Brighton 2-3 Arsenal: Vote for Player-Ratings

Hewing close to the form established by Saturday's results, Brighton gave Arsenal almost more than they could handle, twice scoring to keep us on the edge of our seats, wondering if, like Chelsea and Tottenham, we would be victims of more-inspired play end up on the wrong side of a scoreline. Theo Walcott opened the scoring in the second minute, and Özil made it 0-2 in the 23rd minute, but Brighton's second-half fight saw them make it 1-2. When Rosický scored in the 58th, it did start to feel like we could relax a bit—until Baldock scored to make it 2-3. Thankfully, that's where it ends, allowing us to escape and get to the fifth round. We'll have a closer look at thinks later; for now, please take a minute to rate the players' efforts and comment on our Man of the Match in the poll below...
