Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere expressed his delight after the Gunners' 4-0 win over Aston Villa in final of the FA Cup.

The north London club became just the sixth team to retain the famous old trophy a feat they had achieved previously in 2002-2003.

Arsenal needed a winner during extra-time to beat Hull City last year, but this time around they were in complete control and dominated the game right from the start.

"It's a bit different from last year. I thought we controlled the game the whole way through and never looked like losing, so we could enjoy it a bit more and get ready for the celebrations," Wilshere told Arsenal's official site.

The England international, who came on as a second-half substitute praised Francis Coquelin, who put in an assured performance in the middle of the park.

Wilshere also thanked the fans for the support and believes that they felt more pressure than the players, but is now hoping they can have a great time with the team during the parade on Sunday, 31 May.

"From the minute go, Francis was brilliant and the midfield dominated. Once we got on top of their midfield, with Theo's pace and Alexis' trickery, we were going to create chances and we did that.

"They were tremendous the whole way through. I think they feel the pressure a little bit more than us but today they were brilliant again and they're going to enjoy it with us tomorrow as well," the Three Lions midfielder added.
