Defending champion Arsenal eliminated, Veltman and Pröpper through FA Cup | Football

After a difficult month of November and December, Arsenal picked up this season around Christmas with a series of victories and especially a series of clean sheets. The last goal against was already on Boxing Day at the hands of Tammy Abraham.

Souhtampton was also unable to score against Bernd Leno, but the team received help from ‘The Gunners’ halfway through the first half. Gabriel clumsily worked a corner behind his own goalkeeper. Arsenal then waited a long time with real insistence and the sparse opportunities that arose in the final phase were not capitalized.

As a result, Arsenal is out of the cup tournament, in which it is usually so successful. It won no fewer than four of the past seven editions, including last season’s.

Veltman and Pröpper continue to convert

Joël Veltman and Davy Pröpper have reached the next round of the FA Cup with Brighton & Hove Albion. In-house it was somewhat difficult to deal with Blackpool: 2-1.

At halftime it was still 1-1 due to hits by Yves Bissouma and Gary Madine. After an hour of play, the game was finally decided by Steven Alzate. Both Dutchmen played the entire game.

The two other Premier League clubs that came into action at 4 p.m. are also through. West Ham United defeated Doncaster United (4-0) without any problems, while Sheffield United eliminated Plymouth Argyle 2-1.
