The pick of the FA Cup fourth round ties will take place at the Emirates Stadium on Friday, when Arsenal take on Manchester United.

This pair have lifted this trophy 25 times between them, with the Gunners shading the record for most wins of any team with 13.

Latest odds

Having run out 2-1 winners at Old Trafford the last time the sides met in this competition back in 2015, they are slight 7/5 (2.40) favourites with bet365 to remain on course for a fourth cup win in six seasons by coming out on top once again.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already made his own history by winning each of his first seven matches in all competitions, and can be backed at 7/4 (2.75) to oversee another victory here.

The teams shared a 2-2 Premier League draw in their previous encounter in December, and you can get odds of 5/2 (3.50) on them taking this one to a replay after another deadlock.

Team news

Hector Bellerin has joined Rob Holding and Danny Welbeck on the long-term injury list after suffering serious knee damage against Chelsea, although Henrikh Mkhitaryan has returned to training following his lay-off with a broken foot.

Marcus Rashford is unlikely to start after being taken off against Brighton with a suspected knee issue, while Marouane Fellaini and Marcos Rojo remain unavailable and Chris Smalling is doubtful due to a persistent foot problem.

Free-scoring clash

Last month's 2-2 draw at Old Trafford was the eighth encounter in 10 between this pair to have seen both teams find the net, with those 10 matches averaging over three goals per game.

With the Red Devils having scored 19 times in seven games under their new boss and Unai Emery's men having kept just two clean sheets in 17 fixtures against Premier League opposition, another free-scoring clash looks likely here.

Predictions

Indeed, odds of 5/6 (1.83) look like solid value on both teams to score and over 2.5 goals going in for Arsenal's third home match in four and United's 15th game in 17 against top flight opposition.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
