Saka, Nketiah fire as Arsenal book Pompey trip with win over Bournemouth

Arsenal have advanced to the FA Cup fifth-round with a 2-1 win over Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium on Monday.

The Gunners utterly dominated the opening stanza, scoring both of their goals through youngsters Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah.

Defender Skhodran Mustafi was withdrawn from the game on a stretcher with an apparent ankle injury during the second-half.

Eddie Howe's side retained a slim piece of hope when Sam Surridge equalised four minutes into an eight-minute stoppage time period.

But the visitors did enough to hold on and will now face Portsmouth in the fifth-round.
