The Gunners travel to Gander Green Lane on Monday, for a place in the last eight of the competition .
Welbeck will not make the trip, as he was part of the Arsenal U-23 side that lost 2-1 to Leicester City on Sunday. The England striker played 70 minutes of the game.
He tweeted afterwards:
“Glad to get 70 minutes today to build up my match fitness. Plastic pitch at Sutton isn’t the best idea at the moment. #COYG”
Welbeck has made only one start since he returned from an eight-month lay-off, scoring a brace in their 5-0 win over Southampton in the FA Cup fourth round.
