Selection: Man city vs Arsenal

Bet: Arsenal to qualify

Info: There may be value with City to win the competition as mentioned but after seeing the ridiculous price of 7/4 being offered on arsenal to progress by any means in what is a close to 50/50 tie, I'll be backing them. Likely to start with a strong team with the likes of walcott, Vela and Rosicky leading the line
