Manchester City will entertain Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium this Friday night as both sides look to get the better of each other in the fourth round of the FA Cup. The Mancunian club managed to earn a 3-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers recently. Similarly, the Gunners secured a hard-fought 3-2 win against Manchester United. Thus, we can expect the two teams to be full of confidence ahead of this FA Cup game in Manchester.

Manchester City Vs Arsenal: Talking Tactics

Pep Guardiola will probably set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and could instruct his players to control the flow of the game and engineer enough chances for Man City to win this game.

Mikel Arteta will opt for a 4-3-3 formation as well and might ask his men to defend their penalty box well and try to cause a few problems for the opposition defenders on the counter.

Team News

Manchester City

Phil Foden is a major doubt for this game and would have to pass a late fitness test if he wants to get involved in this cup game at the Etihad. Otherwise, Guardiola has no fresh injury concerns to cope with this week.

Manchester City Predicted XI

Ortega; Walker, Dias, Akanji, Ake; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Haaland, Alvarez



Gabriel Jesus, Reiss Nelson and Mohamed Elneny will be sidelined for this game due to injuries.

Arsenal Predicted XI

Turner; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Nketiah

Key Men

Manchester City

Erling Haaland will carry most of the goal-scoring burden for Man City on the attacking end of the field. Both Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva will act as the main playmakers for Man City in the opposition half.

Both Kyle Walker and Nathan Ake need to perform their defensive duties well if they are to stop Arsenal from causing problems from the wide areas.


Martin Odegaard has to find a way to create some decent chances for the Gunners when they are looking to catch the opposition defenders off-guard on the counter.

The defensive performance of William Saliba and Gabriel could go a long way in determining the fate of this contest.
