Sunday’s second FA Cup semi-final sees Arsenal take on Manchester City at Wembley in a match that promises plenty of drama.
Following inconsistent campaigns, the pair will view this competition as a last chance to earn some salvation, while they could also land a potentially crucial psychological blow in the battle for the top four.
Uncertainty over Arsene Wenger‘s future still appears to be hindering the Gunners but they bounced back with a 2-1 win over Middlesbrough on Monday and are 3/1 to triumph in 90 minutes and 29/20 to qualify.
Wenger tried a three-at-the-back defensive formation at the Riverside and the Frenchman, who has guided the club to glory in this competition on six separate occasions, could be tempted to stick with the same starting XI.
The Gunners have also kept clean sheets in five of their last seven in the FA Cup and an Arsenal victory to zero is 13/2, as they aim to win this competition for the third time in four years, a feat they are 9/2 to achieve.
Much will depend on the attacking pair of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil who will be looking to exploit the sizable Wembley pitch to their advantage.
They have been given a significant boost with the news that Gabriel Jesus could play a part following a speedy recovery from injury, while skipper Vincent Kompany looks set to be handed another start for the Citizens.
Pep Guardiola himself has said it is vital that his team win this competition to show themselves that they are heading in the right direction and they are 11/5 to lift the trophy on May 27.
It is likely to be a game that goes right down to the wire and penalties could be the agenda between these two such evenly matched sides.
