Manchester City has named a strong line-up to take on Arsenal in the FA Cup on Friday night.
This will be the first time that these two sides go face to face this season and although it’s only in the FA Cup, both teams will want to go out and prove a point.
The big test will be in a few weeks from now when they meet in the Premier League but this could be a very important game to set the tempo.
