Re-live all the updates from the sixth-round FA Cup tie at the Emirates Stadium

Arsenal take on the only non-league outfit to remain in this season's FA Cup when they host National League leaders Lincoln City at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

 

What time is kick off?

The game at the Emirates kicks off at 5.30pm on Saturday 11 March.

Where can I watch it?

The game can be watch live on BT Sport 2, with coverage starting at 5pm.

It’s a big game for…

Arsene Wenger: It’s a lose-lose game for the Arsenal manager. The pressure won’t subside with a win and it will only grow with a defeat or even a narrow victory.

Wenger is teetering on the edge with many loyalists turning their back on him after the 10-2 aggregate humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich but a trip to Wembley will do some good for the fans.

Interesting fact…

Lincoln are the first non-league team to play in an FA Cup quarter-final since QPR in 1913/14.

Player to watch…

Alexis Sanchez: The Chilean has been Arsenal’s player to watch for the last few weeks – mainly to see his reaction while sitting on the bench.

Sanchez has been caught laughing with teammates during both the defeat to Liverpool and the 5-1 hammering at home by Bayern Munich.

If he thinks that is funny then he will be in stitches if the Gunners manage to fall behind against Lincoln.
