Manchester United vs. Arsenal will forever be known for a few defining images from the early 2000s: Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger made sure their teams had maximum will-to-win, and that manifested itself in some amazing matches and plenty of physical confrontations on and off the pitch. It wasn't just about the football match - these two sides, at the top of English football, were trying to establish themselves as the top team in the game.
Things are a little less tense these days - neither team has a chance of winning the Premier League - but it's still a pleasure to get the two teams together for a match that matters. This Monday, the FA Cup gives these two top sides probably their only chance of glory this season. It'll be a tough ask for Arsenal to go to Old Trafford and get a result - but in the Cup, anything can happen. Check out our match analysis and betting tips.
