Arsenal attempt to retain the FA Cup

Arsenal are four victories away from retaining the #FACup for a second time, a feat only achieved by a certain team who play in white and reside just up the road in north London. The Gunners’ first back-to-back wins are fresher in the memory, however (2002 & 2003), and were under the same manager in Arsène Wenger. But which group of players were better, the Cup-winning team of 2003 or today’s crop.

This could be a question worth asking again in a few years, as Bellerin appears to have everything a modern full-back could need – he is fast, has fine distribution, and was schooled at #LaMasia, #Barcelona famous academy, before Arsenal enticed him away. The 19-year-old has broken into the first team this season, albeit in arguably the position most up for grabs in Wenger’s first XI.Few #Arsenal fans had heard of Lauren when he arrived at Highbury, but the Cameroon international would go on to become a key member of Arsenal’s Invincibles, an attacking full-back when attacking Arsenal full-backs came into fashion.
