Blackpool v Arsenal
Blackpool face Arsenal for the second time this season when they clash in round three of the FA Cup on Saturday.
The Seasiders put up a good fight at the Emirates in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup earlier this term, however, they ultimately came up just short in a 2-1 defeat.
Blackpool will undoubtedly take confidence from that performance when they welcome the Gunners to Bloomfield Road.
The Lancashire outfit have failed to win any of their last five League One outings and appear to have blown their chance of challenging for the play-offs.
Boss Terry McPhillips is unable to call on midfielder Jordan Thompson as he completes his three-match suspension on Saturday.
Defensive duo Curtis Tilt and Oliver Turton have struggled with injuries all season and will again be left to watch on from the sidelines.
Max Clayton is a doubt due to a hamstring problem, while Mark Cullen and Jimmy Ryan remain long-term absentees.
Unai Emery will get his first taste of the FA Cup on the north-west coast as he looks to continue the fine work done by Arsene Wenger, who lifted the trophy a record seven times.
Arsenal have a number of injury issues to contend with and Emery is expected to rotate rather than risk picking up any further problems.
Mesut Ozil, Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal, Konstantinos Mavropanos and Shkodran Mustafi are all set to miss out.
Emery named a youthful looking side when the two clubs met in October and he is likely to bring the likes of Emile-Smith Rowe, Bukayo Saka, Eddie Nketiah and Joe Willock could be involved.
The Tangerines have won two of the three previous FA Cup meetings with Arsenal, although the Premier League side won the most recent encounter 3-1 in December 1999.
