FA and BBC in match report blunders.
Apparently no-one can tell the difference between Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Last month, Arsenal successfully ensured that neither Gibbs nor the Ox were suspended after referee Andre Marriner sent off the left back rather than the England winger in the 4-0 defeat at Chelsea.
If that one instance of mistaken identity wasn’t enough, the governing body have again confused the pair in their match report of yesterday’s FA Cup semi-final, claiming that Gibbs instead of Chamberlain set-up Per Mertesacker’s late equaliser.
Amazingly, the BBC also made the same mistake in their official match report:
This episode raises some important questions, specifically:
1) Are the pair swapping shirts just to screw with us?
2) Should it be ‘Gibbs” or ‘Gibbs’s”?
I genuinely don’t know the answer to either.
