Tim Sherwood’s side have already beat three Premier League sides in the competition including their semi-final win over Liverpool.

Villa have reached the FA Cup final after a gap of 15 years and the players and the coaches are upbeat about making the most of this opportunity.

Another added incentive for Tim Sherwood’s men is that they can qualify for the Europa League if they beat the Gunners –  Otherwise in case of Arsenal winning the game, the Europa League spot will go the 7th placed team in the Premier League, as Arsenal have already qualified for the UEFA Champions League by finishing the season in podium.

Arsene Wenger has a healthy and fit squad at his disposal giving him a selection headache. Apart from summer signing Danny Welbeck, who scored the decisive goal in the semi-final against his old club Manchester United, is out with a knee injury.

Other than that, Debuchy, Arteta and Oxlade-Chamberlain are all in contention after returning from injuries.

Shay Given is expected to start in goal for Aston Villa but if he is unable to prove his fitness, Brad Guzan can make his first start in the competition.
