Manchester City and Arsenal put their Premier League title battle to one side for the weekend as they clash in the FA Cup fourth round.

It will be the first meeting of the season between the two teams and the Gunners head into the knockout tie buoyed by their five-point lead over the reigning top-flight champions.

Mikel Arteta’s side booked the trip to the Etihad Stadium by breezing past League One outfit Oxford United in round three, while Pep Guardiola’s lads progressed with a thumping victory over Chelsea.


There are likely to be plenty of changes to the starting XIs as the fixture list is jam-packed until the end of the season, but both clubs possess deep squads stacked with international talent.

Arsenal fans will be hoping the latest meeting is a bit more enjoyable than their last venture to the blue half of Manchester when they were hammered 5-0 at the start of last season.

Man City v Arsenal prediction

Thommo: This is set to be a cracker on Friday night. Arsenal come into this one on the back of their impressive 3-2 win against Manchester United last weekend and I landed a 19/1 Bet Builder for it, which is always a bonus!

Manchester City maybe haven’t been as good as before but they had a comfortable 3-0 win against Wolves – and their home form has been brilliant this season.

This is a hard one to call and while Arsenal are flying, I’m siding with Man City to Win, however, it wasn’t an easy decision. The main factor in the decision was that it’s at the Etihad.
