FA Cup: Iwobi Helps Arsenal Cruise Past Sutton Into Q/Finals

FA Cup: Iwobi Helps Arsenal Cruise Past Sutton Into Q/Finals

Despite suggesting that he may opt to play a near-full strength side, Arsene Wenger made seven changes to his team following last week's humbing defeat to Bayern Munich.

Wenger "has admitted he is concerned about facing Sutton United on the National League side's artificial 3G pitch and warned his Arsenal players not to take the FA Cup fifth-round tie lightly in a week in which he has come out fighting over increased scrutiny of his position", says The Guardian.

FA Cup hero Matt Rhead would love to give Arsenal the old Stokie treatment in the quarter finals of the FA Cup.

Arsenal will be wary about the threat of an upset but whatever side chosen should have enough to advance through to the quarter-finals yet again.

Wenger had his team train indoors on their own artificial pitch on Friday at London Colney, and said they can not use the unusual surface as an excuse.

The Gunners are desperate to bounce back from their Champions League humiliation in midweek, but will have to contend with the plastic pitch and a fired-up non-League side. "Secondly their enthusiasm. Thirdly that we are not ready mentally for a big fight and think subconsciously that it doesn't matter".

Nonetheless, the score remained 2-0 at the full-time whistle, as the Gunners progressed the quarterfinals, where they will face another non-league outfit, Lincoln City.

Arsenal even introduced Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to further highlight the huge gulf in available resources between the two clubs and it is they who moved a step closer to Wembley, ending a historic run for Sutton, who certainly did not disgrace themselves on the big stage.

"Lincoln and Sutton have done our competition very proud". If not, then we'll obviously play Arsenal. During a pre-match interview with Arsene Wenger, the camera showed viewers around the room in which the Arsenal manager was responding to questions.

He told The Sun: 'My diet has got me to where I am today!

Sutton are now 17th in the National League, 5th tier of the English Football and 105 places below the Gunners.

If Arsenal's problems weren't bad enough, on Monday evening they must negotiate a tricky FA Cup tie on Sutton United's plastic pitch.

"I could not wish for a better draw".

Manchester City, away to Championship high-flyers Huddersfield, will be without Gabriel Jesus after the striker, who had scored three goals in as many league games since his January arrival, broke a metatarsal bone in a league win at Bournemouth. "Go and have your day in the sun like we have".
