The scene of one of those cup shocks you never tire of seeing.

:00:08.:00:20.

Sutton United welcomed by a capacity 8000 crowd, a big day for the club.

:00:21.:00:28.

It's gone in and Rains with the goal. Phillips has put Coventry City

:00:29.:00:38.

level. Number 11, Matthew Hanlan. Sutton United of the Vauxhall

:00:39.:00:42.

Conference, beating Coventry City. Not a lot has changed here in the 28

:00:43.:00:44.

years since that memorable And tonight the Arsenal players

:00:45.:00:47.

certainly won't be used And they'll need to be wary

:00:48.:00:52.

of a team who are already writing their own chapter of FA

:00:53.:00:56.

Cup folklore. Roarie Deacon, with virtually the

:00:57.:01:05.

last kick of the match has put them into the second round of the FA Cup!

:01:06.:01:13.

The winning goal, Sutton United. Brilliantly dispatched by the

:01:14.:01:18.

skipper. 1989 all over again. Sutton United will play...

:01:19.:01:23.

An astonishing 106 places separates these two teams,

:01:24.:01:29.

it's the classic non-league minnows versus a giant of

:01:30.:01:32.

It would be the greatest FA Cup shock in history.

:01:33.:01:38.

Arsenal arrive in Sutton in the midst of a crisis,

:01:39.:02:07.

thrashed by Bayern Munich 5-1 last week in a performance Arsene Wenger

:02:08.:02:10.

After 20 years at the club, the manager says his future will be

:02:11.:02:17.

decided in the next couple of months, but he will be managing

:02:18.:02:20.

And what a banana skin they face tonight,

:02:21.:02:25.

non-league Sutton United are four divisions below the Gunners,

:02:26.:02:27.

in a relegation fight in the National league.

:02:28.:02:33.

Anything less than a win for Arsenal will surely

:02:34.:02:35.

Some 5,000 fans are packed into Gander Greeen Lane tonight -

:02:36.:02:41.

and it's fair to say it hasn't changed a great deal since that win

:02:42.:02:45.

Although it does now feature a 3G pitch, which could become a bit

:02:46.:02:51.

Good evening, welcome to Gander Green Lane. Quite a special place.

:02:52.:03:02.

Former Arsenal player Martin Keown and Alan Shearer in the studio.

:03:03.:03:06.

Alan, this is a bit different, like a throwback. We've got Sutton,

:03:07.:03:14.

Lincoln and Millwall to thank for breeding a bit of life back into the

:03:15.:03:18.

FA Cup. For the last six weeks we've sat here, in the games, saying that

:03:19.:03:24.

teams haven't taken it seriously enough, leading players out. This is

:03:25.:03:30.

what it's about tonight, a great draw already in the quarterfinals

:03:31.:03:35.

with Chelsea and Man United. Lincoln are there, could Sutton actually do

:03:36.:03:40.

it? Incredible. If they do they are guaranteed a non-league side, in the

:03:41.:03:47.

final, at Wembley. We work in the Premier League every week but

:03:48.:03:49.

nothing beats this, this could be a major giant-killing. I feel nervous

:03:50.:03:55.

sitting here as an Arsenal man. I wouldn't be nervous if I was

:03:56.:04:01.

playing. It needs to be men who are playing. Have you ever played in

:04:02.:04:07.

anything like this? Not at this level. You look at the pits, we

:04:08.:04:13.

played at Luton and QPR, I think it is a huge home advantage. They've

:04:14.:04:19.

improved since those days. Alan? I played non-league Stevenage at

:04:20.:04:24.

Newcastle, we went 1-0 up after three minutes and we thought that's

:04:25.:04:29.

it, we're here now and we can coast, but Stevenage came back and made it

:04:30.:04:33.

very difficult. That us back to Saint James 's Park and we just got

:04:34.:04:38.

through. It won't be easy for Arsenal, if they have the wrong

:04:39.:04:43.

attitude. I lost with Leicester at Harlow, I was about 18, 19, it was

:04:44.:04:49.

dreadful and you never get over it! Arsenal's players were criticised

:04:50.:04:54.

after the humiliation in Munich. Let's see what they think of Sutton.

:04:55.:05:01.

What has the preparation been like for the game? Everyone talking about

:05:02.:05:05.

the plastic pitch. We've seen you coming to Gander Green Lane and fair

:05:06.:05:09.

to say that the locals are excited. Hundreds of people, great

:05:10.:05:14.

atmosphere. We had a session in the week on the indoor Astroturf, so we

:05:15.:05:21.

have adapted to it. It is very different to the life you are used

:05:22.:05:27.

to as Arsenal players. For me I was playing on a pitch like this in

:05:28.:05:31.

preseason, so it's pretty similar to me. Last year you were playing in a

:05:32.:05:34.

Bolton team who nearly slipped up against Eastleigh. You know what

:05:35.:05:39.

football at this level can be like. Especially the FA Cup, we've seen

:05:40.:05:47.

that over the weekend. We has to -- we must concentrate on our own game

:05:48.:05:50.

and we'll be OK. Thank you for joining us. Let's have a look at the

:05:51.:05:57.

Arsenal team for tonight, seven changes but Ospina, who made a

:05:58.:06:00.

couple of good saves in Munich continues as their chosen cup

:06:01.:06:04.

keeper. Injury to Koscielny means that Holding partners with Mustafi

:06:05.:06:10.

and there are recalls for Gabriel and Monreal. The two deep

:06:11.:06:18.

midfielders, Xhaka and the need -- Elneny. There is a rare start for

:06:19.:06:29.

Lucas Perez. No Ozil or Giroud and Sanchez on the bench, Walcott is the

:06:30.:06:32.

biggest attacking threat and his next goal will be number 100 for

:06:33.:06:38.

Arsenal. They've left out a few but plenty of experienced footballers.

:06:39.:06:43.

Once you would expect to be able to cope with this level. You'd think

:06:44.:06:46.

so, there should be enough in the team, if they have the right

:06:47.:06:50.

attitude. If they go about it from the start, they should be beating a

:06:51.:06:56.

team like this. As we said, they're on a hiding to nothing, unless they

:06:57.:07:01.

score four, five goals, then I'm sure they'll be criticised tomorrow.

:07:02.:07:06.

They've got to go out and start the game with real intent. All about

:07:07.:07:11.

attitude with these. Players come if they have an excuse, like a plastic

:07:12.:07:15.

pitch, 3G, whatever you want to call it, they can take that excuse. You

:07:16.:07:20.

need personality and character, you must stand up and be counted as an

:07:21.:07:25.

Arsenal player. Lucas Perez coming in is interesting, he's got a

:07:26.:07:29.

hat-trick the last time he started. Whether he'll play down the middle

:07:30.:07:34.

or out wide, that pace on the break, when Sutton get the ball they will

:07:35.:07:38.

be heading into channels, take no risks. I've played out on this

:07:39.:07:42.

picture couple of weeks ago. You did? Doing some research, it's a

:07:43.:07:48.

great pitch to play on, PA Master of the ball. What's difficult about it?

:07:49.:07:56.

It is bouncy, take it out of the air. Don't let it bounce. Not

:07:57.:08:01.

necessarily your game! It would make me look even worse! Have you played

:08:02.:08:08.

on plastic pitches? Yes, early in my career, no excuses, they have won at

:08:09.:08:11.

the training ground so I'm sure they'll have been on that. In terms

:08:12.:08:15.

of Arsene Wenger, everyone is speculating about whether he will

:08:16.:08:19.

still be the Arsenal manager next season, what is your gut feeling? I

:08:20.:08:24.

feel that he wants to play every game as it comes, he's a fighter and

:08:25.:08:28.

he was defiant in the press Conference. You saw intelligence. It

:08:29.:08:32.

was like throwing a punch at anyone who doubted whether he would carry

:08:33.:08:36.

on. Interesting dilemma, if he left Arsenal. What do you think? I think

:08:37.:08:43.

100% he will be at the club, don't want to see him go to Barcelona.

:08:44.:08:47.

Amazed at the reaction after the game last week because what's

:08:48.:08:52.

changed? That happens to Arsenal at this time of year every year. Why

:08:53.:08:55.

are so many former players and pundits saying they think that he

:08:56.:09:00.

should go? They can still win the cup and still get in fourth

:09:01.:09:03.

position, which has been more than good enough for the last 12 years.

:09:04.:09:09.

Should it be? I think it is split with the Arsenal fans. It has been

:09:10.:09:16.

over the years for them. Two years ago they had 250,000 on the streets

:09:17.:09:22.

when they won the FA Cup. It is the man of the performers, the naivete

:09:23.:09:24.

of the performers against Bayern Munich. Has that happened before? --

:09:25.:09:31.

the naivete of the performance. Let's hear more about the sudden

:09:32.:09:37.

players, Mark went to one of their training sessions where there was a

:09:38.:09:42.

sense of excitement. -- Sutton players.

:09:43.:09:49.

Number six, Sutton United will play... We are still pinching

:09:50.:09:59.

ourselves, I think, one of those magic moments. So many of them on

:10:00.:10:03.

this cup run. The last three weeks has proved that the cup is a bit

:10:04.:10:10.

special. Collins, for Sutton, 1-0, brilliantly dispatched by the

:10:11.:10:13.

skipper. How on earth were you feeling as you stepped up? I was

:10:14.:10:19.

quite calm, I had a feeling I was going to school but when you see the

:10:20.:10:22.

ball hitting the back of the net it is a relief and the rest if his --

:10:23.:10:29.

the rest is history. The Match of the Day studio going up, did you

:10:30.:10:32.

want to give them some advice? They've got the high visibility on,

:10:33.:10:36.

it looks like they are knowing what they are doing. To be fair,

:10:37.:10:42.

scaffolding is a tough job. If you want to do it, it's up to you! Did

:10:43.:10:48.

you see the Arsenal game last night, guys? LAUGHTER

:10:49.:10:57.

Oh, you are confident! When you went for the trial at Newcastle, little

:10:58.:11:01.

bird tells me that you had a couple of nights out with Alan Shearer. I

:11:02.:11:06.

didn't have any nights out with him, I got a feudal -- few claw marks on

:11:07.:11:15.

my face. I was getting the better of him in training and he didn't like

:11:16.:11:18.

this kid from London getting the better of him. We aren't going into

:11:19.:11:22.

the game thinking there is no chance of us winning, everyone is

:11:23.:11:25.

confident. Beating Leeds was unbelievable for the fans, everyone

:11:26.:11:31.

ran onto the pitch and being able to celebrate the victory with the fans

:11:32.:11:37.

on top of you, fantastic. The changing room, stadium, the pitch,

:11:38.:11:41.

you never know. It is a little chance but still a chance, it is the

:11:42.:11:47.

FA Cup so anything can happen. Sutton began the FA Cup run back in

:11:48.:11:51.

October in the fourth qualifying round and it took a 90th minute

:11:52.:11:56.

winner to beat Forest Green Rovers in front of 751 spectators. Since

:11:57.:12:02.

then they have beaten Cheltenham, AFC Wimbledon and Championship team

:12:03.:12:07.

Leeds and made an estimated ?1 million. Their manager Paul Doswell

:12:08.:12:12.

has done well. The man himself, don't take this the

:12:13.:12:16.

wrong way but it feels like a wedding where an extra few thousand

:12:17.:12:19.

people have turned up. Does it feel like that for you? I haven't got a

:12:20.:12:26.

cake for them! It is poetry 3500 uninvited guests for the normal

:12:27.:12:30.

league games! What an atmosphere, the night game always adds to the

:12:31.:12:34.

atmosphere and looking round it is an incredible experience and I'm

:12:35.:12:40.

sure everyone will enjoy it. What do you say to your players? It's a

:12:41.:12:43.

cliche but it must be difficult for them not to be carried away when

:12:44.:12:46.

they see the Arsenal players they will be taking on. The first thing

:12:47.:12:51.

they must do is get past the Arsenal bodyguards because each player had a

:12:52.:12:55.

bodyguard, which we are used to. From our point of view we have had

:12:56.:12:59.

an easy day, some set pieces, chilling out at the Hotel, which is

:13:00.:13:04.

unusual for the players because they are normally working. The excitement

:13:05.:13:10.

has started. We've said to them, it is 11 against 11, it is 0-0 when you

:13:11.:13:15.

start. As long as you give everything you've got, every bit of

:13:16.:13:19.

you, you have a chance and we will believe in that chance until we

:13:20.:13:24.

can't. Your chances may be improved by the pitch. We have a ball here.

:13:25.:13:31.

The pitch makes a difference, Wimbledon and Leeds struggled here,

:13:32.:13:33.

Arsene Wenger told us that they've got to deal with the conditions.

:13:34.:13:37.

What does it mean from your perspective to be playing on the

:13:38.:13:46.

plastic pitch? The first thing is, Arsenal got a plastic pitch

:13:47.:13:48.

themselves so they are used to playing on the surface. As far as

:13:49.:13:55.

we're concerned, we're at home, that's our best chance to get a

:13:56.:14:00.

result, because we are at our little ground, not surrounded by

:14:01.:14:02.

bodyguards, we are surrounded by good people and players. That's what

:14:03.:14:06.

I hope, that the players can look back on it's not just as a good

:14:07.:14:09.

occasion but giving a great performance. The result, we'll see

:14:10.:14:15.

but they've got to give everything. I hope you and the players enjoyed

:14:16.:14:20.

it. Word of warning, Paul's nickname was Lauren Aker, which is apparently

:14:21.:14:24.

how they say your name in the farming community -- Lineacre. Katie

:14:25.:14:37.

is desperate, they want to come and see you, Gary, in the studio

:14:38.:14:44.

afterwards. Don't leave early, Gary! Welcomer Katie is welcome! He can

:14:45.:14:48.

stay where he is. We have Tim Vine with us, we searched everywhere for

:14:49.:14:54.

a famous Sutton fan. Yes, sorry about that! Tell us about your team.

:14:55.:15:00.

This is a small club and it's a charming... Have you looked at the

:15:01.:15:06.

clubhouse? The dressing room is remarkable. It is like a 1970s

:15:07.:15:12.

throwback. I don't want too much money to come to the club because it

:15:13.:15:15.

may change it, I like the atmosphere but the atmosphere, you are the

:15:16.:15:21.

experts but if they were to beat Arsenal, surely this would be the

:15:22.:15:30.

biggest FA Cup... I said that, a Premier League team beaten on

:15:31.:15:34.

Saturday, but this is Arsenal. It is David and Goliath. Thinking about

:15:35.:15:39.

the David and Goliath story, something that David did, it's

:15:40.:15:44.

interesting, he attacked first. While Goliath was still looking

:15:45.:15:49.

around. Before kick-off, then! Tell us about some of the star players.

:15:50.:15:55.

I'm a bit of a Johnny come lately to the side. Roarie Deacon. In the last

:15:56.:16:03.

game, did he score in the last game? I can't remember. Collins scored,

:16:04.:16:08.

didn't he. The spot kick. Against Wimbledon. He has some belting shots

:16:09.:16:15.

from outside of the area and he was unlucky not to score. I think him

:16:16.:16:19.

and Eastmond are two players, they were at Arsenal. Both of them work

:16:20.:16:24.

Eastmond played ten matches for Arsenal.

:16:25.:16:30.

Massive incentive, there is Roarie Deacon, brilliant. He looks calm to

:16:31.:16:38.

me. What chance have someone like that... Real slow mover, I like slow

:16:39.:16:44.

motion. It is amazing situation. We won't ask you to do any analysis. We

:16:45.:16:50.

will get Alan to do that. I am doing some online punditry. He usually

:16:51.:16:58.

breaks deeper midfield, as is and does. Bailey sits deep in the

:16:59.:17:01.

midfield but look at this for a goal. Fantastic turn. Full of

:17:02.:17:05.

confidence at the moment, a lot of clubs looking at him. He might be

:17:06.:17:09.

one that you are going to lose, but listen he is enjoying the run. He

:17:10.:17:13.

said he has fallen in love again with football. That is what the FA

:17:14.:17:18.

Cup has done to him. Left foot, right foot. He said when he was let

:17:19.:17:23.

go by Arsenal was the lover 's point of his life, so the incentive to

:17:24.:17:28.

show the world what he can do. Only non-league football throws up

:17:29.:17:31.

stories like this, Wayne Shaw, also looks after the flood in many ways.

:17:32.:17:36.

It is fair to say he is a big lad, but he used to play alongside Alan

:17:37.:17:43.

Shearer. At Southampton. True? Absolutely, when we were 14 or 15,

:17:44.:17:49.

there he is giving me the wave. I followed my dreams to the Premier

:17:50.:17:52.

League, he followed his to the burger van, I think! LAUGHTER

:17:53.:17:57.

I thought it was your turn out there. Lovely lad, he loved a laugh

:17:58.:18:03.

and a joke. I took penalties against him and a mate of mine last summer

:18:04.:18:08.

and I got six out of ten. Are you going to win this game? Won 2-1 to

:18:09.:18:18.

Sutton. Until the final whistle is blowed, I will just train. Let's go

:18:19.:18:22.

for it. What am I doing in the dressing room? Your twin brother is

:18:23.:18:27.

in there. Great scenes, Simon Downer will be in there, you scratched his

:18:28.:18:31.

face apparently years ago. I can't believe it, a centre-half from

:18:32.:18:36.

non-league is learning about a scratch on his face? That is what

:18:37.:18:39.

Martin Keown did in the Premier League! It is hard to find someone

:18:40.:18:46.

whose face has not been scratched by Alan. What a non-believable

:18:47.:18:49.

opportunity for these guys this evening. You could be speaking about

:18:50.:18:53.

these guys in years and years to come. Kleen this could be the

:18:54.:18:58.

YouTube clip, the go to clip. Look at this incredible victory. It could

:18:59.:19:03.

happen to that. It is a dream for them. They don't want it to end.

:19:04.:19:08.

Probably just wanted to start at the moment. Despite winning the cup

:19:09.:19:11.

twice in the last three years, pressure is mounting on the Arsenal

:19:12.:19:15.

anergy, Arsene Wenger, has 21st season in charge is falling apart

:19:16.:19:18.

after a truly dreadful couple of months. I am here for 20 years. Mike

:19:19.:19:24.

Kerr about this club. COMMENTATOR: Back-to-back defeats for Arsenal in

:19:25.:19:30.

a week. Giroud with a header, there were 3-0 down and turned it round.

:19:31.:19:36.

Arsene Wenger says Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will not be allowed

:19:37.:19:39.

to leave Arsenal before their contracts expire. There is no

:19:40.:19:44.

concern. Arsene Wenger will miss the next four games after accepting an

:19:45.:19:52.

ethic Cup misconduct charge. It is that mental strength. Fabregas, that

:19:53.:20:03.

completes Arsenal 's misery! I get the impression that is it. 5-1 to

:20:04.:20:12.

Bayern Munich! Arsenal are being totally embarrassed, they are the

:20:13.:20:15.

laughing stock. What is important is that the club makes the right

:20:16.:20:20.

decision. Arson, there has been a bit of soul-searching over the last

:20:21.:20:24.

few days. Does this game against Sutton United in the FA Cup to view

:20:25.:20:27.

the best opportunity to get Bayern Munich out of the completion -- out

:20:28.:20:37.

of the mind? We want to focus on this competition and turned up

:20:38.:20:41.

straightaway from the start. It is very unusual circumstances and the

:20:42.:20:45.

need for focus, because it will certainly be a very committed game.

:20:46.:20:50.

With that in my new have picked a strong side, is that because you are

:20:51.:20:53.

wary of the threat that Sutton can bring? Of course was the eye have

:20:54.:20:58.

played here in England for a long time and I know that every FA Cup is

:20:59.:21:03.

difficult, every tie is difficult. So we are prepared for that. We will

:21:04.:21:08.

not be surprised. You have come through the crowd outside the fight,

:21:09.:21:13.

I'm sure you know this is a huge night for their fans. There will be

:21:14.:21:16.

5000 people here tonight. A lot of talk has been about the plastic

:21:17.:21:22.

pitch, is that a concern? No, top-level sport is to adapt to the

:21:23.:21:26.

problem you face, you know. At least the pitch is flat. We are not used

:21:27.:21:30.

to it but I believe the players have enough quality, in the warm up, to

:21:31.:21:35.

overcome the problems they will face and adapt to it is part of the magic

:21:36.:21:40.

that we are doing an interview in a room like this. This is where the

:21:41.:21:44.

reserve team goalkeeper sleeps through that a week, apparently. I

:21:45.:21:48.

have a lot of respect for that. I come from a club that are smaller

:21:49.:21:52.

even from that, and I have been educated in this kind of clubs, and

:21:53.:21:58.

usually these clubs depend on two or three people who really dedicate

:21:59.:22:01.

their whole life for it. I have a lot of respect for that. Good to

:22:02.:22:07.

hear, enjoy the game tonight. Well said, Arsene Wenger. It is stories

:22:08.:22:12.

like that better part of the magic of the FA Cup. Yes, they are, I said

:22:13.:22:17.

it is my first bit, it is a great occasion for everyone connected with

:22:18.:22:21.

this football club. I hope they can go out and enjoy it and do

:22:22.:22:25.

themselves justice. You were saying, Martin, despite the fact that

:22:26.:22:29.

Arsenal had a 3G pitch, Arsene Wenger doesn't like to practice on

:22:30.:22:34.

it. No, he doesn't think it is good for the body. That is why Welbeck is

:22:35.:22:38.

not here, he would not want to put his knees at risk on this type of

:22:39.:22:42.

occasion. They would have hardly been on it at all, but they will be

:22:43.:22:47.

prepared. The pitches they play on the Premier League are all very

:22:48.:22:50.

solid and hard. Most people are here for an upset. We saw Alan Pardew, a

:22:51.:22:56.

friend of the chairman, so he will no doubt be cheering Sutton on this

:22:57.:23:02.

evening. Just before they go out. Yes, Arsenal will win this. The

:23:03.:23:06.

mutual would love anything that Arsenal but I can't see anything

:23:07.:23:11.

other than Arsenal winning this. -- the neutral. Paul Doswell is

:23:12.:23:16.

enjoying the scene, his players will be other very shortly. Can't Sutton

:23:17.:23:20.

United become the first non-league team to reach the FA Cup

:23:21.:23:26.

quarterfinal since Saturday? Before that it was 1914.

:23:27.:23:30.

COMMENTATOR: Good evening, everyone. Look at Paul Doswell, the Sutton

:23:31.:23:39.

manager, and the beaming smile on his face. Some nervous faces in

:23:40.:23:43.

there. A nightmare few days for Arsenal. Tonight a full house of a

:23:44.:23:47.

little over 5000 who are lucky enough to get a ticket to prepare a

:23:48.:23:54.

welcome to remember. And for Sutton United it is welcome to their

:23:55.:24:03.

wildest, wildest dreams. CHEERING If football still has a place for

:24:04.:24:07.

dreamers amongst the private jets, private chefs, supercars and

:24:08.:24:11.

superstars, then Gander Green Lane in the fifth round of the FA Cup is

:24:12.:24:17.

that place. Sutton United, represented by players who once had

:24:18.:24:22.

dreams themselves of being something special, and proudly supported by

:24:23.:24:26.

fans who probably prefer ground topping the glory hunting, people

:24:27.:24:31.

for whom Costa is a coffee and Kane is a stick. But somehow Sutton

:24:32.:24:37.

United are playing Arsenal, and there is the chairman who has been a

:24:38.:24:41.

fan for over 50 years, Bruce Elliott. What a proud night for him,

:24:42.:24:46.

and congratulations to everybody, all the volunteers who have played

:24:47.:24:49.

their part in getting this game on here. Forget all the talk of 3G,

:24:50.:24:53.

this is virtual reality. So the Sutton team appropriately

:24:54.:25:06.

enough has an Arsenal fan and gold. Across the back, Captain Jamie

:25:07.:25:08.

Collins, scorer of that penalty against Leeds, in a defence

:25:09.:25:12.

including Dean Beckwith who has recovered from a hamstring. Craig

:25:13.:25:17.

Eastmond played ten games Arsenal 's first team including one in the

:25:18.:25:20.

Champions League. Roarie Deacon and other who did not quite make it at

:25:21.:25:24.

Arsenal, four goals in 16 games for their reserves though. They are

:25:25.:25:28.

semiprofessional but definitely not a bunch of butchers, bakers and

:25:29.:25:32.

candlestick makers. They have all played in the Football League, or in

:25:33.:25:36.

the case of striker Maxim Biamou, the French equivalent. And five of

:25:37.:25:43.

this Arsenal team have FA Cup winners medals in their collections.

:25:44.:25:46.

Rob Holding at the back was part of the Bolton team that almost came

:25:47.:25:49.

unstuck against Eastleigh in the cup last season. Mustafi, Monreal and

:25:50.:25:55.

Gabriel with plenty of experience around them. Xhaka will not pull out

:25:56.:26:04.

of anything, that is for sure. Jeff Reine-Adelaide describe something

:26:05.:26:07.

special by Arsene Wenger. Theo Walcott now Arsenal 's longest

:26:08.:26:10.

serving player on 99 goals for the club. He got three in the last round

:26:11.:26:12.

at Southampton. Arsene Wenger has come out fighting

:26:13.:26:24.

since Munich. Not ready to retire. May go on longer than Sir Alex

:26:25.:26:28.

Ferguson, he says, but not necessarily with Arsenal, and no

:26:29.:26:32.

manager has won the FA Cup more times than his six. That is a joint

:26:33.:26:38.

record. Arsenal do, should they require him, have the instruments

:26:39.:26:43.

policy of Alexis Sanchez -- insurance policy of Alexis Sanchez

:26:44.:26:49.

among their substitutes. What a night. Set up perfectly for a cuppa

:26:50.:26:53.

evening. The guys in the studio talking about the mentality of

:26:54.:26:56.

Arsenal, and the opening ten or 15 minutes, it will be interesting to

:26:57.:27:00.

see how Arsenal adapt to the conditions both on and off the

:27:01.:27:03.

pitch. They got here late. The dressing rooms are tiny, so

:27:04.:27:06.

everything set up to them to be unsettled. You would hope that they

:27:07.:27:09.

realised their professional pride is at stake and they put in a

:27:10.:27:14.

performance that makes people watching, at home or here at the

:27:15.:27:18.

stadium, realise why they are top-level professional footballers.

:27:19.:27:20.

For Sutton, it is a case of them playing their game, getting through

:27:21.:27:24.

the first 20 minutes and dealing with the game in blocks will stop if

:27:25.:27:27.

they stick to their game plan, they will always give themselves a

:27:28.:27:30.

chance, and if they can pick competitive in the first, as we saw

:27:31.:27:33.

with Lincoln, you just don't know what will happen at the end of the

:27:34.:27:38.

game. A little embarrassing moment for Theo Walcott who has nothing to

:27:39.:27:46.

give Jamie Collins in return for the Sutton United banner. Arsenal don't

:27:47.:27:50.

miss much, by the way, they dead after Mr Fleck that. There is Gander

:27:51.:27:56.

Green Lane, and the 3G pitch in all its glory -- don't often miss stuff

:27:57.:28:01.

like that. Suter very much used to it, Arsenal not. This is not the

:28:02.:28:08.

same surface that Arsenal have at their training ground -- Sutton very

:28:09.:28:13.

much used this and stop have a dry indoor pitch to stop this is a wet

:28:14.:28:14.

outdoor pitch. In the last three games, they have

:28:15.:28:25.

been behind inside the first six minutes. They surely can't let that

:28:26.:28:30.

happen today and get away with it. It is Arsenal who will kick off from

:28:31.:28:37.

left to right in the first 45 minutes, in the red and white

:28:38.:28:43.

shirts, in the FA Cup fifth round, with Lincoln City awaiting the

:28:44.:28:49.

winners. Sutton United all in yellow, Arsenal in red and white.

:28:50.:28:54.

Here is Gabriel. I would imagine all the Arsenal

:28:55.:29:06.

players would appreciate an early touch. As they become accustomed to

:29:07.:29:08.

their surroundings. Mustafi, the first World Cup winner

:29:09.:29:23.

to play at the stadium since Jackie Charlton, back in 1970 for Leeds

:29:24.:29:27.

United. The won here 6-0 in the cup tie.

:29:28.:29:31.

And Sutton will get their first touch of the ball in a minute. Solid

:29:32.:29:51.

possession for Arsenal at that point but Sutton doing the right thing,

:29:52.:29:55.

trying to keep compact. The defence was quite high, a couple of Arsenal

:29:56.:29:59.

runners trying to get in behind. That was a Mancho's throw, aimed

:30:00.:30:02.

towards Biamou. -- that was a Theo Walcott trying to get a behind

:30:03.:30:22.

Jamie Collins with the clearing header for Sutton United. Flag is up

:30:23.:30:27.

on the near side. It is imperative Arsenal keep making

:30:28.:30:39.

those runs in behind the Sutton backline. Decent clearance. They

:30:40.:30:43.

have got to keep their discipline, Sutton, they have to come out as a

:30:44.:30:48.

group. The two central defender is very experienced, that backline,

:30:49.:30:51.

coming out together making sure that Walcott was outside. But I imagine

:30:52.:30:55.

if they continue to use that tactic there will be a couple of tough

:30:56.:30:58.

calls for the assistant on the near side.

:30:59.:31:03.

Roarie Deacon. Can't keep the ball in play. Had a wonderful game

:31:04.:31:09.

against Leeds here. Monreal with the Arsenal throw in.

:31:10.:31:19.

They like that. Good tackle, Eastmond. He'll have

:31:20.:31:53.

enjoyed that. Bit of force in there, perfectly reasonable challenge.

:31:54.:31:56.

Elneny isn't happy about it but it was a clean tackle. Just a little

:31:57.:32:01.

bit of a follow-through with the challenge. Bailey with the header.

:32:02.:32:38.

Well pressed by May. On loan from Portsmouth, May, a teenager who is

:32:39.:32:51.

on the way up. Amankwaah's clearance, back to Gabriel.

:32:52.:33:00.

Did well, Amankwaah. Shielded the ball nicely. Vital that when Sutton

:33:01.:33:10.

get the ball, they'll have to try and keep it for a couple of passes,

:33:11.:33:14.

whether that's a couple of short ones before going long, or playing

:33:15.:33:19.

into one of the forwards. They will need to relieve the pressure. The

:33:20.:33:23.

quality of Arsenal, if they allow them to dictate possession for long

:33:24.:33:28.

periods it is going to tire out the southern players. What's Worner, the

:33:29.:33:35.

Sutton United goalkeeper with the clearance.

:33:36.:33:46.

Sutton is getting the throw in, in Arsenal territory. Bailey in

:33:47.:33:52.

midfield keeping the ball alive, not panicking. Important, the wind is

:33:53.:33:58.

blowing towards the Arsenal goal and it's important that they don't try

:33:59.:34:02.

and force the ball too much in the air. With this kind of pitch it

:34:03.:34:08.

could run out quickly. The throw in, flicked on by Collins and Help To

:34:09.:34:20.

Buy Walcott -- helped by Walcott. Winning the youth cup with Arsenal,

:34:21.:34:26.

making his debut in the cup, Eastmond. Scored an own goal against

:34:27.:34:30.

Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League. Would have been delighted

:34:31.:34:39.

with that last bit! He's still feeling that. Colliding with his own

:34:40.:34:46.

player, landing awkwardly on one of his team-mates. A bit shaken up.

:34:47.:34:51.

He's been on a bit of a tightrope for a while, Eastmond, because he

:34:52.:34:56.

was sent off in an FA Trophy match against Boreham Wood, a three match

:34:57.:34:59.

ban as a result. Had there not been a replay, he would have been

:35:00.:35:05.

suspended tonight. He sat watching the end of the game and praying that

:35:06.:35:08.

no one would win it. Important player for them as well. Walcott,

:35:09.:35:16.

that's a good turn. Down a cross to make the block. -- Downer. Sutton

:35:17.:35:21.

free kick. Well, it was dangerous. Not a huge amount in that. The

:35:22.:35:40.

referee being a bit generous. They will have to compete physically,

:35:41.:35:42.

Arsenal, that would have been made clear to them by Arsene Wenger. A

:35:43.:35:56.

case in point. Chance for Eastmond to cross. A decent one as well,

:35:57.:36:00.

Gomis was in the middle. Gabriel with him.

:36:01.:36:09.

Bailey getting a good foot in. Was Biamou caught out? -- caught? Not in

:36:10.:36:23.

the opinion of the referee. Down with the clearing header, May

:36:24.:36:39.

trying to help it on. Amankwaah on the left-hand side.

:36:40.:37:00.

Eight Sutton free kick and they have done what they didn't do in the FA

:37:01.:37:21.

Trophy replay against Boreham Wood and previous National League games,

:37:22.:37:26.

keeping a clean sheet after six minutes. Comfortable, allowing

:37:27.:37:31.

Arsenal possession in players that aren't dangerous, forcing them

:37:32.:37:34.

inside, tracking Arsenal runners and looking to keep control of

:37:35.:37:39.

possession when they've had it. Worner forward. Collins was beaten

:37:40.:37:43.

in the air. Beckwith happy to let that go. They will group up inside

:37:44.:37:49.

the Arsenal penalty area in front of the Arsenal fans behind goal. Five,

:37:50.:38:00.

six yellow shirts inside the area. That's Jamie Collins. Lucas can

:38:01.:38:08.

bring it away for Arsenal. The yellow shirts must retreat. Lucas

:38:09.:38:14.

looking square. These and all. Xhaka, good foot in.

:38:15.:38:22.

This is where Arsenal will be very dangerous, when Sutton have an

:38:23.:38:40.

attack, throwing people forward and Arsenal are so quick at creating.

:38:41.:38:46.

Quality from Monreal. Getting bodies back quickly and working hard to get

:38:47.:38:50.

into position. So much with on either flank from Arsenal. -- width

:38:51.:39:01.

on either flank. no great threat from Arsenal yet.

:39:02.:39:09.

This is arguably the toughest game there has ever been for Arsenal fans

:39:10.:39:17.

to get a ticket. Talking to a few Arsenal fans who said they'd been to

:39:18.:39:21.

Champions League finals, FA Cup finals, everything and couldn't get

:39:22.:39:33.

here. Only around 500 of them. The ball went off the field of play. An

:39:34.:39:40.

uninvited guest has won onto the field of play so we will have a

:39:41.:39:44.

pause while it's dealt with. 12 minutes have gone by and Paul

:39:45.:39:48.

Doswell is going to be content with what he's seen. Delighted, his team

:39:49.:39:54.

obviously listened to the game plan, working hard at it and so far.

:39:55.:39:59.

What's impressed the is that they have that composure. They've all

:40:00.:40:04.

played at a higher level and you can see there is quality in the team.

:40:05.:40:07.

Not consistency because of their league position but they've got

:40:08.:40:10.

quality and there's no better occasion for them to show the

:40:11.:40:14.

quality and that at some point in their career they've played at a

:40:15.:40:18.

higher level. Talking to Paul Doswell and some of the coaching

:40:19.:40:22.

staff and the players when they were arriving that they were extremely

:40:23.:40:28.

relaxed. A vital part of their preparation, being calm. They

:40:29.:40:33.

wouldn't need the motivation. The Arsenal players would have needed

:40:34.:40:35.

motivation in a different way, to come here and play their game. Paul

:40:36.:40:39.

was saying before the match that it was about keeping them calm before

:40:40.:40:47.

they go on to the pitch. Ospina for Arsenal who have lost three of their

:40:48.:40:52.

last four matches. Gabriel didn't get the touch. Collins, that was a

:40:53.:41:00.

bit short but he got there ahead of Lucas.

:41:01.:41:07.

Stepped up to take the penalty kick against Leeds United, Jamie Collins,

:41:08.:41:14.

and what a big moment it was and how confidently he put it away. He has

:41:15.:41:17.

subsequently missed from the spot, though.

:41:18.:41:32.

Free kick. Roarie Deacon was felled. He's a busy player. Sharp, quick

:41:33.:41:50.

feet as well and you can see he's up for the game, as he was against

:41:51.:41:55.

Leeds. Playing just behind the main striker. Finally got into league

:41:56.:42:01.

football at Stevenage, Roarie Deacon, having just failed to make

:42:02.:42:06.

the grade at Arsenal and Sunderland. The keeper, Worner, from almost the

:42:07.:42:14.

halfway line. Collins is the target. May is in support. It's going to be

:42:15.:42:21.

a goal kick for Arsenal, Biamou didn't get there.

:42:22.:42:31.

So, Mustafi to Gabriel. This picture is similar to the one on which

:42:32.:42:44.

England played a couple of years ago against Lithuania in a European

:42:45.:42:47.

Championship qualifier. England winning the game 3-0, memorable for

:42:48.:42:54.

one Arsenal player in particular, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. He is on

:42:55.:42:58.

the bench today. He's scored in that game, his fifth England goal and

:42:59.:43:05.

still his most recent. Walcott, the deflection off Collins. Good scrap.

:43:06.:43:14.

Lost it now but Amankwaah was at before the battle. -- up for the

:43:15.:43:23.

battle. One player too many. Amankwaah is playing left-back for

:43:24.:43:27.

Sutton. His team-mate Eastmond spotted the danger and broke the

:43:28.:43:31.

Arsenal break. Got the crowd going, but the crowd don't need that.

:43:32.:43:46.

Nicely back to Reine-Adelaide, that was quality. Iwobi dropping back.

:43:47.:43:59.

Wild. Elneny was right underneath it. Nice build-up, though. Certainly

:44:00.:44:08.

was. First occasional that an Arsenal player has been free down

:44:09.:44:12.

the side, good 1-2. Look at the bodies that Sutton got in the way.

:44:13.:44:19.

Wild strike from Elneny. 105 league places between them, Sutton United

:44:20.:44:25.

are 16 places below Lincoln City. Arsenal are eight above Burnley. So

:44:26.:44:32.

it's a much wider gap even than the Burnley Lincoln upset.

:44:33.:44:46.

Well won back by Downer, Monreal with his hands full. Michael Oliver

:44:47.:44:55.

is shaking his head. Eastmond was looking over his shoulder, he's

:44:56.:44:58.

going to take up with Michael Oliver now. Inconsistency by Saddam.

:44:59.:45:04.

Eastmond was never really in control of the ball, getting lucky with the

:45:05.:45:07.

ball going through the legs of Monreal. Not a penalty. Iwobi

:45:08.:45:17.

forward terrain Adelaide. -- to Reine-Adelaide. Cleared by Beckwith.

:45:18.:45:27.

Good block by Nicky Bailey. Trying to get some real momentum going

:45:28.:45:37.

here, Arsenal. Yet to really do that in the game. Perhaps understandable

:45:38.:45:42.

as they get used to the surface. Can't find Walcott. Amankwaah is

:45:43.:46:07.

there, and that is a good ball well covered by Mustafi for Arsenal.

:46:08.:46:14.

Starting to get a bit of a patent Arsenal's play. That left hand side

:46:15.:46:17.

is an opportunity for them to get in. Should Sutton win this, which

:46:18.:46:27.

obviously is unlikely, but cannot be written off at the stage for sure,

:46:28.:46:32.

then we would be guaranteed a non-league side in the semifinals of

:46:33.:46:34.

the FA Cup. Holding has given it away to Deacon.

:46:35.:46:51.

Looking to take on Monreal. Holding is relieved because he gave it away,

:46:52.:46:53.

and gave it away cheaply. Collins. Bailey does a good job,

:46:54.:47:13.

number 16 for Sutton, just sitting in front of that back four. That is

:47:14.:47:17.

a free kick. Middlesbrough once paid the thick end of 1.5 million for

:47:18.:47:23.

Nicky Bailey, so he knows is way around a football pitch. Excellent,

:47:24.:47:29.

confident football by Sutton. He was under pressure but in that occasion

:47:30.:47:33.

there was enough confidence to think he could turn get away from his

:47:34.:47:36.

marker or draw the free kick and he won a free kick. Another opportunity

:47:37.:47:44.

for the Sutton goalkeeper Worner to get it into the Arsenal penalty

:47:45.:47:51.

area. I really like Adam May, he played with Portsmouth before

:47:52.:47:54.

embarking on this memorable loan spell. Deacon has done well, it will

:47:55.:47:59.

be trying to track him. Deacon's Ross has gone behind. Simon Long did

:48:00.:48:06.

not have his -- had his flag up. Not lacking confidence. Backs himself.

:48:07.:48:11.

Takes opportunities, every game he plays will stop that are starting to

:48:12.:48:15.

develop that side of the pitch, for Sutton. Sutton on a couple of

:48:16.:48:21.

occasions got down the right-hand side. Balls into the box but

:48:22.:48:24.

unfortunately for them nobody in the box beat them. Mustafi for Arsenal.

:48:25.:48:37.

Reine-Adelaide, good footwork but dispossessed by is on.

:48:38.:48:46.

Xhaka. The 1-2 is on, deflection on the cross and well taken. Ross

:48:47.:49:15.

Worner. A familiar face there, Alan Pardew,

:49:16.:49:26.

who is a frequent visitor these days in his little sabbatical to Gander

:49:27.:49:33.

Green Lane. Bruce Elliott alongside, the chairman, whose grandson,

:49:34.:49:36.

Archie, was one of the mascots today.

:49:37.:49:43.

Well, you were talking about chunks of the game, Graham. 15 minute, 20

:49:44.:49:52.

minute chunks, whatever, 21 played, the first chunk achieved.

:49:53.:49:56.

Absolutely, and they look comfortable, Sutton. Always going to

:49:57.:50:00.

struggle with the speed that Arsenal move the ball, the quality of touch

:50:01.:50:04.

and the interchange. But at the moment Arsenal have been limited to

:50:05.:50:09.

sort of playing the majority of football in front of Sutton's whole

:50:10.:50:14.

team really, as you can see in this situation. They are dropping off but

:50:15.:50:17.

they are keeping tight and as long as they keep that they will be hard

:50:18.:50:22.

to break down. Monreal takes him on and give the ball in play. Lucas.

:50:23.:50:27.

That is coming to yellow shirts. May to Deacon. May continuing his run,

:50:28.:50:36.

DNA already forward. Deacon taking on Gabriel. -- Diame already

:50:37.:50:42.

forward. Disappointed with himself. Wonderful individual play by Deacon.

:50:43.:50:53.

He's positive. The quality of the ball in is poor. Needed to wrap his

:50:54.:50:58.

foot around it a bit more. I can't tell you what a wonderful day he had

:50:59.:51:02.

against Leeds United, Roarie Deacon. If you didn't see it, he was the

:51:03.:51:05.

outstanding attacking player on the pitch.

:51:06.:51:26.

A little bit of Arsenal history tonight actually, this is the

:51:27.:51:31.

smallest crowd their first team will ever have played in front of since

:51:32.:51:37.

accurate records began. 5013 tickets sold. Bailey for Sutton. Eastmond.

:51:38.:51:44.

Free kick. WHISTLE Their confidence is growing all the

:51:45.:51:56.

time. Yellow card comes out. Granit Xhaka, who is now stranger to a

:51:57.:52:00.

card, is the first recipient of one here. He missed times the challenge,

:52:01.:52:06.

in terms of gets the wrong side of the ball and it is a cynical

:52:07.:52:10.

pull-back. He would expect to get a booking for that. He has only just

:52:11.:52:18.

come back from a four game domestic ban for his second red card of the

:52:19.:52:22.

season, Granit Xhaka. Sent off both against Swansea and Burnley. It is a

:52:23.:52:27.

relatively early yellow for him. He is a combative individual. Long

:52:28.:52:35.

towards Collins again. Well won in the air, that, by Mustafi. Gomis for

:52:36.:52:42.

Sutton. Amankwaah now. Deacon back into Amankwaah. Gomis. Holding off

:52:43.:52:51.

Lucas. He did well. Roarie Deacon, Amankwaah I Headifen, just couldn't

:52:52.:52:55.

keep the ball in play. But they are not only getting more confidence,

:52:56.:52:58.

they really are looking like they are enjoying themselves out there,

:52:59.:53:04.

Sutton. That thread, taking a funeral risks, but they have to be

:53:05.:53:07.

cautious as well, they have to remember their game plan, not get

:53:08.:53:10.

carried away that they are growing into this game and then lose

:53:11.:53:15.

themselves wide open. -- taking a few more risks.

:53:16.:53:22.

Interesting to see, Steve, that every 50-50 challenge, a Sutton

:53:23.:53:28.

player Winsor stopped there was more commitment. Arsenal players are

:53:29.:53:31.

going in to protect themselves, Sutton players are going in to win

:53:32.:53:36.

the ball. There has been a few teams of repute in the FA Cup this season

:53:37.:53:39.

who have assumed that their quality would finally tell, and often it

:53:40.:53:40.

hasn't. Amankwaah forward, Deacon. Biamou to Dauda, to Bailey. -- to

:53:41.:54:27.

Downer. Beckwith, commerce climbing, Gabriel climbing with him. No foul.

:54:28.:54:35.

-- Gomis climbing custom Reine-Adelaide, back into Granit

:54:36.:54:39.

Xhaka. Theo Walcott is in the middle. Walcott hurdle, it has gone

:54:40.:54:49.

all the way in! Lucas takes the congratulations, Walcott ran across

:54:50.:54:53.

it, probably the goalkeeper but Walcott didn't get a touch, and

:54:54.:55:02.

Lucas puts in front. Misfortune for Worner. Lucas scores, Sutton United

:55:03.:55:08.

0- one Arsenal. That is how quickly Arsenal break. You can see it is the

:55:09.:55:12.

first time Sutton have thrown Burdisso Dan Lobb back quickly

:55:13.:55:16.

enough. That is a cross into a space. Excellent run by Theo Walcott

:55:17.:55:22.

as well and he has the presence of mind to let the ball go. Tries to

:55:23.:55:29.

get a little touch, actually. He misses it. And Paul -- Paul Worner,

:55:30.:55:42.

he can do nothing about that. -- Ross Worner. A little puff of the

:55:43.:55:46.

cheeks, no doubt that the last angle showed Walcott did not touch that,

:55:47.:55:51.

and I would imagine if you are on 99 goals if you do touch it you will

:55:52.:55:56.

let everyone know. It is a goal for Lucas Perez and Arsenal.

:55:57.:56:06.

Here's Reine-Adelaide for Arsenal, suddenly feeling a lot happier.

:56:07.:56:27.

Lucas, danger here, Iwobi. Monreal committee becomes, good block. The

:56:28.:56:38.

ball has not gone out of play. Iwobi laid it back and Reine-Adelaide Mr

:56:39.:56:43.

completely and Roarie Deacon has at for Sutton. Michael Oliver Luck that

:56:44.:56:49.

the spot and deemed it had not gone out. Gomis forward to Biamou, who I

:56:50.:56:55.

think was in an offside position anyway.

:56:56.:57:02.

This might have been a second. That's right, Monreal, poor first

:57:03.:57:09.

touch, the ball most funds away from him, he makes up with it with speed.

:57:10.:57:14.

Don't know what Worner was doing, it was not a pass back, he could have

:57:15.:57:19.

dived on that. Fortunately for Sutton the ball falls to his feet. A

:57:20.:57:23.

better touch from Monreal and it is 2-0. He has only ever scored twice

:57:24.:57:29.

Arsenal but here they come again, finding gaps now, Theo Walcott

:57:30.:57:33.

getting their head of Collins. He has Gabriel outside of him, Walcott.

:57:34.:57:41.

Certainly worth a go. It is one of the features of these sorts of

:57:42.:57:45.

pictures as well, the ball just sits up, you see it just bouncing when he

:57:46.:57:49.

strikes the ball. It is not a case of trying to put power on it, it is

:57:50.:57:53.

just a case of getting a clean strike. He nearly makes that count.

:57:54.:57:58.

But once again, Sutton have suddenly lost their shape and as they were

:57:59.:58:02.

getting more confident, they have lost their discipline and Arsenal

:58:03.:58:04.

already benefiting from this base opening up in areas where they can

:58:05.:58:09.

create problems. He scored in the cup final two years ago, the

:58:10.:58:16.

thrashing really, in the end, of Aston Villa. Now, can Sutton

:58:17.:58:21.

steadied the ship with a little over 15 minutes of the first have to go?

:58:22.:58:25.

Absolutely nothing wrong with the first 25 minutes. They must and that

:58:26.:58:30.

that goal affect them too much. A slice of fortune about it.

:58:31.:58:42.

His record of six FA Cup wins is equalled with Aston Villa's George

:58:43.:58:51.

Munsey, who was Villa's manager 42 years, can you believe, from 1887 to

:58:52.:58:59.

1920. In those terms, Wenger is just starting out. I was going to say,

:59:00.:59:05.

don't tell Arsene Wenger that. He is just about getting into his stride

:59:06.:59:06.

at Arsenal, by that measure. Gomis facing his own goal but

:59:07.:59:24.

finding his goalkeeper who did not quite find the connection he was

:59:25.:59:30.

looking for. Amankwaah's header hit the goal-scorer, Lucas Perez.

:59:31.:59:38.

Holding. A little bit nervous. And he comes away with the ball. When it

:59:39.:59:44.

might have fallen to Biamou, but he showed good composure. Big risk, he

:59:45.:59:48.

got away with it slightly, as the ball sat up. That wasn't a bad ball,

:59:49.:59:55.

that, by Lucas to Reine-Adelaide that he was caught slightly on his

:59:56.:00:01.

heels. Elneny has a problem here. Playing on these pictures, Graham,

:00:02.:00:06.

is it a different experience for the ankles and knees? It is, I used to

:00:07.:00:11.

hate it. They have got better, the pitches, they are much more Spungin

:00:12.:00:15.

outcome of these artificial pitches, but it is not just the toughness,

:00:16.:00:19.

the hardness of the pitch, but it is also when you put your studs in at

:00:20.:00:23.

high speed, your boots catch. So you are putting a lot more load through

:00:24.:00:27.

your joints. I had an horrific ankle injury when I was playing and it

:00:28.:00:30.

made it really difficult to even train on these. And there was a

:00:31.:00:36.

conversation about Welbeck maybe not starting or playing I should say

:00:37.:00:39.

because of his knees. That would not surprise me. Let's here from Dan

:00:40.:00:46.

Walker, who was over by the dugouts. Down here with Ian Baird, the head

:00:47.:00:50.

coach at Sutton United, took us through the first half an hour. You

:00:51.:00:53.

must have been really happy with the first 25 minutes or so. Really

:00:54.:00:58.

happy. We had a game plan and we seem to be sticking to it but

:00:59.:01:01.

unfortunately we missed the tackle in their final third, they break on

:01:02.:01:05.

us and they scored what we would say probably a poor goal for us to

:01:06.:01:09.

concede. But there is a long way to go. From our point of view we have

:01:10.:01:13.

to get the half-time at 1-0. If we do concede again, it will be a

:01:14.:01:17.

massive uphill struggle. But credit where it is due, the lads are going

:01:18.:01:22.

really well and apart from the goal we have done all right! Both you and

:01:23.:01:26.

Paul Doswell standing alongside you, shouting tight in your own heart.

:01:27.:01:30.

You can't afford to give those Arsenal players any room. In our

:01:31.:01:35.

half, her game plan, as soon as we put into it, we need to be all over

:01:36.:01:40.

them like a rash. Pulitzer -- for bits and pieces we weren't.

:01:41.:01:49.

Elneny has recovered, by the way. Giving it a fair lick up and down

:01:50.:02:08.

the touchline. Xhaka forward. Collins, strong. No prisoners there!

:02:09.:02:18.

Yes, that's a proper tackle, that, isn't it? Wouldn't get away with

:02:19.:02:24.

that in the Premier League in this day and age. It's the follow-through

:02:25.:02:29.

with his foot. He caught him all right, feet off the ground. Iwobi

:02:30.:02:37.

has done well to ride that. He was the captain of havoc and

:02:38.:02:40.

Waterlooville, Collins, when they were twice ahead at Anfield in the

:02:41.:02:52.

FA Cup in 2008 -- Havant. Liverpool recovered and won 3-2. Bailey

:02:53.:02:58.

getting a foot in. Eastmond, Holding needs to be

:02:59.:03:09.

careful and he was. Michael Oliver has said there was a foul on Roarie

:03:10.:03:13.

Deacon and it's a free kick for Sutton, they will take that. Good

:03:14.:03:17.

advantage by Michael Oliver. Challenged by Mustafi, Deacon being

:03:18.:03:24.

positive, looking for the opportunity to pass forward. Mustafi

:03:25.:03:29.

catching him there. More remarkable that Oliver didn't give the free

:03:30.:03:35.

kick for the challenged by Collins on the Iwobi. Deacon to take this.

:03:36.:03:41.

Everyone in the Arsenal half apart from the Sutton keeper. Around the

:03:42.:03:45.

back post, Collins couldn't reach it. Didn't quite get his range

:03:46.:03:52.

correct tonight. Difficult with the wind blowing behind him. When it's

:03:53.:03:58.

up in the air, it carries through. The area he's trying to hit is

:03:59.:04:02.

perfect. The trajectory was a bit high. Just takes one of those to

:04:03.:04:12.

come off, though. Yeah. Not afraid to get bodies forward from the set

:04:13.:04:18.

pieces, as you'd expect. If it's still 1-0 with ten minutes to go,

:04:19.:04:22.

then those situations become very nervous indeed for Arsenal. Nothing

:04:23.:04:28.

disastrous about the scoreline at the moment by any stretch, for

:04:29.:04:29.

Sutton. Walcott has gone through the

:04:30.:05:16.

challenge of May. Eastmond did well to close down Lucas. Coming away

:05:17.:05:22.

with it. Good appetite to win it back for Arsenal. He did well.

:05:23.:05:44.

Waving Gabriel forward. Trying to find Walcott. They can, hasn't

:05:45.:05:54.

really got anywhere to go. -- Deacon. That isn't just a heave Ho,

:05:55.:06:00.

that was a pass to Biamou, which is dealt with. Sutton, going back to

:06:01.:06:06.

the game plan, almost inviting Arsenal to try and read those balls

:06:07.:06:13.

between the lines. Intercepting. Deacon getting his head up early and

:06:14.:06:18.

looking forward. Yes, they've settled again, Sutton. 17th in the

:06:19.:06:23.

National League. Only six points above the Weligton zone, actually.

:06:24.:06:31.

-- relegation zone. One of the smallest stands you'll ever see,

:06:32.:06:36.

holding 90! I know that because I went and counted them. Did you have

:06:37.:06:42.

dejected tickets? I counted the empty seats! -- did you have two

:06:43.:06:51.

check the tickets. Xhaka driving forward, chased by Bailey. Towards

:06:52.:06:54.

Lucas but well read. Worner is typical of many of these

:06:55.:07:11.

Sutton United players, starting his career at Woking and got a break

:07:12.:07:16.

into league football, playing for Charlton Athletic. A lot of these

:07:17.:07:20.

players have bounced around, journeyman professionals, as you'd

:07:21.:07:21.

call them. Xhaka, forward to Monreal. Downer

:07:22.:07:47.

getting across. Iwobi, that came off the Sutton man and it will be an

:07:48.:07:51.

Arsenal corner, their first with only six minutes to go. He is

:07:52.:07:57.

breathing a little bit, Downer, on that side. He hasn't got much

:07:58.:08:01.

protection and Arsenal breaking forward so quickly. Excellent

:08:02.:08:05.

movement, quality, moving the ball quickly, good runs. Wasn't a player

:08:06.:08:13.

available with a red shirt. I'm pretty sure if you'd offered Sutton

:08:14.:08:22.

1-0 now, they would take it. Holding trying to get it forward, Collins

:08:23.:08:27.

with the clearance. Biamou with the header. Under pressure from Deacon,

:08:28.:08:34.

was that a foul? Free kick, Sutton and it's a yellow card for rain

:08:35.:08:40.

Adelaide, the second Arsenal player in the book. -- rain Adelaide --

:08:41.:08:52.

Reine-Adelaide. A little clip of the ankles to make sure that Deacon

:08:53.:08:57.

doesn't get away from him. Excellent opportunity, with 40 minutes played,

:08:58.:09:01.

Ford Deacon to put a flatter ball in that space, between the six yard box

:09:02.:09:12.

and the penalty spot. Deacon's radar has been slightly off so far but if

:09:13.:09:16.

he gets this right, this could be the chance they've been waiting for.

:09:17.:09:23.

Clipped towards the back post. Downer into the danger area, good

:09:24.:09:32.

idea but there wasn't a yellow shirt there. Important challenge made by

:09:33.:09:38.

Eastmond. They might still break. Walcott, not many quicker than him,

:09:39.:09:41.

certainly not in the Sutton team. Good block. A whisker wired. --

:09:42.:09:53.

wide. Took a deflection, laughed off Ajmal Ollett off, for Sutton.

:09:54.:09:55.

Arsenal breaking with purpose. Just the slightest deflection,

:09:56.:10:03.

Beckwith, going through the legs, taking it off target, to the relief

:10:04.:10:05.

of Worner. Important moments, these, for

:10:06.:10:17.

Sutton. That's a good header from Downer, commanding staff when they

:10:18.:10:25.

needed it. Gomis did no more than lump it downfield in hope. Good

:10:26.:10:31.

header from that corner from number 27, Downer. But the alarm bells are

:10:32.:10:40.

many for Sutton, the half-time whistle can't come soon enough.

:10:41.:10:43.

Lucas is in the penalty area. May has come out to close down

:10:44.:11:00.

Elneny. On the Runs foot -- wrong foot. The

:11:01.:11:22.

first touch wasn't good enough. Perfect run, just a terrible touch.

:11:23.:11:31.

Given away to Amankwaah by Elneny. Collins was there. An side, Biamou.

:11:32.:11:44.

-- onside. The last three occasions Arsenal

:11:45.:12:04.

have played non-league sides in the FA Cup they have gone on to win the

:12:05.:12:10.

competition. If they win this game they have another non-league side in

:12:11.:12:15.

the quarterfinal. Walcott, Faldo by Amankwaah. -- fouled by. Getting

:12:16.:12:24.

between the ball and the opponent. If they go on and win the FA Cup, as

:12:25.:12:31.

Amankwaah's header finds Beckwith, they would look back and say that

:12:32.:12:35.

they had a stroke of luck. It may not be comfortable but drawing

:12:36.:12:39.

non-league teams in rounds five and six isn't exactly an lucky. --

:12:40.:12:48.

unlucky. The last minute of the first half and given away, what was

:12:49.:12:55.

Ospina doing? May, wide, with three, four yellow shirts in the area. What

:12:56.:13:06.

was Ospina doing? Getting a bit of stick for that clearance. Awful,

:13:07.:13:13.

sloppy play. In that position, May on his weaker left foot. He has to

:13:14.:13:20.

hit the target. Force the keeper into a save. Sometimes its

:13:21.:13:27.

decision-making that turns good players integrate players and May, B

:13:28.:13:34.

didn't make the right call. Force is been to make a save -- Ospina to

:13:35.:13:40.

make a save. He didn't even hit the target. Six times an FA Cup winner,

:13:41.:13:47.

Wenger, winning nine trophies with Arsenal. Two added minutes. Nine

:13:48.:13:56.

trophies won, Harzand bang and Arsenal have been runners-up in 11

:13:57.:14:00.

more under his stewardship of over 20 years.

:14:01.:14:07.

I was on the receiving end of one of those victories. Six times per

:14:08.:14:17.

merely runners-up, FA Cup runners-up -- Premier League. Champions League

:14:18.:14:26.

runners-up. Arsenal have done fantastically well under Arsene

:14:27.:14:29.

Wenger but it could have been a good deal more spectacular.

:14:30.:14:37.

Lucas looking for Walcott. Amankwaah isn't going to get their ahead of

:14:38.:14:42.

Gabriel. Clipped meekly by Xhaka to Elneny --

:14:43.:14:51.

neatly. Beckwith, nice. Clipped towards

:14:52.:15:14.

Biamou, couldn't take it in his stride.

:15:15.:15:23.

Eastmond's crossfield ball was well cut out actually by Gabriel.

:15:24.:15:42.

WHISTLE Well, they're still dreaming. It

:15:43.:15:52.

hasn't gone exactly to plan for Sutton United. A hint of fortune,

:15:53.:15:57.

maybe, about the goal scored by Lucas Perez, but Sutton have held

:15:58.:16:02.

their own here. They are only one goal down here at half-time, and

:16:03.:16:07.

that is not a bad return from the first 45 minutes of this game.

:16:08.:16:09.

Sutton United 0- one Arsenal. STUDIO: The players trooped off at

:16:10.:16:20.

half-time and Sutton making a fist of it, a little opportunity before

:16:21.:16:26.

half-time. You have to remember the salaries of the combined players of

:16:27.:16:32.

Sutton works out at about 400,000, that of Arsenal is 192 million. The

:16:33.:16:38.

manager said their game plan was going out brilliantly. The 26 or 27

:16:39.:16:44.

minutes they were winning most of the 50-50 challenges and giving

:16:45.:16:47.

Arsenal at bay that I think they got a bit more excited than anything.

:16:48.:16:51.

They committed men forward and got punished on the break, a very good

:16:52.:16:54.

finish. But still in this game and they will get another chance in the

:16:55.:16:58.

second half so they have done well. Whilst it is 1-0 they are in it, but

:16:59.:17:02.

Arsenal, as you would expect, had the better chances. We have only had

:17:03.:17:07.

two shots on target, though. It was a little bit timid, a bit sloppy at

:17:08.:17:12.

times in the final third, but Lucas Perez's finish was excellent. We

:17:13.:17:16.

said before the game he has played in the Champions League, his only

:17:17.:17:18.

real start, he scored three goals that day. It comes on to that effort

:17:19.:17:22.

and a wonderful finish him but you would expect that from Arsenal. Just

:17:23.:17:26.

that cutting edge. Maybe not ruthless enough in the final third.

:17:27.:17:32.

Interesting with Lucas, his last eight stores and scored six but has

:17:33.:17:35.

only started last two Premier League games. Once here's is out there

:17:36.:17:41.

one-on-one, coming inside on the left foot, he did what you should

:17:42.:17:45.

do, actually fears that ball across the goal, aim for the far post and

:17:46.:17:49.

anything gets a touch on it, fine. But if you get it just inside the

:17:50.:17:52.

post you have half a chance of going in. He would sit in with pace.

:17:53.:17:58.

Walcott tries to nip it in. The fact that Walcott moved made it difficult

:17:59.:18:02.

for the goalkeeper. But the former knows that, Perez. Very good finish,

:18:03.:18:08.

the keeper hasn't got a chance with Walcott running across the front of

:18:09.:18:12.

him. I don't think they have done it enough, Arsenal. When Sutton commit

:18:13.:18:16.

men forward, the once or twice they have looked dangerous, particularly

:18:17.:18:20.

down the left. They have been indecent sessions, the final ball

:18:21.:18:23.

has been pork but if they keep doing that they will create more chances

:18:24.:18:28.

for sub they had their chance, Adam May, could have made a name for

:18:29.:18:33.

himself. Ospina put it on a play to him, Iheanacho what is in his head,

:18:34.:18:38.

he is just far too casual, and Adam May has to hit the target, just

:18:39.:18:42.

concentrate on hitting the target. Two good touch first. May be felt

:18:43.:18:48.

the wrong player. I have been oppressed in actually in the game.

:18:49.:18:52.

But he will be disappointed when he sees that back. He should hit the

:18:53.:18:56.

target, left foot. Don't know what the goalkeeper was doing. These are

:18:57.:19:04.

the pictures in the dressing room, they look a little bit disgruntled,

:19:05.:19:08.

no need to become a long way to go, they are still in it of course.

:19:09.:19:12.

Still fighting. Only a goal down. I suppose largely in a way because of

:19:13.:19:17.

the fact they have had a real go, and the fact maybe that Arsenal have

:19:18.:19:20.

not been at their silky best on perhaps a surface that doesn't

:19:21.:19:22.

necessarily suit that kind of football. I think they have been

:19:23.:19:28.

sloppy, at times come a two-minute touches on the ball. They have

:19:29.:19:30.

looked more dangerous when they have taken one and two touches, past and

:19:31.:19:35.

moved and got runners behind, hitting Sutton on the break. But too

:19:36.:19:39.

many touches and Sutton won most of the 50-50 challenges. When you see

:19:40.:19:43.

some of the challenges going in, you can see one or two of the Arsenal

:19:44.:19:47.

players just shying away here with the 50-50 balls. They have looked

:19:48.:19:51.

pretty dangerous down the left-hand side that won they have got to the

:19:52.:19:54.

byline, the final ball has been poor. Sutton have had a bit of a go

:19:55.:20:05.

at times. Which would expect was the this one from Eastmond on Elneny,

:20:06.:20:10.

bang. Just a little taster. You are the foreign player who has come over

:20:11.:20:13.

here to take my place and I will let you know. Collins comes out, makes

:20:14.:20:20.

the tackle. He has done excellently, the captain. It is one of those now,

:20:21.:20:23.

they will be in that second half, looking around the dressing room.

:20:24.:20:27.

They have got to just get a little bit more, maybe a moment of

:20:28.:20:30.

inspiration is enough of them. Roarie Deacon as well, look at the

:20:31.:20:33.

left-back as well, the amount of tackles he has put in, really got

:20:34.:20:37.

the crowd going. But they have to keep going, keep believing in

:20:38.:20:40.

themselves and who knows what can happen? I totally agree with that.

:20:41.:20:46.

Some tackles have been hard, but I think the vast majority of them have

:20:47.:20:49.

been fair. You've got to realise what is at stake for these guys.

:20:50.:20:54.

That is an absolute cruncher. Martin reckons that as a foul. I saw Gary

:20:55.:21:01.

would sing at that time, Kerry -- Gary thought it was a car accident.

:21:02.:21:07.

I would have been nowhere near that, you'll is! If it is going to come

:21:08.:21:13.

from anywhere for Sutton, I suspect Roarie Deacon. He has looked

:21:14.:21:18.

dangerous. He has. When he gets time and space to run at that Arsenal

:21:19.:21:22.

defence. My only criticism of him would be sad at times his final ball

:21:23.:21:27.

has been lacking. Very much like Arsenal, actually, when they have

:21:28.:21:30.

got into some dangerous positions down the left-hand side, or down the

:21:31.:21:35.

right-hand side, then their final ball has been poor. This was

:21:36.:21:43.

probably the second or third time. He shouldn't have to worry about who

:21:44.:21:48.

or where the players are in the box, just get it into a dangerous area.

:21:49.:21:53.

Four on this occasion by the bullets them down. He has great spirit, he

:21:54.:21:56.

keeps popping up everywhere, no doubt. Just the quality again, can

:21:57.:22:02.

he whip that round. You kind of calculate where you want to put it.

:22:03.:22:06.

That is just overenthusiastic, but once it settles down he could do

:22:07.:22:10.

something dangerous, second half. Still going. I think he will be

:22:11.:22:14.

replaced with his players, they have given of thing. They stuck to the

:22:15.:22:19.

game plan for a while. As he anticipated, Arsenal would have had

:22:20.:22:22.

a lot of the ball. Not done too much with it, I don't think. But he will

:22:23.:22:26.

be quietly confident that they will at least I think it one more decent

:22:27.:22:30.

chance in that second half, but can make it a tight enough of the back?

:22:31.:22:35.

We will now play a little bit of analysis of Arsenal 's chances, the

:22:36.:22:40.

fact that there are not that many. It speaks volumes for Sutton's

:22:41.:22:45.

efforts. Sutton are not being in narrative. It is a little bit of

:22:46.:22:48.

sloppiness. Arsenal should kill this tie off once they go 1-0 up. These

:22:49.:22:53.

are chances they may rue if it stays like this. He will be in there with

:22:54.:23:00.

the Churchillian speech at half-time, these players are

:23:01.:23:02.

achieving great things and they wanted to continue. If you are a

:23:03.:23:07.

lower league player, you hardly get any chances to get this far.

:23:08.:23:10.

Inspiration in the second half is what they are looking for. Arsenal

:23:11.:23:15.

should in theory with their ability, with their fitness, should take

:23:16.:23:17.

control of the game in the second half. That, as I said, I am a

:23:18.:23:22.

believer that I think Sutton will get one more chance at least, and

:23:23.:23:27.

can they take it? This is where they should be more ruthless. These are

:23:28.:23:31.

chances, could he had them that with the outside of his right foot a bit,

:23:32.:23:36.

a bit of improvisation? I might have taken that on the inside of my right

:23:37.:23:44.

foot. Martin, stop it! Certainly in training, anyway! We will have the

:23:45.:23:47.

second half shortly but first the views of some of the sell-out crowd

:23:48.:23:53.

here at Sutton. Dan Walker is on the pitch. Look at this trio, Tim Vine,

:23:54.:23:57.

who is in the studio pre-match, Alan Pardew and Bruce Elliott, about to

:23:58.:24:02.

get soaked here, Bruce. The Sutton chairman, Bruce, I know Alan is your

:24:03.:24:05.

lucky charm, you brought him down the two of the previous rounds in

:24:06.:24:08.

this competition and the team have gone through, what have you made of

:24:09.:24:13.

the first half? We have done exceptionally well. After half an

:24:14.:24:16.

hour I started to think how long, we are in with a chance here and

:24:17.:24:20.

obviously they scored. But I am delighted with how we have done in

:24:21.:24:24.

the first half, to 1-0, we are pleased with that. Alan, from a

:24:25.:24:28.

Premier League manager's point of view, it is a horrible game, a

:24:29.:24:34.

nightmare for Wenger and his team. The surface makes it difficult of

:24:35.:24:37.

course but it is just the pace of the Premier League team now and

:24:38.:24:41.

again, he just and hinges Sutton. But Sutton have done terrific, some

:24:42.:24:45.

great defending, and had a couple of moments. They have got to hope a set

:24:46.:24:49.

play or a mistake from the goalie gives them a chance, because the

:24:50.:24:53.

place will erupt if they can get a goal. Tim, you said before the game

:24:54.:24:58.

in this 90 minutes they could be the moment replayed on YouTuber for

:24:59.:25:07.

years to come. My prediction before was 2-1 to Sutton, so I will stick

:25:08.:25:13.

to that, it is going to plan. There you go, he confidently predicts a

:25:14.:25:17.

2-1 victory. What to last all need to make sure doesn't happen from the

:25:18.:25:21.

Premier League's team perspective? Not to give set plays away. That

:25:22.:25:25.

will be a key factor to keep their clean sheet that they want the

:25:26.:25:28.

night, but this game, the more it goes, the more confident Sutton

:25:29.:25:32.

become. There are one or two who are a bit nervous that they will grow

:25:33.:25:35.

into the game, so hopefully a little bit more from Sutton in the first

:25:36.:25:44.

half. Are you going for a 2-1? Yes, the first time I have agreed with

:25:45.:25:47.

Tim about anything. Probably the last time as well. If it goes wrong,

:25:48.:25:54.

don't invite Alan Pardew again, he your lucky charm. He is all right,

:25:55.:25:58.

you leave him alone. Enjoy the second half. When we talk about

:25:59.:26:04.

Saturn come everyone talks about 1989 and win over Coventry, and the

:26:05.:26:08.

goal-scorers that they, you know the names, Tony Rains and Matt Hanlan.

:26:09.:26:13.

They are here with us. Tony, not only a hero from years gone by that

:26:14.:26:17.

also a dorm and the night for Arsene Wenger. You on the door as the

:26:18.:26:21.

Arsenal team arrived. They wanted to back the coach right in and we had

:26:22.:26:26.

to clear the corridor to their security. We will show the goals

:26:27.:26:32.

from 1989. Does it feel a little bit like that afternoon to night for

:26:33.:26:39.

Sutton? We said earlier, the feel of it, the atmosphere, the way it is

:26:40.:26:42.

built up. And the way they have played, they have had a good chance.

:26:43.:26:47.

What have you made of the first half, Tony, and what do Sutton need

:26:48.:26:50.

to do to make sure they are still in this with five to ten minutes to go?

:26:51.:26:54.

They have done terrific, we are losing sight of the fact of the gap

:26:55.:26:58.

between the two sides at equality Arsenal have got. They have done

:26:59.:27:01.

terrific. We need to stay in the game as long as possible, you are

:27:02.:27:05.

right, Arsenal will get edgy and start playing the ball around. For

:27:06.:27:10.

me, it is the wide areas, Sutton have gone down and got some decent

:27:11.:27:13.

crosses in. They began with a few more players. But stay in the game

:27:14.:27:20.

at 1-0. It is a nightly dreams, who knows? The fact we are talking about

:27:21.:27:23.

it is proof enough, definitely have a chance. There will be a chance to

:27:24.:27:29.

come their way and if they take it, who knows? Great to speak to you

:27:30.:27:31.

again, guys, enjoy the second half. STUDIO: Great stuff. Lots more great

:27:32.:27:35.

sport come in the next few days. Welcome to the Premier League show.

:27:36.:28:01.

High, characters to I'm a little bit younger than you. The football ball

:28:02.:28:06.

Mike Tyson! You are the one who shouts of meal that I have. Who

:28:07.:28:11.

watches a game of football and thinks I wish I was the one blowing

:28:12.:28:16.

the whistle. We have a new signing. You haven't brought me here for the

:28:17.:28:20.

expert analysis. You told me I was better than him. LAUGHTER

:28:21.:28:27.

And Juan Mata is on the show this week. This is the final tie of the

:28:28.:28:33.

fifth round, and the quarterfinal draw was made last night. It has

:28:34.:28:37.

thrown up some decent fixtures, and I suppose the obvious one that

:28:38.:28:40.

stands out as the one at the top, Chelsea against Manchester United,

:28:41.:28:46.

Jose Mourinho back to Stamford Bridge Accenture. A very good rule,

:28:47.:28:50.

positive draw, something to look forward to. All the big teams still

:28:51.:28:54.

in it effectively and of course the non-league teams, which is quite

:28:55.:28:55.

remarkable. I suppose you could have Chelsea,

:28:56.:29:05.

Manchester City, Arsenal, Anton, though the people who support the

:29:06.:29:09.

other teams would massively disagree, but it is all set up for

:29:10.:29:13.

an exciting end of the season. Particularly when we were sat at the

:29:14.:29:17.

end of January, and the FA Cup ties, we said that teams had left players

:29:18.:29:22.

out and not respected the cup. Now we have non-league teams in the

:29:23.:29:25.

quarterfinals, we have big draws, so I feel the excitement is back.

:29:26.:29:29.

Whatever happens, we have a non-league team in the quarterfinal.

:29:30.:29:35.

Brilliant. Remarkable. For Arsenal, if they do get through, to play

:29:36.:29:38.

against non-league teams in both the fifth round at the sixth round of

:29:39.:29:42.

the cup. It says it all, the condition is alive and kicking and

:29:43.:29:46.

this year has proved it. The second half now, the next goal is

:29:47.:29:50.

absolutely massive. It could get nervy farcical out there. As the

:29:51.:29:54.

game goes on, they have done nothing wrong at all, Sutton, they just do

:29:55.:30:02.

what they do and it could change. Arsenal will want to kill the game

:30:03.:30:05.

off. They want to try. They are 1-0 up in an entertaining first half. If

:30:06.:30:13.

football still has a place among the superstars, Gander Green Lane is the

:30:14.:30:19.

place was top Monreal with his hands full. Michael Oliver is shaking his

:30:20.:30:22.

head, it has gone all the way. Lucas put Arsenal in front. Iwobi, and a

:30:23.:30:29.

whisker wide. What was Ospina doing? May wide.

:30:30.:30:36.

The two teams coming out for the second half. Oxlade-Chamberlain has

:30:37.:30:43.

come on for Elneny. Obvious change for Arsenal. Don any was injured in

:30:44.:30:50.

the first half. Let's go back to Graeme Le Saux and Steve Wilson for

:30:51.:30:55.

confirmation of that. -- Elneny was injured. COMMENTATOR: At the moment,

:30:56.:31:01.

Lincoln City are going to Arsenal, if that is the quarterfinal tie that

:31:02.:31:06.

Arsenal will be looking for revenge for the defeat back in March, March,

:31:07.:31:15.

1915, the last time they played! Oxlade-Chamberlain is coming on and

:31:16.:31:20.

Elneny, off. Sutton United aren't out of this and if they can somehow

:31:21.:31:26.

get through and face Lincoln in the quarterfinal then a non-league team

:31:27.:31:30.

would be in the semifinals for the first time since 1912 when Swindon

:31:31.:31:34.

were beaten in a replay in the semifinal at Barnsley, in 11 days

:31:35.:31:43.

before the Titanic sank. Sutton United will get the second half

:31:44.:31:47.

under way, from left to right, in yellow with Arsenal leading thanks

:31:48.:31:52.

to that Lucas Perez goal, in the red and white. Oxlade-Chamberlain is the

:31:53.:31:58.

change, Xhaka and Reine-Adelaide are on yellow cards. Collins launching

:31:59.:32:06.

one towards Biamou who won the header. Another header from Downer,

:32:07.:32:17.

well won. Downer for the third time. Biamou is offside.

:32:18.:32:25.

Good movement from Biamou there. Nearly got away with it in terms of

:32:26.:32:38.

the timing of his run, Arsenal's line just about holding up. I think

:32:39.:32:41.

you'll see more of that in the second half. Sutton are chasing the

:32:42.:32:46.

game, playing against the wind, so the ball is going to hold up a bit.

:32:47.:32:51.

Against Beech they didn't hold back in terms of getting the ball behind

:32:52.:32:56.

their defence and I expect the same now -- against Leeds. They deserved

:32:57.:33:05.

victory against Leeds. Eastmond forward, Biamou isn't offside.

:33:06.:33:11.

Holding back to Ospina. Holding did well, under pressure from Biamou,

:33:12.:33:20.

who is no slouch. There was a moment when you could see Ospina looking a

:33:21.:33:26.

bit nervous as he was chasing that as it was a high ball back from

:33:27.:33:37.

Holding. Interesting seeing the old footage of the game against Coventry

:33:38.:33:43.

in 1989, how muddy the pitch was. It was a third round tie, January.

:33:44.:33:51.

Would you rather play on the plastic pitch or a muddy pitch? Good

:33:52.:33:58.

question. Behind by Beckwith, Arsenal corner. He's missed their

:33:59.:34:05.

last six games, Dean Beckwith, with a hamstring injury.

:34:06.:34:17.

Iwobi's corner, towards Mustafi, headed out by Collins and then

:34:18.:34:20.

Downer. Xhaka, nicely to Lucas.

:34:21.:34:33.

Reine-Adelaide, who hasn't been a big influence on the game, the

:34:34.:34:34.

youngster. Oxlade-Chamberlain, nicely disguised

:34:35.:34:52.

ball but he didn't fool Collins, who made the clearance. Nice touch. Good

:34:53.:35:00.

linkup play. Oxlade-Chamberlain, coming on for Elneny, playing in the

:35:01.:35:05.

central midfield. Walcott giving Oxlade-Chamberlain the little thumbs

:35:06.:35:09.

up. Movement from Walcott, crossing the goal. The goal that Perez scored

:35:10.:35:17.

in the first half, the movement made him difficult to track. You must

:35:18.:35:23.

make sure you communicate. What do you make of Oxlade-Chamberlain in

:35:24.:35:28.

that more defensive midfield role that he's played a sometimes lately

:35:29.:35:34.

for Arsenal? Didn't go well in Munich, at fault for the fifth goal

:35:35.:35:37.

but I think it's position that Arsene Wenger sees as being the

:35:38.:35:43.

future for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. I think with the pacey has and his

:35:44.:35:47.

ability in wide areas I'd rather see him being used further up the field.

:35:48.:35:55.

Rain delayed, taking it away from Eastmond. -- Reine-Adelaide.

:35:56.:36:07.

Very strong challenge from Collins again. I think we've seen already in

:36:08.:36:15.

the opening four minutes of the second half that Oxlade-Chamberlain

:36:16.:36:20.

gives a bit more crispness and accuracy and imagination to their

:36:21.:36:23.

passing from midfield. Creative player, isn't he? Couple of passes

:36:24.:36:29.

we've seen already, direct, hitting them firmly. I don't doubt his

:36:30.:36:38.

technical ability, I just think when you have a creative player who is so

:36:39.:36:42.

good one against one, you've got to get the most out of them.

:36:43.:36:52.

There he is, Alexis Sanchez. Wide-eyed and ready, from the look

:36:53.:37:02.

of it. I get the impression that he's always ready. That's a death

:37:03.:37:10.

stare, isn't it? A combined back four of 134, I don't think they'd

:37:11.:37:17.

enjoyed Sanchez coming on later although maybe they would enjoy it

:37:18.:37:22.

because later they could say in their dotage that they played

:37:23.:37:22.

against Alexis Sanchez. Rocking chair moments, as Joe Royle

:37:23.:37:29.

calls them. Awkward bobbling one. Strong

:37:30.:38:05.

challenge from Downer. Oxlade-Chamberlain again. Saw the

:38:06.:38:10.

pass but he didn't completed. Great opportunity there. The ball fell

:38:11.:38:17.

nicely to him. You can see Walcott here just on the D and if that pass

:38:18.:38:24.

got through it would be one-on-one against the keeper. If you don't see

:38:25.:38:29.

it, you won't deliver it and Oxlade-Chamberlain certainly does

:38:30.:38:33.

the edge. The question is, did you see it? No, that's why I'm standing

:38:34.:38:44.

up here! Monreal, well won. Great turn, Gomis. Couldn't quite get the

:38:45.:38:48.

shot away. Well covered by Oxlade-Chamberlain but great stuff

:38:49.:38:54.

from Gomis. Good challenge from Bailey. Sutton have kicked into

:38:55.:38:59.

gear. Gomis can't quite reach it, such a shame. Great stuff. Gomis,

:39:00.:39:06.

good footwork. Sprang to life, didn't he, here. He's got more

:39:07.:39:13.

urgency to win the ball back, turning onto his right that, nearly

:39:14.:39:17.

getting away but the Arsenal players crowding him out. He used to play in

:39:18.:39:25.

Spain with Almeria, Gomis, and briefly for Southend United.

:39:26.:39:38.

Collins, probably got a shout to leave that.

:39:39.:39:54.

Arsenal's last game in front of 70,000 at the Allianz Arena.

:39:55.:40:15.

Paul Doswell will be at Wembley next weekend following his beloveds

:40:16.:40:23.

Southampton in the EFL Cup final against Manchester United.

:40:24.:40:41.

Well cut out, well read by Beckwith. Giving away by Eastmond, who hasn't

:40:42.:40:53.

done much wrong. Iwobi stepping away from May, Collins snapping at his

:40:54.:40:57.

heels. Bailey giving it away to Gabriel. Arsenal are beginning to

:40:58.:41:05.

knock ever harder on Sutton's door. Lucas, well worked. Good chance,

:41:06.:41:12.

great chance and 100 is up for Theo Walcott in Arsenal red and white.

:41:13.:41:17.

That's his century for the club and that is surely Arsenal through to

:41:18.:41:23.

the quarterfinals of the FA Cup. Because it is Sutton United, zero,

:41:24.:41:33.

Arsenal, two and that was quality. Very well worked goal by Arsenal.

:41:34.:41:38.

Playing narrow through the lies of the pitch and Monreal, excellent run

:41:39.:41:45.

-- through the line. Excellent delivery, Walcott not racing towards

:41:46.:41:50.

the goal, keeping in a decent area. Simple finish for him in the end.

:41:51.:41:57.

Theo Walcott in his 370th game for the club scoring his 100th goal. The

:41:58.:42:13.

longest serving current player. If you can be hypercritical of Sutton

:42:14.:42:15.

knew could say that their full-back could have stayed with him. Lovely

:42:16.:42:24.

ball, Beckwith did well. Lucas was in otherwise but for that touch to

:42:25.:42:25.

the keeper. Did that go out of play? I thought

:42:26.:42:42.

it had. Gabriel making a manful effort to

:42:43.:43:19.

reach it but never looked likely. They're going to have to really dig

:43:20.:43:25.

in now, Sutton, and throw everything at this, be more direct, try and get

:43:26.:43:30.

bodies forward to try and support the armoured and upfront, who's a

:43:31.:43:35.

bit isolated. -- support Biamou. Hasn't been lucky in his career with

:43:36.:43:41.

injuries, Walcott, so it is quite a milestone. 100 goals, considering he

:43:42.:43:45.

doesn't play down the middle anything as like as he would like to

:43:46.:43:50.

-- anything as often as you'd like to. May is in here! Into the gloves

:43:51.:43:54.

of Ospina. May was very unselfish. If the home fans needed a lift, that

:43:55.:44:12.

might have been it. The offside flag is up against Oxlade-Chamberlain.

:44:13.:44:16.

Great opportunity for Sutton to get one back. You wonder if May could

:44:17.:44:24.

have been more selfish. Good work again by Gomis. On his right foot,

:44:25.:44:30.

maybe closed down too quickly by the Arsenal player, I think it's

:44:31.:44:35.

Mustafi. I wonder if the chance he snatched at in the first half was in

:44:36.:44:38.

his mind, when perhaps others were better placed and he didn't want to

:44:39.:44:41.

make the same mistake again. That's a bad ball, cut out by

:44:42.:44:57.

Walcott. Bailey doing well. Coming to Lucas. The goalkeeper, Worner,

:44:58.:45:00.

doing very well. Arsenal throw in. Good to see that

:45:01.:45:20.

Sutton are throwing a couple of bodies forward, May and Eastmond are

:45:21.:45:26.

trying to join up with the Armero. There he is, Alexis Sanchez --

:45:27.:45:31.

Biamou. He has scored 20 goals this season and the centre of much

:45:32.:45:36.

activation about his future and his mood after the debacle in Munich.

:45:37.:45:52.

Well read by Oxlade-Chamberlain. Here's Deacon, Biamou in the middle.

:45:53.:46:05.

May getting forward. Gomis getting forward. Two, three step overs, and

:46:06.:46:13.

a good cross, just too high for Biamou. Behind by Monreal. Brilliant

:46:14.:46:17.

stuff from Roarie Deacon, that is what he can do. A moment of quality

:46:18.:46:22.

with the ball in the box, and you have to say that is excellent

:46:23.:46:24.

offending by Monreal, good disciplined work. Great stuff from

:46:25.:46:33.

Roarie Deacon who is chatting to the crowd here for more nice as he

:46:34.:46:39.

prepares to take this corner kick, Sutton's first of the game. They

:46:40.:46:42.

often have a late run out of the back post at corners for stop and it

:46:43.:46:49.

goes from Deacon. Up goes Collins! Well, there are the two big chances

:46:50.:46:58.

in the space of a minute. And he has it. What an opportunity this is,

:46:59.:47:05.

Ospina is all over the place of his ball comes into the box. Good

:47:06.:47:11.

strength by Collins, keeps his eye on the ball and just can't directed

:47:12.:47:18.

downwards. Ospina. You could argue that Bailey could have been found in

:47:19.:47:24.

Ospina but I don't think it would have been given, if it had gone in.

:47:25.:47:30.

I mean the foul, not the goal, I think the goal would have been

:47:31.:47:31.

given. There is a man with a medal or two,

:47:32.:47:44.

Arsenal's record ever appearance maker, David O'Leary, who finished

:47:45.:47:49.

his Arsenal career with an FA Cup winner's medal in 1993. Remember

:47:50.:47:56.

Andy Linighan, wasn't it, in the 120th minute against Sheffield

:47:57.:48:07.

Wednesday. May for Sutton. Shut out by Gabriel. Walcott. They have been

:48:08.:48:20.

excellent, the two centre-backs for Sutton, Beckwith and Collins. They

:48:21.:48:33.

have a good stand between them. -- good understanding. Biamou with a

:48:34.:48:37.

flick on, Gomis off after it, Gabriel just juggling a little bit.

:48:38.:48:57.

Bailey, you could see the idea, it was to find down. Cut out by Iwobi.

:48:58.:49:11.

-- it was to find Simon Downer. Reine-Adelaide.

:49:12.:49:21.

Gabriel charging in behind that never going to Richard. Any ball

:49:22.:49:26.

like that as we saw in the first half will always run out. You have

:49:27.:49:30.

to credit Arsenal, though, before the game were talking about how

:49:31.:49:33.

difficult this tie could be, especially mentally. They have

:49:34.:49:37.

handled the game with great professionalism, they have looked

:49:38.:49:40.

sharp, they have moved the ball quickly. They have come up against a

:49:41.:49:42.

tough opponent. Collins to Bailey. Won by

:49:43.:50:06.

Oxlade-Chamberlain. Lucas Perez has taken on and left Beckwith.

:50:07.:50:08.

Oxlade-Chamberlain and Walcott are in the middle. Lucas. Good ball.

:50:09.:50:14.

Amankwaah managed to get himself in front of Theo Walcott, and did

:50:15.:50:16.

really well to do so. Monreal, Oxlade-Chamberlain. And

:50:17.:50:23.

again. Lucas, good fit. -- good hit. A firm

:50:24.:50:55.

hit, not a particularly well directed one. Once again, good work

:50:56.:51:02.

by Arsenal, moving the ball, changing positions. Lucas has a wild

:51:03.:51:10.

strike in the end, the power, no accuracy. This is an excellent

:51:11.:51:15.

clearance by Amankwaah, learn from the earlier error where he did not

:51:16.:51:18.

track Walcott. Was not going to let him have any space, on that

:51:19.:51:25.

occasion. Arsenal don't play again for another 12 days. They were due

:51:26.:51:29.

to play Southampton next weekend, but they are at Wembley in that

:51:30.:51:34.

aforementioned EFL Cup final. So plenty of recovery time for Arsenal,

:51:35.:51:41.

before they go to Anfield in their next Premier League encounter.

:51:42.:51:44.

Here's Deacon! He has smashed the bar, nearly broke the bar! Not only

:51:45.:51:53.

did he hit it from 25 yards, he had it so well in rebound 25 yards!

:51:54.:51:57.

Iwobi charging through the middle. Granit Xhaka.

:51:58.:52:11.

Lucas Perez stepping away from Bailey, turning it square. Well out

:52:12.:52:16.

by Collins, because Walcott might have had a tap in.

:52:17.:52:24.

Here's Biamou. If Sutton do get a goal, you cannot say that they would

:52:25.:52:31.

be flattered by it, because they have had three or four chances, now.

:52:32.:52:36.

What a hit. The strike was one thing but the build-up play was

:52:37.:52:38.

exceptional to get into that position. And he hit that ball so

:52:39.:52:48.

clearly. It is a perfect strike. It comes back off the meat of the

:52:49.:52:51.

crossbar. Ospina is just there watching. Like the spectators behind

:52:52.:52:57.

the goal. He was not going to get anywhere near it. A wonderful

:52:58.:53:02.

strike, Roarie Deacon is very unlucky. The former Arsenal reserve

:53:03.:53:13.

team player. Strikes me as not a bad tally, but not good enough to keep

:53:14.:53:15.

him at the club. Covered by May, but at the expense

:53:16.:54:13.

of an Arsenal throw in. Getting ready is Bradley Hudson-Odoi. And

:54:14.:54:21.

U21 international for Ghana. The winger who is fit again after a calf

:54:22.:54:24.

injury. Had a loan spell at Maidstone. It goes the way of

:54:25.:54:38.

Saturn, the decision. -- the way of Sutton.

:54:39.:54:44.

A no-win situation really for Arsene Wenger. But at least they may not be

:54:45.:54:52.

too much to gain but at least he is avoiding the massive amount there

:54:53.:54:56.

was to lose. I think it says a lot about the mentality of the players

:54:57.:54:59.

from the start of the match, the Arsenal players have looked focused.

:55:00.:55:05.

Sutton have been a tough opponent. They have caused Arsenal are a few

:55:06.:55:10.

problems. Collins again. Nicky Bailey. Oxlade-Chamberlain to

:55:11.:55:21.

Reine-Adelaide, blocked by Bailey. A good run, this, by

:55:22.:55:26.

Oxlade-Chamberlain. Collins. Oxlade-Chamberlain in behind, they

:55:27.:55:29.

are queueing up in the middle but he couldn't find Theo Walcott. Iwobi,

:55:30.:55:35.

Lucas Perez, Theo Walcott all there. Everything about that was great from

:55:36.:55:38.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, until the final ball. It is the speed that gets

:55:39.:55:46.

under way from tiring Sutton team. The ball is actually disappointing.

:55:47.:55:50.

Complete lack of quality with that ball in. It was a simple ball across

:55:51.:55:56.

the box. It would have been another tap in for Walcott. Dean Beckwith

:55:57.:56:06.

coming off, not a massive surprise. Beckwith is off.

:56:07.:56:15.

And Spence comes on. And he will play at right back. Simon Downer

:56:16.:56:24.

will move from their back to centre-half, which she will be very

:56:25.:56:25.

comfortable with. So Dan Spence on. Dan Spence, one of

:56:26.:56:44.

those players interesting history, he spent 18 months at Glen Hoddle's

:56:45.:56:48.

Academy in Spain, for those players who have fallen through the net. He

:56:49.:56:59.

was originally at Reading. He is. Spence with the ball into the box.

:57:00.:57:06.

May arriving. Ospina came. It is a foul on Oxlade-Chamberlain. Almost

:57:07.:57:09.

the perfect introduction for the right back, Spence. What a ball in

:57:10.:57:16.

that was. In amongst the smoke bomb, Ospina had the bomb out to reach

:57:17.:57:23.

this. It was an excellent ball. Going away from Ospina forced to

:57:24.:57:26.

does well as the ball travelling away. They has got his eyes on the

:57:27.:57:31.

goal. This is it. Ospina gets a decent punch on it. Adam May, who

:57:32.:57:38.

had those two sites of Arsenal 's goal, comes off, and Bradley

:57:39.:57:47.

Hudson-Odoi comes on in his place. With 20 minutes to play,

:57:48.:58:01.

Hudson-Odoi. He gets 20 minutes. And he will play wide out on the

:58:02.:58:03.

left-hand side. Good challenge by Bailey. Hudson boy

:58:04.:58:41.

tried to be a little bit too adventurous full stop --

:58:42.:58:44.

Hudson-Odoi. Dan Spence. So Alexis sent shares is going to

:58:45.:59:34.

come on. Maitland-Niles, also. Reine-Adelaide is the first man

:59:35.:59:42.

coming off for Arsenal. Just below us, Simon Downer, who is now

:59:43.:59:44.

centre-back, just doing a few extra stretchers. Yeah, they are beginning

:59:45.:59:52.

to feel it, I would imagine. Alex Iwobi is also going to come. So

:59:53.:00:00.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles comes on, a youngster, 19-year-old from Ilford.

:00:01.:00:03.

Had a good loan spell at Ipswich. This will be his tenth appearance in

:00:04.:00:09.

Arsenal 's first team. That is his introduction. The second Arsenal

:00:10.:00:18.

change will need no introduction. Here comes Alexis Sanchez. Iwobi has

:00:19.:00:22.

made way. WHISTLE Talk about Downer stretching because

:00:23.:00:36.

he knew that Sanchez was coming on. Collins with the flick on.

:00:37.:00:41.

Oxlade-Chamberlain is under it. Maitland-Niles, straight into action

:00:42.:00:48.

for Arsenal. Can play centre midfield or right back actually.

:00:49.:00:51.

Centre midfield today. Gomis, showing that lovely footwork

:00:52.:01:04.

earlier. Decent ball into the box. Good delivery twice from Spence.

:01:05.:01:12.

Michael Oliver is happy for Arsenal to continue.

:01:13.:01:23.

Xhaka, almost dispossessed by Eastmond.

:01:24.:01:34.

Nicely to Oxlade-Chamberlain. Sanchez wanting the return, it came

:01:35.:01:39.

off Downer to Lucas. Give it to Sanchez, the Arsenal fans

:01:40.:01:51.

are calling. Biamou with the little flick, it was

:01:52.:02:14.

a good one. Deacon, running at Monreal.

:02:15.:02:22.

The backheel didn't come off from Monreal. Done well, Spence. Couple

:02:23.:02:36.

of decent balls into the box. I have to say that you think these guys are

:02:37.:02:42.

training twice a week and that's it, their fitness levels, they've done

:02:43.:02:47.

ever so well to keep going. 15 minutes to go, they'll be feeling it

:02:48.:02:51.

now, for sure. Nevertheless they won't want to come off because this

:02:52.:02:55.

is probably a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Sanchez, looking well

:02:56.:03:03.

offside but not given. Downer made the challenge and Amankwaah, the

:03:04.:03:11.

second one. Gomis, nice little move, but the pass was overhit from Gomis

:03:12.:03:15.

which was a shame. Gomis has won it from

:03:16.:03:30.

Oxlade-Chamberlain. Trying to find Biamou. Away by Holding for the

:03:31.:03:37.

throw. Oxlade-Chamberlain holding his hands in the air in apology.

:03:38.:03:43.

Gomis doing well to nick the ball off him, it was a good ball through

:03:44.:03:47.

as well. Holding wasn't sure what the keeper was doing, deciding to

:03:48.:03:55.

take things into his own hands and doing the safe option. I think

:03:56.:03:58.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has played exceptionally well in the

:03:59.:04:03.

second-half but that was big error. Collins didn't quite make the header

:04:04.:04:11.

needed to Gomis. Maitland-Niles, to safety. Downer watching it carefully

:04:12.:04:17.

and dealing with it. Arsenal's record FA Cup win, by the

:04:18.:04:40.

way, 11th-1 against Darwin. I don't think there was ever much chance of

:04:41.:04:46.

them frightening that, especially now -- threatening that. That was

:04:47.:04:48.

1932. Collins, giving it away to Walcott.

:04:49.:05:00.

Walcott skipping away from Eastmond, but not from Collins. Nice flick,

:05:01.:05:08.

Eastmond over the top. Joining the attack. Stretching to try and win it

:05:09.:05:14.

from Gabriel. Maitland-Niles tidying up for Arsenal, who have dealt with

:05:15.:05:19.

that little flutter of nervousness. Sanchez chasing his own pass that

:05:20.:05:34.

had evaded Lucas and its an Arsenal corner. Sutton considering a third

:05:35.:05:46.

change for a while, the substitute Dan Fitchett, a striker, has sat

:05:47.:05:49.

back down. Not coming on when there's a corner to defend. Xhaka's

:05:50.:05:58.

Corner, that's a good header from a Bailey.

:05:59.:06:33.

The Sutton United Assistant Manager can be heard barking destruction is

:06:34.:06:40.

out, Ian Baird, the former Southampton and Leeds man, this

:06:41.:06:47.

system here. Trying to get them up the pitch, Steve, keep them going.

:06:48.:06:50.

-- the assistant year. That's a good ball, Lucas won't

:06:51.:07:14.

reach it. Walcott wanting the return.

:07:15.:07:40.

Dangerous. Worner getting down well to his left.

:07:41.:07:53.

Lovely feet, Alexis Sanchez, going for the chip. Lovely idea. Couldn't

:07:54.:08:04.

convert. This is audacious, this attempt. Excellent take bite Sanchez

:08:05.:08:09.

as the ball is played to him. Trying to stand it up to the far post.

:08:10.:08:14.

Oxlade-Chamberlain's effort. Worner does well because that goes through

:08:15.:08:21.

a couple of bodies. Dan Fitchett, coming on for the last nine minutes,

:08:22.:08:27.

plus added time. He's a striker, Fitchett. Formerly of Wycombe and

:08:28.:08:34.

Aldershot. Last season became the first Sutton United player to score

:08:35.:08:38.

more than 20 goals in a league season, in 15 years. Coming on for

:08:39.:08:46.

Biamou. It was a promotion season for Sutton, this time last year they

:08:47.:08:52.

played in the National League South. That is Wayne Shaw, the goalkeeping

:08:53.:09:00.

coach, and substitute goalkeeper. If Worner is injured, Wayne Shaw will

:09:01.:09:04.

come on. I think Sutton have made their changes and Wayne Shaw has

:09:05.:09:13.

decided that now is the time... To get stuck into a pie, save in the

:09:14.:09:19.

knowledge that whatever happens, he won't be coming on. -- safe in the

:09:20.:09:27.

knowledge. What would Arsene Wenger say? Banned from the pre-match, let

:09:28.:09:34.

alone during the match! I don't know what Wenger would say, eating one of

:09:35.:09:38.

those ever, let alone on the pitch. At least he's keeping his hydration

:09:39.:09:43.

levels up. A great guy, a Southampton youth team player, he

:09:44.:09:47.

was a forward in those days. A great picture of that Southampton youth

:09:48.:09:51.

team with Wayne Shaw standing next to Alan Shearer.

:09:52.:09:58.

That was Jamie Collins pushing Alexis Sanchez over. Michael Oliver,

:09:59.:10:10.

under Premier League rules might well book Jamie Collins for that but

:10:11.:10:14.

under these circumstances he's going to let the southern captain off. A

:10:15.:10:18.

bit silly. He gave him a pass, the referee was very generous. -- Sutton

:10:19.:10:26.

captain off. Nice to see a centre-half wedding to

:10:27.:11:01.

go forward but he lost the ball. -- willing to go forward. Fitchett

:11:02.:11:07.

having his shirt pulled by Maitland-Niles. Across the face of

:11:08.:11:12.

goal. Fitted watched it, couldn't reach it but it is a corner. -- Dan

:11:13.:11:16.

Fitchett watched it. He could have got on the end of it. It was a poor

:11:17.:11:25.

pass, Holding from midfield into defence. If Dan Fitchett had taken

:11:26.:11:28.

the chance, he could have got a goal back. If they were to get one now,

:11:29.:11:37.

five minutes plus added time to go, suddenly Arsenal are back out of

:11:38.:11:44.

their comfort zone. But it's a big if. Deacon with the corner kick,

:11:45.:11:48.

Collins at the back post again and that's where it goes. Collins has

:11:49.:11:57.

done the Leeds gone down, it could be his knee or crab. -- Collins has

:11:58.:12:01.

gone down. Xhaka forward, that was a poor ball,

:12:02.:12:15.

Eastmond in the way for Sutton. Collins is consumed by cramp. Dan

:12:16.:12:23.

Fitchett mistimed his job and handled it inadvertently. You'd

:12:24.:12:30.

never know that Sutton's manager Paul Doswell was a Southampton fan,

:12:31.:12:36.

would you? Two of the greats, Laurie McMenemy, the last manager to win a

:12:37.:12:40.

major trophy for Southampton, in 1976, beating Manchester United, and

:12:41.:12:49.

Bobby Stokes scoring, 1-0. And David Coleman. They will play Manchester

:12:50.:12:55.

United next weekend in the EFL Cup final. And Matt Le Tissier. One of

:12:56.:13:04.

your lot. That's right. Downer is down with a lot of cramp. He went up

:13:05.:13:12.

for the set piece and when he landed, you could see his left calf

:13:13.:13:19.

cramping up. He can come off but they'd be down to ten men. They will

:13:20.:13:27.

work it out. That's painful. The horrible thing about cramp, it

:13:28.:13:28.

normally comes back at about 3am. He's back on the pitch. Not sure

:13:29.:13:54.

that Downer will be making many more forward runs.

:13:55.:14:05.

The ball from Sanchez which Lucas can't get on the end of. Well, it's

:14:06.:14:19.

been a wonderful, fantastic mind-boggling run from Sutton

:14:20.:14:23.

United, all the way from Forest Green Rovers back in October,

:14:24.:14:26.

through Dartford, Cheltenham, Wimbledon in a replay, Leeds United

:14:27.:14:30.

and now Arsenal. But they will be passing the non-league back on --

:14:31.:14:41.

the non-league baton to Lincoln City who will be going to the Emirates in

:14:42.:14:45.

the last eight of the cup, barring, I suppose you have to say, something

:14:46.:14:55.

extraordinary. At this stage, that's an understatement. You can't help

:14:56.:15:05.

hoping that Sutton can get one. The place would absolutely love it.

:15:06.:15:09.

That's nice, Walcott flowing over the pitch into the figure of Jamie

:15:10.:15:15.

Collins, who is played well again at the back.

:15:16.:15:28.

Here they come. Oxlade-Chamberlain, it was won by Lucas, playing it

:15:29.:15:35.

through to Alexis Sanchez. Couldn't quite take it in his stride. Scooped

:15:36.:15:43.

up towards Lucas, and put behind by Amankwaah, as Lucas, I think, was

:15:44.:15:49.

just teeing up a spectacular volley. He had that in his sights, you could

:15:50.:15:52.

see him just getting his body ready to smash that into the net, but

:15:53.:15:58.

Amankwaah doing wet. I think that Sutton backline, they have coped

:15:59.:16:01.

with Arsenal as best they can, they have been tremendous. Hit by

:16:02.:16:06.

Gabriel, it hit Walcott, and then wide from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

:16:07.:16:13.

And I think they are going to have learned, this team, they will have

:16:14.:16:23.

learned so much this evening. Well, they have threatened to score the

:16:24.:16:27.

goal, no one more so than Roarie Deacon with that spectacular shot,

:16:28.:16:32.

which smashed back off the crossbar. He is your Man of the Match. He is.

:16:33.:16:38.

The romance of the cup. He is on the losing team but his workrate, his

:16:39.:16:44.

ability, he has been positive in possession. As you rightly say, that

:16:45.:16:47.

tremendous effort that came flying back off the crossbar. Definitely

:16:48.:16:53.

feel that he is worthy of Man of the Match. Alexis Sanchez.

:16:54.:17:09.

Let's give Arsenal credit come too. They have done everything right,

:17:10.:17:16.

from using the dressing rooms, which some said they wouldn't, to taking

:17:17.:17:23.

the game seriously, to bringing a strong team, getting Alexis Sanchez

:17:24.:17:26.

on the pitch, and most importantly for Arsene Wenger, winning the title

:17:27.:17:30.

stop that's right, the manner in which they have performed shows

:17:31.:17:33.

their professionalism, good mentality, good attitude. They

:17:34.:17:39.

haven't taken anything for granted in this game. There have always

:17:40.:17:44.

looked to create chances. They have had to be patient as well. And

:17:45.:17:50.

Sutton have provided them with plenty of problems during the course

:17:51.:17:53.

of 90 minutes. They had to do with them as well, both in and out of

:17:54.:17:58.

possession. Bailey away to Amankwaah. Amankwaah in to Fitchett.

:17:59.:18:10.

Deacon. Wouldn't sit down for him. Now surrounded by three. It has come

:18:11.:18:17.

off Monreal, it is a corner, and 5013 people, minus the Arsenal fans,

:18:18.:18:21.

maybe even some of the Arsenal fans are thinking, go on. In it comes.

:18:22.:18:28.

Headed out. Ack in by Simon Downer, and that is through to Ospina. He

:18:29.:18:35.

has done well to stay on the pitch, Simon Downer, given the cramped he

:18:36.:18:40.

had. Flag up on the far side against Lucas.

:18:41.:18:51.

Apart from the fact there is not a blade of grass here at Gander Green

:18:52.:18:57.

Lane, they have done grass-roots football proud. But one advantage of

:18:58.:19:03.

having a 3G pitch is it doesn't matter if the whole crowd run on at

:19:04.:19:08.

the end of the game, and I imagine a fair few well, because whatever the

:19:09.:19:12.

result, it is an occasion to celebrate, a cup run to remember.

:19:13.:19:17.

And a team and a manager to savour. On the term, Lucas Perez. Great

:19:18.:19:21.

block by the ever ready Jamie Collins. Alexis Sanchez.

:19:22.:19:40.

Every one of those Sutton players could be proud of the performance

:19:41.:19:44.

tonight. Paul Boswell said before the night he did not want any of his

:19:45.:19:51.

players to have any regrets -- Paul Doswell. They have been magnificent

:19:52.:19:58.

for their team this evening. Still smiling, and that is very good to

:19:59.:20:05.

see. Pride. Yep. Huge pride, and rightly so.

:20:06.:20:09.

He paid for this page, Paul Doswell. I have heard of people taking the

:20:10.:20:16.

ball home, he can take the pitch home. WHISTLE

:20:17.:20:20.

But there it is. Arsene Wenger's Arsenal are through to the last

:20:21.:20:24.

eight. The bat on his past from the non-league and the National League

:20:25.:20:28.

to Lincoln City, who will go to the Emirates in the last eight of the FA

:20:29.:20:32.

Cup. Sutton's adventure, which has taken them through the looking glass

:20:33.:20:37.

out from platform nine and three quarters and through the back of the

:20:38.:20:42.

wardrobe, has come to an end. The dreams are over, but what memories.

:20:43.:20:44.

Sutton United 0- one Great praise must go to Sutton.

:20:45.:21:04.

Terrific performance, valiant effort, 1 million miles from any

:21:05.:21:06.

kind of humiliation whatsoever at this stage of the competition. We

:21:07.:21:12.

can hear from the manager of Sutton with Dan Walker. Brendan Rogers

:21:13.:21:19.

quite a few fans on the pitch, Paul, celebrating not what has been the

:21:20.:21:26.

dream of the -- thanks. It was a dream to watch my team play against

:21:27.:21:29.

Arsenal. The quality they put out as well showed exactly what was at

:21:30.:21:35.

stake, and very proud. That is the overriding emotion. Roarie Deacon

:21:36.:21:40.

hit the bar, Jamie had a chance from six yards out and Adam had a chance

:21:41.:21:45.

from six yards out. We had three very presentable chances, and

:21:46.:21:48.

disappointed we could not get a goal for the supporters here. They saw

:21:49.:21:52.

the side that has given everything we could have given and the

:21:53.:21:55.

overriding emotion is so proud. Let's bring in Roarie Deacon. You

:21:56.:22:03.

came so close, what a shock, what an effort. We had a good bit of play in

:22:04.:22:12.

the midfield. A lovely set. I hit it and unfortunately it hit the bar.

:22:13.:22:16.

What was it like from a player 's perspective, there was a wonderful

:22:17.:22:19.

moment when Alexis Sanchez came on for Arsenal, your manager pointed at

:22:20.:22:24.

Sanchez, looked round at the crowd and laugh, you are begins to a

:22:25.:22:26.

Premier League side who in their last game took on Bayern Munich.

:22:27.:22:31.

Obviously they have world-class players and thankfully a few of them

:22:32.:22:35.

were out and playing against us. That is the spirit for us. To play

:22:36.:22:39.

against a team like Arsenal is fantastic. It was our cup final

:22:40.:22:45.

today. Exactly. These players have done it so proud, they will go down

:22:46.:22:49.

in history and this little lad here, I will publicly say it can he needs

:22:50.:22:53.

to be playing at a better level of football. I don't understand how

:22:54.:22:56.

someone has not come in from League 1 and taken him, because on his day

:22:57.:23:01.

he is more than good enough today and even more. A word about not only

:23:02.:23:05.

Roarie but the rest of your players, and these thousands of fans, who

:23:06.:23:09.

have turned up against Wimbledon, against Leeds, and followed you

:23:10.:23:12.

around the country in this amazing run in the FA Cup. The support we

:23:13.:23:21.

have had throughout has been amazing, had started 800 against

:23:22.:23:23.

Forest Green and ended up three lots of 5000 sell-outs. It is all about

:23:24.:23:26.

the players will stop they have been magnificent. So have the volunteers

:23:27.:23:29.

will stop they have given up their Sundays to sell the tickets.

:23:30.:23:32.

Everyone is a volunteer, remember that. We are not a League 2 club in

:23:33.:23:36.

the National League, we are a traditional non-league club. But I

:23:37.:23:41.

tell you what, Lincoln and Sutton have done our competition very

:23:42.:23:47.

proud. I hope every best wishes to Danny Amendola it. Go and have your

:23:48.:23:50.

data in the sun as we have had today. It is one of the best

:23:51.:23:53.

experiences you ever will have, and good luck to them as welcome why

:23:54.:24:01.

not? Very gracious of you. -- good luck to Danny and Nick. Paul Doswell

:24:02.:24:05.

and Roarie Deacon. Well done to both of them. There are

:24:06.:24:14.

some people on the pitch, you think it all over, and it is for those

:24:15.:24:19.

players. These Sutton players, but they have given us a number of

:24:20.:24:22.

thrills throughout the season, and performed to reflect leave the

:24:23.:24:28.

season. Let's put things into perspective, they are 17th in the

:24:29.:24:32.

National League. When you look where Arsenal are. The manager is

:24:33.:24:34.

absolutely right when he says how proud he is at his players, how

:24:35.:24:39.

proud he is of the area, all the support is coming along to that. It

:24:40.:24:43.

has been one hell of a run that started off in October, so it has

:24:44.:24:47.

been brilliant. Some very good individual performances. You wonder,

:24:48.:24:53.

looking at Deacon, as the game failed him almost, because he should

:24:54.:24:57.

be playing at a higher level. I wasn't sure at the beginning few was

:24:58.:25:00.

left footed or right footed. Great quality with both feet. He was

:25:01.:25:04.

really unlucky with that shot that hit the bar. One or two close

:25:05.:25:08.

efforts, particularly in the second half of it was not quite to be. It

:25:09.:25:11.

would have been lovely fall the supporters to cheer a goal. Even I

:25:12.:25:15.

was hoping he would score just to lift things a little bit. That was

:25:16.:25:19.

his left foot. He whips it across the box. Great quality on it, the

:25:20.:25:24.

defending from Arsenal in the end. This is the header from Collins. He

:25:25.:25:28.

won't believe this. When his is it later. He was excellent as well. He

:25:29.:25:36.

was. Macau he rises, just can't edit on target. Some very positive

:25:37.:25:40.

performances out there. The manager said he was proud of them all and

:25:41.:25:45.

absolutely right. What a strike, the keeper doesn't even see it. Such a

:25:46.:25:50.

shame to stop it would have been right up there with contenders for

:25:51.:25:55.

goal of the season. A great track, and everyone deserves that tonight,

:25:56.:25:59.

we were hoping they would just get one goal, -- a great strike. Some

:26:00.:26:08.

positive performances, Gomis, May. Job done for Arsenal, it is kind of

:26:09.:26:12.

a no-win game even if you do win in a way, but they got the job done and

:26:13.:26:15.

it was Theo Walcott with his hundredth goal for Arsenal that

:26:16.:26:19.

Gildart. Good movement down the left, Monreal getting to the byline

:26:20.:26:25.

that killed it. It was kind of like relentless from them. Attack versus

:26:26.:26:30.

defence almost. It was a matter of time before Arsenal scored that

:26:31.:26:35.

second goal. It is just that they move that ball a little bit too

:26:36.:26:39.

quick for them. That is when Sutton could not cope with them. We can see

:26:40.:26:44.

Arsene Wenger celebrating. Let's hear from him.

:26:45.:26:49.

We spoke to before the game, is that a case of job done, you came to a

:26:50.:26:54.

great ground. I know you enjoyed coming in here and you will enjoy

:26:55.:26:58.

living as well. It is different to get in here, it is so crowded down

:26:59.:27:03.

there. We did the job. It is very different, I must say, on this kind

:27:04.:27:06.

of pitch. It was not an easy game, at all. We have to give them credit.

:27:07.:27:14.

Every mistake we made technically they took advantage of it, and on

:27:15.:27:19.

this pitch, every little technical movement that is not 100%, you lose

:27:20.:27:25.

the ball. They played very well. Where they better than you expected

:27:26.:27:28.

them to be, not in a patronising way? Honestly, yes. Which is a great

:27:29.:27:36.

credit to them, Arsene. Yes, of course, because it is basically

:27:37.:27:41.

division five. When I arrived here maybe 20 years ago in division five

:27:42.:27:47.

they are not as fit as they are today, they did not crop at all. You

:27:48.:27:51.

would expect them to drop much more physically. They've remained

:27:52.:27:55.

absolutely focused, organised, they had a huge desire in their game. I

:27:56.:27:59.

would say if we were not mentally prepared, we would not have gone

:28:00.:28:04.

through today. After all the questions and speculations after the

:28:05.:28:07.

Bayern Munich game, are you able to enjoy a game like this because it

:28:08.:28:12.

reminds you of what football is about. No, I don't enjoy tonight,

:28:13.:28:16.

because we had absolutely just to do the job, and you know, it is tricky.

:28:17.:28:22.

So I thought it was important for the confidence of the players, as

:28:23.:28:28.

well, and as well, let's not forget at Bayern Munich we were 1-1 at

:28:29.:28:32.

half-time and in the second half it all went wrong. So even today at

:28:33.:28:36.

half-time, we were 1-0 up and was not finished. Thank you for talking

:28:37.:28:41.

to us, enjoy another non-league side of the next round, Lincoln.

:28:42.:28:45.

Arsenal go through. Lots of great memories. And. A couple of moments

:28:46.:28:48.

to pick out. The players have said they wanted

:28:49.:28:57.

the best players on the pitch from Arsenal, so I'm sure they would be

:28:58.:29:00.

delighted to see the come on and they did not disappoint with the

:29:01.:29:04.

tackles. Something for them to remember. And that is magical. I

:29:05.:29:09.

told you he liked his pies or his burgers, didn't I? Our substitute

:29:10.:29:14.

had just come on at that point, by the way. That is it from ask a

:29:15.:29:18.

disaster that will go through but it is Sutton who will keep the

:29:19.:29:26.

memories. Good night. COMMENTATOR: If football still has a place,

:29:27.:29:30.

Gander Green Lane is that place. Arsene Wenger 's Arsenal are through

:29:31.:29:58.
