Man City XI vs Arsenal: Haaland in - Starting lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest for FA Cup today
Erling Haaland starts Manchester City’s FA Cup tie with Arsenal today.
Phil Foden was an unused substitute against Tottenham and then missed out completely on the City squad for the win over Wolves, with Guardiola revealing the 22-year-old picked up a foot knock in the Manchester derby two weeks ago.
However, at his press conference on Thursday, the City boss gave an update that suggested Foden could be in the squad against the Gunners at the Etihad.

“It is getting better,” Guardiola told reporters.
There were otherwise no injury concerns for City and, with more than a week until they face Tottenham in their next Premier League match, it is likely to be a strong lineup put out even if there are a few changes.
Stefan Ortega starts in goal, as he did in the third round against Chelsea, though Sergio Gomez does not get his usual cup start at left-back. Joao Cancelo has fallen down the pecking order in recent weeks and misses out due to Nathan Ake.
Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland both also start.
Starting Man City XI (4-3-3): Ortega; Lewis, Dias, Stones, Ake; Rodi, De Bruyne, Gundogan; Mahrez, Haaland, Grealish.
