The FA Cup is the world's oldest football trophy with the first edition being held all the way back in 1871.

Many of the biggest stars in the game have made their names in England’s premier knockout competition.

From Arsenal midfield generals to Chelsea top stoppers, take a look to see which stars feature in this prestigious list.

1. Ashley Cole (seven wins)

Ashley Cole is the most successful player in FA Cup history after picking up a record seven winners' medals — a haul that will take some beating.

The England left-back spent most of his decorated career at London clubs Arsenal and Chelsea. 

He won three times with the Gunners (2002, 2003, 2005) before joining their rivals and adding four to his collection (2007, 2009, 2010, 2012).

He even scored a rare goal as Derby fell out of the competition with a 2-1 fifth-round defeat to Brighton in 2019 — his final appearance in the famous tournament.

2= Petr Cech (five)

Indisputably one of the best keepers of all time, Petr Cech's career was full of trophies.

He won four FA Cup medals at Chelsea with former team-mate Cole before heading to North London and taking another crown with old foes Arsenal.

Cech's most iconic moment in the tournament was an incredible save from Liverpool striker Andy Carroll in the final minutes of the 2012 final, which kept the score at 2-1 and secured victory for his side.

2= John Terry (five)

John Terry was the defensive rock of a trophy-laden era at Stamford Bridge. 

In addition to five Premier League titles and a Champions League win in 2012, his illustrious career saw him lift the FA Cup five times during his time in West London.

Legendary skipper JT won his first Wembley final against Aston Villa in 2000 before defeating Manchester United, Everton, Portsmouth and Liverpool in subsequent finals.

2= Patrick Vieira (five)

Patrick Vieira's stellar career included five FA Cup wins with all but one secured during the Arsenal legend's time with the Gunners.

The fearsome midfielder's final triumph came during a short spell with Manchester City, where he offered an experienced hand to Roberto Mancini's side.

Fittingly, Vieira came off the bench for a brief cameo in the final to win a trophy in his final game as a player before embarking on a managerial career which saw him guide Crystal Palace to the semi-finals in 2021-22.

5= 21 players (four)

A total of 21 players have won four FA Cup medals, including a number of Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea greats.

Here is a list of all 21: 

Dennis Bergkamp, Clayton Blackmore, Sol Campbell, Didier Drogba, Paulo Ferreira, Ryan Giggs, Olivier Giroud, Mark Hughes, Salomon Kalou, Roy Keane, Martin Keown, Lauren, Frank Lampard, John Obi Mikel, Gary Neville, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mesut Ozil, Ray Parlour, David Seaman, Paul Scholes, Stuart Taylor.
