    Man Utd transfer has Casemiro feeling ‘like a kid’ as Brazilian stars on the back of Real Madrid move

    Casemiro says his big-money transfer to Manchester United has him feeling “like a 15-year-old kid”, with the midfielder playing with a smile again.

    WHAT HAPPENED? The Brazil international completed a £60 million ($74m) move to Old Trafford from Real Madrid during the summer of 2022, with the 30-year-old walking away from Santiago Bernabeu as a five-time Champions League winner. Questions were asked of whether Casemiro could make a decisive impact in English football, but he has sparked United’s engine room into life while becoming a talismanic presence for Erik ten Hag’s side.

    WHAT THEY SAID: Casemiro has said of a fresh start breathing new life into his game: “When you arrive at a new club, you always dream of making history… especially if we see the greatness of this club. We know the history. But of course, I was aware of needing some time to adapt and of the rivals having a long-term plan before ours, like Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool. They all have managers that have been there for a while and, therefore, they have an advantage. I’m happy with my adaptation here, my team-mates and the staff are really helping me… also with the English language, it’s been quite hard but I’m really trying to get better.”

    He added: “Everyone here has been lovely with me and since the first day I feel at home here. I appreciate all the effort that the club has done to bring me here, John (Murtough) included. I’m very comfortable at Manchester United, extremely happy to be here and enjoying every moment like a 15-year-old kid! But the most important is to see the team growing.”

    THE BIGGER PICTURE: Casemiro has helped to make United competitive at the very highest level once more, with greater consistency added to their game, and he registered two goals – taking him to four for the club overall – during a 3-1 win over Reading in the FA Cup fourth round.

    WHAT NEXT? United have more big games approaching, with their run through to the middle of February including the second leg of a Carabao Cup semi-final clash with Nottingham Forest, back-to-back Premier League meetings with old adversaries Leeds and a trip to Camp Nou to face Barcelona in the first leg of a Europa League knockout play-off.

    Man Utd midfielder enjoying every moment after FA Cup brilliance

    Casemiro scored twice against Reading in Saturday's FA Cup win against Reading; After the game, he said: "I'm very comfortable at Manchester United, extremely happy to be here and enjoying every moment like a 15-year-old kid!"

    Casemiro says he is enjoying life at Manchester United "like a 15-year-old kid" after his FA Cup double against Reading, and says the club are "on a good path" to winning titles.

    It was a Brazilian trio that inspired Erik ten Hag's side in their 3-1 win on Saturday evening. As well as Casemiro's goals, a flick from Fred added the third, while the impressive Antony was named player of the match.

    While there may have been some raised eyebrows when Man Utd agreed a £70m deal for the 30-year-old midfielder in the summer, the former Real Madrid man has become instrumental in the club's recent return to form.

    Casemiro has also been effervescent in his praise for Man Utd since his arrival, likening his enjoyment to teenage excitement.

    "When you arrive at a new club, you always dream of making history... especially if we see the greatness of this club," the Brazil international said. "We know the history.

    "But of course, I was aware of needing some time to adapt and of the rivals having a long-term plan before ours, like Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool.

    "They all have managers that have been there for a while and, therefore, they have an advantage.

    "I'm happy with my adaptation here, my team-mates and the staff are really helping me... also with the English language, it's been quite hard but I'm really trying to get better.

    "Everyone here has been lovely with me and since the first day I feel at home here. I appreciate all the effort that the club has done to bring me here, John [Murtough] included.

    "I'm very comfortable at Manchester United, extremely happy to be here and enjoying every moment like a 15-year-old kid!

    "But the most important is to see the team growing."

    United are still fighting on all four fronts and face a Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Nottingham Forest on Wednesday evening, live on Sky Sports.

    They already hold a 3-0 aggregate lead from the first leg, aiming to reach the February final at Wembley and win their first trophy since 2017.

    "We have to see what the reality is and we are still a club under construction," Casemiro said when it was put to him that his decision to join the club at such a low ebb surprised many.

    "Of course we are already respected, the opponents know we're strong, that we have good dynamics, the manager is doing a good job, the players as well.

    "Manchester United is a big club... in my opinion, if we look at the titles, it's the biggest in England.

    "In our lives we have to have goals and challenges. It was a challenge for me to keep growing and developing in my career.

    "The job is on with a lot of humility by knowing there's a lot to improve, but all the players need to be congratulated now.

    "We're on a good path. This is the way to win titles, but we need to keep growing.

    "We know we're progressing within a plan, step by step we're building a well-structured team and this is important.

    "To win titles in the future, you have to build a solid foundation."

    Roy Keane described Casemiro as a "huge signing" for Manchester United and the kind of personality the club needed.

    "He's been a huge signing," Keane told ITV. "Over the last few years for Man Utd, particularly in the middle of the park, they've lacked a quality player with a big personality, a guy with a bit of presence.

    "He's a top-quality player. We see it week in, week out. He affects games.

    "Before he came there was this perception he's a sitting midfielder because of working with different players at Real Madrid, players who are more attack-minded," said Keane. "But we're now seeing over the last few months he's got so much quality going forward in terms of the final pass and he's getting goals, as well as being very, very good defensively.

    "A huge signing for Man Utd and a big personality, which Man Utd needed."

    Club captain Harry Maguire described his team-mate as "a phenomenal player" who has "improved the team, improved the morale, improved the performance", while Ten Hag explained how Casemiro helps United to execute their tactical approach with the ball.

    "We know he's a great player," Ten Hag told ITV. "In that midfield in Madrid, with Kroos and Modric, it was great.

    "We see offensively he has a part [to play]. What I like is dynamic football with variations, with many position switches. We have to [make] the opponent think so we can take benefit of it."

    Another Saturday, another chance to win £250,000 with Super 6. Play for free, entries by 3pm.

    Spurs expect Richarlison to make quick return from latest injury

    Tottenham Hotspur assistant coach Cristian Stellini has reassured the club’s supporters that Richarlison has not suffered another significant injury after the Brazil international missed Saturday’s 3-0 FA Cup victory at Preston.

    Richarlison, 25, is yet to start a game for Spurs since the 2022 World Cup after sustaining a hamstring injury.

    He was expected to return to the fray against Preston but was instead left in London, with Stellini admitting the forward had suffered an abductor problem.

    The Italian said the injury was not serious, however, with Richarlison expected to return to training next week as Tottenham prepare to take on Manchester City, the reigning Premier League champions.

    Stellini said: “He has a small problem in the last few days. We tried to recover him, but it was not a good idea. We had just Harry Kane sick and so it was not a good idea to risk him.

    “We will find Richarlison next week.”

    Asked if Richarlison had suffered a setback in his recovery from a hamstring complaint, Stellini replied: “No, no, no, it was a different injury. He recovered well. He has a small problem in his adductor, but nothing serious.”

    Spurs do have additional cover up front after they brought in Arnaut Danjuma from Villarreal, and Stellini was delighted to see the Netherlands international make an immediate impact by scoring the third and final goal at Preston.

    “For Danjuma, it’s a good start for him to score in the first game but we are looking forward to working with him, we have to discover this guy,” Stellini said. “He can play many positions in the front three.”

    Casemiro scores twice as Man Utd beat Reading in FA Cup

    MANCHESTER, England, Jan 28 (Reuters) - Manchester United's Brazil midfielder Casemiro scored twice as they beat second-tier Reading 3-1 to reach the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday but Marcus Rashford was denied a record.

    Visitors Reading were riding their luck and holding on until Casemiro opened the scoring in the 54th minute, cleverly dinking the ball over goalkeeper Joe Lumley from Antony's pass.

    The former Real Madrid player extended United's lead four minutes later with a fizzing shot from 25 metres.

    Fred made it 3-0 with a backheel before Reading had former Liverpool and England striker Andy Carroll sent off for a second yellow card earned for a sliding tackle on Casemiro.

    Reading, managed by former title-winning United midfielder Paul Ince, scored a consolation through Amadou Salif Mbengue.

    Rashford thought he had become the first United player to score in 10 successive matches at Old Trafford when he netted in the first half but his effort was ruled out for offside by VAR.

    Reading had almost taken the lead against the run of play just before the interval when Junior Hoilett had a great chance but his close-range shot was well saved by David de Gea.

    There was some criticism when five-times Champions League winner Casemiro joined United in August with several pundits describing the move as a panic buy.

    But he has proved instrumental for United this season and was given a standing ovation after being substituted.

    "He's done what he was brought in to do, He's a phenomenal player. You don't win what he's won without being a top player," United skipper Harry Maguire said.

    "He's improved the team, the morale and the performance."

  •  Two goals from Casemiro in the space of four second half minutes put them on their way before Fred sealed victory in a night where Antony played the best game in a United shirt Reading had an even tougher mountain to climb after veteran striker Andy Carroll was sent off on 65 minutes and despite a goal from substitute Amadou Mbengue shortly after that it proved to be a just a consolation United dominated possession throughout the opening exchanges peppering Joe Lumley s goal with Bruno Fernandes Antony and Wout Weghorst all having early efforts that went wide Marcus Rashford forced a decent save from a free kick as he went in search of his tenth goal in ten home games and shortly after that he thought he had achieved the impressive feat on 36 minutes after heading home from close range albeit for Weghorst to be ruled offside in the build up following a VAR check United continued to press for the opener but wasted several more chances and almost headed into the break a goal down as Junior Hoilett forced David de Gea into a smart save with his legs after robbing Tyrell Malacia of the ball in the box But the home devil upped the ante in the second half and a moment of brilliance from Antony saw the Brazilian pull off a neat no look pass into the box as Casemiro ran onto it and dinked the ball over the goalkeeper to finally open the scoring on 54 minutes It didn t take long before the former Real Madrid man had his second This time a delightful curled effort from 25 yards into the far post left Lumley no chance Fred soon joined the action off the bench and showed some Brazilian flair of his own as he cheekily flicked the ball between his legs at the near post from a corner to make it 3 0 It was a night to forget for CReading striker Carroll who headed for an early bath on 65 minutes after picking up a second yellow for a late clumsy tackle on Casemiro Reading oddly responded by pulling a goal back through substitute Mbengue heading home from a corner But United s impressive displays under Ten Hag continue particularly at home with Old Trafford on its way back to the fortress it was once under Sir Alex Ferguson and they ll be in the hat for Monday s draw 90th min Antony drives another shot from distance but it s easily blocked The Brazilian has been one of the standout performers tonight and deserves a goal but it looks like he ll have to settle for just an assist this evening Four added minutes 84th min Reading are getting the ball higher up the pitch but United can now afford to be patient with their play and take the time with a two goal cushion Ince is fairly animated on the touchline too trying to spur his team on to finish strongly 80th min Garnacho Elanga and Pellistri are all on and playing with some attacking intent The former has an early chance but his shot is wasted Mbengue has only just come on and scores instantly to give the visitors hope He heads home from a corner Fred gets in on the act A low cross from corner sees Fred flick the ball between his legs at the front post A lovely finish Rashford and Fernandes are taken off after and Garnacho and Pellistri are on 67th min RED CARD Carroll is sent off for a second yellow A stupidly late sliding tackle sees him take out Casemiro and he can have no complaints 62nd min Fornah is on for Loum as Ince makes his first change 60th min Carroll goes into the book for a foul on Malacia Casemiro again Another brilliant finish but this one is all of his own doing 57th min Fred is on for Eriksen in an early change from Ten Hag Fred lays off a short pass to

    Manchester United vs. Reading result, highlights as Casemiro shines in FA Cup win
     Two goals from Casemiro in the space of four second half minutes put them on their way before Fred sealed victory in a night where Antony played the best game in a United shirt Reading had an even tougher mountain to climb after veteran striker Andy Carroll was sent off on 65 minutes and despite a goal from substitute Amadou Mbengue shortly after that it proved to be a just a consolation United dominated possession throughout the opening exchanges peppering Joe Lumley s goal with Bruno Fernandes Antony and Wout Weghorst all having early efforts that went wide Marcus Rashford forced a decent save from a free kick as he went in search of his tenth goal in ten home games and shortly after that he thought he had achieved the impressive feat on 36 minutes after heading home from close range albeit for Weghorst to be ruled offside in the build up following a VAR check United continued to press for the opener but wasted several more chances and almost headed into the break a goal down as Junior Hoilett forced David de Gea into a smart save with his legs after robbing Tyrell Malacia of the ball in the box But the home devil upped the ante in the second half and a moment of brilliance from Antony saw the Brazilian pull off a neat no look pass into the box as Casemiro ran onto it and dinked the ball over the goalkeeper to finally open the scoring on 54 minutes It didn t take long before the former Real Madrid man had his second This time a delightful curled effort from 25 yards into the far post left Lumley no chance Fred soon joined the action off the bench and showed some Brazilian flair of his own as he cheekily flicked the ball between his legs at the near post from a corner to make it 3 0 It was a night to forget for CReading striker Carroll who headed for an early bath on 65 minutes after picking up a second yellow for a late clumsy tackle on Casemiro Reading oddly responded by pulling a goal back through substitute Mbengue heading home from a corner But United s impressive displays under Ten Hag continue particularly at home with Old Trafford on its way back to the fortress it was once under Sir Alex Ferguson and they ll be in the hat for Monday s draw 90th min Antony drives another shot from distance but it s easily blocked The Brazilian has been one of the standout performers tonight and deserves a goal but it looks like he ll have to settle for just an assist this evening Four added minutes 84th min Reading are getting the ball higher up the pitch but United can now afford to be patient with their play and take the time with a two goal cushion Ince is fairly animated on the touchline too trying to spur his team on to finish strongly 80th min Garnacho Elanga and Pellistri are all on and playing with some attacking intent The former has an early chance but his shot is wasted Mbengue has only just come on and scores instantly to give the visitors hope He heads home from a corner Fred gets in on the act A low cross from corner sees Fred flick the ball between his legs at the front post A lovely finish Rashford and Fernandes are taken off after and Garnacho and Pellistri are on 67th min RED CARD Carroll is sent off for a second yellow A stupidly late sliding tackle sees him take out Casemiro and he can have no complaints 62nd min Fornah is on for Loum as Ince makes his first change 60th min Carroll goes into the book for a foul on Malacia Casemiro again Another brilliant finish but this one is all of his own doing 57th min Fred is on for Eriksen in an early change from Ten Hag Fred lays off a short pass to him from 25 yards out and he curls it first time past Lumley into the far post A slight deflection from the defender may have helped it on his way but take nothing away from the strike The boys from

    Manchester United vs. Reading result, highlights as Casemiro shines in FA Cup win

    Two goals from Casemiro in the space of four second-half minutes put them on their way before Fred sealed victory in a night where Antony played the best game in a United shirt. Reading had an even tougher mountain to climb after veteran striker Andy Carroll was sent off on 65 minutes, and despite a goal from substitute Amadou Mbengue shortly after that, it proved to be a just a consolation.

    United dominated possession throughout the opening exchanges, peppering Joe Lumley's goal with Bruno Fernandes, Antony and Wout Weghorst all having early efforts that went wide.

    Marcus Rashford forced a decent save from a free-kick as he went in search of his tenth goal in ten home games and shortly after that he thought he had achieved the impressive feat on 36 minutes after heading home from close range, albeit for Weghorst to be ruled offside in the build-up following a VAR check.

    United continued to press for the opener but wasted several more chances and almost headed into the break a goal down as Junior Hoilett forced David de Gea into a smart save with his legs after robbing Tyrell Malacia of the ball in the box.

    But the home devil upped the ante in the second half and a moment of brilliance from Antony saw the Brazilian pull off a neat no-look pass into the box as Casemiro ran onto it and dinked the ball over the goalkeeper to finally open the scoring on 54 minutes.

    It didn't take long before the former Real Madrid man had his second. This time a delightful curled effort from 25 yards into the far post left Lumley no chance. Fred soon joined the action off the bench and showed some Brazilian flair of his own as he cheekily flicked the ball between his legs at the near post from a corner to make it 3-0.

    It was a night to forget for CReading striker Carroll who headed for an early bath on 65 minutes after picking up a second yellow for a late, clumsy tackle on Casemiro. Reading oddly responded by pulling a goal back through substitute Mbengue heading home from a corner.

    But United's impressive displays under Ten Hag continue, particularly at home with Old Trafford on its way back to the fortress it was once under Sir Alex Ferguson, and they'll be in the hat for Monday's draw.

    90th min: Antony drives another shot from distance but it's easily blocked. The Brazilian has been one of the standout performers tonight and deserves a goal but it looks like he'll have to settle for just an assist this evening. Four added minutes.

    84th min: Reading are getting the ball higher up the pitch but United can now afford to be patient with their play and take the time with a two-goal cushion. Ince is fairly animated on the touchline too trying to spur his team on to finish strongly.

    80th min: Garnacho, Elanga and Pellistri are all on and playing with some attacking intent. The former has an early chance but his shot is wasted.

    Mbengue has only just come on and scores instantly to give the visitors hope. He heads home from a corner.

    Fred gets in on the act. A low cross from corner sees Fred flick the ball between his legs at the front post. A lovely finish. Rashford and. Fernandes are taken off after and Garnacho and Pellistri are on.

    67th min: RED CARD! Carroll is sent off for a second yellow. A stupidly late sliding tackle sees him take out Casemiro and he can have no complaints.

    62nd min: Fornah is on for Loum as Ince makes his first change.

    60th min: Carroll goes into the book for a foul on Malacia.

    Casemiro again! Another brilliant finish but this one is all of his own doing.

    57th min: Fred is on for Eriksen in an early change from Ten Hag. Fred lays off a short pass to him from 25 yards out and he curls it first time past Lumley into the far post. A slight deflection from the defender may have helped it on his way but take nothing away from the strike.

    The boys from Brazil combine! Antony plays in a delightful through ball for Casemiro who runs in behind the backline and lofts the ball over Lumley with a delicate dinked finish. A lovely team move. You can't say they haven't deserved it.

    49th min: Bit of a break in play here as Hoilett has taken a whack to the face and is bleeding a fair bit from his nose. He's getting the full shove the tissue up the nose treatment though and will carry on.

    45th min: Big chance for Reading! Malacia is caught on the back foot in the box and Hoilett robs him of the ball to get the shot away from close range and De Gea saves with his legs.

    43rd min: Reading are holding on just to get to half-time now. The two forwards have barely seen a touch of the ball all game and are having to come deep to get involved in the action.

    41st min: Fernandes plays in Casemiro who goes down in the box and United want a penalty. But the contact from Hoilett isn't enough for a spot-kick who wins the ball in the tackle.

    36th min: GOAL RULED OUT! Rashford has the ball in the back of the net after heading in from close range but Weghorst, who had headed the ball back across goal to his teammate, is offside following a VAR check.

    32nd min: A lovely run from Antony sees him cut in from the right wing before playing a neat through ball into the box but Fernandes snaps at the shot and it's dragged wide.

    26th min: Eriksen has a shot from distance but again the Reading defence are in the right place at the right time and block the shot.

    21st min: Holmes makes a brilliant last-ditch block to deny Weghorst who did well to react to a loose ball in the box and get his shot underway on the turn. It feels like a matter of time until United break the deadlock...

    18th min: Another decent chance for the home side, this time Fernandes passes the ball into Antony on the right wing, who has time to take a touch, look up and curls one into the far left post but it goes just wide.

    14th min: Rashford fires a free-kick from 20 yards straight at Lumley, who punches it out and Eriksen follows up but his goal-bound effort is well blocked.

    12th min: It's all United so far with possession and Wan-Bissaka has been very lively down the right wing. Reading yet to get going.

    8th min: Eriksen whips in a free-kick from the left that goes a few inches wide of the far post.

    5th min: Nice play on the right hand side sees Wan-Bissaka drill the ball across goal and Weghorst gets a flick but it's deflected behind.

    3rd min: A cagey start so far has already seen Eriksen try and play a ball over the top from midfield for Rashford to run on to but Reading's backline spot it early. Will no doubt be plenty of that tonight...

    20 mins from KO: Elsewhere, there's been plenty of FA Cup ties already today and Tottenham are currently 2-0 up against Preston with 15 minutes to go. Here's a recap of all today's 4th round results.

    40 mins from KO: Ince knows all too well about the famous Old Trafford having spent six years there and has warned his players to try and relax and focus on playing without pressure "Erik ten Hag put on a few kids against Nottingham Forest (in the 3-0 Carabao Cup win on Wednesday night) so you're wondering if they will play. But you've got to forget about Manchester United though and prepare for the atmosphere. "There will be 70,000 fans there, Saturday night, 8pm and you have to be prepared to deal with the atmosphere of what Old Trafford brings. That's something most of the players won't have experienced. It's more about that mentally than playing the game. "I've been lucky to walk out at Old Trafford in front of a full house. It can be intimidating and when you've not done it before you can get stuck under the lights and be in awe of it. "That can affect your performance as a player so these are the things I will be talking to the players about [ahead of the game]. It's about being relaxed. There is no pressure on us to win the game. Obviously I want to win the game, I'm not going there for a sightseeing trip that's for sure. Some people do because it's a lovely day out but for us, we have a chance of causing an upset."

    60 mins from KO: The teams are in!

    75 mins from KO: The Red Devils secured a 3-1 victory over Everton in the third round to get to this stage, while Reading beat fellow second-tier side Watford 2-0 at home.

    These two teams have met previously in two third-round victories in the FA Cup with United winning 4-0 in 2017 and 2-0 in 2019.

    We'll be bringing you team news in 15 mins.

    90 minutes from KO: Man of the moment Marcus Rashford has been in sensational form lately, scoring 10 goals in his last 10 matches in all competitions, but Erik ten Hag could opt to rest him tonight.

    With the likes of Alejandro Garnacho, Facundo Pellistri and Anthony Elanga all chomping at the bit to impress their boss, the trio will be hoping for minutes tonight and will fancy their chances against lower league opposition.

    120 mins from kickoff: Hello and welcome to The Sporting News' live coverage of today's FA Cup match. A place in the fifth round is at stake and United are heavy favourites to win as Erik ten Hag's side look to continue an impressive run in 2023 that has seen them win five games from seven in all competitions, losing once.

    Ten Hag has given certain first-team players a break for this game, with Lisandro Martinez still being eased back into action following the World Cup.

    Harry Maguire comes into the defence after missing the Forest match.

    Luke Shaw and Diogo Dalot miss out through injury. Ten Hag hinted that Jadon Sancho could make his long-awaited return to the matchday squad, having not played for the club since October 22, but he's not been included tonight.

  •  ETIHAD STADIUM MANCHESTER Nathan Ake was Manchester City s unlikely hero as he snatched a 1 0 win for Pep Guardiola s side against Premier League leaders Arsenal in the fourth round of the FA Cup Mikel Arteta s Gunners who are five points clear of champions City at the Premier League summit with a game in hand made six changes to the side that beat Manchester United 3 2 last weekend but Takehiro Tomiyasu and full debutant Leandro Trossard each drew fine saves from City keeper Stefan Ortega in the home goal before halftime Kevin De Bruyne curled a sumptuous 25 yard strike just wide but the clearest chance of the opening 45 minutes fell Arsenal s way when Eddie Nketiah volleyed wide from Trossard s cross at the near post City made the visitors pay for that wastefulness via an unlikely source with left sided defender Ake rolling home a right footed finish from Jack Grealish s pass after substitute Julian Alvarez drilled a shot against the post Goals MCI Nathan Ake Jack Grealish 64th min Trossard was the pick of the Arsenal attack as Ake went about his primary job of shackling the in form Bukayo Saka impressively In the sixth minute the Belgium international cut a ball across the City box that Tomiyasu hammered goalwards to draw a superb save from Ortega The Arsenal left winger then went it alone to again find City s cup goalkeeper up to the challenge handing 18 year old Rico Lewis the toughest night of his fledgling professional career to date De Bruyne going close to the spectacular merely served to underline how peripheral he d been certainly in comparison to his effervescent compatriot Trossard who should have had an assist to his name when Nketiah erred It fell to Ake to show the sort of composure that deserted the forwards on display including Erling Haaland who endured a frustrating evening Grealish expertly kept the ball alive after Alvarez struck the upright drawing Tomiyasu and Saka towards him and opening up the pass for Ake to finish with unexpected nonchalance Arsenal pressed hard to force the replay that neither manager could really have wanted with substitute Gabriel Martinelli a livewire presence who forced Ortega to stay sharp until the last Despite finishing up on the wrong end of the scoreline Arsenal showed City they will not be going anywhere in this season s title race A much changed team had the better of the first half against what was more or less Guardiola s first choice outfield XI at this moment in time The Gunners character was again on display in the way they responded to Ake s goal A narrow defeat with pride intact and the capacity to focus all energies on the Premier League charge sorry Europa League feels like a pretty good outcome for Mikel Arteta Manchester City s ample depth at centre back will again be tested after John Stones pulled up with a hamstring injury at the end of the first half Aymeric Laporte came on for the England man and Ruben Dias remained an unused substitute an unimaginable state of affairs over recent years A large part of the reason for this change in the hierarchy is Ake s form and versatility Guardiola has praised the Dutchman as his best player this season when it comes to defending the 18 yard box Ake more than lived up to that billing as he came out on top against the brilliant Saka His goal was a surprising and deserved cherry on the cake City struggled during the first half with their normally slick passing game disjointed It s not the first time that has been the case since the World Cup The answer may lie with a man who lifted that trophy last month While some of Guardiola s players rely on collective rhythm to help them show their best form Alvarez simply burrows into games harasses opponents and jackhammers around until he gets what he wants The Argentina star caused the goal and gave the attackers around him fresh impetus during the decisive phase of the game Fulltime City get over the line That was hard work for Pep Guardiola s men who showed the necessary improvement after a pretty listless first half We ll all try to extrapolate things we ve learned tonight in the context of the title race Arsenal for their part were dominant during the first half and pushed City back after going behind They played with a palpable swagger despite Mikel Arteta making six changes to his starting lineup City were not at their best but refused to go away and showed an iron will to win which might be viewed ominously in north London 90th minute 2 Stefan Ortega launches a pass out to the right to Kyle Walker that s been a bit of a game changing ploy from Guardiola in all honesty The England man darts inside and draws a foul from his old mate Oleksandr Zinchenko who is booked 90th minute Four minutes of stoppage time coming up If only Arsenal had recent experience of stunning a Manchester team in stoppage time 89th minute Manuel Akanji comes charging out to challenge Granit Xhaka successfully The centre back urges his colleagues to press out with him Brave defending 87th minute Granit Xhaka slips through a pass for Gabriel Martinelli Stefan Ortega is out to snaffle it but City haven t really worked out what to do with the Brazil winger so far 85th minute The next corner is cleared but City are starting to feel a bit like they re hanging on 84th minute Corner to Arsenal There s a delay and Kyle Walker and Granit Xhaka exchange a few observations The corner is headed clear at the near post but Arsenal are on the second ball Substitute Gabriel Martinelli darts towards goal but the angle is tight and Ortega is able to push behind 82nd minute Julian Alvarez lines up another shot from outside the box but this one is straightforward enough for Matt Turner 78th minute Jack Grealish loops the delivery just over Aymeric Laporte and Rodri Julian Alvarez retrieves the loose ball of course he does and whips a devilish ball in that Matt Turner is equal to with a fine punch 77th minute Granit Xhaka does one of those daft Granit Xhaka fouls we ve not really seen this season Bernardo Silva goes sprawling and City have a free kick in a good position on the right 76th minute Not sure how Fabio Vieira s Brummie is but Jack Grealish just offered him one or two choice observations 72nd minute It s been a strong response from Arsenal who have remained on the front foot since Ake s goal Mikel Arteta won t like being behind but in the bigger picture it s another big tick for his title aspirants Bernardo Silva and Martin Odegaard are coming on for their respective sides Bukayo Saka takes a rest for Arsenal and Kevin De Bruyne s night is also done 66th minute Almost the equaliser Aymeric Laporte gets a vital touch that goes neither towards his own goal or allows Eddie Nketiah a tap in Stefan Ortega pouches the resulting corner to roars from the home support Oleksandr Zinchenko has replaced Kieran Tierney at left back for the Gunners 64th minute GOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLL Nathan Ake An unlikely hero has the breakthrough for Manchester City Julian Alvarez who has really changed the whole feel of the City attack since coming on let rip with a low drive from long range that cannoned back off the post Jack Grealish kept the ball alive drew a couple of defenders and passed to Ake who nonchalantly guided the ball home with his weaker right foot 62nd minute Searching ball for Bukayo Saka in behind Nathan Ake but the Dutchman deals with it well 58th minute Here come Julian Alvarez and Kyle Walker Riyad Mahrez and Rico Lewis are the men to make way 56th minute Now a collision between Erling Haaland and Matt Turner Think of Haaland in this situation as the world s biggest clumsiest toddler Turner is fine with it all laughs and giggles between the two Julian Alvarez is also about to come on for City 55th minute Matt Turner stays on and City decide to see how healthy he really is Kevin De Bruyne gets down the inside right channel and drives a ball into the six yard box Turner gets down to deal with it well 54th minute Matt Turner is sitting on the turf having his shoulder looked at This could be the end of Aaroin Ramsdale s night off Meanwhile it looks like Pep Guardiola is bringing Kyle Walker on Walker is now on the receiving end of lots of instructions and pointing Like Homer just before Mr Burns sends him out to bat 52nd minute Better from City Just after Matt Turner unconvincingly punches a De Bruyne special clear Rico Lewis burst into the box but fires into the side netting at the near post 51st minute Kevin De Bruyne gets some room to stretch his legs in midfield He looks for Erling Haaland but it s a predictable pass and Takehiro Tomiyasu and William Saliba close the door 49th minute Booming it to Erling Haaland is still the order of the day from Pep Guardiola what would Johan Cruyff say Takehiro Tomiyasu and Matt Turner tidy up on this occasion 46th minute We re back underway William Saliba is on for Arsenal with Mikel Arteta clearly deciding Rob Holding on a yellow against Erling Haaland was too much of a risk Halftime Goalless at the break with Jack Grealish offering referee Paul Tierney a home truth or two as they plod down the tunnel Quietly that s a huge half for Arsenal in the context of what they re aiming for this season With six changes they ve faced up to City s first choice outfield line up and been the better team City back up goalkeeper Stefan Ortega is the only reason they re not winning 45th minute 4 Here s Aymeric Laporte His supreme range of passing from the back might help City here because they ve been unusually ropey in that department 45th minute 2 That s the end of John Stones night Aymeric Laporte will come on after he s removed his snood and several other layers of clothing It s that sort of night in Manchester City continue with 10 men for now 45th minute Two minutes of additional time have been signalled but there ll be more John Stones is down after grabbing at his hamstring It doesn t look great for the England defender 44th minute Rodri uncharacteristically shells possession in his own half underlining City s total lack of fluency here Manuel Akanji thunders into a couple of vital challenges first on Eddie Nketiah then on Fabio Vieira City look to break but the long ball to Riyad Mahrez somewhat inevitably skips out for a throw in 42nd minute Wrestlemania MCR between Erling Haaland and Rob Holding continues The Arsenal man is booked 40th minute A hairy moment for Stefan Ortega who has to crunch into Eddie Nketiah on the right hand side of his box but it s a fair challenge City go up the other end but Jack Grealish s cross is way over Erling Haaland and therefore everyone 39th minute Another very un Guardiola half chance Haaland dashes after a bouncing ball over the top barges into Gabriel and the resulting prod is way off target 35th minute Haaland takes a heavy touch then puts a simple pass out for a throw The Arsenal fans respond in the pantomime style 34th minute Another chance for Arsenal who have been the better team Leandro Trossard down the left and his cross is lovely Eddie Nketiah can t sort out his body position and skews a volley wide at the near post 31st minute Erling Haaland s back on his feet after a bit of treatment Pep Guardiola and Mikel Arteta used the stoppage as an opportunity to gather their teams in huddles John Stones is still getting an earful from Guardiola before the action resumes with a drop ball 29th minute Erling Haaland goes down clutching his head after a challenge with Rob Holding Referee Paul Tierney waves play on and the City fans are furious Tierney then decides actually that s a head injury so halts Arsenal s break The Gunners fans are furious Well done ref 25th minute Oohhhh Kevin De Bruyne The Belgian maestro who has barely been involved chops in onto his left foot and curls a glorious strike just wide I was sitting right down the barrel of that shot and was fairly convinced it was going in 22nd minute Stefan Ortega again Bukayo Saka launches an Arsenal break and his pass intended for Eddie Nketiah is seized upon by Fabio Vieira He passes to Leandro Trossard down the left and the winger s shot across goal is brilliantly kept out by the City keeper 18th minute Takehiro Tomiyasu scampers after Jack Grealish and fouls him The City winger isn t best pleased The game has lost much of its early flow and gotten a little scrappy 16th minute For the second time this evening City s teenage right back Rico Lewis gets penalised for a foul throw 15th minute An Arsenal free kick is lofted into the box The ball drops to Bukayo Saka but his shot is blocked at close quarters 13th minute Arsenal let Ilkay Gundogan dribble unchallenged for about 40 yards Which is nice of them I suppose He passes to Jack Grealish whose left wing cross is easily snaffled by Matt Turner 11th minute It s maybe instructive that City s best moments have come from looking for Haaland early Despite their six changes in terms of overall football Arsenal have been the smoother operators so far 9th minute Erling Haaland vs Rob Holding might end up being the whole ball game here The Arsenal man loses his footing and Haaland looks to be in Matt Turner comes out of his area to make an expert slide challenge and from the bouncing ball Haaland tries an overhead kick that Takehiro Tomiyasu is able to mop up Remember that Zlatan Ibrahimovic overhead kick against England Sort of that idea 5th minute Excellent save from Stefan Ortega Leandro Trossard gets his first chance to stretch his legs down the Arsenal left he cuts inside and his cross bounces to Takehiro Tomiyasu The right back absolutely welts his shot and the City keeper showed razor sharp reflexes to push clear 3rd minute Arsenal popping the ball around confidently at the back but they overcook it and Jack Grealish intercepts Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland combine before Rodri blasts harmlessly over from 25 yards 2nd minute Interesting Arsenal set up for a short City goalkick and Stefan Ortega goes long Erling Haaland and Rob Holding get into an unseemly grapple The referee gives the free kick Arsenal s way

    Man City vs Arsenal score, result, highlights as Nathan Ake gives Pep Guardiola’s men FA Cup win
     ETIHAD STADIUM MANCHESTER Nathan Ake was Manchester City s unlikely hero as he snatched a 1 0 win for Pep Guardiola s side against Premier League leaders Arsenal in the fourth round of the FA Cup Mikel Arteta s Gunners who are five points clear of champions City at the Premier League summit with a game in hand made six changes to the side that beat Manchester United 3 2 last weekend but Takehiro Tomiyasu and full debutant Leandro Trossard each drew fine saves from City keeper Stefan Ortega in the home goal before halftime Kevin De Bruyne curled a sumptuous 25 yard strike just wide but the clearest chance of the opening 45 minutes fell Arsenal s way when Eddie Nketiah volleyed wide from Trossard s cross at the near post City made the visitors pay for that wastefulness via an unlikely source with left sided defender Ake rolling home a right footed finish from Jack Grealish s pass after substitute Julian Alvarez drilled a shot against the post Goals MCI Nathan Ake Jack Grealish 64th min Trossard was the pick of the Arsenal attack as Ake went about his primary job of shackling the in form Bukayo Saka impressively In the sixth minute the Belgium international cut a ball across the City box that Tomiyasu hammered goalwards to draw a superb save from Ortega The Arsenal left winger then went it alone to again find City s cup goalkeeper up to the challenge handing 18 year old Rico Lewis the toughest night of his fledgling professional career to date De Bruyne going close to the spectacular merely served to underline how peripheral he d been certainly in comparison to his effervescent compatriot Trossard who should have had an assist to his name when Nketiah erred It fell to Ake to show the sort of composure that deserted the forwards on display including Erling Haaland who endured a frustrating evening Grealish expertly kept the ball alive after Alvarez struck the upright drawing Tomiyasu and Saka towards him and opening up the pass for Ake to finish with unexpected nonchalance Arsenal pressed hard to force the replay that neither manager could really have wanted with substitute Gabriel Martinelli a livewire presence who forced Ortega to stay sharp until the last Despite finishing up on the wrong end of the scoreline Arsenal showed City they will not be going anywhere in this season s title race A much changed team had the better of the first half against what was more or less Guardiola s first choice outfield XI at this moment in time The Gunners character was again on display in the way they responded to Ake s goal A narrow defeat with pride intact and the capacity to focus all energies on the Premier League charge sorry Europa League feels like a pretty good outcome for Mikel Arteta Manchester City s ample depth at centre back will again be tested after John Stones pulled up with a hamstring injury at the end of the first half Aymeric Laporte came on for the England man and Ruben Dias remained an unused substitute an unimaginable state of affairs over recent years A large part of the reason for this change in the hierarchy is Ake s form and versatility Guardiola has praised the Dutchman as his best player this season when it comes to defending the 18 yard box Ake more than lived up to that billing as he came out on top against the brilliant Saka His goal was a surprising and deserved cherry on the cake City struggled during the first half with their normally slick passing game disjointed It s not the first time that has been the case since the World Cup The answer may lie with a man who lifted that trophy last month While some of Guardiola s players rely on collective rhythm to help them show their best form Alvarez simply burrows into games harasses opponents and jackhammers around until he gets what he wants The Argentina star caused the goal and gave the attackers around him fresh impetus during the decisive phase of the game Fulltime City get over the line That was hard work for Pep Guardiola s men who showed the necessary improvement after a pretty listless first half We ll all try to extrapolate things we ve learned tonight in the context of the title race Arsenal for

    Man City vs Arsenal score, result, highlights as Nathan Ake gives Pep Guardiola’s men FA Cup win

    ETIHAD STADIUM, MANCHESTER — Nathan Ake was Manchester City’s unlikely hero as he snatched a 1-0 win for Pep Guardiola’s side against Premier League leaders Arsenal in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

    Mikel Arteta's Gunners, who are five points clear of champions City at the Premier League summit with a game in hand, made six changes to the side that beat Manchester United 3-2 last weekend, but Takehiro Tomiyasu and full-debutant Leandro Trossard each drew fine saves from City 'keeper Stefan Ortega in the home goal before halftime.

    Kevin De Bruyne curled a sumptuous 25-yard strike just wide, but the clearest chance of the opening 45 minutes fell Arsenal's way when Eddie Nketiah volleyed wide from Trossard's cross at the near post.

    City made the visitors pay for that wastefulness via an unlikely source, with left-sided defender Ake rolling home a right-footed finish from Jack Grealish's pass after substitute Julian Alvarez drilled a shot against the post.

    Goals: MCI — Nathan Ake (Jack Grealish) — 64th min.

    Trossard was the pick of the Arsenal attack as Ake went about his primary job of shackling the in-form Bukayo Saka impressively. In the sixth minute, the Belgium international cut a ball across the City box that Tomiyasu hammered goalwards to draw a superb save from Ortega.

    The Arsenal left winger then went it alone to again find City’s cup goalkeeper up to the challenge, handing 18-year-old Rico Lewis the toughest night of his fledgling professional career to date.

    De Bruyne going close to the spectacular merely served to underline how peripheral he’d been, certainly in comparison to his effervescent compatriot Trossard, who should have had an assist to his name when Nketiah erred.

    It fell to Ake to show the sort of composure that deserted the forwards on display, including Erling Haaland, who endured a frustrating evening. Grealish expertly kept the ball alive after Alvarez struck the upright, drawing Tomiyasu and Saka towards him and opening up the pass for Ake to finish with unexpected nonchalance.

    Arsenal pressed hard to force the replay that neither manager could really have wanted, with substitute Gabriel Martinelli a livewire presence who forced Ortega to stay sharp until the last.

    Despite finishing up on the wrong end of the scoreline, Arsenal showed City they will not be going anywhere in this season’s title race. A much-changed team had the better of the first half against what was, more or less, Guardiola’s first–choice outfield XI at this moment in time. The Gunners’ character was again on display in the way they responded to Ake’s goal. A narrow defeat, with pride intact and the capacity to focus all energies on the Premier League charge (sorry, Europa League) feels like a pretty good outcome for Mikel Arteta.

    Manchester City’s ample depth at centre-back will again be tested after John Stones pulled up with a hamstring injury at the end of the first half. Aymeric Laporte came on for the England man and Ruben Dias remained an unused substitute — an unimaginable state of affairs over recent years. A large part of the reason for this change in the hierarchy is Ake’s form and versatility. Guardiola has praised the Dutchman as his best player this season when it comes to defending the 18-yard box. Ake more than lived up to that billing as he came out on top against the brilliant Saka. His goal was a surprising and deserved cherry on the cake.

    City struggled during the first half, with their normally slick passing game disjointed. It’s not the first time that has been the case since the World Cup. The answer may lie with a man who lifted that trophy last month. While some of Guardiola’s players rely on collective rhythm to help them show their best form, Alvarez simply burrows into games, harasses opponents and jackhammers around until he gets what he wants. The Argentina star caused the goal and gave the attackers around him fresh impetus during the decisive phase of the game.

    Fulltime: City get over the line. That was hard work for Pep Guardiola's men, who showed the necessary improvement after a pretty listless first half. We'll all try to extrapolate things we've learned tonight in the context of the title race. Arsenal, for their part, were dominant during the first half and pushed City back after going behind. They played with a palpable swagger despite Mikel Arteta making six changes to his starting lineup. City were not at their best, but refused to go away and showed an iron will to win, which might be viewed ominously in north London.

    90th minute+2: Stefan Ortega launches a pass out to the right to Kyle Walker — that's been a bit of a game-changing ploy from Guardiola, in all honesty. The England man darts inside and draws a foul from his old mate Oleksandr Zinchenko, who is booked.

    90th minute: Four minutes of stoppage time coming up. If only Arsenal had recent experience of stunning a Manchester team in stoppage time...

    89th minute: Manuel Akanji comes charging out to challenge Granit Xhaka successfully. The centre-back urges his colleagues to press out with him. Brave defending.

    87th minute: Granit Xhaka slips through a pass for Gabriel Martinelli. Stefan Ortega is out to snaffle it, but City haven't really worked out what to do with the Brazil winger so far.

    85th minute: The next corner is cleared, but City are starting to feel a bit like they're hanging on.

    84th minute: Corner to Arsenal. There's a delay, and Kyle Walker and Granit Xhaka exchange a few observations. The corner is headed clear at the near post, but Arsenal are on the second ball. Substitute Gabriel Martinelli darts towards goal, but the angle is tight and Ortega is able to push behind.

    82nd minute: Julian Alvarez lines up another shot from outside the box, but this one is straightforward enough for Matt Turner.

    78th minute: Jack Grealish loops the delivery just over Aymeric Laporte and Rodri. Julian Alvarez retrieves the loose ball — of course he does — and whips a devilish ball in that Matt Turner is equal to with a fine punch.

    77th minute: Granit Xhaka does one of those daft Granit Xhaka fouls we've not really seen this season. Bernardo Silva goes sprawling and City have a free-kick in a good position on the right.

    76th minute: Not sure how Fabio Vieira's Brummie is, but Jack Grealish just offered him one or two choice observations.

    72nd minute: It's been a strong response from Arsenal, who have remained on the front foot since Ake's goal. Mikel Arteta won't like being behind but, in the bigger picture, it's another big tick for his title aspirants. Bernardo Silva and Martin Odegaard are coming on for their respective sides. Bukayo Saka takes a rest for Arsenal and Kevin De Bruyne's night is also done.

    66th minute: Almost the equaliser!!!!! Aymeric Laporte gets a vital touch that goes neither towards his own goal or allows Eddie Nketiah a tap-in. Stefan Ortega pouches the resulting corner to roars from the home support. Oleksandr Zinchenko has replaced Kieran Tierney at left-back for the Gunners.

    64th minute: GOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLL!!!!! Nathan Ake!!!!!

    An unlikely hero has the breakthrough for Manchester City!

    Julian Alvarez, who has really changed the whole feel of the City attack since coming on, let rip with a low drive from long range that cannoned back off the post. Jack Grealish kept the ball alive, drew a couple of defenders and passed to Ake, who nonchalantly guided the ball home with his weaker right foot.

    62nd minute: Searching ball for Bukayo Saka in behind Nathan Ake, but the Dutchman deals with it well.

    58th minute: Here come Julian Alvarez and Kyle Walker. Riyad Mahrez and Rico Lewis are the men to make way.

    56th minute: Now a collision between Erling Haaland and Matt Turner. Think of Haaland in this situation as the world's biggest, clumsiest toddler. Turner is fine with it, all laughs and giggles between the two. Julian Alvarez is also about to come on for City.

    55th minute: Matt Turner stays on and City decide to see how healthy he really is. Kevin De Bruyne gets down the inside right channel and drives a ball into the six-yard box. Turner gets down to deal with it well.

    54th minute: Matt Turner is sitting on the turf having his shoulder looked at. This could be the end of Aaroin Ramsdale's night off. Meanwhile. it looks like Pep Guardiola is bringing Kyle Walker on. Walker is now on the receiving end of lots of instructions and pointing. Like Homer just before Mr. Burns sends him out to bat.

    52nd minute: Better from City. Just after Matt Turner unconvincingly punches a De Bruyne special clear, Rico Lewis burst into the box but fires into the side netting at the near post.

    51st minute: Kevin De Bruyne gets some room to stretch his legs in midfield. He looks for Erling Haaland, but it's a predictable pass and Takehiro Tomiyasu and William Saliba close the door.

    49th minute: Booming it to Erling Haaland is still the order of the day from Pep Guardiola — what would Johan Cruyff say?!?! Takehiro Tomiyasu and Matt Turner tidy up on this occasion.

    46th minute: We're back underway. William Saliba is on for Arsenal, with Mikel Arteta clearly deciding Rob Holding on a yellow against Erling Haaland was too much of a risk.

    Halftime: Goalless at the break, with Jack Grealish offering referee Paul Tierney a home truth or two as they plod down the tunnel. Quietly, that's a huge half for Arsenal in the context of what they're aiming for this season. With six changes, they've faced up to City's first-choice outfield line up and been the better team. City back-up goalkeeper Stefan Ortega is the only reason they're not winning.

    45th minute+4: Here's Aymeric Laporte. His supreme range of passing from the back might help City here, because they've been unusually ropey in that department.

    45th minute+2: That's the end of John Stones' night. Aymeric Laporte will come on after he's removed his snood and several other layers of clothing. It's that sort of night in Manchester. City continue with 10 men for now.

    45th minute: Two minutes of additional time have been signalled, but there'll be more. John Stones is down after grabbing at his hamstring. It doesn't look great for the England defender.

    44th minute: Rodri uncharacteristically shells possession in his own half, underlining City's total lack of fluency here. Manuel Akanji thunders into a couple of vital challenges, first on Eddie Nketiah, then on Fabio Vieira. City look to break but the long ball to Riyad Mahrez, somewhat inevitably, skips out for a throw-in.

    42nd minute: Wrestlemania MCR between Erling Haaland and Rob Holding continues. The Arsenal man is booked.

    40th minute: A hairy moment for Stefan Ortega, who has to crunch into Eddie Nketiah on the right-hand side of his box, but it's a fair challenge. City go up the other end, but Jack Grealish's cross is way over Erling Haaland and, therefore, everyone.

    39th minute: Another very un-Guardiola half chance. Haaland dashes after a bouncing ball over the top, barges into Gabriel and the resulting prod is way off target.

    35th minute: Haaland takes a heavy touch then puts a simple pass out for a throw. The Arsenal fans respond in the pantomime style.

    34th minute: Another chance for Arsenal, who have been the better team. Leandro Trossard down the left and his cross is lovely. Eddie Nketiah can't sort out his body position and skews a volley wide at the near post.

    31st minute: Erling Haaland's back on his feet after a bit of treatment. Pep Guardiola and Mikel Arteta used the stoppage as an opportunity to gather their teams in huddles. John Stones is still getting an earful from Guardiola before the action resumes with a drop ball.

    29th minute: Erling Haaland goes down clutching his head after a challenge with Rob Holding. Referee Paul Tierney waves "play on" and the City fans are furious. Tierney then decides, actually, that's a head injury, so halts Arsenal's break. The Gunners' fans are furious. Well done, ref!

    25th minute: Oohhhh, Kevin De Bruyne! The Belgian maestro, who has barely been involved, chops in onto his left foot and curls a glorious strike just wide. I was sitting right down the barrel of that shot and was fairly convinced it was going in.

    22nd minute: Stefan Ortega again! Bukayo Saka launches an Arsenal break and his pass intended for Eddie Nketiah is seized upon by Fabio Vieira. He passes to Leandro Trossard down the left and the winger's shot across goal is brilliantly kept out by the City keeper.

    18th minute: Takehiro Tomiyasu scampers after Jack Grealish and fouls him. The City winger isn't best pleased. The game has lost much of its early flow and gotten a little scrappy.

    16th minute: For the second time this evening, City's teenage right-back Rico Lewis gets penalised for a foul throw.

    15th minute: An Arsenal free-kick is lofted into the box. The ball drops to Bukayo Saka, but his shot is blocked at close quarters.

    13th minute: Arsenal let Ilkay Gundogan dribble unchallenged for about 40 yards. Which is nice of them, I suppose. He passes to Jack Grealish, whose left-wing cross is easily snaffled by Matt Turner.

    11th minute: It's maybe instructive that City's best moments have come from looking for Haaland early. Despite their six changes, in terms of overall football, Arsenal have been the smoother operators so far.

    9th minute: Erling Haaland vs Rob Holding might end up being the whole ball game here. The Arsenal man loses his footing and Haaland looks to be in. Matt Turner comes out of his area to make an expert slide challenge and from the bouncing ball, Haaland tries an overhead kick that Takehiro Tomiyasu is able to mop up. Remember that Zlatan Ibrahimovic overhead kick against England? Sort of that idea.

    5th minute: Excellent save from Stefan Ortega!!! Leandro Trossard gets his first chance to stretch his legs down the Arsenal left, he cuts inside and his cross bounces to Takehiro Tomiyasu. The right-back absolutely welts his shot and the City keeper showed razor-sharp reflexes to push clear.

    3rd minute: Arsenal popping the ball around confidently at the back but they overcook it and Jack Grealish intercepts. Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland combine before Rodri blasts harmlessly over from 25 yards.

    2nd minute: Interesting. Arsenal set up for a short City goalkick and Stefan Ortega goes long. Erling Haaland and Rob Holding get into an unseemly grapple. The referee gives the free-kick Arsenal's way but expect to see City try that one again.

    1st minute: We're off. Arsenal pump one forward from kickoff and Rodri, who had a rather influential final say the last time these teams met, heads clear.

    4 mins from kickoff: The (normal) lights are back on and here come the teams. Erling Haaland looking all business. There are nearly 8,000 travelling Arsenal fans away to might right and they're playing a full part in a cracking pre-match atmosphere. Let's go!

    The smoke machines are pumping at the Etihad Stadium now in preparation for what has become City's customary pre-match lights show at an evening match. Sometime about that Simpsons GIF and Principal Skinner saying "no, it's the children who are wrong".

    20 mins from kickoff: Much has been made before kickoff over how significant or otherwise the outcome of this match might be for the title race. Mikel Arteta's much-changed XI suggests he thinks something along the lines of "not very significant". But, it's still an Arsenal side with plenty of talent and imagine the psychological boost the entire squad would get from turning over a City team of this calibre. By the same token, a defeat in these circumstances should be easy to shrug off before returning focus to the league, so long as Erling Haaland doesn't go absolutely ballistic.

    40 mins from kickoff: Over recent weeks, Pep Guardiola has been calling on his City players to match Arsenal in terms of hunger and desire. A glance over the two teams shows Guardiola throwing down this challenge to his players once again. Don't be fooled by the likes of Kyle Walker, Joao Cancelo, Aymeric Laporte and Bernardo Silva lurking on the bench, this is more or less Guardiola's first choice XI at this moment in time, with the obvious exception of Stefan Ortega returning for cup action.

    58 mins from kickoff: And this is the Arsenal XI. Mikel Arteta makes six changes from last Sunday's dramatic 3-2 win over Manchester United, including handing a full debut to new signing Leandro Trossard.

    1 hr from kickoff: The teams are in. Erling Haaland is among the City starters.

    1 hr 20 mins from kickoff: Arsenal and City have seven and eight days out of action after this game, at which point they will resume a battle for the Premier League title that has the Gunners in charge to the tune of five points and a game in hand. As such, there's no reason for either Pep Guardiola or Mikel Arteta to make too many changes, other than those perhaps aimed at trying to outfox an opponent each arguably knows better than any other. Guardiola certainly has previous for the odd maverick move in that regard. The all-important teamsheets are just 20 minutes away.

    1 hr 40 mins from kickoff: It's been over a year since City and Arsenal faced one another. On New Year's Day at Emirates Stadium, Mikel Arteta's side put in a sparkling display and led through a Bukayo Saka goal at the break. The hosts then lost their discipline and Gabriel was sent off (following a clash with future teammate Gabriel Jesus, no less) after Riyad Mahrez equalised from the penalty spot. City, in truth, still weren't great with the man advantage but Rodri burgled a stoppage-time winner. He celebrated in front of the Arsenal fans, an angry punter threw a toilet roll at him, City went on to win the league and Arsenal failed to make the top four. It's safe to say a lot has changed since then.

    2 hours from kickoff: Hello and welcome to The Sporting News' live coverage of a mouthwatering FA Cup fourth-round clash between Manchester City and Arsenal.

    Pep Guardiola only made two alterations to the side that brushed aside Wolves 3-0, retaining weekend hat-trick hero Erling Haaland. Ederson makes way for regular cup goalkeeper Stefan Ortega, while Nathan Ake comes in for Aymeric Laporte on the left-hand side of defence.

    Man City starting XI (4-3-3): Ortega (GK) — Lewis, Stones, Akanji, Ake — De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan — Mahrez, Haaland, Grealish.

    Mikel Arteta handed a full debut to Leandro Trossard as he shuffled his back with six changes to the team that beat Manchester United 3-2 last Sunday. Matt Turner, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Kieran Tierney, Rob Holding and Fabio Vieira were the other men to come in.

    Arsenal starting XI (4-3-3): Turner (GK) — Tomiyasu, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney — Vieira, Partey, Xhaka — Saka, Nketiah, Trossard.

    Arsenal starting XI (4-3-3): Ramsdale (GK), White, Odegaard, Martinelli, Saliba, Kiwior, Lokonga, Marquinhos, Zinchenko.

  •  ETIHAD STADIUM MANCHESTER Nathan Ake was Manchester City s unlikely hero as he snatched a 1 0 win for Pep Guardiola s side against Premier League leaders Arsenal in the fourth round of the FA Cup Mikel Arteta s side who are five points clear of champions City at the summit with a game in hand made six changes to the side that beat Manchester United 3 2 last weekend but Takehiro Tomiyasu and full debutant Leandro Trossard each drew fine saves from Stefan Ortega in the home goal before halftime Kevin De Bruyne curled a sumptuous 25 yard strike just wide but the clearest chance of the opening 45 minutes fell Arsenal s way when Eddie Nketiah volleyed wide from Trossard s cross at the near post City made them pay for that wastefulness via an unlikely source with left sided defender Ake rolling home a right footed finish from Jack Grealish s pass after substitute Julian Alvarez drilled against the post Fulltime City get over the line That was hard work for Pep Guardiola s men who showed the necessary improvement after a pretty listless first half We ll all try to extrapolate things we ve learned tonight in the context of the title race Arsenal for their part were dominant during the first half and pushed City back after going behind They played with a palpable swagger despite Mikel Arteta making six changes to his starting lineup City were not at their best but refused

Haaland but it s a predictable pass and Takehiro Tomiyasu and William Saliba close the door 49th minute Booming it to Erling Haaland is still the order of the day from Pep Guardiola what would Johan Cruyff say Takehiro Tomiyasu and Matt Turner tidy up on this occasion 46th minute We re back underway William Saliba is on for Arsenal with Mikel Arteta clearly deciding Rob Holding on a yellow against Erling Haaland was too much of a risk Halftime Goalless at the break with Jack Grealish offering referee Paul Tierney a home truth or two as they plod down the tunnel Quietly that s a huge half for Arsenal in the context of what they re aiming for this season With six changes they ve faced up to City s first choice outfield line up and been the better team Back up goalkeeper Stefan Ortega is the only reason they re not winning 45th minute 4 Here s Aymeric Laporte His supreme range of passing from the back might help City here because they ve been unusually ropey in that department 45th minute 2 That s the end of John Stones night Aymeric Laporte will come on after he s removed his snood and several other layers of clothing It s that sort of night in Manchester City continue with 10 men for now 45th minute Two minutes of additional time have been signalled but there ll be more John Stones is down after grabbing at his hamstring It doesn t look great for the England defender 44th minute Rodri uncharacteristically shells possession in his own half underlining City s total lack of fluency here Manuel Akanji thunders into a couple of vital challenges first on Eddie Nketiah then on Fabio Vieira City look to break but the long ball to Riyad Mahrez somewhat inevitably skips out for a throw in 42nd minute Wrestlemania MCR between Erling Haaland and Rob Holding continues The Arsenal man is booked 40th minute A hairy moment for Stefan Ortega who has to crunch into Eddie Nketiah on the right hand side of his box but it s a fair challenge City go up the other end but Jack Grealish s cross is way over Erling Haaland and therefore everyone 39th minute Another very un Guardiola half chance Haaland dashes after a bouncing ball over the top barges into Gabriel and the resulting prod is way off target 35th minute Haaland takes a heavy touch then puts a simple pass out for a throw The Arsenal fans respond in the pantomime style 34th minute Another chance for Arsenal who have been the better team Leandro Trossard down the left and his cross is lovely Eddie Nketiah can t sort out his body position and skews a volley wide at the near post 31st minute Erling Haaland s back on his feet after a bit of treatment Pep Guardiola and Mikel Arteta used the stoppage as an opportunity to gather their teams in huddles John Stones is still getting an earful from Guardiola before the action resumes with a drop ball 29th minute Erling Haaland goes down clutching his head after a challenge with Rob Holding Referee Paul Tierney waves play on and the City fans are furious Tierney then decides actually that s a head injury so halts Arsenal s break The Gunners fans are furious Well done ref 25th minute Oohhhh Kevin De Bruyne The Belgian maestro who has barely been involved chops in onto his left foot and curls a glorious strike just wide I was sitting right down the barrel of that shot and was fairly convinced it was going in 22nd minute Stefan Ortega again Bukayo Saka lauches an Arsenal break and his pass intended for Eddie Nketiah is seized upon by Fabio Vieira He passes to Leandro Trossard down the left and the winger s shot across goal is brilliantly kept out by the City keeper 18th minute Takehiro Tomiyasu scampers after Jack Grealish and fouls him The City winger isn t best pleased The game has lost much of its early flow and

set up for a short City goalkick and Stefan Ortega goes long Erling Haaland and Rob Holding get into an unseemly grapple The referee gives the free kick Arsenal s way but expect to see City try that one again 1st minute We re off Arsenal pump one forward from kickoff and Rodri who had a rather influential final say the last time these teams met heads clear 4 mins from kickoff The normal lights are back on and here come the teams Erling Haaland looking all business There are nearly 8 000 travelling Arsenal fans away to might right and they re playing a full part in a cracking pre match atmosphere Let s go The smoke machines are pumping at the Etihad Stadium now in preparation for what has become City s customary pre match lights show at an evening match Sometime about that Simpsons

    Man City vs. Arsenal final score, result, highlights and analysis as Ake gives Guardiola’s men FA Cup win
     ETIHAD STADIUM MANCHESTER Nathan Ake was Manchester City s unlikely hero as he snatched a 1 0 win for Pep Guardiola s side against Premier League leaders Arsenal in the fourth round of the FA Cup Mikel Arteta s side who are five points clear of champions City at the summit with a game in hand made six changes to the side that beat Manchester United 3 2 last weekend but Takehiro Tomiyasu and full debutant Leandro Trossard each drew fine saves from Stefan Ortega in the home goal before halftime Kevin De Bruyne curled a sumptuous 25 yard strike just wide but the clearest chance of the opening 45 minutes fell Arsenal s way when Eddie Nketiah volleyed wide from Trossard s cross at the near post City made them pay for that wastefulness via an unlikely source with left sided defender Ake rolling home a right footed finish from Jack Grealish s pass after substitute Julian Alvarez drilled against the post Fulltime City get over the line That was hard work for Pep Guardiola s men who showed the necessary improvement after a pretty listless first half We ll all try to extrapolate things we ve learned tonight in the context of the title race Arsenal for their part were dominant during the first half and pushed City back after going behind They played with a palpable swagger despite Mikel Arteta making six changes to his starting lineup City were not at their best but refused to go away and showed an iron will to win which might be viewed ominously in north London 90th minute 2 Stefan Ortega launches a pass out to the right to Kyle Walker that s been a bit of a game changing ploy from Guardiola in all honest The England man darts inside and draws a foul from his old mate Oleksandr Zinchenko who is booked 90th minute Four minutes of stoppage time coming up If only Arsenal had recent experience of stunning a Manchester team in stoppage time 89th minute Manuel Akanji comes charging out to challenge Granit Xhaka successfully The centre back urges his colleagues to press out with him Brave defending 87th minute Granit Xhaka slips through a pass for Gabriel Martinelli Stefan Ortega is out to snaffle it but City haven t really worked out what to do with the Brazil winger so far 85th minute The next corner is cleared but City are starting to feel a bit like they re hanging on 84th minute Corner to Arsenal There s a delay and Kyle Walker and Granit Xhaka exchange a few observations The corner is headed clear at the near post but Arsenal are on the second ball Substitute Gabriel Martinelli darts towards goal but the angle is tight and Ortega is able to push behind 82nd minute Julian Alvarez lines up another shot from outside the box but this one is straightforward enough for Matt Turner 78th minute Jack Grealish loops the delivery just over Aymeric Laporte and Rodri Julian Alvarez retrieves the loose ball of course he does and whips a devilish ball in that Matt Turner is equal to with a fine punch 77th minute Granit Xhaka does one of those daft Granit Xhaka fouls we ve not really seen this season Bernardo Silva goes sprawling and City have a free kick in a good position on the right 76th minute Not sure how Fabio Vieira s Brummie is but Jack Grealish just offered him one or two choice observations 72nd minute It s been a strong response from Arsenal who have remained on the front foot since Ake s goal Mikel Arteta won t like being behind but in the bigger picture it s another big tick for his title aspirants Bernardo Silva and Martin Odegaard are coming on for their respective sides Bukayo Saka takes a rest for Arsenal and Kevin De Bruyne s night is also done 66th minute Almost the equaliser Aymeric Laporte gets a vital touch that goes neither towards his own goal or allows Eddie Nketiah a tap in Stefan Ortega pouches the resulting corner to roars from the home support Oleksandr Zinchenko has replaced Kieran Tierney for the Gunners 64th minute GOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLL Nathan Ake An unlikely hero has the breakthrough for Manchester City Julian Alvarez who has really changed the whole feel of the City attack since coming on let rip with a low drive from long range that cannoned back off the post Jack Grealish kept the ball alive drew a couple of defenders and passed to Ake who nonchalantly guided the ball home with his weaker right foot 62nd minute Searching ball for Bukayo Saka in behind Nathan Ake but the Dutchman deals with it well 58th minute Here come Julian Alvarez and Kyle Walker Riyad Mahrez and Rico Lewis are the men to make way 56th minute Now a collision between Erling Haaland and Matt Turner Think of Haaland in this situation as the world s biggest clumsiest toddler Turner is fine with it all laughs and giggles between the two Julian Alvarez is also about to come on for City 55th minute Matt Turner stays on and City decide to see how healthy he really is Kevin De Bruyne gets down the inside right channel and drives a ball into the six yard box Turner gets down to deal with it well 54th minute Matt Turner is sitting on the turf having his shoulder looked at This could be the end of Aaroin Ramsdale s night off Meanwhile it looks like Pep Guardiola is bringing Kyle Walker on Walker is now on the receiving end of lots of instructions and pointing Like Homer just before Mr Burns sends him out to bat 52nd minute Better from City Just after Matt Turner unconvincingly punches a De Bruyne special clear Rico Lewis burst into the box but fires into the side netting at the near post 51st minute Kevin De Bruyne gets some room to stretch his legs in midfield He looks for Erling Haaland but it s a predictable pass and Takehiro Tomiyasu and William Saliba close the door 49th minute Booming it to Erling Haaland is still the order of the day from Pep Guardiola what would Johan Cruyff say Takehiro Tomiyasu and Matt Turner tidy up on this occasion 46th minute We re back underway William Saliba is on for Arsenal with Mikel Arteta clearly deciding Rob Holding on a yellow against Erling Haaland was too much of a risk Halftime Goalless at the break with Jack Grealish offering referee Paul Tierney a home truth or two as they plod down the tunnel Quietly that s a huge half for Arsenal in the context of what they re aiming for this season With six changes they ve faced up to City s first choice outfield line up and been the better team Back up goalkeeper Stefan Ortega is the only reason they re not winning 45th minute 4 Here s Aymeric Laporte His supreme range of passing from the back might help City here because they ve been unusually ropey in that department 45th minute 2 That s the end of John Stones night Aymeric Laporte will come on after he s removed his snood and several other layers of clothing It s that sort of night in Manchester City continue with 10 men for now 45th minute Two minutes of additional time have been signalled but there ll be more John Stones is down after grabbing at his hamstring It doesn t look great for the England defender 44th minute Rodri uncharacteristically shells possession in his own half underlining City s total lack of fluency here Manuel Akanji thunders into a couple of vital challenges first on Eddie Nketiah then on Fabio Vieira City look to break but the long ball to Riyad Mahrez somewhat inevitably skips out for a throw in 42nd minute Wrestlemania MCR between Erling Haaland and Rob Holding continues The Arsenal man is booked 40th minute A hairy moment for Stefan Ortega who has to crunch into Eddie Nketiah on the right hand side of his box but it s a fair challenge City go up the other end but Jack Grealish s cross is way over Erling Haaland and therefore everyone 39th minute Another very un Guardiola half chance Haaland dashes after a bouncing ball over the top barges into Gabriel and the resulting prod is way off target 35th minute Haaland takes a heavy touch then puts a simple pass out for a throw The Arsenal fans respond in the pantomime style 34th minute Another chance for Arsenal who have been the better team Leandro Trossard down the left and his cross is lovely Eddie Nketiah can t sort out his body position and skews a volley wide at the near post 31st minute Erling Haaland s back on his feet after a bit of treatment Pep Guardiola and Mikel Arteta used the stoppage as an opportunity to gather their teams in huddles John Stones is still getting an earful from Guardiola before the action resumes with a drop ball 29th minute Erling Haaland goes down clutching his head after a challenge with Rob Holding Referee Paul Tierney waves play on and the City fans are furious Tierney then decides actually that s a head injury so halts Arsenal s break The Gunners fans are furious Well done ref 25th minute Oohhhh Kevin De Bruyne The Belgian maestro who has barely been involved chops in onto his left foot and curls a glorious strike just wide I was sitting right down the barrel of that shot and was fairly convinced it was going in 22nd minute Stefan Ortega again Bukayo Saka lauches an Arsenal break and his pass intended for Eddie Nketiah is seized upon by Fabio Vieira He passes to Leandro Trossard down the left and the winger s shot across goal is brilliantly kept out by the City keeper 18th minute Takehiro Tomiyasu scampers after Jack Grealish and fouls him The City winger isn t best pleased The game has lost much of its early flow and gotten a little scrappy 16th minute For the second time this evening City s teenage right back Rico Lewis gets penalised for a foul throw 15th minute An Arsenal free kick is lofted into the box The ball drops to Bukayo Saka but his shot is blocked at close quarters 13th minute Arsenal let Ilkay Gundogan dribble unchallenged for about 40 yards Which is nice of them I suppose He passes to Jack Grealish whose left wing cross is easily snaffled by Matt Turner 11th minute It s maybe instructive that City s best moments have come from looking for Haaland early Despite their six changes in terms of overall football Arsenal have been the smoother operators so far 9th minute Erling Haaland vs Rob Holding might end up being the whole ball game here The Arsenal man loses his footing and Haaland looks to be in Matt Turner comes out of his area to make an expert slide challenge and from the bouncing ball Haaland tries an overhead kick that Takehiro Tomiyasu is able to mop up Remember that Zlatan Ibrahimovic overhead kick against England Sort of that idea 5th minute Excellent save from Stefan Ortega Leandro Trossard gets his first chance to stretch his legs down the Arsenal left he cuts inside and his cross bounces to Takehiro Tomiyasu The right back absolutely welts his shot and the City keeper showed razor sharp reflexes to push clear 3rd minute Arsenal popping the ball around confidently at the back but they overcook it and Jack Grealish intercepts Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland combine before Rodri blasts harmlessly over from 25 yards 2nd minute Interesting Arsenal set up for a short City goalkick and Stefan Ortega goes long Erling Haaland and Rob Holding get into an unseemly grapple The referee gives the free kick Arsenal s way but expect to see City try that one again 1st minute We re off Arsenal pump one forward from kickoff and Rodri who had a rather influential final say the last time these teams met heads clear 4 mins from kickoff The normal lights

    Man City vs. Arsenal final score, result, highlights and analysis as Ake gives Guardiola’s men FA Cup win

    ETIHAD STADIUM, MANCHESTER — Nathan Ake was Manchester City’s unlikely hero as he snatched a 1-0 win for Pep Guardiola’s side against Premier League leaders Arsenal in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

    Mikel Arteta's side, who are five points clear of champions City at the summit with a game in hand, made six changes to the side that beat Manchester United 3-2 last weekend but Takehiro Tomiyasu and full-debutant Leandro Trossard each drew fine saves from Stefan Ortega in the home goal before halftime.

    Kevin De Bruyne curled a sumptuous 25-yard strike just wide but the clearest chance of the opening 45 minutes fell Arsenal's way when Eddie Nketiah volleyed wide from Trossard's cross at the near post.

    City made them pay for that wastefulness via an unlikely source, with left-sided defender Ake rolling home a right-footed finish from Jack Grealish's pass after substitute Julian Alvarez drilled against the post.

    Fulltime: City get over the line. That was hard work for Pep Guardiola's men, who showed the necessary improvement after a pretty listless first half. We'll all try to extrapolate things we've learned tonight in the context of the title race. Arsenal, for their part, were dominant during the first half and pushed City back after going behind. They played with a palpable swagger despite Mikel Arteta making six changes to his starting lineup. City were not at their best but refused to go away and showed an iron will to win, which might be viewed ominously in north London.

    90th minute+2: Stefan Ortega launches a pass out to the right to Kyle Walker - that's been a bit of a game-changing ploy from Guardiola, in all honest. The England man darts inside and draws a foul from his old mate Oleksandr Zinchenko, who is booked.

    90th minute: Four minutes of stoppage time coming up. If only Arsenal had recent experience of stunning a Manchester team in stoppage time...

    89th minute: Manuel Akanji comes charging out to challenge Granit Xhaka successfully. The centre-back urges his colleagues to press out with him. Brave defending.

    87th minute: Granit Xhaka slips through a pass for Gabriel Martinelli. Stefan Ortega is out to snaffle it but City haven't really worked out what to do with the Brazil winger so far.

    85th minute: The next corner is cleared but City are starting to feel a bit like they're hanging on.

    84th minute: Corner to Arsenal. There's a delay and Kyle Walker and Granit Xhaka exchange a few observations. The corner is headed clear at the near post but Arsenal are on the second ball. Substitute Gabriel Martinelli darts towards goal but the angle is tight and Ortega is able to push behind.

    82nd minute: Julian Alvarez lines up another shot from outside the box but this one is straightforward enough for Matt Turner.

    78th minute: Jack Grealish loops the delivery just over Aymeric Laporte and Rodri. Julian Alvarez retrieves the loose ball - of course he does - and whips a devilish ball in that Matt Turner is equal to with a fine punch.

    77th minute: Granit Xhaka does one of those daft Granit Xhaka fouls we've not really seen this season. Bernardo Silva goes sprawling and City have a free-kick in a good position on the right.

    76th minute: Not sure how Fabio Vieira's Brummie is, but Jack Grealish just offered him one or two choice observations.

    72nd minute: It's been a strong response from Arsenal, who have remained on the front foot since Ake's goal. Mikel Arteta won't like being behind but, in the bigger picture, it's another big tick for his title aspirants. Bernardo Silva and Martin Odegaard are coming on for their respective sides. Bukayo Saka takes a rest for Arsenal and Kevin De Bruyne's night is also done.

    66th minute: Almost the equaliser!!!!! Aymeric Laporte gets a vital touch that goes neither towards his own goal or allows Eddie Nketiah a tap in. Stefan Ortega pouches the resulting corner to roars from the home support. Oleksandr Zinchenko has replaced Kieran Tierney for the Gunners.

    64th minute: GOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLL!!!!! Nathan Ake!!!!!

    An unlikely hero has the breakthrough for Manchester City!

    Julian Alvarez, who has really changed the whole feel of the City attack since coming on, let rip with a low drive from long range that cannoned back off the post. Jack Grealish kept the ball alive, drew a couple of defenders and passed to Ake, who nonchalantly guided the ball home with his weaker right foot.

    62nd minute: Searching ball for Bukayo Saka in behind Nathan Ake but the Dutchman deals with it well.

    58th minute: Here come Julian Alvarez and Kyle Walker. Riyad Mahrez and Rico Lewis are the men to make way.

    56th minute: Now a collision between Erling Haaland and Matt Turner. Think of Haaland in this situation as the world's biggest, clumsiest toddler. Turner is fine with it, all laughs and giggles between the two. Julian Alvarez is also about to come on for City.

    55th minute: Matt Turner stays on and City decide to see how healthy he really is. Kevin De Bruyne gets down the inside right channel and drives a ball into the six-yard box. Turner gets down to deal with it well.

    54th minute: Matt Turner is sitting on the turf having his shoulder looked at. This could be the end of Aaroin Ramsdale's night off. Meanwhile. it looks like Pep Guardiola is bringing Kyle Walker on. Walker is now on the receiving end of lots of instructions and pointing. Like Homer just before Mr Burns sends him out to bat.

    52nd minute: Better from City. Just after Matt Turner unconvincingly punches a De Bruyne special clear, Rico Lewis burst into the box but fires into the side netting at the near post.

    51st minute: Kevin De Bruyne gets some room to stretch his legs in midfield. He looks for Erling Haaland but it's a predictable pass and Takehiro Tomiyasu and William Saliba close the door.

    49th minute: Booming it to Erling Haaland is still the order of the day from Pep Guardiola - what would Johan Cruyff say?!?! Takehiro Tomiyasu and Matt Turner tidy up on this occasion.

    46th minute: We're back underway. William Saliba is on for Arsenal, with Mikel Arteta clearly deciding Rob Holding on a yellow against Erling Haaland was too much of a risk.

    Halftime: Goalless at the break, with Jack Grealish offering referee Paul Tierney a home truth or two as they plod down the tunnel. Quietly, that's a huge half for Arsenal in the context of what they're aiming for this season. With six changes, they've faced up to City's first-choice outfield line up and been the better team. Back-up goalkeeper Stefan Ortega is the only reason they're not winning.

    45th minute+4: Here's Aymeric Laporte. His supreme range of passing from the back might help City here, because they've been unusually ropey in that department.

    45th minute+2: That's the end of John Stones' night. Aymeric Laporte will come on after he's removed his snood and several other layers of clothing. It's that sort of night in Manchester. City continue with 10 men for now.

    45th minute: Two minutes of additional time have been signalled but there'll be more. John Stones is down after grabbing at his hamstring. It doesn't look great for the England defender.

    44th minute: Rodri uncharacteristically shells possession in his own half, underlining City's total lack of fluency here. Manuel Akanji thunders into a couple of vital challenges, first on Eddie Nketiah, then on Fabio Vieira. City look to break but the long ball to Riyad Mahrez, somewhat inevitably, skips out for a throw-in.

    42nd minute: Wrestlemania MCR between Erling Haaland and Rob Holding continues. The Arsenal man is booked.

    40th minute: A hairy moment for Stefan Ortega, who has to crunch into Eddie Nketiah on the right-hand side of his box, but it's a fair challenge. City go up the other end but Jack Grealish's cross is way over Erling Haaland and, therefore, everyone.

    39th minute: Another very un-Guardiola half chance. Haaland dashes after a bouncing ball over the top, barges into Gabriel and the resulting prod is way off target.

    35th minute: Haaland takes a heavy touch then puts a simple pass out for a throw. The Arsenal fans respond in the pantomime style.

    34th minute: Another chance for Arsenal, who have been the better team. Leandro Trossard down the left and his cross is lovely. Eddie Nketiah can't sort out his body position and skews a volley wide at the near post.

    31st minute: Erling Haaland's back on his feet after a bit of treatment. Pep Guardiola and Mikel Arteta used the stoppage as an opportunity to gather their teams in huddles. John Stones is still getting an earful from Guardiola before the action resumes with a drop ball.

    29th minute: Erling Haaland goes down clutching his head after a challenge with Rob Holding. Referee Paul Tierney waves "play on" and the City fans are furious. Tierney then decides, actually, that's a head injury, so halts Arsenal's break. The Gunners' fans are furious. Well done, ref!

    25th minute: Oohhhh, Kevin De Bruyne! The Belgian maestro, who has barely been involved, chops in onto his left foot and curls a glorious strike just wide. I was sitting right down the barrel of that shot and was fairly convinced it was going in.

    22nd minute: Stefan Ortega again! Bukayo Saka lauches an Arsenal break and his pass intended for Eddie Nketiah is seized upon by Fabio Vieira. He passes to Leandro Trossard down the left and the winger's shot across goal is brilliantly kept out by the City keeper.

    18th minute: Takehiro Tomiyasu scampers after Jack Grealish and fouls him. The City winger isn't best pleased. The game has lost much of its early flow and gotten a little scrappy.

    16th minute: For the second time this evening, City's teenage right-back Rico Lewis gets penalised for a foul throw.

    15th minute: An Arsenal free-kick is lofted into the box. The ball drops to Bukayo Saka but his shot is blocked at close quarters.

    13th minute: Arsenal let Ilkay Gundogan dribble unchallenged for about 40 yards. Which is nice of them, I suppose. He passes to Jack Grealish, whose left-wing cross is easily snaffled by Matt Turner.

    11th minute: It's maybe instructive that City's best moments have come from looking for Haaland early. Despite their six changes, in terms of overall football, Arsenal have been the smoother operators so far.

    9th minute: Erling Haaland vs Rob Holding might end up being the whole ball game here. The Arsenal man loses his footing and Haaland looks to be in. Matt Turner comes out of his area to make an expert slide challenge and from the bouncing ball, Haaland tries an overhead kick that Takehiro Tomiyasu is able to mop up. Remember that Zlatan Ibrahimovic overhead kick against England? Sort of that idea.

    5th minute: Excellent save from Stefan Ortega!!! Leandro Trossard gets his first chance to stretch his legs down the Arsenal left, he cuts inside and his cross bounces to Takehiro Tomiyasu. The right-back absolutely welts his shot and the City keeper showed razor-sharp reflexes to push clear.

    3rd minute: Arsenal popping the ball around confidently at the back but they overcook it and Jack Grealish intercepts. Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland combine before Rodri blasts harmlessly over from 25 yards.

    2nd minute: Interesting. Arsenal set up for a short City goalkick and Stefan Ortega goes long. Erling Haaland and Rob Holding get into an unseemly grapple. The referee gives the free-kick Arsenal's way but expect to see City try that one again.

    1st minute: We're off. Arsenal pump one forward from kickoff and Rodri, who had a rather influential final say the last time these teams met, heads clear.

    4 mins from kickoff: The (normal) lights are back on and here come the teams. Erling Haaland looking all business. There are nearly 8,000 travelling Arsenal fans away to might right and they're playing a full part in a cracking pre-match atmosphere. Let's go!

    The smoke machines are pumping at the Etihad Stadium now in preparation for what has become City's customary pre-match lights show at an evening match. Sometime about that Simpsons GIF and Principal Skinner saying "no, it's the children who are wrong".

    20 mins from kickoff: Much has been made before kickoff over how significant or otherwise the outcome of this match might be for the title race. Mikel Arteta's much-changed XI suggests he thinks something along the lines of "not very significant". But, it's still an Arsenal side with plenty of talent and imagine the psychological boost the entire squad would get from turning over a City team of this calibre. By the same token, a defeat in these circumstances should be easy to shrug off before returning focus to the league, so long as Erling Haaland doesn't go absolutely ballistic.

    40 mins from kickoff: Over recent weeks, Pep Guardiola has been calling on his City players to match Arsenal in terms of hunger and desire. A glance over the two teams shows Guardiola throwing down this challenge to his players once again. Don't be fooled by the likes of Kyle Walker, Joao Cancelo, Aymeric Laporte and Bernardo Silva lurking on the bench, this is more or less Guardiola's first choice XI at this moment in time, with the obvious exception of Stefan Ortega returning for cup action.

    58 mins from kickoff: And this is the Arsenal XI. Mikel Arteta makes six changes from last Sunday's dramatic 3-2 win over Manchester United, including handing a full debut to new signing Leandro Trossard.

    1 hr from kickoff: The teams are in. Erling Haaland is among the City starters.

    1 hr 20 mins from kickoff: Arsenal and City have seven and eight days out of action after this game, at which point they will resume a battle for the Premier League title that has the Gunners in charge to the tune of five points and a game in hand. As such, there's no reason for either Pep Guardiola or Mikel Arteta to make too many changes, other than those perhaps aimed at trying to outfox an opponent each arguably knows better than any other. Guardiola certainly has previous for the odd maverick move in that regard. The all-important teamsheets are just 20 minutes away.

    1 hr 40 mins from kickoff: It's been over a year since City and Arsenal faced one another. On New Year's Day at Emirates Stadium, Mikel Arteta's side put in a sparkling display and led through a Bukayo Saka goal at the break. The hosts then lost their discipline and Gabriel was sent off (following a clash with future teammate Gabriel Jesus, no less) after Riyad Mahrez equalised from the penalty spot. City, in truth, still weren't great with the man advantage but Rodri burgled a stoppage-time winner. He celebrated in front of the Arsenal fans, an angry punter threw a toilet roll at him, City went on to win the league and Arsenal failed to make the top four. It's safe to say a lot has changed since then.

    Premier League title rivals Manchester City and Arsenal finally meet for the first time this year when the FA Cup hits the Etihad Stadium on Friday.

    The visiting Gunners have a five-point lead on City with a match-in-hand on the defending champions when it comes to Premier League play, and Arsenal’s done plenty good in the FA Cup.

    Arsenal last won the FA Cup in 2020, their tournament-best title total hitting 14. Man City won the previous season, and City has six FA Cup titles. Only six teams including the Gunners have more.

    The main storyline is easy: this is the first time we’ll see red-hot Arsenal test its mettle against the Premier League’s gold, er, silverware standard.

    Arsenal will have a chance to run at Man City’s back line with Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, Eddie Nketiah, and more, though there’s be even more juice in this match-up if Gabriel Jesus was healthy. Ex-City man Oleksandr Zinchenko may be ready for this reunion, too.

    City’s won four-straight match-ups with Arsenal, but the last Gunners win came in… the 2019-20 FA Cup, when Arsenal knocked off the holders. That’s a top, top recent memory for the club, a North London outfit who will hope its a harbinger of what’s to come later this season. Plus, there’s silverware in play here, too, you know?!?

    Will Pep Guardiola start Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne? Man City’s next game isn’t until Feb. 5 versus Tottenham, but Guardiola may not want to give Mikel Arteta’s men a taste of the duo with a huge Premier League encounter looming Feb. 15 at the Emirates Stadium.

    Man City is pretty healthy and should be able to deploy whoever Pep Guardiola wants to see against Arsenal, though we know the Catalan wizard is sometimes careful with what he does in cup competitions against Premier League rivals.

    Gabriel Jesus will not be available to compete against his former club, while Reiss Nelson and Mohamed Elneny are unlikely to play.

    The United States will host the 2024 Copa America, which will once again feature six guest nations as part of a new “strategic collaboration agreement” announced by CONMEBOL and CONCACAF on Friday.

    Copa America last came to the U.S., in the summer of 2016 for Copa America Centenario, the 100-year celebration of the South American championship.

    Back in 2016, the USMNT and Mexico were not required to qualify for the tournament, but the CONCACAF giants will not be given an automatic bid to Copa America 2024. They will also be forced to qualify as one of six CONCACAF through the 2023-24 Nations League. Previously, the other four bids from CONCACAF were awarded via various regional tournaments and and qualifying playoffs.

    The CONMEBOL-CONCACAF partnership also extends to the women’s game, where the Gold Cup is being revamped.

    For women’s national teams, CONCACAF has invited the top four CONMEBOL national teams to participate in the 2024 CONCACAF W Gold Cup. The inaugural edition of this 12-team tournament, which is a key part of CONCACAF’s new women’s national team ecosystem, will be played in the United States.

    The two Concacaf teams that will participate in the 2024 Summer Olympics (United States and Jamaica or Canada) will qualify directly for the 2024 Concacaf W Gold Cup. The remaining six Concacaf teams will be determined through the 2023 Road to Concacaf W Gold Cup.

    First things first, it means playing more high-level, competitive games between World Cups. The USMNT has faced the likes of Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and other South American nations in friendlies over the years, but as things stand their only competitive fixtures come against CONCACAF competition — the Gold Cup and World Cup qualifying.

    The timing of the tournament is beneficial for all national teams involved as well, at the halfway point to the 2026 World Cup — also set to be hosted in the United States (and Mexico and Canada) — just as EURO 2024 is the halfway marker for European nations. The 2023 Gold Cup is still on the schedule for this summer, with the final to be played at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.

    Only time will tell if the combined Copa America will become the new norm in the Americas, but given what we know about the profitability of international soccer, there will certainly be a “cross your fingers and hope all goes well” vibe in 2024.

    Sean Dyche is set to be appointed as the new manager at Everton, replacing Frank Lampard, as the Toffees prepare for a potential relegation battle for the second straight season.

    An official announcement is expected from the club on Friday. The former Burnley boss has been out of work since the Clarets fired Dyche after nearly 10 years last April. Burnley were, of course, relegated from the Premier League anyway.

    Marcelo Bielsa was reportedly the first manager contacted by Everton owner Farhad Moshiri, who’s looking to sell the club now as well, but the former Leeds boss declined the opportunity to wade into a relegation battle with a club currently unable to further invest in the first-team squad, whether that be this January or in the summer.

    After 20 of 38 games played this season, Everton (15 points) sit 19th in the Premier League table, ahead of last-place Southampton by five goals in the goal difference column. The good news: two points is all that separates them from safety in 17th place (Wolves). Furthermore, three points is all that stands in between Everton and 14th-place Leicester.

    At the time of Rafa Benitez’s appointment in the summer of 2021, you had to go back to nearly the turn of the millennium to find a manager who 1) managed Everton for more than 40 games (all competitions), and 2) had a win percentage below 40 percent. David Moyes (42.05), Roberto Martinez (42.86), Ronaldo Koeman (41.38), Marco Silva (40.00) and Carlo Ancelotti (46.27) all matched or eclipsed the mark between the spring of 2002 and Benitez’s arrival.

    Benitez’s tenure was generally viewed as an unmitigated disaster by Everton fans who were unhappy at the former Liverpool manager being hired in the first place. His win percentage (in just 22 games) was 31.82, a steep drop from his predecessors.

    Lampard went a few points better worse than Benitez, checking in at 27.91. Going all the way back to the founding of the Football League in 1888, only one manager has produced a lower win percentage than Lampard in at least 40 games managed. Howard Kendall, like Lampard, lasted less than a full year from 1997-98, with a 26.19 win percentage.

    The FA Cup always delivers shocks and plenty of Premier League clubs have tricky tasks facing them in the fourth round.

    After Aston Villa, Newcastle, Nottingham Forest and Bournemouth were all knocked out by lower league opponents in round three, plus Everton, Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Brentford knocked out by fellow Premier League sides, there are only 11 top-flight teams left in the last 32.

    The fourth-round draw’s already been conducted and Arsenal will tangle with Manchester City in a tantalizing tie, while Brighton against Liverpool has the makings of a classic and Manchester United will be on upset alert against Reading and so too will West Ham as they face a tough trip to third-tier Derby County.

    Read on for FA Cup stream info, fixtures, and predictions.

    Marcus Rashford forces an own goal from Conor Coady.

    The 2022-23 Premier League fixtures are front and center as the new season has delivered so much drama so far and normal service has resumed after the World Cup break.

    Remember: you can watch all 380 Premier League games across NBC, USA Network, NBCSports.com and Peacock. We’ve got you covered.

    Will Manchester City win yet another Premier League title? Can Chelsea and Liverpool push them all the way? How will Manchester United’s new-look side fare? What about Tottenham and Arsenal? How will the new boys get on? Who will be the surprise package?

    Those questions will be answered from August 2022 to May 2023, with the full list of Premier League fixtures.

    While below are the answers to all of the questions you have around the Premier League fixtures and everything else you need to know for the upcoming season, with full details on the Premier League TV schedule across the NBC family of channels and more.

    The Premier League fixtures for the 2022-23 season were announced on Thursday June 16, 2022 at 4am ET. Below is the full schedule, as you can watch all 380 games across our NBC platforms.

    The Premier League fixture computer decides who plays who and when, as teams located close to one another are usually playing at home on opposite weekends to help with policing, crowd control and transport congestion in those areas.

    The season will take a pause after Match round 16, which ends on November 13. After the World Cup is finished on Dec. 18, Premier League games will then restart on December 26. The 2022 World Cup was epic as Lionel Messi led Argentina to glory.

    The final day of the season will be on Sunday, May 28, 2023.
