On Saturday afternoon, Manchester City mauled Watford 6-0 in the FA Cup at Wembley, to claim an unprecedented domestic treble in English football.

The game proved significant for more than just the Citizens achievement, though, as it also saw the final appearance in a City shirt captain Vincent Kompany. The 33-year-old is out of contract this summer with the Citizens.

Vincent Kompany is no doubt a player in the twilight of his playing career. However, towards the end of the season, he had a massive influence on his team’s displays, as the Citizens won their last 14 league matches to claim the Premier League title.

On Friday night, Arsenal host Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium in the glamour tie of the FA Cup fourth round.

Arsenal recorded an important 2-0 win over Chelsea last time out to stay in touch with the Blues in the race for the Champions League spots. Despite a top-four finish being the home side’s priority, the FA Cup has become an important competition for the Gunners in recent years.

The team from north London have been highly difficult to defeat in the grand old competition in recent years, losing just twice in 25 outings. Unai Emery’s side coasted past Blackpool in the last round 3-0 to set-up this clash.

On Saturday evening, Arsenal visit Blackpool in the third round of the FA Cup, as the Gunners look for a comfortable passage to the next round.

Blackpool have struggled for form of late and the Tangerines are midtable in League One after three defeats in their last four outings. The home side has seen off Exeter City and Solihull Moors in the previous rounds but needed extra time to see off the latter in the last round.
