Friday night’s FA Cup clash will be a very popular game from a betting perspective. Arsenal are five points clear at the top of the Premier League table with a game in hand. Supporters are starting to dream of a championship success and it would be even sweeter if the Gunners can land a domestic double, with Mikel Arteta’s side looking a big price to claim a victory in this clash.

Arsenal have only really suffered one meaningful defeat all season and that came at Old Trafford on 4 September. The other reverses were a Europa League dead rubber against PSV and an EFL Cup clash against Brighton. Indeed, there have been a string of recent wins and the only blot was a goalless draw against a stubborn Newcastle team.

It could be worth considering the visitors and the draw on the Double Chance market or alternatively going for Arsenal on the Asian Handicap. They will surely pose a threat with their brand of football, even away to a Manchester City team who have won nine of their eleven Premier League clashes at the Etihad Stadium and are favourites to win this season’s Champions League.

City have scored 38 goals in 11 home games in the Premier League and Erling Haaland is going to be a difficult striker to be tamed, with Gabriel and William Saliba aiming to nullify a player who is flanked by the in-form Riyad Mahrez as well as Kevin de Bruyne and Jack Grealish. However, there are defensive question marks over the City team who have wobbled on more than one occasion recently.
