Emile Smith Rowe made the most of his red card reprieve as the Arsenal youngster sent the FA Cup holders into the fourth round with the decisive extra-time strike in Saturday's 2-0 victory against Newcastle.
Smith Rowe avoided being sent off when his foul on Sean Longstaff – initially ruled a dismissal – was changed to a booking after referee Chris Kavanagh consulted the pitchside monitor.
It would have been harsh on the promising 20-year-old midfielder if he had been given his marching orders. Smith Rowe celebrated the escape with a fine finish to open the scoring in a hard-fought third round tie at the Emirates Stadium.
Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang bagged Arsenal's second goal – just his sixth of a difficult season – in the final moments.
