Retired star Alejandro Moreno believes we will lift the FA Cup trophy for a second year running, despite a tricky quarter-finals draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford, according to ESPN.
The former Venezuelan international believes our form will see us through the tie, regardless of our history against Louis van Gaal’s side.
“I would love to say Bradford City but to be quite honest, I believe Arsenal will win it once again,” he said.
A brace from Olivier Giroud was enough to see us comfortably past Middlesbrough in the fifth round, with an away game against Manchester United our reward. We have struggled at Old Trafford in the past, but we will be facing a different side this time around.
The new Dutch manager has struggled to get the best out of his stars, and the club have been playing some of their worst football in years. Despite that however, they still find themselves third in the Premier League, and in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
It certainly won’t be an easy game, but if we can maintain our current form then we should still progress to the semi-finals.

Manchester United and Liverpool are arguably our only real competition still in the cup, so dramatic upsets not withstanding, a win against the Red Devils should put us in a fantastic position to retain the trophy.
