Arsenal eased into the semi-finals of the FA Cup with an initially tight, ultimately rather overwhelming defeat of a spirited Lincoln City team on a muggy, decelerating afternoon. Goals from Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud either side of half-time killed a tie that had looked quite well matched, with the last half-hour reduced to a possession exercise for the home team and a dogged rearguard for the men from the National League.
