FA Cup holders Arsenal were sensationally dumped out of the competition by Nottingham Forest on Sunday, joining Leeds United as big- name casualties on a day of shocks. Elsewhere, West Ham stayed alive with a goalless draw at Shrewsbury and Tottenham scored three goals in just eight second - half minutes to see off the challenge of League One side AFC Wimbledon. Championship side Forest revived memories of their glory years under Brian Clough , putting 13 -times winners Arsenal to the sword in an incident - packed win at the City Ground. Eric Lichaj opened the scoring for the home side but Per Mertesacker equalised just three minutes later . However , Forest continued to probe an inexperienced Arsenal line -up and got their reward just before half- time when Lichaj volleyed in spectacularly from the edge of the box . Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger , serving a touchline ban , was forced to watch powerless from the stands as Rob Holding conceded a penalty that Ben Brereton converted to stretch home side ’ s lead to 3-1 .

Danny Welbeck gave Arsenal hope with just over 10 minutes to go but Kieran Dowell netted from the penalty spot again to seal a 4- 2 win for the second -tier side over the Premier League visitors. In the early kick- off, on- loan forward Shawn McCoulsky headed in a dramatic 89th- minute winner for Welsh club Newport to seal a 2- 1 victory against 1972 Cup winners Leeds. Leeds had taken an early lead at Rodney Parade when Gaetano Berardi’ s deflected long- range shot found the net. But Newport , currently 11 th in League Two — the fourth tier of the English game — levelled 14 minutes from time when Leeds defender Conor Shaughnessy sliced into his own net. Infused with fresh belief in front of a passionate Welsh crowd, Newport pressed for a winner , and with a minute to go on -loan substitute McCoulsky rose highest at a corner to head in the decisive goal and send the stadium into raptures. Much- changed Leeds were then reduced to 10 men when substitute Samuel Saiz was immediately sent off over an off - the- ball incident . “ This is much better beating Championship teams like Leeds, ” said Newport manager Michael Flynn. “ I don ’t want to be winning relegation battles, I want to be winning FA Cup ties and climbing the table . ” It is another miserable result in the FA Cup for Leeds , who crashed out in the fourth round last year to non- league Sutton United. West Ham had goalkeeper Joe Hart to thank for keeping them in the Cup with a 0- 0 draw after an uninspired performance against Shrewsbury Town of the third tier.The England goalkeeper , returning to the club where he started his career, was handed a cap from the crowd as he battled against the slanting winter sun .

He made a fine save from Mat Sadler with about 10 minutes to go until the interval and repeated the trick against Alex Rodman to keep the score at 0- 0. The League One high- fliers continued to take the game to David Moyes’ s team in the second half but there were few clear - cut opportunities for either side . Shrewsbury ’s Jon Nolan had a golden chance to seal a dramatic victory in the dying minutes of normal time but blazed over and the two sides will meet again at the London Stadium. “ The players are a little bit deflated almost , ” said Shrewsbury Town manager Paul Hurst . “ But we have a replay to look forward to , ” he added. “ We know it will be tough . They will be at home , more comfortable in their own stadium. ” At Wembley, Harry Kane broke the deadlock against AFC Wimbledon with just under half an hour to go before Kane again and Jan Vertonghen made it 3- 0 to put the game beyond the reach of the visitors. On Saturday, League Two Coventry City sent Premier League side Stoke City crashing out, prompting the sacking of Mark Hughes.Related
