Arsenal and Aston Villa get to face off in just a few hours at Wembley in the FA Cup final. It's the biggest match of the year for both teams, even if it may not feel like it to Arsenal fans. With the Gunners finishing the year in third in the Premier League and managing to fall out of the Champions League in the Round of 16 yet again, the FA Cup represents their only chance at bringing home a trophy.
And for Aston Villa, the same is true. Except the big difference is that there was never any chance that Villa were going to get any other hardware. They might have dreamed of the League Cup, but a loss to Leyton Orient in the early rounds under Paul Lambert dashed that hope.
For Villa, today's match represents their first chance to win one of the world's most prestigious football trophies since 2000. That year they lost in heartbreaking fashion 1-0 to Chelsea. Prior to that, Aston Villa were last in the cup when they last won in in 1957, beating Matt Busby's Manchester United 2-1.
For Arsenal the wait hasn't been nearly as long. They're the current holders of the Cup having beaten Hull City in last year's final. Prior to that they had ten other times, including 2002, 2003, and 2005. They are currently tied with Manchester United for most wins in FA Cup history with eleven while Aston Villa have seven.
