Oxford United are set to face a huge task this evening, as they host current Premier League leaders Arsenal in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup.

The Gunners are currently on an 11-game unbeaten streak in the league and are heavy favourites against an Oxford side sitting in 15th place in League One.

In his column for the Oxford Mail, U's boss Karl Robinson described his side as "massive underdogs" but still believes his players can make it a difficult evening for Mikael Arteta's men.

He wrote: "With respect to the millions of Arsenal fans, we won’t just have the support of Oxford United’s fanbase on Monday, we will have millions more people willing us on as underdogs.

"All we can promise is total commitment and passion. We can’t wait."

It is the first meeting between Oxford and Arsenal since the third round of the FA Cup in the 2002-03 season.

The Gunners came out on top in that encounter winning 2-0, with Dennis Bergkamp scoring his 100th goal for the club in the game.

In last season's competition, Oxford was knocked out in the 1st Round, losing to Bristol Rovers 4-3 in a replay after an initial 2-2 draw.
