Theo Walcott scored his 100th Arsenal in the FA Cup on Monday night, but it was opponent substitute goalkeeper Wayne Shaw who stole the show. 

How? By hitting the bar at half-time and then eating a pie while he was sat on the bench. And for good measure, he also hoovered the dugout before the match.

All this, as Arsenal ended non-league side Sutton’s stunning run to the last 16 of the FA Cup. The match also took place on artificial turf, a far cry from the lush smooth natural surface of The Emirates stadium.

The incident showed the chasm between the two teams, which are 105 places apart in the English football pyramid.

Sutton had hoped to emulate their famous 1989 win over Coventry City, FA Cup winners 19 months previously, but there was no disgrace in defeat in their first ever fifth-round game.

Arsenal were given several uncomfortable moments on the 3G pitch at Sutton’s 5,000-capacity Gander Green Lane ground, which was full to bursting with fans in yellow Sutton T-shirts, hats and scarves.

Lucas Perez was the other goalscorer for Arsenal as the victory kept their hopes alive in a campaign which could possibly be manager Arsene Wenger’s last after two decades at the club.
