Arsenal fans react on Twitter to the Ox's performance: 'A magician' and a 'lucky boy'

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain played a huge part in Arsenal's FA Cup fifth-round victory over Liverpool on Sunday, but what did the fans think?

This morning, Arsenal fans will be purring about the performance of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, while Liverpool fans will be wondering how his challenge on Luis Suarez did not result in a penalty.

So let's deal with the elephant in the room first and go from there: Suarez did go down theatrically, but the Arsenal winger caught him and it should have been a spot-kick.  

Yet Gunners' fans - or at least most of them - were not thinking about that when they took to Twitter to praise the young man's performance on Sunday.

Oxlade-Chamberlain scored the first, calmly netting when the ball fell to him in a crowded area, and set up the second, collecting a one-two and laying the ball perfectly for Lukas Podolski to knock home.

The 20-year-old also had an 87% pass-completion rate and made 23 passes in total.  He also made two interceptions in a defensive capacity.

The Gunners now move on to a quarter-final against Everton, while Liverpool can bemoan their bad luck and look ahead to a  league campaign that still has a chance of ending in triumph.
