Bradford v Arsenal in numbers

2- was only the second time that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has lost a competitive match against lower-league opposition since taking over in September 1996. The previous occasion came when Championship side Burnley beat a youthful Arsenal 2-0 in the last eight of the League Cup in December 2008.

9- Bradford have won nine successive penalty shoot-outs - more than any other English side in history. Carlisle were the last team to get the better of the Bantams in a penalty shoot-out, winning 4-3 in the first round of the League Cup in August 2006.

65 - the number of league places separating Premier League Arsenal and League Two Bradford.

399 - Total number of international caps in Arsenal's starting XI.

4,334 - the number of days since the sides last met. Arsenal won 2-0 at Highbury with goals from Lauren and Ray Parlour in the Premier League in January 2001. David Seaman, Lee Dixon and Dennis Bergkamp were also in the starting XI.

£7,500 - Cost of Bradford's team in transfer fees. Only one player, James Hanson from non-league Guiseley, commanded a transfer fee. By contrast Arsenal's starting XI cost in excess of £65m.

23,971 - Bradford's sell-out crowd for the match, their biggest since 1960 and a rise of 13,624 on the attendance

£300,000 - the amount that Bradford estimate to have made from the match, enough to wipe out half of their projected £600,000 overspend on player wages for the season.
