Arsenal vs. Man Utd: Outright Winner

Classic FA Cup Matches Arsenal vs. Man Utd

The 2005 final represents a by-gone time when the Gunners could muster the mental strength to beat Man Utd, even when they didn't always deserve to.

It was still the invincible generation with Henry, Ljungberg, Pires and Viera.

A 0-0 in which Man Utd probably deserved to win the game, was decided on penalties. The rest is history.

Man Utd fans watch this for the 4-0 scoreline. Arsenal fans watch this for the Flamini's kamikaze sliding tackle on Nani after he was caught showboating.

That solo goal we will always remember Giggs and his hairy chest for.

  • Probable formation: 4-2-3-1

Expected Starting XI

  • Cech
  • Monreal - Sokratis - Mustafi - Lichsteiner
  • Xhaka, Guendouzi

  • Probable formation: 4-3-3

  • Sanchez, Lukaku, Mata

Arsenal vs. Man Utd Match Preview

This match is a really hard one to call. Unai Emery's Arsenal are a little unpredictable of late, losing 1-5 to Liverpool but beating Chelsea 2-0 a couple of weeks later. But their home record is still very impressive. Having only lost to Man City in the league and Spurs in the Carabao Cup at the Emirates. 

Manchester United, are enjoying a renaissance under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, winning seven of their last seven matches since the Norwegian took the helm.

Either one of Arsenal or Man Utd have featured in the FA Cup final for the past 5 years

Man Utd will be without their in-form attacker, Rashford, who is being rested for fatigue, so it will be a rare start for Lukaku. It will also be a chance for players like Fred to make an impression on their baby-faced manager.

Arsenal are still struggling with their right-back position, with Bellerin being ruled out for the rest of the season. So, it looks like Lichsteiner will be the man to play in that position. An experienced player who just hasn't looked at the races so far this season.

We think this will be a close one. Arsenal's home record remains excellent and we can't see them losing this. The Gunners will not fancy a replay at Old Trafford where they still have an awful record. Man Utd on the other hand still seem to be riding high on the post-Mourinho honeymoon period. A draw could be a likely result.
