Match in Focus

Arsenal v Aston Villa

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • There has not been more than a one-goal margin of victory in the last ten FA Cup finals
Expert verdict
Arsenal are red-hot favourites to retain the FA Cup, but the holders face a trickier test than the odds suggest when they take on Aston Villa at Wembley. The Gunners will be reasonably happy with their form in the second half of the season, although they remain capable of chucking in dodgy performances under pressure.
