Three Arsenal youngsters Wenger must use vs. Sutton
Sutton United will take part in what is perhaps the club’s biggest ever fixture on Monday night as they welcome Arsenal to Gander Green Lane in the FA Cup Fifth Round.
The National League side remain the lowest ranked team still in the historic competition, having knocked out Championship outfit Leeds United in dramatic fashion in the previous round and Ipswich Town before that.
However, if Sutton’s recent form is to give any indication as to the likely outcome of the Monday night fixture, it doesn’t look like it will be another fairytale FA Cup story for the hosts. Paul Doswell’s side have lost their last three league fixtures on the bounce, conceding ten goals in the process, which is not exactly the ideal warm-up for welcoming a side who currently reside in fourth place in the Premier League.
Arsenal fans were rubbing their hands at the draw having avoided all of the bigger clubs in the competition, and with Arsene Wenger’s side now all but out of the title race and the Champions League, a third FA Cup title in four years could rescue another poor campaign.
It is unlikely that the Gunners will field a full strength side for a tough away day in south London, so a few of their younger players could be given the nod.
