Moses who wore the captain armband following the substitution of Cesar Azpilicueta netted emphatically by sending Petr Cech the wrong way during the shoot out.

However it was Iwobi who has the last laugh as the 22 year old dispatched with conviction for Arsenal in sudden death to help the Gunners seal the win after Rueben Loftus-Cheek effort was saved by Cech.
