The two teams, which have a rich history in the FA Cup, meet on Emirates on Friday night and it is expected many goals to be scored given the unreliable game of Arsenal at the back and the attacking potential of the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
Both teams have gloomy prospects in the Premier League this season, so the prestigious knockout competition is their last chance to win the trophy at the national level.
The Red Devils looked convincingly enough with the arrival of a new boss, winning seven games in a row since his appearance.
Arsenal have not been so confident recently, considering a great defeat to Liverpool and the recent loss to West Ham 1-0, which knocked the Gunners out of the race for the title and allowed their direct rivals – Manchester United to approach them in the standings.
Alexis Sanchez’s comeback to the Emirates will no doubt add an extra touch to the already hot fight, although the player has not yet received much game time since Solskjaer’s appointment as head coach.
