Arsenal to outclass Lincoln City in fascinating FA Cup clash

Arsenal will look to bounce back from their embarrassing 10-2 aggregrate defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Saturday, but while some would think that a sixth-round FA Cup clash with National League side Lincoln City should bring a bit of positivity back to the Emirates Stadium, as they should ease to victory, there's sure to be an avalanche of negativity reverberating around North London, and it's almost a no-win situation for under-fire boss Arsene Wenger.

  • Arsenal were thrashed 5-1 to Bayern Munich in midweek
  • Lincoln City are six points clear at top of National League
  • Lincoln City defeated Premier League opposition in Burnley in the last round

Gunners Should Have Too Much For Non League Rivals

With Wenger's tenure at the club continuing to produce a toxic atmosphere, then the Frenchman will just hope to emerge from this clash unscathed, as they should outclass their fifth-tier rivals all over the pitch, and the bookmakers feel that Arsenal should cruise to victory, as they are 1/12 shots with bet365 to win the match.

However, Lincoln City have shown this season that they are a real handful for sides in higher divisions, and the National League leaders, who defeated Burnley in the last round, will really fancy their chances of toppling an out-of-form Arsenal, but as 33/1 outsiders with Betway can you really the see the Imps making the semi-finals of the cup?

Yes, they have been terrific all season, both in the league and in this competition, but Danny Cowley's side dreams should surely end on Saturday, as Arsenal look to replicate their 2-0 win over Sutton United in the last round, where they dominated possession for most points, while glimpses of quality manufactured a fairly comfortable victory.

Wenger is sure to make a hatful of changes from his woeful Champions League side, but what showed in their defeat of Sutton was the pace and quality that Arsenal's second string showed over their Non League counterparts, and that could be the case once again on Saturday, and with home advantage it's hard to see anything but an Arsenal win.
Match Odds:

Lincoln To Show Fight In FA Cup Exit

Six points clear at the top of the National League, Lincoln City are fast-approaching a return to the Football League, so it won't all be plain sailing for Arsenal, so a value bet for punters looking to have a flutter on this game is for an Arsenal win, but for their to be under 3.5 goals in the match.

Lincoln, who have recorded four clean sheets in five matches, will be tough to break down, and this match could emulate the aforementioned Sutton clash for Arsenal, with just glimpses of quality igniting a Gunners win, and Coral's 13/8 is a cracking bet in a match for our aforementioned selection.
Match Result/Goals Odds:

Arsenal To Pull Away Late On

If Lincoln can stay defensively solid in the first half then it would be no surprise to see Arsenal at most a solitary goal ahead going into half-time, and if they get a 2-0 lead in the middle part of the second 45 minutes then you have feel that will go through the motions and maintain their lead.

So, with that in mind the price worth snapping up in the correct score market is the 7/1 available with Paddy Power for a 2-0 Arsenal win, and while some punters will enjoy getting stuck into bigger prices for bigger Arsenal victories, the sensible bet is to stick with a 2-0 win for an Arsenal side, who can book their place in the semi-finals of the competition.
