An easy night for the Spanish keeper. Hardly had to make a save as his defenders kept the ball away from the Orient strikers. Was on hand to deny Dean Cox with a brilliant stop at the end of the 90 minutes.
Adopted a high position up the field on the left and was deployed more as a left winger than a full-back. Did well to stand up the cross for Bendtner's header.
Enjoyed an easy ride in the first-half but showed his defensive qualities with some great clearances from balls into the box in the second-half. Promising display from the youngster.
Another assured display from the French defender against League One opposition. He was strong in the air and contributed with a couple of timely interceptions when the O's threatened.
Like Gibbs, he was used more as a right winger than a defender. He was always there in attack and surged into the Orient half throughout the 90 minutes. Orient capitalised on this in the second-half and targeted the space in behind the Ivorian and had some real joy down Eboue's side.
Showed great determination down the right in the build up to the first goal and it was his cross which found the unmarked Marouane Chamakh. He buzzed about all over the pitch looking to create opportunities for the front man but far too often he gave the ball away. Came off after a slight knock early in the second-half.
Often criticised for the slow nature of his play but tonight he injected pace into Arsenal. He moved the ball at a sharp pace and shifted Arsenal from defence into attack very quickly.
The French international looked rusty in his first start since returning from a three match suspension, but as the game wore on he grew into the tie. His passing was neat and he showed everyone his talent as he dribbled through the Orient defence only to pull his shot wide. Replaced by Gael Clichy as he tired in the second-half.
The Gunners debutant started brightly and showed his quality with a couple of neat early touches. The 19-year-old showed his ability from set plays with a couple of dangerous balls into the box with his left foot. He played the full 90 minutes and while he did not set the world on fire this match should give him a lot of confidence.
A real passenger on the right wing in the opening 30 minutes but he sprung into life to head Arsenal's second past Jaime Jones with a great leap. It gave the big Dane a huge amount of confidence and he went on to bag the match ball with a clinical curling finish after cutting in from the left and a second-half penalty. Replaced by Wilshere after 65 minutes to a standing ovation.
Was on hand to tuck away Tomas Rosicky's cross in the seventh minute to give Arsenal the perfect start. But it did not spark the striker into form as he still looked short on confidence. He tried to link the play up between the attack and midfield but far too often his passes found Orient players.
The O's keeper will want to forget this night in a hurry as he spent most of it picking the ball out of the net, but to be fair to Jones he did not stand much chance with any of the strikes and was not given much cover by his team-mates.
The right midfielder could not get into the game and hardly had a kick all night. He spent most of the night facing his own goal as Arsenal dominated possession. Replaced by Matthew Spring after 65 minutes.
Not an easy night for the centre-half as Arsenal dominated from start to finish. Arsenal fizzed the ball about and worked the spaces in and around the Orient defence. This left Forbes and his colleagues exposed.
A testing night for the full-back and he probably could have done better in the third and fourth goals. He gave Nicklas Bendtner far too much space on the edge of the box for the third goal and in he was beaten far too easily by Kieran Gibbs in the build up to the penalty.
Former Arsenal youth captain received an early knock for his troubles but he soldiered on against his old club. He had a stinging shot blocked by one of his own players early on but it was in defence where he was tested. He was one of the stars of the first tie but on the bigger pitch at the Emirates, Arsenal exploited the large spaces in and around Chorley and his partner Forbes.
Had a decent evening at left-back and got forward to help Dean Cox on the overlap. He produced one or two testing balls into Arsenal's box. He was beaten in the air by Bendtner for the second but can be happy enough with his performance at the Emirates.
His bright orange boots dazzled and his performance wasn't too far off either. Leyton Orient exploited the space left by the marauding Emmanuel Eboue and on a couple of occasions he got behind the Arsenal back four and but for a better final ball and some good defending Orient could have got on the scoresheet. Almost ended the night for Orient on a high as he broke the shackles of Arsenal's defence but Manuel Almunia denied him.
Energetic display from the Leyton Orient captain. He led by example in the middle of the park crunching into tackles and giving absolutely everything for the cause.
Struggled in the first-half but gained more control in the second as he showed a good range to his passing as the O's threatened in behind the Arsenal defence.
The experienced striker worked hard for his side's cause but he could not get any change out of Sebastien Squillaci or youngster Ignasi Miquel. Replaced by Jonathan Tehoue after 65 minutes.
Missed a great early chance for Orient from Charlie Daniels' cross but that was the only sniff of goal either he or his strike partner Scott McGleish had as they lacked service and support. It was his clumsy challenge on Kieran Gibbs which led to the penalty.
- W. Szczęsny
- J. Djourou
Got on the score sheet with a crisp left-foot finish from just inside the box for only hi second Arsenal goal. It is only the second time Clichy has scored in his career.
- B. Sagna
Given 25 minutes to blow away the cobwebs following his disappointment in the Carling Cup final. He was neat and tidy with the ball at his feet and tested Orient with his direct running.
Given a run out after Tomas Rosicky came off with a knock. Important minutes on the field for the Frenchman as he looks to regain his early season form. Went on one trademark run to work a shooting opportunity but his shot sailed over the bar.
- A. Arshavin
- L. Butcher
- E. Omozusi
- M. Cestor
Brought on in place of the disappointing Jason Crowe but he struggled as Arsenal run the midfield.
Given ten minutes but could not get Orient the goal they so craved at the Emirates.
- A. Chambers
The super-sub from the first game did not make the same impact as in the first tie but he will still be remembered by Orient fans who got his side a replay.
