Arsenal will meet another non-league opponent in the next round if they do secure a win against Sutton, after they were drawn against Lincoln City in the quarter finals.
The Gunners have reached this far in the competition after beating Southampton 5-0 at St. Mary’s Stadium last month, largely thanks to a hat-trick from former Saints ace Theo Walcott.

However, the north London outfit come into the game under huge pressure to put things right after being outlcassed by German champions Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern secured a 5-1 win in the first leg of the Champions League’s first knockout stage on Wednesday night, causing backlash from fans and question marks over the future of Wenger.
A convincing win against Sutton should restore some morale among the Arsenal players before they face high-flying rivals Liverpool on March 4.
Elsewhere in the quarter-final draw, Middlesbrough will play host to either Man City or Huddersfield, while Chelsea face Man United and Tottenham will play Millwall.
