The Citizens claimed a 4-0 victory over Chelsea in the third round to set up a tie with the Gunnersm who eased past Oxford United 3-0 at the Kassam Stadium.

Following a rare scoreless streak for Erling Braut Haaland, he made it four hat-tricks for the Premier League season in a 3-0 victory over Wolves at the weekend.

However, Man City still have a five-point gap to make up to leaders Arsenal in the Premier League table, but they barely needed to get out of second gear to put four unanswered goals past Chelsea in round four of the FA Cup.

Seeking to avoid a fourth-round exit for the first time since the 2014-15 season, City have progressed to the semi-finals in each of the last four FA Cup campaigns, and Pep Guardiola’s side have strung together a nine-game winning run in FA Cup home games – scoring at least three goals in each occasion.

Despite breaching Arsenal’s defence twice through Marcus Rashford and Lisandro Martinez, Manchester United could have had no complaints about the final result following a relentless period of second-half pressure from the Gunners, whose fine run continued through Eddie Nketiah’s brace and Bukayo Saka’s goal in a 3-2 victory.

Arsenal surprisingly only progressed past the fourth round of the FA Cup once since 2017, which was their run to glory in 2019-20, and they have been knocked out at this stage by Manchester United in 2018-19 and Southampton in 2020-21.

The defeat to Southampton marks the last time that Arsenal have faced a fellow top-flight team in the FA Cup, but they travel to the Etihad boasting a five-game winning run away from home, scoring 12 goals and keeping four clean sheets in that run.

Manchester City vs. Arsenal Head to head

In the 185 previous meetngs between these two teams across all competitions, Manchester City have claimed 54 victories while Arsenal have won 89, and they have drawn in 42. Arsenal have scored 297 goals and conceded 228 in the process.

Manchester City Team News

Guardiola revealed that Phil Foden’s absence against Wolves was due to a foot problem, and it remains to be seen if the attacker can return to the matchday squad here.

Stefan Ortega will hope to continue in goal over Ederson, while Bernardo Silva and Kyle Walker should also have strong chances of coming back in after only making the bench against Wolves.

Arsenal Team News

Former Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus will not feature for Arsenal at the Etihad, as he continues to recover from knee surgery, with Reiss Nelson, Mohamed Elneny and Cedric Soares also out injured.

Ben White was taken off at half time in the win over Manchester United, but he should keep his place, while Leandro Trossard enjoyed a bright cameo on his debut at the weekend and could give Gabriel Martinelli some competition.
