On Friday, May 22nd the first leg of the 2009 FA Youth Cup Final will take place at the Emirates Stadium between Arsenal and Liverpool.
The competition is one of the biggest of its kind at the U-18 age level and is a prestigious reward for a hard year's work.
The Arsenal academy has been banded around as one of the best in Europe for some time and this two-legged tie offers Steve Bould and his charges the opportunity to show just what they can do.
But who are the real stars in the making in the Arsenal youth setup?
Just who do the fans think will become the next Kieran Gibbs and step into the first team squad?
Indeed some have made this step already having played in Carling Cup games and sat on the bench at Premiership games for Arsene Wenger's senior side.
While all the team are talented, here we look at those who have stood out to date and who to watch for over what promises to be a tight affair in the finals.
