FA Cup: Arsenal rallies past Liverpool

Arsenal has set up an FA Cup quarter-final meeting with Everton after overcoming Liverpool 2-1 in a feisty and gripping fifth-round match at the Emirates Stadium.

Liverpool had trounced Arsenal 5-1 at Anfield in the Premier League last weekend, but the London club took revenge through goals in each half by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski.

Steven Gerrard cut Arsenal's lead in half with a 59th-minute penalty after Podolski was adjudged to have tripped Luis Suarez.

The visitors felt they should have been awarded a second spot-kick moments later after Oxlade-Chamberlain appeared to foul Suarez, but their appeals were dismissed by referee Howard Webb.

Victory in a game marred with yellow cards means that Arsenal will host Everton who advanced to the elete eight with a win over 3-1 win over Swansea City. Next up for the Gunners is a big showdown onWednesday as they Bayern Munich in the Champions League last 16.
