Sutton United v Arsenal to take place on Monday Feb 20th


The date for Arsenal’s fifth round FA Cup tie at Sutton United has been confirmed, and the Gunners will travel to Gander Green Lane on Monday February 20th.

The game will be televised on BBC One with a kick off time of 7.55pm.

It had been suggested that Sutton might ask for the game to be moved to a higher capacity venue so they could take advantage of higher gate receipts but their Chairman, Bruce Elliot, ruled that out.

“The FA are very keen to play the game at Sutton, he said.

“We have proven we can have a full house and the police have been very happy.

“We have every intention of the game going ahead at Sutton because that is what the FA Cup is all about.”

Arsenal will have to contend with a 3G pitch, something they rarely have to deal with, as the National League side look to cause a massive upset.
