2016/17 FA Cup

Arsenal and Aston Villa lock horns in the FA Cup Final at Wembley on Saturday 30th May and it's the perfect opportunity to make use of 888Sport's great welcome offer for new customers giving treble odds on their first bet placed.
The Gunners will try to emulate their feat of winning back-to-back titles achieved in 2002-03 by lifting the FA Cup on Saturday, which will be a record 12th FA Cup triumph, making the Londoners the most successful side in the tournament's history. Arsene Wenger's side needed extra time to overcome Reading in the semi-final at Wembley, but Alexis Sanchez produced the goods to prevent a shoot-out and book a return to the stadium for the final.
Aston Villa last took part in an FA Cup Final back in 2000 where they lost 1-0 to Chelsea at the old Wembley and have not tasted success in this competition since beating Manchester United in 1957. Still, the Villans will relish their underdog tag and play without pressure as they did when recording a 2-1 victory over Liverpool in the semi-final to set up this tie.
If this game follows the same trend as the previous two Premier League meetings, then Arsenal could well be the team celebrating having recorded 0-3 and 5-0 successes over Aston Villa already this season.
But we have seen plenty of upsets in this season's FA Cup already such as plucky Bradford knocking Chelsea out of the competition and we only have to go back a couple of seasons to remember Wigan's against the odds FA Cup Final success against heavy favourites Manchester City, so anything could happen on Saturday!
