Man City defeated Arsenal 1-0 in the 2022/2023 English Football Association (FA) Cup 4th Round (Round of 32) held at the home stadium Etihad Stadium on the 28th (Korean time).

As the two teams ranked first and second in the English Premier League this season, it was no different from a preview final. As Arsenal has been leading the league all the way and showing a different appearance, attention was focused on how competitive it will be against Man City.

Both teams brought out lineups close to the best. Man City put forward Elling Haalan, Jack Grealish, Kevin De Bruyne, and Riyad Mahrez, and Arsenal also started Eddy Nketia, Granit Xhaka, and Thomas Party with new recruit Leandro Trosar. 스포츠토토

The two teams had a good atmosphere, so they exchanged shots from the beginning and fought for momentum. When Man City opened fire with a mid-range shot by Rodri in the third minute of the first half, Arsenal counterattacked two minutes later with a surprise shot from Takehiro Tomiyasu. Manchester City overcame the early crisis with goalkeeper Stefan Ortega also blocking Trosar’s shot.

Both teams battled for supremacy throughout the first half and went scoreless in the second half. Arsenal first made a change by introducing William Saliba and Albert Sambi Loconga, and Manchester City also used Kyle Walker and Julian Alvarez as replacement cards in the 13th minute of the second half.

The first goal, which was rarely scored, was scored by Manchester City defender Nathan Ake’s shot in the 19th minute of the second half. Alvarez’s mid-range shot hit the post and Grealish caught it and connected it to Ake, who shook the net with a right-footed shot.

Arsenal counterattacked with Gabriel Martinelli, Martin Odegaard and Oleksandr Zinchenko to score a comeback goal, but were unable to break through Man City’s defence. In the end, Man City defeated Arsenal 1-0 and succeeded in advancing to the round of 16.
