Manchester City are back at Wembley for today’s big FA Cup semi-final clash against Arsenal in what promises to be another entertaining game. For Pep Guardiola, the prestigious FA Cup offers the only hope of a trophy in his debut campaign, but it’ll be far from easy with another huge task awaiting the Blues even if they can beat Arsenal today.
The two sides have only met once at this stage of the FA Cup, back in 1932, with the Gunners coming out winners. 85 years later and City will be hoping for a different result after having to go through West Ham, Crystal Palace, Huddersfield Town and Middlesbrough to reach this stage.
Craig Pawson is today’s match referee and here are the starting line-ups selected by Guardiola and Arsene Wenger:
Manchester City XI: Bravo, Navas, Kompany, Otamendi, Clichy, Fernandinho, Touré, De Bruyne, Silva, Sané, Aguero
Arsenal XI: Cech, Gabriel, Koscielny, Holding, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Xhaka, Monreal, Özil, Sanchez, Giroud
Today’s match can be viewed on BT Sport 1 in the UK. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here.
