Arsenal Forward Totally Ruled Out of FA Cup Clash

Danny Welbeck will not feature for Arsenal against Sutton United on Monday night due to the nature of the pitch to be used.

The English international only recently recovered from a nine-month injury layoff, so playing on a plastic pitch isn't the right thing for him.

The striker made a surprise appearance for the Arsenal U23 side when they lost 2-1 to Leicester City on Sunday afternoon and played for 70 minutes.

He made a sensational return to action in the fourth round of the FA Cup tie against Southampton as he scored a brace before Theo Walcott sealed it up with a hattrick.

Should Arsenal progress to the quarter-finals, they will play Lincoln City and by then Welbeck should get a chance.

Elsewhere, Manchester United drew Chelsea meaning one of the Premier League's top sides will crash out at the end of their meeting.
