Defending FA Cup champions Arsenal came into today as heavy favorites for yet another advancement into the semi-finals, but Watford had something to say about that. Sure, its cliche to call Adlene Guedioura's goal an exclamation point, but that's what it was. A little dot with a bullet of a line leading straight into top shelf. Beautiful.
The game was all but sealed, until Arsenal came back with some beautiful wizardry of their own—Danny Welbeck found himself on the other end of a spectacular backheel assist from Mesut Özil. (Özil, by the way, came into this match as undefeated in FA Cup games, since he joined the Gunners in 2013.)
But think of it as a twitch of rigor mortis in the 89th minute, because that coffin was nailed shut by Undertaker Guedioura. Lethal stuff.
