It was an evening full of anticipation for fans, players and football club accountants up and down the country, and the FA Cup draw threw up some beauties!
England manager, Gareth Southgate and BT Sport pundit Robbie Savage lined up on the One Show to reveal who the Gunners would play in the fifth round.
And as Sutton United, a side playing in the National League, were drawn from the pot, there was a huge sense of anticipation from every single football fan watching the telly.
Step up, Arsenal FC. The 12 time winners were picked out by Savage to set up a cup tie that will have every single neutral fan cheering on United in mid-February.
It was a moment for Arsenal to saviour too, a trip to a non-league side will take some pressure off what is an already hectic fixture schedule for the month.
Here’s some of the best reaction from you guys:
Joking aside if we don’t batter Sutton and I see Arsenal struggling against them I’m off to live on the North Pole

Would be so typical Arsenal if we won vs Bayern at the Allianz Arena and then went on to lose vs Sutton 3 days later.

Sutton United vs Arsenal is a fantastic cup tie to show on TV, so can’t wait for the BBC to announce they are showing Man Utd again

Arsenal once beat Bayern Munich 2-0 and lost 3-0 to Sheffield Wednesday in the same week.
We have Bayern followed by Sutton. 😏

That has to be one of the very few positive contributions Robbie Savage has given this country.
