Patrick Vieira and Mikel Arteta face off in opposing dug outs tomorrow night, united by their proud history as trophy-winning former Arsenal captains.
Now respective managers of Arsenal and Crystal Palace, the one-time midfield rivals are also joined at the hip in admiration for their coaching guru Arsene Wenger.
'I think we were all guided and felt a different way about the game because we had Arsene as a manager,' Arteta revealed.
'He started a fire in us to be a coach. Not only me or Patrick, but many others, with his way of treating everybody at the club and how he felt about the game.
