New UK bookmaker Sun Bets has announced that it will sponsor English National League South side Sutton United for their upcoming FA Cup fifth round tie against Premier League giants Arsenal FC.

Arsenal were thrashed 5-1 at Bayern Munich in a last-16 first-leg Champions League match on Wednesday and the shift from the Allianz Arena to playing in front of 5,000 fans in the south-west London suburbs will come as a shock.

"In sport it is about levels and none of the top six English clubs can get near Bayern, Barcelona or Real Madrid".

A draw would send Wenger spiralling deeper into crisis, though Doswell, who will hand the Arsenal boss a £300 bottle of wine when he meets him on Monday, feels that numerous Frenchman's critics have gone overboard. No", said Doswell. "He is well schooled, and he has been in the job for 20 years.

'I thought for the first 47 minutes they looked like, if not the better team, certainly on a par with Bayern. "That is a fact".

Sutton United beat Leeds United in the FA Cup fourth round and now they host Arsenal.

Doswell, 50, added: 'It is not a disgrace.

Four of the Sutton squad are ex-Arsenal, however, including defender Craig Eastmond who played alongside Theo Walcott, Cesc Fabregas and Denilson in a 2010 FA Cup tie against Stoke City.

Writing in his Sky Sports column ahead of this weekend's FA Cup fixtures, Merson backed Arsenal to avoid an upset after tipping the Gunners to ease to a 3-0 win.

"It is an open forum to criticise Arsenal and Arsene Wenger, but from our perspective we are just over the moon that they are coming here".

Sun Bets Marketing Director Barry Sage commented on the sponsorship: "We are delighted to be working alongside Sutton United in what can only be described as the biggest match in history of the club".

"If we did do it, it would be a Buster Douglas-Mike Tyson moment, a Luxembourg beating England nearly".
