Arsenal vs Man City match preview
While Manchester City missed out on the top spot in the league, their season is still very much alive. They’ve got this FA Cup semi final and remain in the Champions League. If the blues can stay motivated, they may still have a season to remember.
Conversely, Arsenal don’t look likely to achieve top four in the league, so they will miss out on a Champions League place next season. The FA Cup is a prestigious trophy in itself, but Arsenal fans may also see the Cup as a route into the Europa League next season.
City have lost twice since the break, to Chelsea and Southampton. Pep’s Blues have performed well in their most recent outings though, notably putting five past Brighton – without reply – last Saturday and doing the same to Newcastle in the fixture before that. City fans will hope that free-scoring form can roll on, but their last fixture was a more nip-and-tuck 2-1 victory over Bournemouth.
Arsenal’s recent form is a mixed bag, a win, a draw and a loss in their last three. Most recently they overcame the league champions, Liverpool, but the league winners never looked their best and essentially gifted Arsenal their two goals through defensive errors.
Manchester City will be firm favourites going into this semi final, but Arsenal have shown their ability to surprise teams this season and it’s sure to be a closely contested affair. Tune in on BT Sport for all the action.
