Arsenal is now the underdog in the FA Cup, winning the trophy would be amazing

Arsenal reached the semifinal of the FA Cup after a hard-fought 2-1 win over Sheffield United.

The Gunners are now one of four teams left in the competition and they will face the defending champions, Manchester City at Wembley next month.

Manchester United and Chelsea are the other two sides remaining in the competition and looking at the other teams, Arsenal is definitely the underdogs.

Although the Gunners have won the competition more than any other side, their current form and position on the league table make them the worst team remaining in the competition.

This is a good thing because the Gunners will be playing their next games under less pressure. After all, almost everyone has written them off.

Even the staunchest Arsenal fan knows that we have a mountain to climb because Manchester City is one of the top two teams in the country.

However, it doesn’t mean we cannot spring a surprise, as a matter of fact, I think that it places us in the best position to make something happen.

I believe in our players and in the tactics of Mikel Arteta, and I think we can finally get revenge over Manchester City in this game.

If we can go on to win this FA Cup, we would be the most unlikely winners the competition has had in a while.

    Just think back to 2017… City – with KDB, Aguero, Sane, D.Silva – beaten in the semi!!
    Chelsea – with dirty Diego and Hazard
    beaten to lift the trophy!!!
    The footballing gods were definitely smiling on us then…. and they may well again next month!! Or we could always loan Ramsey for the semi 😉 hahaha!! COYG

      I’m think we will beat City and then beat Chelsea in the final.
      Really sorry though to hear Balogun, one of the best young strikers I’ve seen, about to leave us though.

        Yes, that really is a bummer, Declan.
        Do you think we’ll insert a buy back clause? I’ve just seen it looks like there’s going to be a sell-on clause

          We would be silly not to Sue but who knows. We turned down £5 million from Brentford in the last window so will likely get a bit more for him. Really sorry to see him leave though.

            Me too 👍

    Don’t even dream. We lose semis 3 or 4 nil best case scenario. This team is very bad. I believed in Arteta but his persistence of playing the great Auba on the left while we lose game after game has made me put a question mark.
