Notes: Walker got injured on the 35th minute, he tried to carry on but inevitably was substituted by Sergi Gómez
Sergio Gómez played as LB, this relocated João Cancelo as RB
Laporte inherited the captain armband from Gündoğan, who at first seemed to tell Laporte that the captain armband should be given to someone else, but quickly backed off from that opinion
After the 4 substitutions were made, the formation changed into a 4-2-2-2/4-4-2 with Laporte as left CB, Aké as LB, Bernardo Silva as right CMF, Sergio Gómez as left CMF, Álvarez as right SS, Haaland as left CF, Palmer as left AMF/LMF and Mahrez as right AMF/RMF

Notes: The formation above, display the team in defensive phase, but it morphed into a 3-2-2-3/3-6-1 almost consistently everytime Manchester City retrieved the ball possession from Arsenal
Stones withdraw injured at the 47th minute of the 1st half, but Laporte wasn't ready yet to play as he still had his training wear, the team played for a full minute with Rodrigo as right CB and De Bruyne with Gündoğan as CMFs
With Laporte on the pitch, he played as left CB, this relocated Akanji as right CB
Walker played as a pure RB/RWB
Álvarez played as SS alongside Haaland, this relocated De Bruyne as a some kind of right AMF/RWF

Akanji played as right CB, this relocated Rúben Dias as left CB, Aké as LB and Bernardo Silva as RWF/RMF
Phillips went in as central DMF at first, relocating Rodri as right CMF, but then, they quickly changed positions

Substitutions: Laporte for Aké (65 mn - Injury), Álvarez for Haaland (84 mn) and Walker for De Bruyne (88 mn)
Notes: Positionally, Manchester City started the game with their common 4-3-3 formation with key players such as Stones as right CB, Rodri as central DMF and Gündoğan as left CMF, but during most the game, Stones played as right DMF, displacing Rodri as left DMF and pushing Gündoğan slightly upfield as left AMF next to De Bruyne, forming a "midfield square"; the formation above only display the positioning of the players whenever John Stones is playing as DMF
Álvarez played more as a SS rather than as CF
Walker played as RB, this formed a 5-man defense line with Laporte as LB and Stones permanently slotted between Akanji and Rúben Dias

Short Free Kick: Kevin De Bruyne/İlkay Gündoğan

Substitutions: Foden for De Bruyne (76 mn), Aké for Grealish (89 mn) and Laporte for Walker (94 mn - Injury)
Notes: Gündoğan scored the fastest ever FA Cup goal in the history of the competition on this match, after 13 seconds
Midway through the 2nd half, Stones relatively started to play more on the defense rather than in the midfield
Foden played as central AMF, this positioned Gündoğan relatively deeper, more closer to Rodri and Stones
By the 86th minute of the game, Stones settled permanently as right CB alongside Rúben Dias, relocating Walker on the right flank and Akanji on the left flank as pure SBs
Aké played as LB, this changed the formation into a very defensive 5-4-1 lined up as: Walker (RB/CB), Stones (CB), Rúben Dias (CB), Akanji (CB), Aké (LB/CB), Bernardo Silva (RMF/AMF), Rodri (DMF), Gündoğan (DMF/CMF), Foden (LMF) and Haaland (CF)
Laporte played as left CB, this relocated Akanji in Walker's position
