ARSENAL v MANCHESTER CITY, BETTING PREVIEW & PREDICTION

ARSENAL v MANCHESTER CITY – Click here to bet

Both semi-finals will take place at Wembley and none of the sides will have home ground advantage.

Arsenal are coming off an excellent 2-1 come from behind win over Liverpool in the League on Wednesday night and the FA Cup run has been relatively untroubled opening with a home win against Leeds and following that up with away wins over Bournemouth, Portsmouth and Sheffield United in the quarter-finals.

City had to work hard for their victory over Bournemouth on Wednesday and like Arsenal they have been untroubled as they have marched through to the last 4 of this Tournament with comfortable home wins over Port Vale and Fulham followed by away wins over Sheffield Wednesday and Newcastle in the quarters.

Manchester City did the double over Arsenal in the League this season winning both fixtures 3-0 and City have won their last 7 matches against Arsenal in all competitions.

These sides last met in the FA Cup in the semi-final back in 2017 with Arsenal winning in extra time.

Betting

Arsenal 31/4

Draw 9/2

Manchester City 3/10

Suggested Bet:  Handicap, Arsenal (+2) at 9/10

I am not surprised to see City are favourites here, but I think Arsenal have been a bit under-estimated by the bookmakers, I reckon they have the ability to push this to a replay or perhaps lose by 1 goal only.

SHEFFIELD UNITED V ARSENAL – Click Here to bet

Sheffield United required extra time to beat Reading 2-1 away in their last 16 match, prior to that they had beaten Millwall on the road and AFC Fylde 2-1 at home.  They haven’t looked that good in the English Premier League since returning to action and have lost 2 in a row.

Arsenal beat Portsmouth 2-0 away in the last round, prior to that they saw off Bournemouth on the road and beat Leeds 1-0 at home. The are coming off a win away to Southampton on Thursday night in the EPL.

Betting

Sheffield United 41/20

Draw 9/4

Arsenal 14/10

Suggested Bet:  Under 2.5 goals 15/20

Both of these sides are struggling for form and I can see quite a cagey encounter with a few tired legs after a busy run of League matches.
