Leeds United v Arsenal: We've got nothing to lose - Grayson

Leeds manager Simon Grayson will send his players out for tonight's FA Cup third-round replay against Arsenal at Elland Road with big smiles on their faces.

Grayson's npower Championship promotion-chasers came within a whisker of pulling off another big Cup upset at the Emirates Stadium wand the 41-year-old believes the pressure is all on the Londoners.

Arsene Wenger is reminded more than ever this season that it has been almost six years since his side last landed a major trophy, hence his palpable relief after Cesc Fabregas's last-minute penalty had cancelled out Robert Snodgrass's spot kick to salvage an unlikely replay.

Arsenal lifted the FA Cup in 2005, last won the Premier League in 2004 and the League Cup in 1993. There is a growing angst among the Gunners' faithful and Grayson hopes this could work in Leeds' favour.

Grayson, embarking on his third year in charge at Elland Road, said: "This is definitely a competition Arsenal want to win.

"They'll be focused on what they have to do and after being 1-0 down with a minute to go they'll be delighted to still be in it.

"But there's no pressure on us at all. We'll still go out and play with a carefree attitude and enjoy the occasion.

"Just because we got a result at the Emirates doesn't make us favourites by any stretch of the imagination.

"But it's a great opportunity to test ourselves against fantastic individuals and a fantastic team again and apply ourselves in front of the national media."

Leeds upset Manchester United at the same stage of the competition last season before falling to Tottenham in a replay and worked tirelessly again to restrict the Londoners to limited chances at the Emirates.

Grayson said: "We've earned the right to do that after the result at the Emirates, where we played very well.

"We showed a lot of good qualities and a determination not to get beat so we've earned a night at Elland Road in front of 40,000 fans."
