Competition: FA Cup
Market: Arsenal to win against Sutton
Odds: 1/8 @ Bet 365
Arsenal travel to the Borough Sports Ground to face Sutton United in the fifth round of the FA Cup this evening, and are big favourites to come out on top to reach the quarter-finals. With the Gunners so poor on the road of late, this clash was seen as a potential upset, but Arsenal will relish a plastic pitch more than a decaying real pitch as they can play their brand of football to full effect.
Hosts Sutton United have made in this far in the competition after beating Forest Green, Dartford, Cheltenham Town, AFC Wimbledon and Leeds United. Their domestic form has gone to pieces during their surprise cup run, suffering three defeats from their last four in the National League, but they are sure to put on a performance against Arsenal on the television cameras.
As for the visitors, Arsenal reached the fifth round after dispatching of Preston North End and Southampton, but away from home the Gunners have lost their last two outings on the road. However, both FA Cup wins came as the away side and they should be able to play their possession game with the plastic pitch being smooth for the ball to run without issue. As a result, Bet 365 are giving odds of 1/8 for Arsenal to win against Sutton tonight.
