Sutton United have been in abysmal form lately and them beating a wounded Arsenal is unlikely for many people. Paul Doswell’s team have only won 1 game in their last 5 games. It will be a very hard game for Sutton but if the players get focused and put pressure on Arsenal early, they could take a small victory.
No injuries currently in the Sutton United squad, and we should see Doswell bring out his usual squad or might change things up for this game.
Arsenal….Well we can all say they have not been at all good lately and not only are they a wounded side but they have the extra of a wounded manager. Arsenal have lost 3 games and won 3 games in their past 5. However, This might be the time Arsene Wenger makes some changes in the team, such as dropping out of form German Mesut Ozil.
Arsenal have stated that French defender Koscielny is suffering a hamstring injury so will be out for this game.
