Stan Collymore predicts Leeds v Sutton
By Will Butcher
Stan Collymore believes Leeds will comfortably overcome minnows Sutton United in their FA Cup fourth round clash on Sunday.
Garry Monk’s men will be looking to avoid a giant killing against National League side Sutton in front of the television cameras, as they travel to Gander Green Lane to face Paul Doswell’s side.
Posting on his personal Twitter account, Collymore believes Leeds will run out 3-0 winners against their non-league opponents and secure a place in the fifth round of the competition.
Oxford 1 Newcastle 3. Spurs 3 Wycombe 1. Southampton 1 Arsenal 1. Millwall 1 Watford 1. Sutton 0 Leeds 3.

The last time the two sides faced was way back in January 24 1970, as Don Revie’s side knocked the south London minnows out of the FA Cup with a huge 6-0 win.
Monk will be hoping his side can mirror that kind of dominance on Sunday, as he looks to embark on another cup run after reaching the quarter finals of the EFL Cup earlier this season.

However, the former Swansea boss is likely to ring the changes as he looks to rest his first-team stars for Wednesday night’s Championship clash against relegation candidates Blackburn.
Leeds have been in magnificent form of late, winning six of their last eight league games, most recently seeing off Nottingham Forest at Elland Road by two goals to nil.
Leeds will be buoyed by Sutton’s recent form, which has seen them win just once in their last six league and cup encounters as they sit in 15th place in the National League.
Currently sitting in third, Monk will be hoping his Yorkshire giants can maintain their fantastic run of form against Sutton to prolong his side’s unwavering momentum and boost their chances of a Premier League return.
