Lincoln City supporters will be eagerly anticipating the outcome of Monday’s clash between Sutton United and Arsenal, with the winner playing the Red Imps for a place in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Danny Cowley’s team claimed a 1-0 win at Turf Moor on Saturday thanks to a late winner and they have a fantastic reward whatever happens at Gander Green Lane, although the majority of supporters will anticipate the arrival of the Gunners.

Cowley believes the draw has thrown up a ‘win-win’ situation, saying: “You never know in football. It’s a great draw. We wish Sutton all the best and genuinely hope they can do it. If not, then we will obviously play Arsenal. It’s completely surreal.

“For us it’s a win-win. We either play Sutton for the opportunity to be in the semi-finals of the FA Cup or we have a fantastic tie away at Arsenal. It’s completely surreal. I feel like I’m going to wake up at any moment. It’s incredible but the players deserve this. It’s them that have carried us.”

Another exciting match-up will take place at Stamford Bridge where Chelsea will face Manchester United and it will see Jose Mourinho return to his old stomping ground.

The Red Devils were beaten there 4-0 earlier this season, while Millwall’s prize for beating Leicester City is a match at White Hart Lane.

Middlesbrough are likely to entertain Manchester City unless Huddersfield can win a replay at the Etihad Stadium following the 0-0 draw on Saturday.

FA Cup sixth round draw
Chelsea v Manchester United
Middlesbrough v Huddersfield or Manchester City
Tottenham v Millwall
Sutton or Arsenal v Lincoln
