Watch: Aiden McGeady Tears Arsenal To Shreds To Create Opening Goal For Preston
By David Kent Updated

We've seen a couple of big upsets already on this FA Cup weekend. Lincoln drawing with Ipswich. Stoke and Bournemouth both exiting the competition to lower league opposition. And the evening kick-off provided the opportunity for another one, as Preston hosted Arsenal.

The big 'Irish' pre-match news from Deepdale was that Daryl Horgan was on the bench for the Lilywhites. It was the first time since moving from Dundalk a couple of months that Horgan was on a teamsheet and it caused a little bit of buzz on social media.

Everyone seemed to forget about the Irish winger that was actually starting on the field. Aiden McGeady soon reminded people what he can do. Preston took the lead inside six minutes, and it all came from a magnificent run and pass by the Irish international.

It started with a move that you only do on your mates on FIFA. The 'McGeady spin' has been a mainstay on the computer game series for years, but this was more of a conventional roulette by the Ireland winger.

Aaron Ramsey was drawn in, and sent dizzy by the feet of the winger. He then delivered an inch-perfect pass to Jordan Hugil. The ball eventually fell to the feet of Callum Robinson, and he made no mistake from six yards out.

But it's all about the move of McGeady - which is a rare enough occurrence these days. The 30-year-old has only managed to find the net once since moving on loan to Deepdale from Everton, with just two assists to boot. But he's having a stormer against the Gunners.

Who knows, we may even see McGeady bombing down one wing with Horgan threatening from the other side. Mouthwatering
