Five Memorable Manchester United & Arsenal FA Cup Ties

Tonight we see old rivals Manchester United and Arsenal go head-to-head in the FA Cup quarter-finals, so we thought we would bring you five memorable matches between these two giants of English Football in this prestigious competition.

Arsenal 1-2 United, 1999 Semi-final Replay

It’s was the last FA Cup semi-final replay between the two sides and this one was special because it featured a red card, a saved penalty in stoppage-time and arguably the competition's greatest goal, scored by Welshman Ryan Giggs.

Nobody will forget these magical words from Martin Tyler: "That's a rather weary one from Vieira. Giggs... Gets past Vieira, past Dixon... Who comes back at him. It's a wonderful run from GIGGS!"

United 0-2 Arsenal, 2003 Fifth Round

It was a game to forget for the Red Devils supporters and it was also the day Sir Alex Ferguson lost his patience with David Beckham. The Scotsman kicked a boot towards Becks and it him in the face. Months later the England midfielder was on his way out the club where he signed for Real Madrid.

Arsenal 0-1 United, 2004 Semi-Final

Looking for their third consecutive FA Cup win and a treble, Arsenal's "Invincibles" faced a Red Devils side in decline and without their best striker (Ruud van Nistelrooy) and defender (Rio Ferdinand). The United supporters made it a hostile atmosphere at Villa Park and the players rose to the occasion, particularly Darren Fletcher and Cristiano Ronaldo. United overcame a shaky start and ended up beating Arsenal thanks to a Paul Scholes spectacular.

Arsenal 0-0 United (5-4 AET and penalties), 2005 Final

It was a game of very few chances and mostly remembered for Ruud van Nistelrooy’s missed opportunities. The game went into penalties and Arsenal were the side who held their nerve to see off United.

United 2-0 Arsenal, 2011 Quarter-Final

Sir Alex Ferguson pulled off several masterstrokes during his 26-and-a-half years at Old Trafford, and beating Arsenal with a midfield of the Da Silva twins, John O'Shea and Darron Gibson is one of them. Edwin van der Sar pulled off a splendid save from Laurent Koscielny in the second-half but two counter attacks started from Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez sealed the game for United.

What’s your prediction for tonight’s game?
