Arsenal vs Sunderland live

    67 mins: Ramsey is given an immediate chance to stretch his legs. The Welshman races up the left wing and finds Gibbs, who sprays a low ball across the box into the old corridor of uncertainty.

    Giroud makes a run across the near post but the ball is just out of his reach and Pickford collects.

    Meanwhile, Standard Sport reporter James Benge is eating a generous portion of Joel Campbell shaped humble pie...

    CHANCE! Gibbs picks out Walcott with a measured cross but the forward's shot is too close to Pickford.

    That was almost identical to Campbell's goal but the Englishman couldn't provide the finish.

    GOAL! Ramsey puts Arsenal in front!

    Bellerin's pace is enough to get the Spaniard away from Graham and the full-back fizzes a ball across the face of goal.

    Ramsey is in the right place at the right time and produces a neat finish from close range to put the hosts in charge.

    GOAL! Giroud pokes home from close range and that should be that!

    Bellerin is on fire and grabs his second assist of the game. A tiring Graham hasn't been able to cope with the Spaniard and he breaks into the box before picking Giroud out at the back post.

    The Frenchman taps home courtesy of the simplest of finishes.

    78 mins: Giroud has a decent shout for a penalty but Sunderland race up the other end and only a superb save from Cech denies Graham to keep Arsenal two goals in front.

    Arsenal certainly made hard work of that, but they got there in the end.

    An early strike from Lens had Sunderland dreaming of an upset but strikes from Campbell, Ramsey and Giroud put the game to bed.

    Arsenal march into the fourth round and their quest for a third consecutive FA Cup triumph is on!

    Danny Mills on BBC Final Score: "Arsenal scored some fantastic goals throughout the game and remarkably Arsene Wenger has still never gone out in the third round.

    "He's never had that shock or giant-killing and they've had some tough draws.

    "Arsenal just got better and better as the game went on and scored great footballing goals with plenty of one-twos and clinical finishes."
