Lincoln taking on Burnley on Saturday is a fantastic tie, but mid-table in the Vanarama League Sutton United taking on the mighty Arsenal (kick-off 7.55pm) is proper ‘magic of the Cup’ stuff.

Their home, Gander Green Lane, has a capacity of just 5,000, and will be the kind of pitch that will suit Sutton, whereas the Gunners will not have a silky surface on which to play the ball on the ground, something that is bound to disrupt their usual style.

If Sutton can get a result tonight, it would surely qualify as the biggest cup upset since… well, since Sutton knocked out First Division Coventry in 1989…
