The fourth round of the FA Cup kicks off on Friday when the competition’s two most successful clubs, Arsenal and Manchester United, lock horns at the Emirates Stadium.
Unai Emery’s side come into the game on the back of a convincing 2-0 victory over Chelsea and they will be eager to build on that performance as they look to end an inconsistent streak.
However, they face a serious test in the form of the resurgent Red Devils, who have strung together a record-breaking seven consecutive victories under the guidance of interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
