Colin Kazim-Richards scored the only goal as Arsenal were dumped out of the FA Cup

The Gunners face Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday night and manager Arsene Wenger had made several changes, with Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla all starting on the bench.

Gervinho missed a great chance at the end of the first half which proved costly as Colin Kazim-Richards' scrappy effort after 72 minutes was enough to inflict Arsenal's first home FA Cup defeat since their move to the Emirates Stadium.
