Will Arsenal End 9 Year Dry Spell With FA Cup Victory?

As the FA Cup final fast approaches, we take a quick look at each club’s chances of winning the title…

There is a lot of pressure on Arsenal ahead of this weekend’s big game, as the team is keener than ever to end its long wait for a trophy. But Hull City looks set to continue its sensational performance this season and put up a good fight in the FA Cup Final.

Will Arsenal crack under the pressure? Can the underdogs rise to the challenge? Could we see Arsenal celebrating their first trophy in nearly a decade? Only time will tell, but we think the Gunners have the edge this time.

Arsen Wenger spoke to reporters earlier today, commenting, “There’s a huge desire to finish the job in the FA Cup. There is a positive pressure there. There’s always a huge expectancy. We have played many games under that pressure this season.

“I don’t feel there is any danger of complacency,” he continued. “We’ve had a hard FA Cup run. This is an opportunity for us to crown our season well. It will look better if we win it. A victory would make me very happy because our fans expect that and we want to make them happy.”

Arsenal might be your best bet this weekend, but there’s still an outside chance that underdogs Hull City could steal a win. What do you think?
