By Harvey Byrne
Manager Arsene Wenger has decided to name an unchanged Arsenal team which takes on Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday.
The 67-year-old boss has decided to keep to the same starting eleven following last Monday’s 2-1 victory over Middlesbrough.
The Frenchman’s decision has seen 21-year-old Rob Holding start against a strong City side, containing Sergio Aguero in the attack.
Arsenal confirmed their line-up via their official Twitter account prior to the 3.00pm kick-off at Wembley.

Additionally, of those draws includes a 2-2 stalemate against Pep Guardiola’s team at the Emirates Stadium.
However, the Gunners do boast a very good recent history in the FA Cup and since 2002 they have won it five times, while also making the semi-final stage a further seven times.
Supporters and Wenger will now be looking to earn more silverware from the competition this time around with the club currently struggling in the Premier League alongside already being knocked out of the Champions League.
