FA Cup Quarterfinals Live Betting: Man U and ArsenalPublished March 9, 2015 by Sol FH
Can Arsenal turn their FA Cup form around with a win tonight at 19:45 (GMT)?
Arsenal have not been able to beat Manchester United in the FA Cup since 2005. It was as if they simply could not beat Man. U with Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford. Lucky for the Gunners, Ferguson is gone and new Manager Louis van Gaal is more focused on staying in the top four in the Premier League, rather than the FA Cup.
Quarterfinal, Head to Head
Unfortunately for United, Robin van Persie is out with an ankle injury and will miss tonight’s match. They will also be without Jonny Evans following his spitting incident against Newcastle. The Red Devils do have home field advantage tonight, although over 9,000 Arsenal fans will be making the trip, it’s nothing compared to the Man. U crowd.
Both teams have won the FA Cup eleven times but against one another, United definitely have the upper hand.
There are not many injuries for the Gunners; Gabriel Paulista will be out for 2-3 weeks with an injury to his hamstring. Arsenal are currently in third place in the Premier League, a single point ahead of United. They have played well this season and have not let their losing record against Man. U get in the way.
The Gunners will be expecting big things from Olivier Giroud, with seven goals and four assists in eleven appearances. Expect Arsenal to be on the attack, as Arsene Wenger knows that defensive soccer will not bring home the win.
