Betting tips and match preview | FA Cup

Sutton welcome Arsenal to the Borough Sports Ground in the 5th round of the FA Cup, with the hosts in a poor run of form.

Sutton come into this match on the back of a 2-1 defeat against Guiseley, in another National League defeat.

Jake Cassidy (7) opened the scoring for the hosts Guiseley, who immediately put Sutton on the back foot.

Matt Tubbs (37) equalised just before the second half, from the penalty spot to level the scoring.

A late goal from another Rooney, John in the 93rd minute broke Sutton hearts late on at Nethermoor Park.

Huge Match For Sutton

This fifth round fixture is the biggest match in Sutton’s history, given their league form this match is a huge priority.

They have lost their last three successive matches, with just two wins in their last six matches.

Defeats against Guiseley, Solihull Moors (3-0) and Boreham Wood (5-0) have had a detrimental effect of late.

Sutton did progress to this round at the expense of Leeds, winning 1-0 in the fourth round.

Sutton Underdogs

The non-leaguers come into this match as underdogs, understandable given Arsenal’s pedigree.

This will be a tough fixture for the non-league side, despite Arsenal suffering a stuffing at the hands of Bayern in midweek.

This is the first meeting between the two sides in any competitive fixture.

End Of An Era

The Gunners come into this match in poor form, having been utterly humiliated at the Allianz Arena in midweek.

Arjen Robben (11) opened the scoring for the Bavarians, with the class cut in and shoot from the right hand side.

Arsenal were awarded a penalty in the 30th minute, which Sanchez initially missed but scored from the second follow up.

An injury to Koscielny early in the second half resulted in a complete capitulation from the visitors.

Goals from Lewandowski (53), Thiago (56 & 63), and Thomas Muller completed a rout for the Germans.

It was another miserable night for the Gunners, they are almost certainly now out of the Champions League.

Gunners Down And Out

The Gunners now desperately need to register a win in this competition, with the Premier League and Champions League ambitions over.

Defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich is an all too familiar story, its their seventh successive exit in the last 16 of the competition.

Arsenal did finish top of Group A, with a surprise draw for PSG in their last match ensuring Arsenal ended top.

They progressed to this round of the competition having beaten Southampton, with a 5-0 win at St.Mary’s.

Gunners Favourites

Arsenal come into this match as the favourites, with the enormous difference in divisions informing the bookies.

Wenger’s men will be looking to avoid their fourth defeat in five matches, with defeat against Sutton simply unthinkable.

This is the first meeting between the two sides in any competitive fixture.
