A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the FA Cup third round draw, which has put them up against Leeds United.
Arsenal are currently managerless, having parted ways with Unai Emery last week, and with Freddie Ljungberg in interim charge of the North Londoners.
Leeds, meanwhile, have one of the most renowned managers in the game in their dugout in the shape of Marcelo Bielsa, and have been trading places with West Brom at the top of the second-tier table.
The links between the two clubs include the fact that Leeds won the FA Cup against Arsenal at Wembley back in 1972, and also Eddie Nketiah being on loan at Elland Road from the Emirates Stadium.
However, the first individual that came to mind for many Arsenal fans when the draw was made was Thierry Henry, the club legend who returned on loan in early 2012 and scored a dramatic winner against Leeds in the cup.
Here is some of the social media reaction from the Arsenal fanbase:
