Tip Arsenal - Manchester United
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer won the FA Cup twice when playing for Manchester United and now he continues his bid to win it as their manager. He's won seven out of seven since becoming their interim manager but can he make it eight in a row as they travel to Arsenal in the fourth round? United have won the FA Cup 12 times but their opponents have been victorious a record 13 times (non-league Kettering Town have scored most goals though). United do look a different team since the arrival of Solksjaer but still struggle to keep clean sheets with only one in their last 12 league and cup games. Up against an attacking Arsenal side on their home territory it's hard to see their still fragile defence keep a clean sheet.
Arsenal improved their chances of making it into the top four in the Premier League with a 2-0 home win over Chelsea last weekend. Now they turn their attention to the FA Cup with the target of winning it for the 14th time. They have won three of their last four league and cup games and six of the last seven at home. Only one of their last 28 home league and cup games have been lost but United won on their last visit to the Emirates. This should be a great game and it'll be interesting to see what line-ups are chosen. Go for over 2.5 goals to be scored in this game.
