Gray featured in the fourth-round tie at the Emirates Stadium in North London. The 24-year-old started the game and played for the entire 90 minutes, but he failed to prevent the Gunners from registering a 2-1 win.
Despite the result, Gray seemed to have enjoyed playing against Arsenal at the Emirates, as the following tweet suggests:

It is indeed a dream of many footballers to play in the FA Cup, especially against a big club like Arsenal.
Gray is a good striker who is only 24 years of age, and it is only a matter of time before he gets to play against England’s top clubs on a regular basis.
The former Brentford striker’s aforementioned tweet will be of interest to Newcastle United, who are reportedly looking to sign him in the summer transfer window.
According to The Telegraph, Premier League outfit Newcastle are planning to bid for Gray in the summer of 2016.
Gray has scored 15 goals and created 24 chances in 23 Championship appearances so far this season.
