Per Mertesacker nodded home from an Alexis Sanchez corner to seize a lead in the 20th minute, and Alexis himself added a second to put the game to bed but not until the 80th minute. It was a comfortable win absent any of the drama of last season's final when Hull raced out to an early 2-0 lead of their own only to succumb.

This time through, Steve Bruce's men fought hard but rarely if ever threatened, and we've secured passage to the fourth round. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a decent clean-sheeted win that should soothe some unsettled nerves if not lay to rest any pertinent questions.

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.
