Manchester City vs Arsenal preview: Live stream, date, head to head, how to watch, team news, predicted lineups and moreThe FA Cup fourth round kicks off this weekend in the best way possible, with a clash between the two best sides in the Premier League this season, Arsenal and Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola and Mikel Arteta’s sides have yet to meet in the Premier League this season due to congestion caused by the death of Queen Elizabeth and the World Cup, so this will give us a sneak peek of what we might see as the title races heats up in the coming weeks and months. Both managers have won the world’s oldest cup competition, with Guardiola’s City spectacularly defeating Watford 5-0 in 2019, while Arteta picked up his first silverware as a manager in the following year’s showpiece with a 2-1 victory over Chelsea.
