Arsenal vs Coventry - Match preview and team news

Arsenal will continue their pursuit of a first FA Cup win since 2005 when League One side Coventry City make their second visit to the Emirates Stadium.

Arsene Wenger’s team were comfortable winners in the third round against local rivals Tottenham, and will be heavy favourites to come through this tie. Still top of the Premier League thanks to a six match winning run that stretches back to Boxing Day, Arsenal really must see this season as their best opportunity in a long while to end their trophy drought, though they could do without any more injuries.

Without a ground and looking in dire straits financially, Coventry have responded superbly well this season, lifting themselves up to mid-table having started with -10 points. Scoring goals has been a major factor in their rise, with the experienced Leon Clarke and promising youngster Callum Wilson forging a prolific strike partnership, although the latter will be absent due to a shoulder injury.

Other than Wilson, Coventry boss Steven Pressley should have a fully-fit squad.

Wenger has no such luxury, with Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey and Tomas Rosicky still out as well as long-term absentees Abou Diaby and Theo Walcott. Nicklas Bendtner returns from an ankle injury.
