Trip into the un­known for Arse­nal against min­now

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

— 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.
