'Anything can happen in football and if we can play as good as we can then we've a good enough chance.'
'We proved last season that anyone has a chance in the Cup.'
'Arsenal have great players all the way through their team and will difficult for us. But we can cope with that. And if you look at the quality, pace and power in our team, we have a chance. We also defend well and look dangerous on the break.'

The game will see Jay Bothroyd play against the team he trained at while a youth footballer, while former Bluebird Aaron Ramsey will hope to play a part against his former club.
