Oxford United vs Arsenal live stream: match preview
Top of the pyramid leaders Arsenal will visit Oxford United on Monday night in a game that will be remembered for years to come at Kassam Stadium. The two sides last met in 2003, when the Gunners won 2-0. Can the League One club take revenge for the FA Cup 19 years later? Make sure you know how watch a live stream of Oxford United vs Arsenal from anywhere.
Arsenal have shocked everyone by maintaining their early form in the second part of the season – and with a first Premier League title in their sights since the ‘Invincibles’ went unbeaten in 03/04, the FA Cup could be seen as an unwanted distraction for Mikel Arteta’s Young Side. Winning is good practice to get into though, and with high-flying Newcastle holding the Gunners to a goalless draw at the Emirates on Tuesday night – only the third time they’ve dropped points in the league all season – they’ll want to get here taste victory again.
Oxford came into this match after a 1-0 home defeat to Exeter City – the team they beat to set up this glamorous draw against the Gunners. The U’s moved past the Greeks by four on that day in November, but they have struggled to send teams so far this season and are 14th in League One after finishing just outside the play-offs last season. Their best-ever FA Cup run ended with a quarter-final in 1964, but a win here would give Karl Robinson’s side the confidence to believe they can beat anyone.
Oxford United vs Arsenal kicks off on Monday, January 9 at 8pm GMT / 3pm EST at Kassam Stadium, Oxford. Make sure you know how to watch a live stream of Oxford United vs Arsenal from anywhere in the world.
