What better way for the fourth round of the FA Cup to get started, than a game between the top two clubs in England. Arsenal are top of the Premier League, five points clear of second-placed Man City while having a game in hand, but their hunt for a first league title in 19 years will be put on hold for a moment.

Instead, the focus is on extending their record as the most-successful club in FA Cup history. Last claiming the trophy in 2019/10, Arsenal have won the FA Cup on 14 different occasions, two more than closest rivals Manchester United. However, since that win, Arsenal haven’t made it past the fourth round. In the third round this year, Arsenal beat League One side Oxford United 3-0.

The FA Cup, meanwhile, is the trophy that has often eluded Man City since they rose to the top of English football, winning just twice since the 1970s. Last winning in 2018/19, Man City have been knocked out of the FA Cup semi-finals in each of the past three seasons, beaten by Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool respectively.

But Man City have already knocked out one big club in this season’s competition, beating Chelsea 4-0 in the third round. Pep Guardiola’s side will be hoping they can push for the FA Cup as part of a Treble, still very much in the Premier League title race and among the favourites for the FA Cup.

Man City vs Arsenal match stats

This will be an interesting tactical battle between two managers with very similar styles, and we’re unlikely to see two teams with high lines ripe for the counter. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be opportunities, so it’s on the defenders to catch attackers out. Kyle Walker and Nathan Ake have been particularly good at it in the Premier League this season with 0.77 and 0.76 successful offside traps per 90 minutes respectively — awarded to the last defender when an offside decision is given.

Arsenal are yet to face Erling Haaland this season, so the Norwegian will be keen to test the Gunners’ defence and goalkeeper. After a slow start to 2023, Haaland has scored four goal in his past two matches including a hat-trick against Wolves at the weekend. Can Arsenal stop him?
