Oxford vs Arsenal: FA Cup prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results, odds today

Arsenal will be hoping to avoid a huge FA Cup upset as they travel to face Oxford tonight.

No club has won the FA Cup more often than the Gunners, who have lifted the trophy no fewer than 14 times throughout their history, with the last triumph coming in 2020.

Clearly, all eyes are on the Premier League - where Arsenal still hold a five-point advantage over Manchester City at the summit despite a goalless draw with Newcastle last time out - but a deep run in this competition would be another major statement of intent from a club on the up.


Oxford currently sit 15th in League One and seem unlikely to trouble the top six or relegation places under Karl Robinson. The reward for tonight’s winners is a daunting trip to Manchester City in the fourth round.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Oxford vs Arsenal is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off today, Monday January 9, 2023.

The Kassam Stadium in Oxford will host the match.
