Arsenal v Manchester United: The Brief

Arsenal v Manchester United in the FA Cup is a fixture that evokes memories that are indelibly written into both clubs' histories.

From the sheer unadulterated joy of the 'three-minute final' in 1979, to the searing pain of that 1999 semi-final replay at Villa Park, it is a game that has consistently delivered in the world's oldest cup competition.

Now we have the inviting prospect of a Friday night heavyweight clash between an Arsenal side riding high after last week's victory against Chelsea, and a Manchester United side rejuvenated under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

It is one to get the pulses racing, and you can get in the mood for it by reading our comprehensive match preview, including Unai Emery's thoughts on the game, the latest team news, stats, and analysis of the opposition.
