Arsenal squared off with Leyton Orient this evening at the Emirates in FA Cup action and were involved in an absolute nail-biter, until Marouane Chamakh finally scored in the 7th minute. Nicklas Bendtner then fired a hat-trick and scientist will now see if anything exists beyond infinite as they wait to measure the Danish striker's ego after the match. League One side Leyton Orient did well to force a replay by way of Jonathan Tehoue's 89th minute equalising goal at Brisbane Road a few weeks back, however, the east London club was overwhelmed at Arsenal's ground tonight. The Gooners 5-0 win sets up a quarter-final clash with Manchester United on March 12 at Old Trafford. The two sides are also the favorites for the Barclays Premier League title, as the Reds currently have a four point lead on Arsenal, but the north London side have a game on hand. 

In other recent FA Cup action, Manchester City defeated Aston Villa 3-0 this evening and they will do battle with Reading after the Championship side defeated Everton 0-1 at Goodison Park on Tuesday evening. Here is the full FA Cup quarter-final draw:

* Manchester United vs Arsenal

* Manchester City vs Reading

* Stoke City vs West Ham United
