Arsenal draw Leyton Orient away in FA Cup fifth round

Arsenal will travel a few miles eastward to face League One side Leyton Orient in the fifth round of the FA Cup.  Orient sit 16th currently with 32 points from 24 matches and a goal difference of +2.  They defeated Swansea by a final of 2-1 in Wales to advance to the fifth round.

They are also in a good vein of form in the League at the moment, having recently drawn MK Dons 2-2 and defeating Sheffield Wednesday 4-0.

The O's also have three players on loan from neighbors Tottenham Hotspur, players who no doubt are salivating at the prospect of facing Spurs' most fierce rival.

The farthest Orient have progressed in the FA Cup is the semifinal in 1977-78, when they lost 3-0 to, well, to Arsenal, who eventually lost in the final against Ipswich Town.

The fixture will take place at the 9271-seat Brisbane Road on Saturday the 19th of February.
