Storify News | Arsenal will travel to Bloomfield Road to face Blackpool’s third division team in the 2018/19 FA Cup third round on Sunday (1/6). Arsenal this season has beaten Blackpool in another competition, and they are determined to repeat it.
Arsenal this season have met Blackpool in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup. Arsenal narrowly won 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium. Two Arsenal goals were scored by Stephan Lichtsteiner and Emile Smith-Rowe, while one Blackpool goal was scored by Paudie O’Connor.
Arsenal and Blackpool both lost one player in the match. Matteo Guendouzi got a second yellow card in the 56th minute, while the scorer Connor was red carded straight on 84 minutes. Arsenal escaped, but Tottenham were then defeated in the quarter-finals.
Arsenal meet again with Blackpool, but this time in the third round of the FA Cup, and they play away.
Arsenal have just won 4-1 to host Fulham in the Premier League through goals from Granit Xhaka, Alexandre Lacazette, Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The victory was greatly needed by Arsenal, who in the previous two matches drew 1-1 against Brighton and were made to Liverpool 1-5.
Blackpool themselves are without a win in their last four matches in League One (M0 S1 K3). A number of poor results have kept them in the 10th place in the standings.
Arsenal’s confidence has returned, and it can be a valuable capital for a visit to Bloomfield Road.
Last season, with Arsene Wenger, Arsenal also started the FA Cup in round three. Arsenal played away against Nottingham Forest, lost 2-4, and immediately ran aground. This time, with Unai Emery, Arsenal certainly did not want to experience the same thing.
