Manchester City welcome English Premier League leaders, Arsenal in the FA Cup, but it is a match that could have a wider impact on the race for the title. (More Football news)
Mikel Arteta's Arsenal are five points ahead of reigning champions, Manchester City, having played one game less. A win at the Etihad Stadium would strengthen belief that the Gunners can sustain a title challenge. But victory for City could provide it with a psychological boost in the second half of the season.
Arsenal are riding high after victories over arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United in the league, while City stayed in touch after responding to a blast from Pep Guardiola by beating Tottenham and Wolves.
"At half-time the other day, Pep told us what he wanted, what he wasn't happy with. As players we were not at our best and we had to correct that," City defender John Stones said of his side's fightback from two goals down to defeat Tottenham 4-2.
“When the team make 50 points it is because they have been the best, and they are,” Guardiola said. “We have to prove how far away or how close we are and the best way to notice is to perform our best level. Otherwise, against a team at that level, it will be difficult.”
“It’s not going to change any friendship, the moments that we had, how important he is in my life, how important he is in my profession,” Arteta said. “We’re both willing to win and defend our clubs the best possible way and that’s always been the case since day one.”
To be mindful, Arteta has already outwitted Guardiola in the FA Cup, having led Arsenal to a 2-0 victory over then-defending champion City in the semi-finals in 2020.
