Manchester United and Arsenal don’t like each other much.
And in 1999, they really didn’t like each other. Arsenal were the side trying to prevent United from landing the Premier League and the FA Cup, but Alex Ferguson saw them off them in both competitions.
But in the FA Cup semi-final replay, they managed it by the finest margins, and the finest of goals.
After Dennis Bergkamp had missed a penalty to put Arsenal ahead, Ryan Giggs weaved his magic.
The Welshman waltzed through Arsenal’s defence, leaving Martin Keown on his arse, and smashed the ball into the roof of the net.
It proved enough for 10-man United, who marched on to Wembley and brushed Newcastle aside.
The side of 1998-99 are still unmatched among Premier League-era English team, after they won the Treble.
And it has to be the best ever FA Cup goal. It’s certainly the best goal scored at Villa Park…
