Arsenal and Manchester City put their Premier League title race on hold to battle in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Friday.

The pregame narrative: The Gunners hold a five-point lead over City in the Premiership with a game in hand. This match won't have any bearing on the race but each team is expected to put its best foot forward. Arsenal's form has been spotless all season and we're backing them to turn up at Ethiad Stadium.

Arsenal vs. Manchester City picks

Best Bet: Arsenal or tie (+110)

Pep Guardiola said that Manchester City would have "no chance" of catching Arsenal in the title race if they keep their current form.

That makes sense, considering City have lost two of their past four fixtures while conceding six goals in those matchups.

Guardiola's side did bounce back with a 3-0 win over Wolverhampton in the Premier League on Sunday but that's a team staring down the relegation barrel while Arsenal top the table.

The Gunners' form has been immaculate lately and we don't expect them to slow now.

Mikel Arteta's side is unbeaten across all competitions since the international break (five wins and one draw). Arsenal's most recent victories were a 3-2 win over a surging Manchester United side at home and a 2-0 win away at Tottenham in the North London derby.

Those aren't easy fixtures but time and time again Arsenal have come through with a big result.

They've played in 28 games this season across all competitions and have only lost three times. We're happy to take the Gunners at plus money to win or draw even if the match is away versus a great team like City.

Key stat: Arsenal are 11-1-2 away from home this season across all competitions.

Quick picks

Under 2.5 goals (+123): If the match ends in a tie, a replay will take place at the Emirates Stadium at a later date. That's reason enough for Arsenal to lean on their strong defensive play throughout the match.

The Gunners have conceded the second-fewest goals in the Premier League this season (16) and have produced four clean sheets in their past five fixtures.

Man City is an offensive powerhouse, no doubt, but we don't expect them to be scoring at will on Friday.

We're also not expecting Arsenal to light up the scoreboard considering Manchester have allowed under one goal per game at home across all competitions this season (0.94).

Under 0.5 first half goals (+255): We're willing to assume some risk and bet the first half ends scoreless.

Arsenal and Manchester City have combined for just 13 first-half goals conceded in the Premier League this season in 39 total games.

This game should have a feeling-out process where both coaches try to find the best way to attack the opposition's defence.
