Trip into the unknown for Arsenal against minnow
— If being routed at Bayern Munich felt uncomfortable for Arsenal’s players, the embarrassment from slipping up on the next assignment will be far greater. Arsenal has to travel only to the other side of London for Monday’s FA Cup match. Playing at Sutton United, though, will be a step into the unknown for the pampered millionaires from Arsenal, browbeaten by the 5-1 Champions League loss in Germany. The match will provide a stark clash between a 13-time English champion, packed with some of the world’s costliest talent, and a fifth-tier semi-professional team that reached the fifth round of world soccer’s oldest cup competition for the first time in the club’s 118-year history.
