It’s master against apprentice on Saturday evening at Wembley Stadium when Mikel Arteta leads the FA Cup’s most successful team to take on Pep Guardiola’s Man City, the competition’s current holders.
A place in the 2020 final of the world’s oldest cup competition is at stake with The Citizens the clear favourites. It would be unwise, though, to underrate an Arsenal team that has lifted the FA Cup in three of the last six seasons.
Man City have won each of their last seven meetings with Arsenal.
Man City scored three goals in six of those seven wins.
Arsenal scored at least once in 14 of their last 15 matches in all competitions.
Over 2.5 goals were scored in 11 of the last 12 meetings between Arsenal and City.
Prediction: It’s a cup game at the Wembley between two attack-minded sides, so goals should flow. (Over 2.5 goals)
