We beat Sutton United 2-0 on Monday night to set up a home tie against Lincoln City in the quarter-finals of the Emirates FA Cup – and we can now confirm that the fixture will be played as under:
Arsenal v Lincoln CitySaturday, March 11, 2017Kick-off: 5.30pmLive on: BT Sport
Please note that under new FA rules, there will be no replay for this fixture and it will go to extra-time and penalties if required.
As a result of the above, our fixture originally dated March 11, 2017 against Leicester City has now been postponed.
Further information regarding our currently undated fixtures, against Leicester City and Southampton, is likely to be announced after the FA Cup quarter-finals have been played.
The same applies to our home fixture against Sunderland, which will be postponed from Saturday, April 22 if we beat Lincoln City.
We are likely to be playing in midweek fixtures in the weeks commencing April 24 and May 15, but the exact fixture details are not yet known.
