Premier League leaders Arsenal will pause their title-chasing aspirations on Monday night when Mikel Arteta travels with his squad to The City of Dreaming Spires, where League One outfit Oxford United lie in wait for an FA Cup third-round match-up. The Kassam Stadium is braced and ready.

Arteta is well-aquatinted with this competition having lifted the trophy twice as a player for Arsenal under Arsene Wenger, and then guiding the Gunners to cup glory in his maiden campaign. Having inherited Unai Emery’s squad in December 2019, Arteta went on to clinch the silverware five months later.

Long-standing coach Karl Robinson has previous in the domestic cups, particularly at home. His side thrashed West Ham 4-0 in the EFL Cup in September 2019, and he will be hoping to inflict another miserable journey back down the M40 to London opposition on Monday night.

Oxford Utd vs Arsenal match stats

In the absence of Gabriel Jesus — following an injury sustained at the World Cup with Brazil — Eddie Nketiah has really come to the fore. The No. 14 has started the past three Premier League games for Arsenal and scored twice in that time. He has also registered the most shots on target of any Arsenal player (four).

In that same post-Qatar timeframe, Martin Odegaard has continued to play like a man possessed. The past three league matches has borne witness to the Norwegian’s mesmeric footwork and reading of the game, a sentiment underlined by his 11 chances created and three assists. He will be eyeing up further final-third havoc in the FA Cup.
