16 February 2014, 10:44Sean Parker

Live commentary:
FULL TIME: Arsenal 2-1 Liverpool

18:52 90th min - Arsenal look to have done enough here, as they are giving a free kick deep into stoppage time, Fabianski fires it up field. 

18:48 88th min - Three minutes of added time will be announced shortly, but Liverpool need to push things along if they are too force a replay, and just with that the away side wins a free kick, Gerrard, once again steps up. 

18:44 84th min -  Just over five minutes of normal time to go , and Liverpool are still trying to find that elusive equaliser. Gerrard with the free-kick. Daniel Agger headed towards goal, somehow it misses the net. 

18:34 74th min - Gerrard slides into Oxlade-Chamberlain and with the crowd baying for the Liverpool captain to be sent off, Webb gives Gerrard another life-line and a word (stern) in his ear. With that Oxlade-Chamberlain is off. 

18:31 71st min - Santi Cazorla, having just replaced Podolski a few minutes earlier skies one over  Jones' goal after the ball fell to him perfectly. 

18:28 68th min - Suarez is in the thick of the action again, this time shooting hard towards Fabianski. 

18:25 65th min - 25 minutes to go and the match has really opened up, tackles flying in and tempers flaring. This is Cup football!!

18:23 64th min Suarez is clearly clattered into by Oxlade-Chamberlain, but Webb doesn't give what should be a clear penalty!

18:19 60th min - GOAL!!!! Gerrard scores from the penalty spot! Arsenal 2-1 Liverpool

18:18 59th min - Podolski hacks down Suarez and Howard Webb points to the spot. 

18:14 55th min - Ozil has a swipe from the left, and Brad Jones pulls off a strong handed stop to to deny the German. 

18:13 54th min - Liverpool have their work cut-out now, they need to score two goals or they'll be out of the FA Cup. 

18:07 48th min - Podolski accepts a glorious pass from Ozil, and the German Podolski makes it 2-0 to the home side.

18:06 GOAL!!!! Arsenal 2-0 Liverpool . Lukas Podolski doubles the tally. 

18:04 45th min - Liverpool kick-off the second half, playing from left to right. They have 45 minutes to claw back a one-goal deficit. Suarez almost drew his team level, but Fabianski saves with his foot to deny the Uruguayan. 

HALF-TIME: Arsenal 1-0 Liverpool

17:48 45th min - One minute of added time, and Sterling and Carl Jenkinson have a tussle on the touchline. 

17:44 42nd min -Gerrard gets booked after a cynical challenge on Oxlade-Chamberlain. 

17:40 38th min - We haven't really seen Suarez in the first half, the game has been battled out in the midfield, with set-plays coming into effect. But with the exception of Sterling's run, we haven't seen flowing football yet. 

17:35 33rd min - Sterling makes his way to Arsenal's go, his pace is electric but the young English winger gets his heels clipped, and the shot in the end is weak. But he showed a glimpse of how fast with the ball at his feet he can be. 

17:33 31st min - Despite the home side scoring, both teams are moving the ball around nicely. 

17:32 30th min - Arsenal with the corner, taken by Arteta, but Brad Jones collects easily. 

17:26 24th min - Liverpool are playing well, with Gerrard the main architect, but the Arsenal defence, led by Koscielny has been excellent so far. 

17:23 21st min - Liverpool will rue those two opportunities that Sturridge had in the opening five minutes. 

17:19 17th min - The ball was bundled in the box, it fell to Oxlade-Chamberlain , who cooly slotted home from just outside the six-yard box. 

17:18 16th min - GOAL!!!! Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scores for Arsenal!! 

17:09 7th min - Liverpool have made a promising start, putting Arsenal firmly on the back foot. 

17:08 6th min - Sturridge gets played through via a stunning chipped-pass from Suarez, but he takes it onto his right foot , and subsequently can't pull off a powerful enough shot. 

17:05 3rd min - Sturridge gets played in by Steven Gerrard , but the striker shoots with his right foot and Fabianski saves well. 

17:03 1st min - Arsenal kick us off at the Emirates today, the home side in their usual red tops and white shorts, while Liverpool are in white tops and black shorts.

Recent games:

Liverpool trounced the Gunners 5-1 at Anfield just over a week ago in the Premier League. Arsene Wenger's side then drew last week to rivals Manchester United. So the Gunners go into this evenings match with a lot riding on today's fixture.


These two juggernauts of English football have met five times in the FA Cup, the last time was in 2007, when the Londoners bundled Liverpool out of the 3rd round courtesy of two goals by Tomas Rosicky and a strike from legend, Thierry Henry.

Liverpool's only victory in the five matches, came in 2001, at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. Two brilliant goals from Michael  Owen handed the Liverpool the FA Cup trophy.
