Arsenal get their FA Cup campaign underway on Saturday evening as they travel north to take on League One side Blackpool in the third round.

The Gunners are coming off a 4-1 victory over Fulham on Tuesday, but have had a mixed bag of results of late, with two wins, two defeats and a draw in their last five matches.

Blackpool are in a bit of a rut after a decent start to the season, picking up just one point from their last four league matches, scoring just once in that time.

The Seasiders have not beaten the north London side since 1970, when they triumphed in a replay at this very same stage of the FA Cup.
