FA Cup: Emery confirms five Arsenal players to miss Blackpool clash

Arsenal news Piers Morgan claims Gunners star is ‘The British Messi

The FA Cup will be taken more seriously, as it remains a premier opportunity to take home silverware in Unai Emery's first season with the club, but especially in these early matches, we will nearly certainly continue to see young players given their chance to prove their merits. Will Ramsey play with us after July?

But, after seeing off Terry McPhillips' side 2-1 in a tight Carabao Cup meeting earlier in the season, Emery wants to make sure he does not endure a similar afternoon as he did when his Sevilla side were embarrassed by third-tier Racing Santander in a 2013 Copa del Rey tie.

"He didn't feel well after the first half and said for us to change".

"This morning Dinos Mavropanos started to train after I think five months".

Ramsey and the Gunners have failed to advance in contract talks and it seems that Juventus are ready to pounce in and give Ramsey a shot in the Serie A.

Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal will be assessed ahead of the game as they look to return from injury but the duo are unlikely to be risked in the FA Cup while Sead Kolasinac should be rested.

"We'll need to play really well and maybe they'll need to be off it a little bit".

"This is all to be verified, for now he is an Arsenal player".

The same goes for Shkodran Mustafi, who came off at half-time in the win over Fulham with a minor hamstring complaint.

Blackpool midfielder Jordan Thompson will complete his three-match suspension this weekend, while Curtis Tilt and Oliver Turton are once again likely to miss out due to their respective injuries.

"In the history (of the FA Cup), it's been very important for us". I remember each match when it is arriving in the cup, another surprise (could happen) in this competition. "It will be very hard but we're excited for this competition and are looking forward to starting on Saturday".
