  • Arsenal have won 4 of 15 meetings with City since 2010 - Drawn 6, Lost 5
  • The last 4 meetings between the pair have all gone over 2.5 goals
  • Sergio Aguero has scored 13 goals in 12 starts in the FA Cup

Head-To-Head

City are currently seven points ahead of Arsenal in the Premier League table but the Gunners have endured a torrid time of it in recent months as the growing 'Wenger Out' brigade are finding their voice following a run of four wins from ten games (drawn one, lost five).

Arsenal are in danger of missing out on a top-four finish, and the FA Cup, a tournament they won in 2014 and 2015, is arguably keeping their season alive.

However, the North London outfit are 10/3 underdogs (Bet 365) for Sunday's match and they have won just four of the past fifteen Arsenal v Man City fixtures (drawn six, lost five) since 2010, including a 2-2 draw and a 2-1 defeat this season.

Goals Galore

This a fixture that virtually guarantees goals as there hasn't been a goalless draw since 2011 and the last four meetings have all seen both teams score. Each of the last four have also gone over 2.5 goals and this match seems likely to follow a similar trend, with Bet Victor going 8/15 for over 2.5 goals and 11/8 for over 3.5 goals this weekend.

Both teams are far stronger going forward than they are defensively, with Arsenal keeping just three clean sheets in ten (with two of those coming against Sutton and Lincoln) and City managing only one clean sheet in six in all formats.

Goalscorers

Sergio Aguero is 7/2 to score the first goal (Coral) of what promises to be a high scoring encounter and the Argentine has notched eleven goals in his last eleven appearances in all competitions.

Aguero is something of an FA Cup specialist as he has notched 13 goals in 12 starts in this competition during his time in England, while Theo Walcott is something of a specialist in this fixture as he has scored five in his past four starts against City and he is 9/1 to be first goalscorer (Bet 365).
