ARSENAL will complete a Premier League double over Manchester United for the first time since 2007 if they win at the Emirates this weekend.
So we thought that would be a good opportunity to take a look back at both sides’ teams from 13 years ago when the Gunners prevailed.

And Arsenal had even more reason to feel positive about the return fixture at Highbury because they welcomed back Thierry Henry to the side, after he played no part in the game earlier on in the season at the Theatre of Dreams.

But United boasted their own depth of talent with the pair of 21-year-old’s in Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo adding to a stable back four of Patrice Evra, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra.
So, how did the game play out?
Well, the first real chance of the match went United’s way as a corner found its way out to Rooney 25 yards from goal and his venomous effort was tipped over brilliantly by Jens Lehmann.
The German shot stopper was tested again shortly before the break when another corner was met by Henrik Larsson, only for Lehmann to dive across to his left to keep the Swede out.
But eight minutes into the second half the visitors did take the lead when a deflected cross from Evra was swept home by the diving head of Rooney.

And the match stayed that way until the 83rd minute when a Tomas Rosicky cross was touched on by Henry before Robin van Persie came in at the back post to lash into the roof of the net.
The game looked to be heading towards a draw, but with just one minute of the 90 remaining Emmanuel Eboue’s cross was met with aplomb by Henry who headed powerfully beyond Edwin van der Sar to win the game for the Gunners.
Meanwhile, Wenger’s side ended up fourth, eight points ahead of North London rivals Tottenham.
What will happen when the two sides meet again on Saturday?
