Arsenal vs. Lincoln City: FA Cup Quarter-Final – Match Preview

Arsenal are on a hiding to nothing when they host non-league side Lincoln City in the Quarter-Final of the FA Cup this Saturday evening.

The Gunners were embarrassed again in the Champions League during the week, suffering another 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich.

In the previous round Arsenal eliminated another non-league side in the form of Sutton United, thanks to goals from Lucas Perez and Theo Walcott.

Lincoln are the first non-league side to reach the last eight of the competition in over 100 years, having stunned Premier League outfit Burnley in the previous round.

They also sit top of the Conference as they bid to return to the Football League and they opened up a six point lead at the top after a 4-0 win over Braintree in the week.
