Manchester United vs Arsenal

Arsenal are in good form after beating Manchester City at home in the Premier League. At Emirates Stadium, the Gunners thrashed Manchester City 3-2.

In the fourth round of the FA Cup on Friday night, Manchester City welcomes Arsenal to the Etihad Stadium. The Gunners are interested in winning the league cup this season, and they will make Manchester City run for their money. These two teams are now ranked first and second in the Premier League.

The Gunners are five points ahead of Pep Guardiola's team in the Premier League table, and they have a game in hand. Newcastle United and Manchester United are also 11 points behind the leaders at this stage in the standings.

Arsenal Football Team has won the FA Cup more times than any other club, with their most recent victory coming in the year 2020. However, Arsenal may also need to win this cup to have a double at the end of the season.

Regarding Manchester City, they have won a total of six championships, with the most recent one coming in 2019.

In a match that took place earlier this month, the Citizens defeated Graham Potter's Chelsea team by a score of 4-0 to secure their spot in the fourth round of the competition.

But three days later, Manchester City lost 2-0 to Southampton in the quarterfinals of the Carabao Cup and was knocked out of the competition.

This season, Pep Guardiola's squad has played 20 Premier League games and has only lost three of them. Additionally, they have scored more goals than any other team in the league (53).

After their most recent match, in which they defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-0, courtesy of another hat trick from Erling Haaland, City will feel good about their chances of advancing to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Arsenal also won their last game in a surprising way. They came back from being down 2-1 to beat Manchester United 3-2 and strengthen their position in the race for the title.

Since returning from their vacation for the World Cup, the Gunners have competed in six games, with a record of five victories and one tie. This includes a 3-0 victory against Oxford United in the previous round of the cup.

Surprisingly, Mikel Arteta's team hasn't lost any of its 19 Premier League matches so far this season. So far, they have 16 wins and two draws. Their form is incredible this season despite having few injuries.

Even while it is clear that Arteta's first objective is to win the Premier League, there is no question that the Arsenal manager would be thrilled to win the FA Cup for a third time.

In all competitions, Manchester City has won the last five meetings with Arsenal.During this winning streak, Manchester City has scored 13 goals and kept three clean sheets when playing against Arsenal.

Even though the Gunners eliminated Guardiola's team on their way to winning the FA Cup in 2020, it is tough to overlook City's previous record in this matchup given how often it has occurred.

In team news, there have been no recent reports of injuries for Manchester City, so Pep Guardiola should be able to choose his strongest starting eleven for Friday's matchup.

Gabriel Jesus, Reiss Nelson, and Mohamed Elneny are all injured, so they will not be able to play for Arsenal when they go to the Etihad Stadium.
