Arsenal's dramatic penalty shoot-out win over plucky Wigan Athletic in their FA Cup semi-final at Wembley moved Wenger's team one step closer to ending their nine year trophy drought, with just Hull City left in their way. The final will take place on Saturday 17th of May at Wembley and will kick-off at 5pm. Arsenal are now the firm favourites to lift the trophy but Steve Bruce's side will do all they can to upset the odds and heap misery on Arsenal fans.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait has this to say: “This year's FA Cup has been full of shocks and surprises and Wigan nearly pulled off another one in their semi-final with Arsenal. The Gunners were of course the favourites to progress to the final but fans would not have been surprised had Arsenal missed out to an in form Wigan side. Wenger still has work to do though, as Hull will be no push overs and manager Steve Bruce will know exactly how to set up his team to stifle Arsenal's passing play. We will be following the game live on our website Football.co.uk”
Jason Hope, Content Manager of Digital Sports Group believes the FA Cup final will be Wenger chance to re-gain Arsenal fans trust and backing after years of disappointment, “Fans of the north London club have been disappointed time and time again over the last nine years but if Wenger's men can go on to lift the FA Cup on the 17th of May it could be seen as a new dawn and a new era in the Frenchman’s time at Arsenal. But with no Premier League title and the prospect of no Champions League football for the first time under Wenger, failure to win this trophy would almost certainly spell the end of Arsene's tenure at The Emirates.”
