It’s the stuff of fairy tales, no not Theo scoring a hat trick, but Arsenal getting drawn away to Sutton United of the National League in the next round of the FA Cup.
After Sutton beat Leeds United 1-0 on Sunday and we despatched Southampton 5-0, this is undoubtedly the tie of the round, a real David and Goliath, a mouth watering tie which will definitely be televised.
Paul Doswell, Sutton’s manager, said the game: “…will be like our World Cup final, to have Arsenal coming to Gander Green Lane is just incredible.”
