Danny Welbeck ruled out of Sutton United tie due to plastic pitch

Arsene Wenger would be turning his attention to non-league side, Sutton City for succor in the fifth round of the FA Cup after what seems to be another disappointing season for the Gunners fans.

Cohen Bramall has been ruled out from making his senior Arsenal debut against Sutton on Monday night as he is cup-tied, a reliable journalist revealed.

First he was pictured hoovering the dugouts on the afternoon of the match.

Before tonight, there was some concern that the floodlights wouldn't be powerful enough so they've called in some backup... Half of our team support Arsenal, so to go to the Emirates and have a great day out would be their preferred result. You've got to move on.

It was a circumspect start to the match as the visitors tried to adapt to the artifical surface and though they saw most of the possession, the hosts' goal was never really under threat until they fell behind in the 26th minute. Qualifying for the Champions League is certainly no foregone conclusion either with Liverpool and Manchester United closely behind them in the race for the top four.

The away side unsurprisingly dominated possession as they went in search of a second goal against dogged opposition and Alex Iwobi should perhaps have made it two when presented with a gilt-edged chance from 10 yards out, only to see his placed shot deflected out for a corner.

Just look at the facilities waiting for them...

Welbeck has only recently recovered from a serious knee injury and played for Arsenal's under-23s in a 2-1 loss to Leicester on Sunday.

Sutton won the National League South in 2015-16, therefore now competes in National League, one division below the Football League.

The winger converted Nacho Monreal's cross in the 55th minute to add to Lucas Perez's first half strike and ease the growing pressure on Wenger, who knew before the game that defeat to the semi-professional side was nearly unthinkable.

'Secondly, their enthusiasm. Thirdly if we are not ready for a big fight. "Subconsciously if we think "no matter, it's a non-league team, we will pass", that will not happen", he said. But Sutton kept the scoreline more than respectable and even came close to pulling one back as former Arsenal academy member Roarie Deacon rattled the crossbar with a fierce effort from distance. "Competition is as well to deal with what you face, and we'll face an unusual pitch and we'll have to deal with it", he said.

"My diet has got me to where I am today!" He and Martin O'Neill were the best managers I worked under.

"That would be my life story and I could probably live out on it", he told Men in Blazers. When you hate defeat like I hate defeat, it's always tough.
