The Gunners are up against League One opposition as they look to progress in the FA Cup on Monday

Arsenal and Oxford will battle it out for a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup when they meet on Monday.

The Gunners are looking to complete a treble of trophies this season as they also are in contention to win the Premier League and Europa League this season.

They are unbeaten in their last four matches heading into this match against opponents who have won just one of their last five.

Oxford vs Arsenal latest odds

Arsenal are the big favourites to win this game against their League One hosts at odds of 2/11 (1.18) with bet365.

Oxford are the outsiders to emerge victorious at 9/1 (10.00) and the draw is set at 15/2 (8.50).

Oxford vs Arsenal first goal scorer odds

Eddie Nketiah is the favourite to get the first goal of the match at odds of 15/4 (4.75) while team-mate Nathan Butler-Oyedeji is available at 4/1 (5.00).

Matty Taylor has scored three goals in all competitions this season and is the home team's lowest-priced player to break the deadlock at 14/1 (15.00) with Cameron Brannagan available at 18/1 (19.00).

Oxford vs Arsenal preview

Arsenal are still without Gabriel Jesus and Reiss Nelson for this match but face no fresh injury concerns.

Mikel Arteta is likely to field a much different team to that which drew 0-0 with Newcastle in their latest Premier League match.

That game brought an end to their five-game winning run in the top-flight and they will feel that even with a weaker squad they are capable of overpowering their hosts.

Since beating Exeter 4-1 in the last round of the FA Cup, Oxford have won just one match in League One, most recently losing to Exeter.

They sit 15th in the division, 11 points adrift of the final play-off place.

Oxford vs Arsenal tips and predictions

Arsenal should win this one by a sizeable margin, so backing them with a -1 handicap at odds of 1/2 (1.50) or -2 at the price of 5/4 (2.25) are worth considering.
