. Here comes Giroud; he'll replace two-goal hero Podolski.
    1/24/2014 9:22:20 PM
  • ARSENAL 2-0 COVENTRY
    Christie barrels down the right, outpacing Ozil and crossing low into the box and Koscielny stretches to clear for a corner. A push in the box puts an end to that set-piece though.
    1/24/2014 9:26:12 PM
  • ARSENAL 3-0 COVENTRY [goal]
    Giroud drills home from 10 yards from Gibbs' pull-back. Harsh on Coventry, who have been vastly improved since the break, but that was clinical from Arsenal. The fifth-round beckons.
    1/24/2014 9:27:43 PM
  • ARSENAL 3-0 COVENTRY
    Half-chance for Cazorla on the half-volley from the angle, but he drills it into the ground and up over the bar.
    1/24/2014 9:30:54 PM
  • ARSENAL 3-0 COVENTRY [substitution]
    Moussa is replaced by Clarke for Coventry.
    1/24/2014 9:31:24 PM
  • ARSENAL 4-0 COVENTRY [goal]
    Well this really is harsh on Coventry as Cazorla finishes a lovely move by Arsenal after Murphy had made the initial save.
    1/24/2014 9:32:51 PM
  • ARSENAL 4-0 COVENTRY
    Clarke misses a glorious chance to grab a late consolation, side-footing weakly at Fabianski after Christie had skipped into the box and fed the striker, who was in acres of space and could have taken a touch.
    1/24/2014 9:35:46 PM
  • ARSENAL 4-0 COVENTRY [post]
    Ozil hits the outside of the post as Coventry, out on their feet, gift him the ball just outside their own area.
    1/24/2014 9:37:00 PM
  • ARSENAL 4-0 COVENTRY [full-time]
    That's it and Arsenal are the first team into the hat for the fifth round after a convincing win. Coventry were vastly improved after the break and at 2-0 had a couple of great chances to make a game of it, but two more late goals ensured the hosts cantered past their League One opponents.
    1/24/2014 9:38:47 PM
  • Still goalless at Forest, although that was an 8pm kick-off so 10 minutes or so for someone to make themselves a hero and avoid a replay
    1/24/2014 9:42:20 PM
  • Brentford are back at the top of League One after winning their 10th straight home game with a 2-1 victory over Gillingham at a very muddy Griffin Park. They're now unbeaten in 16. Reaction to that game is now on Sky Sports 1.
    1/24/2014 9:43:23 PM
  • All over at Nottingham Forest and no goals, so they and League One Preston will face off again in a replay.
    1/24/2014 9:53:02 PM
