Can you name Arsenal’s XI from the 2005 FA Cup final against Man Utd?

On May 21, 2005, Arsenal won their third FA Cup in four seasons by defeating Manchester United at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. 

Despite United dominating much of the game, Arsenal held on to draw 0-0 before triumphing in the penalty shootout.

“We really had to dig deep,”  Arsene Wenger said afterwards. “I’m very proud because it was a difficult game.

“We knew we had to be a little bit more cautious than usual because we knew we had less attacking potential than we normally have.

“There were some times in the second half when we were a bit lucky but we defended very well and to keep a clean sheet is good. Of course it is bad for the team that loses on penalties but it was a very intense game.

“We practised penalties a bit but you don’t score because of the practising – keeping your nerve is more important.”

It would turn out to be Arsenal’s last trophy until 2014 and we’re asking you to name their starting XI from that afternoon.

If you’re looking for another brain-teaser, why not try and name the Arsenal XI from Patrick Vieira’s debut in 1996? It’s more difficult than you’d expect…
