Arsenal players celebrate a goal against Brighton

Hewing close to the form established by Saturday's results, Brighton gave Arsenal almost more than they could handle, twice scoring to keep us on the edge of our seats, wondering if, like Chelsea and Tottenham, we would be victims of more inspired play end up on the wrong side of a scoreline.

Theo Walcott opened the scoring in the second minute, and Mesut Özil made it 0-2 in the 23rd minute, but Brighton's second-half fight saw them make it 1-2. When Tomas Rosický scored in the 58th, it did start to feel like we could relax a bit – until Sam Baldock scored to make it 2-3. Thankfully, that's where it ends, allowing us to escape and get to the fifth round.

We'll have a closer look at thinks later; for now, please take a minute to rate the players' efforts and comment on our Man of the Match in the poll below:

Jon Shay has been an Arsenal fan since he as about seven years old, discovering the club on late-night cable tv. Growing up in football-challenged United States meant that he couldn't actually see an Arsenal match with his own eyes until 2008, but he's followed the club closely through thick and thin before deciding to start writing in early 2013.
