Martin O'Neill will let the FA Cup take care of itself after seeing Sunderland book a mouth-watering double header against Arsenal.

The Black Cats face the Gunners in the Barclays Premier League at the Stadium of Light on Saturday in what will represent a dress rehearsal for their first fifth round tie in eight years seven days later.

O'Neill's men booked their place in the last 16 with a 2-1 replay victory over Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium, but needed extra-time to seal their progress, and the Ulsterman said: "Arsenal will be pretty pleased that we have gone into extra-time. We will try to get ourselves ready for that game. The cup game will take care of itself the week after."
