Our 5th round FA Cup game away at Portsmouth has been scheduled for Monday the 2nd March, kicking off at 7.45pm.
We have now played every round on a Monday night following our 1-0 win over Leeds, and our 2-1 win away at Bournemouth.
It’s yet to be seen whether they’ll move the semi-final and final to a Monday night just to really p*ss us off, the cup final is currently scheduled to take place on the 23rd of May.

The game is being shown live on BT Sport and probably now involves afternoons and mornings off for most travelling Arsenal fans. Just to make things even more complicated and unpredictable, these ties could all go to extra time and penalties on the night as there are no replays from now on in this seasons competition meaning the possibility of people missing last trains back to London.
