Portsmouth vs Arsenal in an FA Cup fifth round clash at Fratton Park. Who will reach the quarter-finals?
The Portsmouth vs Arsenal FA Cup fifth round clash features two clubs fighting to work their way back up the standings of English football.
Pompey enjoyed Premier League status between 2003 and 2010, but have battled a series of on- and off-field issues since then and are currently in the third tier of the English game.
The Gunners won 3 FA Cups in a 4-year span from 2014–2017 and are perennial top-4 contenders, yet find themselves languishing in 10th in the EPL at the time of writing. That leaves both clubs with a great opportunity to make the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and give their seasons a welcome boost.
When is Portsmouth vs Arsenal FA Cup fifth round?
This match kicks off at 6:45am AEDT on Tuesday 3 March at Portsmouth's Fratton Park. The following day is EPL giants Chelsea vs Liverpool.

Who will win Portsmouth vs Arsenal FA Cup fifth round?
From the real threat of extinction over financial troubles just a few years ago, Portsmouth have been slowly climbing back to some level of respectability. Pompey have won three of their past four matches in League One, sitting third with a genuine shot at promotion to the Championship.
Arsenal were knocked out of the Europa League in extra-time at home to Olympiacos last week. But in the Premier League, they are unbeaten in seven matches and an outside chance of securing European qualification for next season if they can keep winning.
Considering their FA Cup pedigree and talent-laden squad, we expect Arsenal to attack this match head-on and be too strong for the home side at Fratton Park.
