Arsenal v Manchester United FA Cup fourth round preview 0

Posted on January 24, 2019 by David Nugent

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.
