The FA Cup final teams

Arsenal reached the FA Cup final by beating Reading 2-1 in the semi-finals. Arsenal has won the FA Cup eleven times, including winning the 2014 FA Cup beating Hull 3-2 at Wembley.

Aston Villa made it through to the FA Cup final by beating Liverpool 2-1 in their semi-final. Aston Villa have won the FA Cup 7 times but they have not won since 1957, so they will be keen to stop Arsenal keeping the FA Cup and take it for themselves this year.

Fans and players alike will be hoping for a warm, dry day with a light breeze. This will make for good playing conditions and a fine final day for spectators.
