Everton fans react on Twitter to FA Cup loss to Arsenal - "Crumbling too much in the big games!"

Everton Goodison 3

Everton's FA Cup journey ended with a harsh 4-1 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Roberto Martinez's side were hoping to see off the Gunners and make it to the semi-finals of the FA Cup, and were well in the game after Romelu Lukaku cancelled out Mesut Ozils' early strike, but a second half capitulation gave Arsene Wenger's men a somewhat flattering win.

A penalty from former Toffees hero Mikel Arteta put Arsenal back in front with just 20 minutes to play, before a quickfire double from Frenchman Olivier Giroud sealed Arsenal's passage to Wembley, just one game away from the FA Cup final.

It means another trophy-less season for Everton, and Toffees fans were evidently disappointed that their side once again failed to beat one of the so-called 'bigger' teams, and a number of people came under criticism from fans, including Gareth Barry, Ross Barkley and manager Martinez, but many fans were also buoyant about their chances of getting into Europe this season.
