What a way to finish. We've rattled through 25 matches, seeing 59 goals in the process. And we're not done yet...

Oooof!! Pick them out. Two of the day's great goals were scored on Yorkshire soil - Mustapha Carayol's thunderbolt on his Leeds United debut and Barry Bannan's 20-yarder which pinged off the underside of the bar.

Lawro reckons Carayol's strike is better, Trevor Sinclair goes for Bannan. You?

"A good day to manage Dagenham"

Dagenham's John Still, nine days into his third spell as manager: "I’ve not been back too long but the work we’ve been doing has helped us compete.

"The game plan was good and everyone has worked well. It’s a good day to be a manager of this club.

"We’ve had a disappointing first half of the season but everyone has worked so hard, including the former manager Wayne Burnett, who’s my mate. This performance was for him."

The Goodison Cat

Roberto Martinez was asked if the cat could be a good omen: "Hopefully. I thought he had great style and movement."

Everton manager Roberto Martinez: "It was very satisfying. There’s no such thing as easy tie and you know these games are testing you have to concentrate. Dagenham showed that, they kept their shape well and it's easy to get exposed.

"I was pleased with the attacking threat but you have to give them credit for the way they defended. I was impressed with the physical levels of Dagenham.

"It was good to see Phil Jagielka get 90 minutes, and Bryan Ovidedo get 90 minutes, and Steven Pienaar was able to feel like a footballer again."

Maybe he's mates with the Anfield Cat, who caused similar chaos down the road in 2012.

Look who's been dusted off and wheeled out for an FA Cup party - it's Steven Pienaar!

The midfielder hasn't been seen in an Everton shirt for 274 days - his last appearance coming in April 2015. It's also the 33-year-old's first start since December 2014. 

Everton XI: Robles, Galloway, Jagielka, Funes Mori, Oviedo, Besic, Gibson, Pienaar, Lennon, Mirallas, Kone.

Player reaction

Hull City 1-0 Brighton

Robert Snodgrass bagged the winner for Hull and got a bottle of bubbly to boot. That's taste even sweeter after only recently returning from a long-term knee injury.

Great team performance from us @HullCity and happy we into the next round, delighted to score and get MOM ⚽️👍

Boring, boring Brighton

Hull City 1-0 Brighton

Think Manchester United's style of football is boring? Well, Brighton fans are also suffering at the moment.

Their side's 1-0 loss at Hull means Chris Hughton's side, who have dropped from first to fourth in the Championship in the last month, have now failed to score in their last five games.

Indeed, they took 82 minutes to have an attempt at goal at the KC Stadium - when Sam Baldock shot wide. Yet they nearly snatched a replay but Andrew Crofts smashed an effort against the crossbar in the third minute of injury time.

Afobe is Cherry-picked

Birmingham 1-2 Bournemouth

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe revealed after their game that they have agreed a fee of about £10m with Wolves for striker Benik Afobe.

Howe: "A deal has been agreed, there are still hurdles for us to overcome but we hope he'll sign in time for Tuesday night." #afcb

"He'll bring strength, power and hopefully goals. We'll be excited to see him for #afcb if the deal gets completed."

Just for some historical inflation context, Arsenal bought World Cup winner Thierry Henry from Juventus for about the same price 17 years ago.....

I'll tell you who Wolves could have done with...Benik Afobe. But their star striker was busy elsewhere...

I'll tell you one place where 'cup fever' is rarer than the bubonic plague...Newcastle. The Magpies have not won an FA Cup match since 2012, failing to progress past the third round for the fourth successive season.

How do you fix that? By naming their strongest possible team...

"We'll forget this game as of now"

Norwich 0-3 Man City

Norwich boss Alex Neil: "In the first half, we didn't retain ball well enough and good teams will punish you. 

"We played better in the second half but the damage had already been done. 

"You can give Sergio Aguero credit but we should have defended better. 

"We will forget this game as of now. Our bread and butter is the league."

'A beautiful goal'

Norwich 0-3 Man City

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini: "It was a very good performance. From the beginning we were very aggressive.

"I said last week the way Sergio Aguero started playing and the more minutes he plays he always improves his performance. He scored a beautiful goal.

"It's very important to be focused game-by-game. 

"One of the merits of this squad is to be involved in all the competitions with the injuries that we have had."

Manchester City right-back Pablo Zabaleta was back against Norwich for his first game since 28 October following a knee injury. And, as you can imagine, he was pretty pleased!

Happy to be back after a long period without playing. Great team performance to go trough to the next round. Thanks for your support!#FAcup

Norwich 0-3 Man City

Can Norwich afford to make seven changes? Canaries boss Alex Neil brought in keeper John Ruddy to replace Declan Rudd as part of his wholesale squad juggling.

Norwich XI: Ruddy, Bennett, Martin, Bassong, Wisdom, Dorrans, Mulumbu, Olsson, Howson, Odjidja, Jerome.  

Manchester City also make seven changes - but, unfortunately for Norwich, the name Sergio Aguero still appears...

Man City XI: Caballero, Zabaleta, Demichelis, Otamendi, Kolarov, Fernando, Delph, Navas, Sterling, Iheanacho, Aguero.

Pickford's proud moment

Arsenal 3-1 Sunderland

Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford made his debut for Sunderland today and while he couldn't keep Arsenal at bay, it was still a proud day for the 21-year-old.

The dream has finally come true !! Making my debut for @SunderlandAFC is the proudest moment for me and my family! Hard work pays off #safc

After their win, Arsenal striker Theo Walcott invited a young fan onto the pitch to recreate the celebration he sometimes shares with Per Mertesacker.

Walcott duly flattened the supporter. That is what happens when you don't make allowances for the other fella not being a six foot six central defender.

Red-hot Campbell

Joel Campbell was bang on the money to put Arsenal in control at the Emirates.

Joel still has some way to go to overtake Sol, or even Kevin, to become Arsenal's best ever Campbell.

But today's performance won't have harmed his case.

One goal, four shots and five key passes - none of which were bettered by any of his team-mates - added up to a decent afternoon's work.

This is how he got busy in the final third - red are shots off target, green are shots on target and yellow are key passes leading to a chance.

Arsenal's one-man assist farm Mesut Ozil was in the stands today.

And it looks like he brought the rug from the back of the car to keep his expensive knees warm in the swanky seats.

Very wise.
