Brighton & Hove Albion defender Inigo Calderon says the FA Cup creates special memories for the players.
The Spaniard is relishing the chance to play in front of a sold-out Amex crowd against Arsenal, and is one of only two survivors - along with Gordon Greer - from the narrow 3-2 defeat against the Gunners two seasons ago.
He told seagulls.co.uk, “The cup is all about playing in these types of games - they are the games you remember.
“You don’t remember playing against League Two or Conference sides - you’d prefer to play against teams like Arsenal.
“We’ve been lucky in the last few seasons playing against Liverpool and Arsenal and it’s a special occasion.
“I don’t even have any regrets from when we lost 6-1 to Liverpool, obviously the result wasn’t the best but we were playing at Anfield.
“These games give you the chance to remember something and in years to come you can look back and say, ‘I was there’."

Calderon went on to admit how he has been studying Albion’s narrow defeat to Arsenal at the fourth round stage two years ago.
“In the last few weeks I’ve been watching the Arsenal highlights with my son and I forgot how close we were to getting the draw.
“They scored with five minutes left to win the game and I think we were already thinking about a replay at the Emirates.
“We were close that day and 95 per cent of the time they are going to win these games but we still have the five per cent chance.
“We can enjoy the game as it’s going to be a great atmosphere with a full house - a great day.”
