LONDON -- A rejuvenated Mesut Ozil helped Arsenal secure a place in the FA Cup semifinals for the first time since 2009 while Manchester United eased past West Bromwich 3-0 to keep alive its faint top-four hopes in the Premier League on Saturday. Air Max Tn Pas Cher Chine . Arsenal beat Everton 4-1 at Emirates Stadium to become the first team through to the last four, with substitute Olivier Giroud scoring two of the hosts three goals in the final 22 minutes. Yet it was the display of Ozil that stood out, the Germany playmaker responding to criticism of his lacklustre recent performances by scoring the opening goal in the seventh minute, setting up Girouds second and working tirelessly for the team. "Physically he looked regenerated, with more power in his runs," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said, "and, as well, what I liked is he did a lot of dirty work for a player like him." The other quarter-final matches are on Sunday. Phil Jones, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck scored for United at The Hawthorns to move the beleaguered champions up to sixth, provisionally nine points behind fourth-place Manchester City. It will need an almost-flawless run-in for United to finish in the Champions League positions but the result at least will boost confidence that dropped to a season low after losing 2-0 at Olympiakos in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 match 11 days ago. "We were hurt after losing to Olympiakos and we wanted to come and show everyone were a good team," Rooney said. "We played with great energy and we always looked a threat." City, which plays defending champion Wigan in the FA Cup on Sunday in a repeat of the 2013 final, has two games in hand over United in the league. Jones headed United in front in the 34th minute from Robin van Persies free kick and an unmarked Rooney nodded in Rafaels cross in the 65th to virtually secure three points. Welbeck added a third in the 82nd as United climbed above Everton on goal difference. In one of four other Premier League games later, Chelsea can extend its lead to seven points by beating Tottenham. Arsenal has dropped off the pace in the Premier League title race by winning just one of its last four matches, and is unlikely to progress beyond the last 16 of the Champions League after a 2-0 home defeat to Bayern Munich in their first leg. That means the FA Cup has become a priority for the Gunners, who are without a trophy since 2005, and it took the 61st-minute introduction of Giroud when the score was 1-1 to turn a tight contest against Everton. The France striker, on for inexperienced and ineffective compatriot Yaya Sanogo, gave Arsenal more presence up front to allow the teams attacking midfielders to shine. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was tripped by Gareth Barry for a penalty, which Mikel Arteta needed to convert twice - the first was ruled out for encroachment by Giroud, to give Arsenal a 68th-minute lead. Giroud sidefooted home Bacary Sagnas cross from close range in the 83rd and, after another flowing move, Ozil supplied a centre for Giroud to apply another simple finish two minutes later. Ozil has been criticized by English media in recent weeks while some Germany supporters directed their ire at the playmaker during the midweek friendly win over Chile. But he was impressive here, slotting home neatly from Santi Cazorlas pass to put Arsenal in front, only for Romelu Lukaku to equalize in the 32nd. Everton youngster Ross Barkley squandered a great chance for the visitors in the 54th minute and it was all Arsenal after Girouds introduction. "It was important for us to win today," Wenger said, "on the psychological front." Vapormax Pas Cher Chine .

The Austrian ski federation said Morgenstern was "conscious and well responsive" and his condition would be monitored in the intensive care unit of a Salzburg hospital for the next 72 hours. The federation said it was "way too early" to judge Morgensterns chances of competing in Sochi, and that an update on his condition was not expected before Monday.Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce thought his side did enough in the second half to win their game against Arsenal but is happy with a vital point following their 0-0 draw. The result lifts the Black Cats out of the relegation zone on goal difference with four games left to play in the Premier League.I thought second half we did enough to maybe pinch the game 1-0, Allardyce told Sky Sports. We coped extremely well with the possession they had and did limit them mostly to shots from outside the box. Laurent Koscielny of Arsenal battles Sunderlands Jermain Defoe for the ball Second half once we shut [Mohamed] Elneny and [Aaron] Ramsey down and stopped them playing, we started to get amongst it and win more possession, use the ball better and put Arsenal under quite a lot of pressure. So Im very pleased with the turnaround in our performance.[We] made the keeper work in the second half, which was good. I thought we should have had a definite penalty on [Jermain] Defoe, but overall Im very pleased with the clean sheet and the point.Both sides had a shout for a penalty for handball late in the first half, but while Allardyce believes DeAndre Yedlins block on Alex Iwobis shot was accidental, he thought Per Mertesackers handling of Defoes shot should have been given.Ive looked at it and said Yedlin has no chance of getting his arm out of the way because it hits his leg and arm, said Allardyce. I cant see that being any chance of being a penalty, whereas Mertesacker has turned his back on the ball, his arm is outstretched and hes stopped whats a certain goal I think.You want those things to go for you in our position, but we have earned a point today and the second-half performance it could havee been three.

Defoe says Sunderland should 100% have been awarded a penalty during their 0-0 draw with Arsenal He said: Were out of the bottom three with four games to go. Can we stay there? Now the challenge to the lads is to maintain that, go to Stoke and try and get a win to keep out of the bottom three.The resilience of the team and the way the teams playing, I couldnt ask for anymore. Weve grown in confidence since January and we have slipped up ourselves by not getting more points and making it safer than it is now, but were heading down the right track.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. Austin Gomber . -- The Chicago Bears have agreed to a four-year contract with second-round draft pick Ego Ferguson. The Bears have been moving quickly to wrap up their picks, with six of eight having already agreed to deals. The 6-foot-3, 315-pound Ferguson had 58 tackles in his lone season as a starter last year and is considered raw after leaving school a year early. He was suspended from the Outback Bowl against Iowa for violating team rules and did not work out at the NFL combine because of a right ankle injury he suffered in the days leading up to it. In addition to Ferguson, the Bears announced Tuesday they agreed to four-year deals with fourth-round draft pick KaDeem Carey (running back, Arizona), sixth-rounder Patrick ODonnell (punter, Miami, Fla.) and seventh-rounder Charles Leno Jr. (offensive tackle, Boise State). The Bears also agreed to deals with safety Brock Vereen and quarterback David Fales on Monday. First-round pick Kyle Fuller of Virginia Tech (cornerback) and defensive tackle Will Sutton of Arizona State (third round) remain unsigned. Carey figures to back up running back Matt Forte after running for 1,885 yards as a junior last season and being picked the Pac-12 offensive player of the year. Leno was a first-team all-Mountain West Conference selection as a senior. ODonnell spent four-plus seasons with Cincinnati (2009-12) and Miami, Fla. (2013) and averaged 43.5 gross yards on 234 punts. Last year, he ranked third in the nation with a school record 47.1 gross average on 53 punts. Tony La Russa .
