The match will also be Pablo Mari’s first chance to match-up with his old club.
Arsenal’s advancement in the FA Cup allowed few guaranteed openings in the schedule, though Man City is also favored to advance with a Wednesday trip to Sheffield Wednesday.
The Gunners are 7W-5D-2L since Arteta took the reins for a Boxing Day draw versus Bournemouth.
The match gives both sides three matches in a short period, with Arsenal hosting West Ham on Saturday and visiting Brighton on March 14.
City will have one less day’s rest after Sunday’s Manchester Derby at Old Trafford, and hosts Burnley on March 14.
