Michael Owen: Liverpool v Arsenal 2001


Going into the last 10 minutes Arsenal looked like they were cruising to a 1-0 win in the first FA Cup to be held in Cardiff. But a 21 year old Michael Owen had other ideas. Having grabbed an equaliser with a terrific acrobatic finish he then set about terrifying the ageing Arsenal defence with his electric pace. With the Gunners attacking, the ball broke to Patrick Berger inside the Liverpool half, he pinged it into Owen's path to chase. Beating Dixon to the ball, Owen then avoided Tony Adams' attentions and slotted the ball with his left foot home.
