It’s an Arsenal doubleheader day! Both the men and the women are in cup competition action. The men play Liverpool in the Carabao Cup 4th round. The women play a new-look Manchester City side in the semifinals of the FA Cup (oddly, last year’s FA Cup has yet to be concluded on the women’s side of things).
In other Arsenal news for U.S. fans to wake up to, both Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Bukayo Saka have been called into the England side for the upcoming matches against Wales (friendly), Belgium, and Denmark (both Nations League). It’s Bukayo’s first senior call-up and is richly deserved. Maitland-Niles made his first senior appearance last break against Denmark.
