Sutton United Assistant Manager Micky Stevens said he was excited about the prospect of taking on Arsenal in the FA Cup fifth round next month.
Stevens said, “I have had to come and sit down, I cannot quite believe that but we will take that. I am a life-long Chelsea fan so I had my fingers crossed for that but it cannot be much better. Craig Eastmond and Roarie Deacon have both been involved at Arsenal in their younger days and I have never seen them jump up and down as much.”
He added, “It is a fantastic draw. There is nothing going on between now and the 18th of February. We have got a couple of games but our thoughts will be directed on the cup.”
“The pitch plays to our advantage but let’s be realistic, whatever side Arsenal put out they have got players who can perform on any surface. Is Arsene Wenger suspended for that though?” he concluded.
