If Manchester City play their back-up goalkeeper, Claudio Bravo, against Arsenal in the League Cup final in February, the Gunners will have faced a City back-up shot-stopper in every round.

In September, Arsenal faced Doncaster Rovers in the third round of the League Cup.

The Rovers put out Ian Lawlor, who transferred to the League One side from City in 2017 after making just one appearance for the Sky Blues.

In the following round against Norwich, the Gunners went up against Angus Gunn, who’s on loan from City until the end of the season.

Round five saw Arsenal beat West Ham 1-0 – their goalkeeper is Joe Hart. The 30-year-old is still technically a City player but hasn’t featured for them consistently since 2015/16.

During the Gunners’ 2-1 semi-final win over Chelsea, we came up against Willy Caballero, who signed for the Blues from City last year.

In the final, it’s likely that City will field Claudio Bravo – their current back-up keeper – rather than first choice Ederson.

Pep Guardiola knows they’re going to win the Premier League title, so he can afford to rest his #1.

If he does field the 34-year-old, Arsenal will have faced a City back-up keeper in every round.

Saying that, you never know, Pep might put out the 24-year-old just to screw with us.

Ederson has kept 11 clean sheets in the Premier League this season.
