Reading vs Arsenal. FA Cup semi-final. April 18 2015.
Arsenal are set to lock horns with Reading this Saturday when the two sides meet at Wembley for the FA Cup semi-final.
Having dispatched Manchester United at Old Trafford, courtesy a Danny Welbeck winner against his former club in March, Arsenal sealed their passage to Wembley in the FA Cup for the second year running and have since won 8 League games on the bounce.
Reading, on the other hand, are without a win since their quarter-final replay against Bradford City. In fact, the Royals have won just two of their last 13 Championship games.
A total of 24 goals have been scored in the last three meetings between the two sides. However, it will take a major upset for Reading to reach the final as Arsene Wenger’s side have won each of the last 12 fixtures these teams have played.
However, Wenger will have something of a selection dilemma on his hands, with the significant decision to be made over whether he sticks with the Premier League’s in-form team, or whether he uses the cup as an opportunity for squad rotation. Here is a predicted XI.
