The Gunners will be approaching the game on the back of a disappointing fourth-round loss against old foes Manchester United at home and they will be looking to keep up the pressure on the fourth-placed Chelsea, as a win could see the North London side level on point with Blues on 47 points with the Blues only playing on Wednesday.
