FA Cup: Arsenal stops Sutton run

Sutton United and Arsenal were going head to head yesterday evening for their FA Cup last-16 encounter at Gander Green Lane.

The home side came to the match hoping for yet another big scalp, while the Gunners were destroyed during a midweek Champions League match agains Bayern Munich.
It was an interesting question whether Wenger would field a side full of youngsters or send out a full-strength squad. The reality was closer to the latter, as Arsenal started the match with a relatively strong line-up. Altough the likes of Özil, Cech or Giroud did not even make the squad, and Alexis being on the bench, the starting eleven still included several big name players.
Sutton United started the match with their strongest possible line-up, which meant that goalkeeper Wayne Shaw, their new star, did not stand between the sticks.

Line-ups:

Sutton: Worner – Beckwith, Collins, Downer, Amankwaah – Eastmond – May, Bailey, Gomis – Deacon, Biarnou
Arsenal: Ospina – Gabriel, Mustafi, Holding, Monreal – Elneny, Xhaka – Lucas Perez, Reine-Adelaide, Iwobi – Walcott

 

The match started slowly with neither side creating serious chances. As it was expected, it was Arsenal who took control of the play, but it did not look like that there were four divisions between the two sides. In the 26th minute, Arsenal finally broke the deadlock, thanks to a curling effort from Lucas Perez. Theo Walcott tried to connect with the ball, but failed to do so, which certainly disturbed the home goalkeeper, who could not keep out Perez’s strike. During the game, Sutton United had chances to find an equaliser. First after a terrible goal-kick by Ospina, and then later in the game former Arsenal youth player Deacon hit the woodwork with a powerful strike. However it was Arsenal who increased their lead with a close range goal by Walcott.
The result did not change, it remained 2-0 to the Gunners, which means that they will now face Lincoln City at home, another non-league side.

Later in the game, it was Sutton reserve goalkeeper, Wayne Shaw who stole the show. After Sutton used all three substitutions, and it became clear that he will not feature, the 46 year-old stopper simply started eating a pie on the bench. Later he confirmed it was a joke, as one betting company offered to take bets on if he will eat a pie during the game or not. Paul Doswell, the Sutton manager, was not impressed.

Manager reactions

Sutton manager Paul Doswell:
“The support we’ve had has been amazing. Everyone here is a volunteer, remember that. We’re not a League Two club in non-league, we’re a traditional non-league club.

“Lincoln and Sutton have done our competition very proud. Best wishes to Lincoln. Go and have your day in the sun like we have.”

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger:
“We did the job. It is very different on this kind of pitch. It was not an easy game at all. We have to give them credit because every error we made they took advantage of. They played very well.

“It is basically division five and when I arrived here 20 years ago, in division five they were not as fit physically as they were today. They were organised and had a huge desire. If we were not mentally prepared we would not have gone through.”
