CORAL EXCLUSIVE ODDS!
Firm offers 3/1 Arsenal to win (was 4/9)
Coral have announced they are offering an ‘enhanced’ price on Arsenal to win the FA Cup Final today! (was 4/9) More details below!
Premier League rivals Arsenal and Hull will battle for the right to win the 133rd FA Cup.
Victory for Arsenal would give them their 11th cup and more importantly from a squad confidence perspective the club’s first piece of silverware since 2005
However Arsenal have a poor recent records in finals since their last success nine years ago.
The Gunners lost in the 2006 Champions League final to Barcelona and they followed up that set-back with League Cup final defeats to both Chelsea (2007) and Birmingham City (2011).
Hull meanwhile may lack the history of their more illustrious rivals with Saturday’s final just their first ever appearance on this stage but they have shown this season that on their day they can match anyone in the league.
Liverpool, Newcastle and Tottenham have all struggled to take maximum points against the Tigers and while Steve Bruce’s men did lose both encounters with the Gunners, conceding five goals and scoring none in the process they will look to the success last season of Wigan for inspiration.
On that occasion unfancied Latics stunned Manchester City to win the cup.
The Tigers will be without the cup-tied Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic however in Matty Fryatt they have a forward that loves scoring in the FA Cup.
The former Leicester City striker has scored seven goals in his last eight FA starts including a goal in the semi-final win over Sheffield United.
Arsenal meanwhile will be without long term absentee Theo Walcott however they will be boosted by the return of Jack Wilshere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Keiran Gibbs.
