The FA Cup quarter-final tie between Manchester United and Arsenal at Old Trafford is currently level at 1-1.

Jack Wilshere may not be playing in tonight’s FA Cup tie between Manchester United and Arsenal, but he is certainly not missing any of the action.

The England international midfielder is currently sidelined with an ankle injury, but he is following the game on TV.

Prior to kickoff, the Arsenal star took to social networking site Twitter to post the following picture:

It has been an entertaining first half at Old Trafford, with the quarter-final tie level at 1-1.

Nacho Monreal put Arsenal in the lead from close range in the 25th minute, but just four minutes later Wayne Rooney restored parity when he headed home from an Angel di Maria cross.

Both United and Arsenal have gone close to adding to the scoreline, and one suspects that the second half will be just as entertaining.

Louis van Gaal’s side will be hoping that the home fans play a role in the second 45 minutes, as Arsenal have been very brave in the first half.
