(PRWEB UK) 22 March 2014 -- With the shock exit of Man City in the last round of the FA Cup, Arsenal are now hot favourites to break their nearly nine year trophy drought with just Wigan, Hull and Sheffield United left in the competition. The semi-finals will kick-off at 5pm and 4pm respectively on the 12th and 13th April at Wembley and DSG say they will be covering both matches live. In addition they will be looking at featuring official match highlights on its site football.co.uk.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say: “It’s been a great FA Cup this year with shocking results, magic and a certain romance missing in past seasons. Everyone was expecting Man City to collect the trophy on their way to a domestic triple but the FA Cup has a tendency to upset favourites. Arsenal must be looking at the teams remaining in the competition and even with their injury issue consider the Cup to be well within their reach. Wigan may well have something to say about that as defending champions but you would expect Arsene Wenger and his squad will be confident of beating the Championship outfit and probably beat Hull City in the final. We will be following the game live on our website football.co.uk.”
Jason Hope, Content Manager of DSG believes that this match will prove the end of a serious title challenge from Liverpool “I think Arsene Wenger will be looking forward to finally putting something in the trophy cabinet and the way is clear for Wembley to be the stage for a new period of success for Arsenal. Nine years is a long time for a top four Premier League team to be without honours and it looks like they have a golden opportunity now to win major domestic honours; it’s still entirely possible for a league and cup double of course despite most expecting that battle to be won by either Man City or Chelsea. Arsenal, however, finally have an opportunity for glory and the starved arsenal fans have been growing in voice on the network and hope.”
