BR-UK StaffAnalyst IIIJanuary 24, 2014

Lukas Podolski scored twice in a 15-minute span to give Arsenal a 2-0 lead over FA Cup visitors Coventry City. 

Mesut Ozil set up the first with a neat pass to set Podolski free on the left side. Podolski dribbled around the Coventry goalkeeper and coolly finished in the 15th minute.

One nil to the Arsenal. It had been coming. Ozil to Podolski calm, emphatic finish. 15 mins

He doubled the lead in the 27th minute when Per Mertesacker nodded Serge Gnabry's corner back across the goal and Podolski met it on the far post with a powerful header. 


 Arsenal went on to win 4-0 with additional goals from Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla
