The FA Cup is set to return for another weekend of action as all the top English teams prepare themselves for the fourth round. Manchester City, Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are still alive in the competition.
The blockbuster clash of the fourth round will see City taking on the Gunners on Friday evening. However, there are some other fixtures which are also likely to spark the interest of football fans around the world.
Manchester City vs Arsenal
The two sides have been excellent throughout this season and are currently the top contenders for the Premier League table. Pep Guardiola’s side will come into this fixture on the back of an impressive 3-0 victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers. While Arsenal were also successful in their previous game against Manchester United, with Eddie Nketiah earning a brace.
Both teams look very strong and it is hard to separate the two here. We are backing for a high scoring draw on Friday.
Manchester City 2-2 Arsenal
Preston North End vs Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs haven’t been very convincing this season and are currently sitting fifth in the league table with 36 points. However, after losing back-to-back matches in the top-flight, they returned to winning ways at Fulham, with Harry Kane’s strike making the difference for them.
We believe Tottenham shouldn’t have any trouble to come away with a good lead from the Deepdale Stadium.
Preston North End 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur
Manchester United vs Reading
Manchester United conceded a late goal at Arsenal and that’s why, despite a good performance, they were forced to return empty handed from the Emirates Stadium. But Erik ten Hag’s men got back to winning ways emphatically on Wednesday as they thrashed Nottingham Forest 3-0 in the first-leg of the Carabao Cup semi final.
Paul Ince’s side have been enduring a difficult run of form at the moment and we don’t see them managing to secure any encouraging result at Old Trafford this weekend.
Manchester United 3-0 Reading
Brighton & Hove Albion vs Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp’s side will be looking for revenge against Brighton this weekend after the Seagulls condemned them to a 3-0 defeat in their previous meeting a fortnight ago. However, considering their struggles, we are more inclined to think that Roberto De Zerbi’s side will again prevail at the Amex Stadium.
Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 Liverpool
