Arsenal managed to secure an impressive victory against Chelsea in their last Premier League outing, so they’ll be full of confidence heading into today’s game.
The Gunners will fancy themselves to go all the way in the FA Cup this season, with the chance to secure a piece of silverware in Unai Emery’s first season in charge at the Emirates.
Although, Arsenal will welcome Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United to the Emirates later on today in the fourth round of the FA Cup. The Reds Devils have gone unbeaten since Solskjaer took charge, so the Gunners will be looking to inflict defeat on their opponents in front of home support.
Nevertheless, these TWO Arsenal youngsters will make Solskjaer wish he never made the trip…
Joe Willock was the star of the show last time out in the FA Cup against Blackpool as he found the back of the net twice to help send them into the next round.
The youngster can operate in the middle of midfield or in an attacking midfield role, with the ability to score goals and provide for his teammates in the final third.
He could be a real handful for the Red Devils’ defenders to handle later on today as his pace, quick feet and skill makes him almost impossible to tackle on the field.
Eddie Nketiah is a special talent who just hasn’t been able to make the most of his chances in the first-team ranks just yet, with zero goals to his name in the five first-team matches he has appeared in up until this point.
However, he has been on absolute fire in the Premier League 2 this season, scoring six goals and providing two assists in just eight matches, so he is definitely one for the future.
The youngster’s goalscoring ability and desire to get in behind the opposition’s defence will provide United’s defenders with a stern test if he gets the nod later on today.
