Arsenal are through to the semi-finals of the FA Cup, where they will face Chelsea, following their 2-1 win over Hull last night. Despite comprehensively dominating the game, Arsenal relied upon a controversial late goal to progress. William Gallas was clearly several yards offside before he scored, yet amazingly the linesman failed to spot it.

In the interview following the game, Hull boss Phil Brown claimed that Cesc Fabregas spat in the face of Hull assistant boss Brian Horton.

Fabregas claims he didn’t do such a thing, would never do such a thing, but for some reason, I’m not so sure…

“I categorically deny that I spat at anybody after the match,” said Fabregas this morning. “I have never done this in my whole career on the pitch, so why would I do it when I am not even playing?”

Hmm, really?
