    This is a massive one. If we can eliminate City and win the FA cup, it would be big boost and will make the fans have something to be excited about going into the summer transfer window.

    City have made it a trend in recent years (especially since Pep's arrival) to go for domestic trophies whether the Carabao or FA cup. They'll be up for this and we should expect them to be ultra competitive.

    Hopefully Kola doesn't start. If we remain sturdy at the back, I'm quite certain we'll get chances at the other end. Hopefully Auba and Laca has their shooting boots on especially Auba who has been dire in big games.

    Predicted line up


    Match prediction: *Arsenal 1-1 Manchester City

    *Arsenal win on penalties :drool:

    Edit: Don't want Kolasinac anywhere near that lineup

    No Mustafi or Kolasanic, they bottle when it comes to the big games. I think Pepe is seriously out of form and Nelson has just scored so he should start imo but yeah I agree with that team.
    Just wanna say what a sh@t time to start a football game that late on a Saturday evening. Wtf. Why can’t the game start on midday?

    Arteta has already broken our recent non-winning streak against Liverpool, and unfortunately for the "fans" on here who want us to lose...Mikel is breaking our recent losing streak against City and there is nothing they can do about it!

    1-0 to The Arsenal.

    I can't see any way in which we win this. But then neither could I see any way in which we won last night. Hopefully an omen.

    Worst outcome is if this goes to extra time because then we’ll probably too knackered to beat Villa on Tuesday.

    This straight after that energy-sapping game is not ideal; physically and mentally.

    City is a much more creative side, will be very hard to contain them.

    Not saying it is easy, but with Liverpool it's defending full-back crosses and keeping their top wingers quiet. City adds creativity and defense-cutting passes from midfield to the mix.

    Luckily, the win against Liverpool has given us two routes back to Europe. FA Cup seems the harder route with City and then Utd or Chelsea.

    Obviously, I hope we win. Should go all out on both fronts. 3 to 4 matches left.

    I'd go with:

    Aubameyang - Lacazette - Nelson
    Saka - Xhaka - Ceballos - Maitland-Niles
    Tierney - Luiz - Holding

    City were beaten by ManU x2, Saints, and Chelsea recently in the exact same fashion we beat Liverpool last night.

    Though we need a better counter-attacking plan, absolutely horrendous to watch last night. Will probably be better with Auba in there though.

    and Pep owes us for stopping Liverpool reaching their record points, and for not speaking out against their FFP let off

    Evening match in an empty Wembley should be a spectacle.

    Ceballos, Auba and Bellerin will come back in, so we`ll have som fresh legs at least.

    Teammates need to not be afriad to find Auba when he runs in behind. We're allergic to it but its our best chance at scoring.

    City will win convincingly though.

    This’ll be a dry bumming.

    Bring in Mustafi and Kolasinac so they can enjoy it.
