FA Cup results: Manchester City 2-0 Chelsea, Arsenal make it past Liverpool

Manchester City put in solid performance to beat Chelsea 2-0 and reach the last eight of the FA Cup. Arsenal made it past Liverpool amid several controversial decisions from Howard Webb.

Manuel Pellegrini outplayed Jose Mourinho in FA Cup after Chelsea had beaten the Citizens in Premier League two weeks earlier. The Manchester outfit limited Chelsea to very few chances with Yaya Toure dominating the midfield yet another time. Stevan Jovetic opened the scoring 16 minutes into the game and Samir Nasri who had just recovered from injury, doubled the scoring on 67 minutes. Manchester City are still on the way for a quadruple in current season as they face Barcelona on Tuesday night in their first ever knockout stage in Champions League.

Arsenal beat Liverpool and revenged for the 5-1 drubbing at Anfield last week. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski put the Gunners in front before Steven Gerrard converted a penalty. Arsenal got away with a clear penalty chance as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain brought down Luis Suarez in the box just yards away from Howard Webb, but the referee surprisingly waved away the foul. Minutes later he decided not to send off Steven Gerrard despite an obvious foul worth a second yellow card. In the end these controverisl scenes saw Arsene Wenger retain his hopes for the first trophy in eight years.

Everton beat Swansea City at Goodison Park as Roberto Martinez looks for a second straight FA Cup title with two different teams. Lacina Traore scored his first goal for The Toffees before Steven Naismith and Leighton Baines added to the victory. Jonathan De Guzman pulled one back for the Welsh side.

A stunner from Craig Gardner proved enough for Sunderland to knock Southampton out of the Cup as Gus Poyet has had brilliant tenure with The Black Cats keeping them in both Cup competitions and reviving their chances of Premier League survival.

Wigan Athletic beat Cardiff City, Sheffield United knocked out Nottingham Forest. The clash between Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton Athletic was postponed.
