Arsenal knocked out of the FA Cup

Arsenal have been knocked out of the FA Cup after being beaten 3-1 by Stoke.

It was a big upset for Arsene Wenger's side who were expected to win the Fourth Round clash.

Stoke striker Ricardo Fuller put them ahead before Denilson equalised for the Gunners just before half time.

But then a second for Fuller, followed by another from Dean Whitehead finished off Arsenal, and it could have been more but a fourth for Stoke was disallowed for handball.

Arsenal are the lastest Premier League club to crash out of the competition after Manchester United, Liverpool, Burnley, and Everton.
