FA Cup 2021: results, scores, Arsenal def Newcastle, video, Chorley def Derby

FA Cup holders Arsenal beat Newcastle 2-0 on as non-league Chorley knocked out coronavirus-ravaged Derby, West Brom suffered an embarrassing third-round exit against Blackpool, and Manchester United defeated Watford.

Arsenal, 14-time FA Cup winners, continued their recent revival with a fourth straight win in all competitions.

Magpies captain Jamaal Lascelles made his first appearance in six weeks after being hit hard by the coronavirus as both sides made multiple changes.

Andy Carroll had a golden chance to win a disappointing match in the dying seconds of normal time but his shot was well saved by Bernd Leno as the game went to extra-time.

Instead it was Emile Smith Rowe — who earlier had a red card overturned after a VAR check — who broke the deadlock, drilling the ball home in the 109th minute.
