It’s been twenty years since he became the boss, and without a doubt, is one of the greatest managers Arsenal and the Premier League have seen in the modern era. He’s won the Premier League three times, and the FA cup six times. In 2003-2004, he led the Gunners to a season in which they won the league without losing a single league game.

We did get loads of goals…just not from Barcelona. PSG came out with a fire that got them to a quick start with an 18th-minute goal by Ángel Di Maria. After that, it was all PSG for the rest of the match. The final score ended with a 4-0 win for the French side.
