Arsenal and Manchester City are vying for the Premier League championship, but their rivalry also spills over into local knockout tournaments as they face off at the Etihad Stadium in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
The Gunners have a five-point lead over Man City at the top of the table and have a game in hand, so even though the Citizens are far from out of it, they will try to snag a victory in a different tournament knowing they might not be able to catch their rivals in league play.
Knowing there are still numerous contests to compete in, it will be interesting to watch which manager fields a first-choice lineup. The Premier League title race is undoubtedly of the utmost importance, but both teams are also still in the running in other European competitions, with Man City preparing for a match against RB Leipzig in the Champions League Round of 16 and Arsenal anticipating their Europa League Round of 16 matchup.
At the conclusion of this game (assuming we don't go to a replay), one significant Premier League challenger will end up being eliminated from both domestic tournaments earlier than planned.
