Arsenal host Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday at Wembley Stadium. Their opponents are bidding to win this and the EFL Cup for the second successive season. Wednesday saw them beat Bournemouth 2-1 and they could yet finish the season with three trophies being won.. With the League Cup already in the bag, they have one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals (leading Real Madrid 2-1 from the first leg) and only need two wins in the FA Cup to hang on to it for another year.
Arsenal have won the FA Cup on a record 13 occasions, one more than Manchester United. They could yet make it into the Europa League. Winning the FA Cup is one route and finishing in the top seven in the Premier League is another. It could even be eighth if Wolves were to win the Europa League. Arsenal boosted their chances with a 2-1 home win over Liverpool on Thursday. That left them two points adrift of Tottenham in seventh and three behind sixth-placed Wolves.
The Gunners don’t have a good record against Manchester City though. Their opponents have beaten them in each of their last seven league and cup meetings. The last time Arsenal did beat City was in 2017 when they met in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley. City have scored at least three goals in six of their last seven matches against Arsenal. They know how to unlock that defense. Three clean sheets in eight games since the restart tell Mikel Arteta that he needs to reinforce their backline this summer.
Arsenal have failed to score in five of their last six matches against City. Back City to win with a clean sheet.
