Moussa was not even born when Coventry lifted the FA Cup in 1987 but the generation of 2014 are dreaming of adding their name into cup folklore.

"A good result at Arsenal would make history for the boys who are playing now," he told the Express. "You can write your name in history.

"I was born in 1989 in Belgium and the team I watched a lot as a kid was Arsenal, because of the French connection and Belgium being close to France.

"Belgian kids idolise French players, especially around that time of the World Cup and Euro 2000.

"Robert Pires, Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira are the players who we felt really close to .

"To see them winning trophies in the Premier League at Arsenal is something I remember.

"We're not fools, we know we're playing against one of the best teams in the country. But I won't be a wide-eyed boy looking to swap shirts. We've had that conversation already, we want to try and get a result. We're not there just to turn up, we want to do something special."
