Arsenal lost to Liverpool, Manchester City, and Chelsea. Besides, they are only counter cons United and Tottenham. But now the London Cannon is proving their capacity as a big team like Arteta hopes.

Opportunities Mesut Ozil and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang break from the starting XI is quite large. However, the tactician also warned, the FA Cup is a competition belonging to his club.
The Gunners have won 13 FA Cup trophies, a record in England. ‘I hope to have more fit players so I can rotate. But, of course, (FA Cup) is a competition inherent in this club in recent years,’ Arteta was quoted as saying on the Arsenal website.
