Bob Wilson calls for strong Arsenal side to face Sutton United
Feb 17 2017 by Marjorie Miles
Reeling from their 5-1 Champions League mauling at the hands of Bayern Munich, Arsenal have a nice easy game against Sutton United this weekend.
Wenger's side take on non-league Sutton in the FA Cup on Monday and, although he acknowledged the brilliance of Bayern in the second half, Doswell stressed that he does not feel sorry for his counterpart.
Arsenal travel to South London with the FA Cup nearly certainly their final hope of silverware after a disastrous run of games that has taken them 10 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea and facing a Champions League exit after a 5-1 humiliation at Bayern Munich. "I don't feel sorry for them at all because they are in the mad world that is football".
Asked by Standard Sport whether Wenger needed to play his strongest side for a decisive match in Arsenal's season Doswell added: "If he plays the team who beat Southampton 5-0 [in the fourth round] - and I'm a massive Southampton fan - then that would hammer us".
"It is not a disgrace". I know the result is going to sound poor and there is going to be an overreaction but when Bayern, Barcelona and Real Madrid fancy it, you are in real trouble. "That is a fact".
