A fairly sleepy day of FA Cup action saw West Bromwich Albion and Bournemouth booted from the competition while fellow Premier League sides Everton and Watford moved on.
Bournemouth 0-2 Everton
Everton survived a scare when Joel Robles stopped Charlie Daniels‘ first half penalty kick to pick up a win on the road. Ross Barkley scored a deflected goal and Romelu Lukaku later cleaned up a loose ball near the six as the Toffees moved into the final eight with a shutout win at the Vitality Stadium.
Reading 3-1 West Bromwich Albion
Tony Pulis‘ Baggies are out of the FA Cup at the hands of Championship side Reading after they threw away a lead en route to an embarrassing ouster. Darren Fletcher scored in the 54th minute, but ex-WBA man Paul McShane tied it up shortly thereafter before Chelsea loanees Michael Hector and Lucas Piazon but away the Premier League unit.
Watford 1-0 Leeds United
Arsenal 0-0 Hull City — RECAP
Tigers’ goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic had a day to remember, even if both sides may’ve chosen a loss over a replay. Arsenal now has another date to add to its schedule, though it remains alive for the first FA Cup three-peat since 1886.
