What's actually happening under Solskjaer? Man United star reveals dressing-room details

"Winning the FA Cup is a realistic aim for both teams, but the consolation for whoever loses this tie is that both teams are right back in the race for fourth place".

Alexis Sanchez has struggled to make an impression at Manchester United (Martin Rickett/PA).

That day, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sat in the away dugout at Old Trafford, Craig Bellamy and Ryan Giggs were in the starting lineups and Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie were "two of the best strikers in the world" according to United's newly-recruited record signing.

The 29-year-old is one of the most industrious wingers in football, and it would be interesting to see how he fits into the scheme of things under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Arsenal's recent form hasn't been anything like as consistent, with a big defeat to Liverpool and a more recent 1-0 loss to West Ham pegging them back in the title race and leaving them in danger of being overhauled by a rampant United side on the Premier League table.

Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling and Marouane Fellaini all missed out on Saturday's win over Brighton, and Solskjaer confirmed the trio will be unavailable once again.

Man United's caretaker boss has issued a warning to Gunners fans, saying Sanchez will "love it" if the crowd turn against him, only serving to fire him up more. "It's always a big game, United-Arsenal, and it'll be a big one because it's an important game, obviously for United to keep the momentum going".

Arsenal will feel good about its chances here, looking to avoid a trip to United at all costs. "A lot of the times, the games I watched, it was bad".

"I am not surprised if they did".

Arsenal will be without former Man United stars Danny Welbeck (ankle) and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (foot), while Hector Bellerin's knee injury has effectively ended his season.

Reports in the British media have suggested that United have rejected an approach from Arsenal to take Eric Bailly on loan for the rest of the season but Solskjaer said he was not aware of any approach for the Ivory Coast defender.

The Chilean has missed the club's last two games, but is expected to be on the squad to face his former club.

Much has changed at both clubs during the intervening 20 years and Giggs admits he can not believe that two decades have passed since his iconic goal.
