Arsenal vs Manchester City – Man City vs Arsenal, Live Stream, Watch FA Cup 2017 Live, TV Broadcast As Arsenal and Manchester City face off in Wembley the stakes couldn’t be higher. Each manager is looking for some form of important silverware this year. Arsene Wenger may need a viable trophy to stay in his job at the end of the season. It’s looking more and more like the top four is out of reach for Wenger. This could be a big last push for him to stay on board. Beating Manchester City, and then either Chelsea or Tottenham in the final, would be huge for Wenger.
Pep Guardiola is in the same boat. Not specifically about losing his job, but this could be a consolation prize for not winning the Premier League. His team have been playing much better as of late. The attack of Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling, David Silva, and Kevin De Bruyne are primed and ready to try to overpower the Arsenal midfield and defense. Arsenal can be easily overwhelmed against attacking teams. Manchester City are primed and ready to be the team that puts Arsenal out early in the game. Whichever team can push the pace and overwhelm the other side early can potentially put the game away.

Who’s playing? Arsenal hosts Manchester City with each team’s sights set on reaching the FA Cup final. Both teams have not enjoyed stellar seasons, and realistically speaking, reaching the final of this competition could mean the only chance for silverware these teams possess. With this in mind, we can expect both managers to show the best lineup possible in order to earn a spot in the title match.
The Gunners get to this match with a wide range of absences, including Shkodran Mustafi, Lucas Pérez, David Ospina and Santi Cazorla. Striker Danny Welbeck could still make the team, but he’ll undergo a fitness test prior to the game which will determine his availability.
On the other side of the pitch, coach Pep Guardiola has been given a major boost with Gabriel Jesus’ speedy recovery. The Brazilian ace could return to action after having foot surgery earlier this semester, following a scintillating display in his first games with the Sky Blues. Ilkay Gundogan and John Stones are out for this match, while Bacary Sagna may still be able to face his former team after a late fitness test.
One more spot is up for grabs in the 2016-17 FA Cup final as Arsenal and Manchester City battle at Wembley Stadium on Sunday in the second semifinal. Both clubs have failed to meet expectations in the league and in Europe and hope to salvage something of their campaign by making it to the historic and prestigious FA Cup final. Here is how you can watch the match, stream it and everything you need to know.
Player to watch: Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez, who has been linked with Manchester City. The Chilean’s future is up in the air, but he is focused on getting another FA Cup trophy with the Gunners. Against a defense that isn’t anything great, he will get his chances in this one.
Injuries: Arsenal is without Shkodran Mustafi, Danny Welbeck, Lucas Perez, David Ospina and Santi Cazorla. City is without the injured John Stones, while striker Gabriel Jesus is on the squad just 10 weeks after breaking a bone in his foot at Bournemouth.
