Manchester City will continue their attempt to dominate England’s domestic cup competitions when they meet Arsenal in the FA Cup semifinal at Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola’s City team have already lifted the EFL Carabao Cup this season and are the holders of the FA Cup after a record-equalling 6-0 defeat of Watford in 2019 final.

Arsenal won the FA Cup in 2014, 2015 and 2017. They are in eighth place in the Premier League and are in contention to qualify for next season’s Europa League. However, a triumph in the FA Cup would guarantee a spot in the secondary European competition.
