Arsenal vs. Manchester United
FA Cup Quarterfinal
Monday, March 9, 2015
12.45 PM PT/3.45 PM ET/7.45 PM BT
(TIME NOTE: The US changed time this weekend, but England doesn't go to summer time until the end of the month, so in the US the match is on an hour later than you'd expect)
Old Trafford, Manchester

This is where we all wanted Arsenal to be. At the business end of one of the Cups, playing a "big" team with a chance to put some ghosts behind them. Both teams have something to prove today - this is United's only chance at silverware this season, and while it's not Arsenal's only chance, it's their best chance. So both teams will come out swinging, wanting to avoid the draw that would force a midweek replay.

The draw for the semifinals will be held shortly after this match concludes, and we of course have coverage of that in its own thread. For now, Arsenal, make sure we have something to cover, OK?
