National League outfit Sutton United will host 12-times FA Cup winners Arsenal in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Paul Doswell’s side produced an excellent display to overcome Championship high-flyers Leeds United in the last round, and they have been rewarded with a wonderful tie against Arsene Wenger’s Gunners, who have won the competition five times since the turn of the millennium.

Fellow non-league side Lincoln City, who currently top the National League, face a trip to Burnley in round five, while the other giant-killers Oxford United also have a Premier League away day in the form of Middlesbrough.

Championship side Wolves, who knocked Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool out of the competition, host Premier League leaders Chelsea in the last 16, while London sides Fulham and Millwall, both of whom beat top-flight opponents in round four, have been rewarded with home ties against Tottenham, and either Derby County or Leicester City.

Holders Manchester United travel to six-times winners Blackburn, while neighbours Manchester City face a tricky trip to Huddersfield Town, who are currently fifth in the Championship.

In what was an exciting draw which has generated some eagerly-anticipated ties, there was still only one place to start for most supporters on Twitter, and that was in congratulating Sutton ahead of their mouth-watering clash with Arsenal…

While many Gunners fans are looking positively ahead of the draw, with some commenting on the tale of two draws given that they’ll play Bayern Munich in the Champions League four days before their trip to Gander Green Lane…

Fellow non-league outfit Lincoln go to Burnley, which received quite an underwhelming response on Twitter…

But, all in all, the draw received a very positive reaction from many on social media, as there are no all Premier League clashes, and many top-flight sides make away trips in round five…
