Boost for Arsenal as key Man City man could miss FA Cup game

Arsenal has been handed a boost ahead of their FA Cup match against Manchester City next weekend.

Mikel Arteta’s side will face the Citizens in a tough game as both clubs seek to make progress in the competition.

The Gunners sit atop the Premier League table, while City follows them closely, with Arteta now showing his mentor he learnt well.

City knows Arsenal is in top form and has the tempo of a side that can beat anyone and will need their best men on the field in that game.

However, in a major boost for the Gunners, a report on The Daily Mail reveals the reigning EPL champions could be without Phil Foden.

The Englishman has been suffering from an injury which forced him to miss their last two games and is yet to recover.

Just Arsenal Opinion

City remains the best club in the land and will almost certainly catch us if we drop points in the EPL.

They also know we could win the league and cup double if we make progress in the FA Cup and Pep Guardiola’s men will be eager to stop our run in the game.

But they will be under more pressure than us, so we should just play our game and hopefully get the win.

  1. We should get our priorities right, the big jug should be our number one priority.

    Second should be the European mug.

    1. Although I agree with you and would have the FA CUP behind the PL and EUL in the list of priorities, I still think we should put out a fairly strong team and not make wholesale changes. Winning against City at the Etihad, somewhere we haven’t won since 14-15 would be a big statement and make Pep Guardiola and his players know they are in a real battle against us this season.

      White Saliba Kiwior Tierney
      Partey Xhaka
      Saka Eddie Trossard

      Bench: Ramsdale Tomiyasu Holding Gabriel Zinchenko Lokonga Odegaard Marquinhos Martinelli

      1. We have beaten the cups .recently…in fact 5 months after Arteta joined when we won GA Cup

        I agree there is a statement to make but we can’t risk any of Partey Saka or Eddie at the moment.

        I think the following would be strong enough

        Tomi Holding Saliba / Gabriel Tierney
        Zinch Xhaka
        Marquinhos Martinelli Troussard

      2. Nooooooo… We dont need the FA cup we should play with the reserves. Partey, Zinchenko and saka should be rested

  2. I do not accept that Foden, great player though he certainly is, gives in any way a boost to us by being injured.

    City are so good that such a hyped headline could just as easily be misused about almost any of their very many top class players.

    This headline is not true and is being used simply as an excuse for an article and NOT because it is true , as it is not!
