Arsenal badly need to boost morale at the club after their recent setbacks, with Arsene Wenger’s men at real risk of failing to qualify for the Champions League for the first time under the Frenchman’s tenure. Last 3/1 (4.0) to win in what could be Wenger’s last season at the London club, silverware will be paramount to ensuring his legacy remains as intact as possible and the FA Cup represents the only chance there for Arsenal, who have been upped to 50/1 (51.0).
The Gunners have struggled to put together consistent displays in the league but, in a knockout encounter such as this one against City, they certainly have the quality up front to punish any lapse at the back. Arsenal have fond memories of the new Wembley Stadium, having gone unbeaten in their last six games there and so making it an ideal ground to face Pep Guadiola’s side on.
Maligned for much of the season, Mesut Ozil played a blinder in their 2-1 win at Middlesbrough last time out and together with Alexis Sanchez - who has struck three goals in as many games at Wembley - the two are capable of producing a moment of brilliance capable of turning any game in Arsenal’s favour. Though not convincing of late, Arsenal will come out for the win with all guns blazing here - available at an extremely generous 50/1 (51.0).
Despite that, City do remain favourites for a reason. Last 4/5 (1.80), they are 30/1 (31.0) to continue their late resurgence this season to defeat Arsenal and reach the FA Cup final. After a run of four games without a win in all competitions, the Etihad outfit have won their last two, netting three times in each victory.
Their form establishes them as having a slightly better chance against their upcoming opponents, who boast just five wins in their last 13 games. And while the Gunners certainly have the firepower to trouble City, their backline has looked marginally less wobbly of late. The away side here will certainly look to make their own mark in front of goal and can boast eight different goalscorers in the FA Cup this season, more than any other side left in the competition.
Big spenders City know a season without silverware, even if they qualify for next season’s Champions League, would be considered a write-off, and Guardiola’s squad players will be similarly motivated to prove their worth ahead of an anticipated summer clear-out. Given Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero have begun looking their decisive best during the season run-in, odds of 30/1 (31.0) certainly represent a serious chance to make a quick, risk-free profit.
