Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Arsenal could line up for Friday’s FA Cup fourth-round clash with Manchester City.

Arsenal could once again be without four players for Friday’s FA Cup fourth-round clash with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Former Citizens attacker Gabriel Jesus is still recovering from knee surgery, while Reiss Nelson (hamstring), Mohamed Elneny (knee) and Cedric Soares (knee) are all doubts.

However, only Jesus would have been in with a chance of starting this one, with Arteta surely seeing no need to disrupt a winning formula after nearly a week’s rest.

The only alteration from Sunday’s Premier League win over Manchester United may occur in goal, where Matt Turner – who has not done much wrong in his sporadic appearances – should feel confident of displacing Aaron Ramsdale.

Ben White was hooked at half time against the Red Devils but should continue at the back here, with William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes partnering up as new signing Jakub Kiwior awaits his debut.

Ex-Man City left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko is set to continue in his versatile role, as Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey form the base of the midfield as ever.
