Between them, they are responsible for some of the best goals English football has ever seen and helped bring the kind of success to Arsenal that Gunners fans in 2017 can only dream of. 26 shots were fired in, 25 of them from within the confines of the penalty area - both attacks clearly fancied their chances, and both defences were happy to oblige.
Although Europa League glory would guarantee United a Champions League spot for next season, Scholes is confident Mourinho's men will do enough to secure their path in the Premier League by finishing in the top four.
The last seven Premier League meetings between these two sides have produced 27 goals - 3.86 per game, on average.
Arsenal now sit way down in sixth place, six points behind Liverpool as Arsenal look increasingly likely to finish outside the top four for the first time in Wenger's 21-year tenure.More news: 3500 pounds of cocaine seized near Puerto Rico; 4 arrested
This is only the second time that Arsenal have found themselves outside the top five in the Premier League as late as April in a season under Arsene Wenger - the other occasion was in April 2006. There will be so much riding on this game, which could mark a shift in the balance of power between the two teams. "Winning the Premier League is hard and we are out of the Champions League, so the FA Cup is the probably the best chance we have this season".
Burnley have won nine of their 14 matches at Turf Moor but are still to taste victory on the road in the Premier League, drawing three and losing 12 of their 15 away games.

On current form, Tottenham should be assured of a top-three finish by the time this game comes around, so United's greater need for points could be a pivotal factor. Everton's poor record at the Emirates does not bode well and this might yet be Wenger's last game as Arsenal manager.
