Sutton v Arsenal tips: Gunners to get back to firing form

Sutton v Arsenal tips

FootyOn pick out three Sutton v Arsenal tips for the Monday evening FA Cup fifth round battle at the 5,000 capacity Gander Green Lane ground.

Monday, February 20th, 19:55 GMT kick-off, live on BBC1.

Non-league outfit Sutton United host perhaps the highest-profile opposition at their tiny ground, certainly since then-defending Division 1 champions and eventual FA Cup runner-ups Leeds United in the 1969/70 season.

Arsenal, who have the joint most amount of titles in this competition’s history, are the top-flight team in question to travel south of the River Thames in London to take on the minnows.

History has certainly come around in circles. Sutton avenged Leeds 1-0 in the last round, 47 years after losing to them 6-0 at the same stage.

So, is that a sign that the south Londoners can go on and shock the Gunners too?

Find out in our Sutton v Arsenal tips…

Arsenal to win by 4 or more goals

Sutton have been on a gallant run. But it’s likely to end at the hands of Arsenal on Monday.

Arsene Wenger’s men will be wounded animals after being humiliated by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last time out.

And what better way to get your confidence back, by facing a club four divisions below you?

Luckily for Arsenal, Sutton are on a run of four games without a win in the National League.

So, back the Gunners to be back in firing form by scoring four or more en route to victory at 11/4 with Paddy Power.

Perez to bag a brace or better

Spaniard Lucas Perez has been used sparingly this season, but unleashed in domestic cup competitions.

The 28-year-old has played in all five combined FA Cup and EFL Cup clashes this term, and played a big part.

With two goals, both against Nottingham Forest, and three assists from those games, it looks as though he’ll get another chance up top.

He is 7/2 with William Hill to score two or more.

Lucas Perez has started every Arsenal domestic cup game this season.

Arsenal to score 2+ in first half

In a Sky Bet match special, terrific odds of 11/8 are available on the Gunners netting two or more in the opening half.

As mentioned above, Arsenal will be looking to get back to winning ways.

Plus, they’ll be buoyed by the fact that Arsene Wenger has stated he’ll not retire just yet!
