Pompey were a Premier League outfit when they lifted the famous trophy in 2008 but the south coast side have experienced a dramatic slide down the divisions since then and are only now climbing their way back up.

Kenny Jackett’s men are currently sitting just outside the automatic promotion places in League One and have already dispatched Harrogate Town, Altrincham, Fleetwood Town and Barnsley in their cup run so far.

Arsenal have beaten Leeds United and Bourneouth to reach this stage of the competition but come into the match on the back of a shock Europa League exit at the hands of Olympiakos – so are the 13-time FA Cup winners vulnerable to an upset here?

Who will win? RadioTimes.com predicts…

Neutral fans will surely have their fingers crossed for a surprise here, willing Portsmouth to roll back the years and stun an Arsenal side that has looked decidedly fragile at times this season.

However, the Gunners are FA Cup specialists and Mikel Arteta has a squad packed full of young talent with a point to prove as they look to stake their claims for regular starting berths.

The longer Pompey can shut out their Premier League opponents, the more nervous the travelling support will get but Arsenal should have enough firepower to progress – even if the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are given the night off.
