However, the Gunners striker has only bagged three FA Cup goals during his time in England, which does not see him crack the top 10 list.

The top spot on the list belongs to Chelsea and Ivory Coast legend Didier Drogba who bagged an impressive 12 goals in 29 appearances.

Drogba, who won four FA Cup titles, has made the new Wembley Stadium his second ground eight of his 12 goals came at the arena in semi-finals and finals.

The Chelsea star's countryman, Francois Zoko, comes in at second spot after netting 11 goals in 27 appearances across stints with Carlisle United, Notts County, Blackpool, Stevenage.
