Arsenal V Lincoln

Saturday 11th March 2017
18:00 Kick Off live on BT Sport 2 available with GibSat

Arsenal and Lincoln City have met 26 times in their long histories. Arsenal come out on top as you would expect winning 13 times, they have drawn 7 times and Lincoln have won 6 times.

Last time they met was 102 years ago and Lincoln came out on top winning 1-0. How they would love to repeat that here.

This is the furthest Lincoln have ever reached in this famous competition and the players have a major chance at writing their names in FA Cup history.

Arsenal are the joint top winners of this trophy winning it 12 times and finishing runners up on 7 other occasions.

Arsenal have been in terrible form of late by their standards winning twice and losing 4 of their last 6. Last time out the suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat at home which made the aggregate result 10-2 against Bayern Munich to eliminate the gunners from Europe for another season.

Lincoln have been in great form of late winning 5 and drawing 1 of their last 6 in all competitions. Last time out they managed a 4-0 away win against Braintree Town.

Arsenal could be without Ozil, Welbeck and Iwobi who all seem to be suffering from a sickness.

Lincoln look like they have a fully fit squad but will be with Lee Angol who got a hat trick in midweek against Braintree as he is cup tied.

Arsenal are generally 1/12 but can be backed @ 19/200 with Maraton bet. The draw is 14/1 with a few firms including Corals and if you are hoping for more FA Cup romance then you can back Lincoln @ 33/1 with most firms but they are as big as 35/1 with BWIN.
