Sutton midfielder makes surprise revelation ahead of Arsenal clash

Arsenal's French manager Arsene Wenger, second left, sits with his reserve players during the English FA Cup fifth round soccer match between Arsenal and Sutton United at Gander Green Lane stadium in London, Monday, Feb. 20, 2017.

There is potential for a shock win, though, considering that Sutton overcame Leeds United in the fifth round, plus the Gunners will lack some confidence after getting thrashed by Bayern Munich 5-1 in the Champions League last week.

"It's very different, I must say, on this kind of pitch, and it was not an easy game at all", he said.

Arsene Wenger fielded a few first team stars in the line up which included Theo Walcott, Mohamed Elneny Granit Xhaka, Gabriel Paulista and Shkodran Mustafi, while Alexis Sanchez was named on the bench.

When Match Of The Day host Gary Lineker suggested that Wenger could get a new deal thanks to their FA Cup win, Morgan was quick to respond. Ideally we would like to play on a normal pitch.

If Arsenal's trip to Sutton United wasn't intriguing enough before the weekend, the draw for the quarter-finals has just raised the stakes even higher for the non-league minnows.

The early part of the game saw both teams failing to create any meaningful scoring opportunities.




Still, the veteran took a chance and made a decision to get started on his pre-match warm down with a pie as Arsenal led 2-0 with 10 minutes remaining - an event that was priced at 8/1 by various bookmakers before the match.

The devastating defeat in Germany unfolded in front of a crowd of 75,000, but only 5,000 will be in attendance for the crucial FA Cup clash against the non-league minnows.

Paul Doswell: "There's two ways of looking at it".

Sportsmail brings you all the build-up to what should be a classic FA Cup tie on Monday night... He actually sent me a nice text when we beat Liverpool so we keep in touch.

Sutton United now occupy the 16th place in the league.

Holders Manchester United are away to Championship strugglers Blackburn on Sunday fresh from Zlatan Ibrahimovic's hat-trick in a 3-0 win over St Etienne in the first leg of their last 32 Europa League tie on Thursday.
