Oxlade-Chamberlain, Morgan and more: Twitter reacts as Arsenal down Brighton

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Piers Morgan both tweet their thoughts as Arsenal reach the FA Cup fifth round

Arsenal booked their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup thanks to a 3-2 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday.

Theo Walcott gave Arsenal the lead within 60 seconds, before Mesut Ozil slotted in to make it 2-0 in the 24th minute.

Tomas Rosicky volleyed home a brilliant third after Chris O’Grady had reduced the deficit, before Sam Baldock’s 75th-minute effort set up an exciting finale.

However, the holders held on to book their place in the fifth round of the tournament.

Sunday’s late kick-off inevitably prompted plenty of activity on Twitter – and here are some of our favourite updates.
