Pep Guardiola’s men have comfortably won both Premier League meetings this season, but the Gunners are in good recent form and will fancy their chances in a one-off cup tie.
Manchester City are aiming to win the FA Cup for the second season in a row, but must first get past Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side in the FA semi-final on Saturday.
Pep Guardiola will be without cup goalkeeper Claudio Bravo against the Gunners, with Ederson set to take his place, whilst Kevin De Bruyne and Aymeric Laporte are set to come back into the side after being rested against Bournemouth in midweek.
“Arsenal manager Mikael Arteta has won the FA Cup twice as a player and was part of the backroom staff at Manchester City when they lifted the trophy last season. He will no doubt be desperate to see his Arsenal team win it in his first year at the helm. The Gunners will have been buoyed by their win against Liverpool last time out but with their form being somewhat inconsistent since the restart and with their recent poor record against the Citizens, I fancy City to win this one.
Saturday’s meeting at Wembley is a big one. Reigning champions versus most successful club. Pep Guardiola will be looking to mirror last month’s 3-0 win and secure a domestic double to sooth the pain of conceding the Premier League title to Liverpool.
