Giant-killing Lincoln City draw Arsenal or Sutton United in FA Cup
Lincoln will host the Gunners or their fellow National League side at Sincil Bank
February 20th, 2017
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.
