The best jokes as Arsenal play at Sutton United in FA Cup fifth round

FA Cup fever sweeps the nation.

Theo Walcott can afford to smile at the jokes from Sutton vs Arsenal in the FA Cup fifth round as Arsenal progress to the next round

This is a selection of the both jokes from Monday’s much-anticipated FA Cup fifth round tie between non-league Sutton United and Arsenal.

Arsène Wenger’s Premier League side disappointingly managed a reasonably comfortable 0-2 win at the 5k-seater Gander Green Lane ground.

But there were lots of talking points from a severely-milked day to remember covered by the BBC as cup fever swept the nation.

These are the best jokes from Sutton vs Arsenal in the FA Cup fifth round:

Looking forward to several renditions of 'we support our local team' from people who've never been to a Sutton game before tonight.

— Tim Stillman (@Stillberto) February 20, 2017

Wenger says he's worried about the state of Sutton's pitch ahead of tonight's game.

Arsene, you've got 99 problems, but a pitch ain't one.

I was dubious about Sutton v Arsenal. Yes, Chris was a great striker in his day, but taking on a whole team singlehanded? No. Not for me.

Can't wait to see how the team of plucky part-timers get on in the Cup tonight. Also looking forward to watching Sutton United.

Eastmond got a decent reception from Arsenal fans as he walked out onto the 3G pitch. He would've got a better reception if it was 4G though
