Sunderland booked their spot in the last eight by seeing off QPR on penalties and have been rewarded with a trip to the Emirates Stadium to face Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.


Lee Johnson will be eyeing pulling off a big shock in the capital and Sunderland are sure to be backed by a large travelling support on the night.



Fans are already looking forward to the game and James thinks a trip to Arsenal in December is about as good as things can get.


Stew and Louis both joked that Arsenal are not a big club anymore, while Fiona and Christian want to see Sunderland beat the Gunners to see a meltdown on fan channel Arsenal TV.



For Peter, while the tie against Arsenal is a tough test, it is still a winnable game for the Black Cats.


Parker also thinks an upset can happen, but believes that Arteta will be under pressure to field a strong side against Sunderland.


Sunderland must first focus on League One action, with a visit to Rotherham United on the agenda for this afternoon.
