Best FA Cup games involving United

So far it has been a disappointing season for Manchester United. With Thursday's loss to Midtjylland the only realistic chance for united winning a trophy is the FA Cup.
Monday they visit Shrewsbury, a tricky fixture.
Over the years Man United has been involved in some mouth watering ties in the FA Cup.

Manchester United 0 Arsenal 2
This game led to the departure of David Beckham from Manchester United in 2003. Ferguson was so furious that he kicked a boot which ended up hitting Beckham just above the eye. While Beckham played down the incident, his days at Old Trafford were numbered.

Manchester United 3 Millwall 0
While this game is not known for being explosive,  it's significance cannot be ignored. It is the last time Manchester United won the FA Cup. A youthful Cristiano Ronaldo was among the scorers as United easily won the game at the Millennium Stadium.

Manchester United would later appear in two other finals,  against Arsenal in 2005 where they completely outplayed Arsenal but ended up losing on penalty shootout and Chelsea in 2007 losing by a single goal from Didier Drogba.

The replay

A highly explosive semi-final encounter with Arsenal in 1999 was settled by perhaps the greatest goal in the FA Cup history. The dream for the Treble had just began

Andy Cole was one of the most feared strikers in world football. His strike partnership with Dwight Yorke was fearsome especially in from 1998-2001. Here are some goal highlights from Andy Cole as I wish him a quick recovery.

This combination with Dwight Yorke against Barcelona was telepathic..

Some of his best goals..
The partnership was just crazy...
All his goals for Manchester United
What about this one against Bayern Munich..
We go back to 1996/97 season champions league against FC Porto.

Manchester United vs Chelsea goal highlights

Some great goals between Manchester United and Chelsea.

Gianfranco Zola solo goal in 1998..

My favourite Cristiano Ronaldo 2008 Champions League final
Another from,  Cristiano Ronaldo in 2004...

What about this cracker of a game that ended 5-3 in favour of  United in

The speed of Antonio Valencia is so devastating.

One of the finest players to grace Stamford Bridge..Didier Drogba scored this in the FA CUP final...

Come on United. The best team.  Three points against Chelsea will do me good.
