Attendance: 26,402

Referee:

Sunderland upset Arsenal in thier only chance of recieving a trophy this season. Richardson will grab the headlines for his goal, but Sunderland's work-rate was magnificent as they hassled and harried while probing in the right areas at the other end.

hierry Henry netted a late winner in the Barclays Premier League encounter a week previously, but this day belonged to Sunderland as they moved into the last eight. The draw for the quarter finals will proceed later today and will be posted later tonight, promptly after the draw.
