Arsenal draw Coventry City in FA Cup 4th Round

Julian Finney

Arsenal have drawn Coventry City at home in the 4th round of the FA Cup.

Arsenal will host League One side Coventry City in the 4th round of the FA Cup. The Sky Blues actually paid a visit to the Emirates in last season's Capital One Cup, and were dispatched 6-1, with the game notable for Olivier Giroud's first Arsenal goal.

Arsenal will obviously welcome the draw and the chance to rotate some players, especially ahead of a difficult February which includes a trip to Liverpool and home matches against Manchester United and Bayern Munich. Arsenal, though, will have to treat Coventry City seriously; three seasons ago, Arsenal had difficulty getting past League One sides Huddersfield Town and Leyton Orient, and Arsenal, of course, went out at home against Blackburn Rovers last year. This, however, should be a chance to sprinkle some of the younger members of the side (Gedion Zelalem, perhaps?) along the older members of the squad.

The tie will take place on the weekend of January 25th.
