Arsenal will take on Hull City in the 2014 FA Cup final at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 5pm BST. Live coverage is on UTV, ITV 1 and BT Sport 1. Radio coverage of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Arsenal made it to the FA Cup final after defeating Wigan Athletic on penalties in the penultimate round of the competition. Jordi Gomez gave a lead for the Latics in the first half and they were edging towards making it to the second final in two seasons, after winning the cup last year.

However, Per Mertesacker's goal in the 82nd minute saw the game end in a 1-1 draw after the end of extra time, forcing the course of the game to be decided on penalties. Arsenal won 4-2 on penalties to seal a place in the final of this season's FA Cup.

Meanwhile, Hull had a 5-3 victory over Sheffield United in the semi final fixture in April. The Tigers came from behind in two occasions as goals from Yannick Sagbo, Matty Fryatt Tom Huddlestone, Stephen Quinn and David Meyler saw Steve Bruce's side seal a place in the final at Wembley.

Bruce would be looking to field a strong team to defeat Arsenal. The Gunners have been without silverware for close to a decade and a win over Hull will see Arsene Wenger's side end their trophy drought.

What Managers Say

Arsene Wenger: "No matter what the result will be, this club - and this is always most important - can deal with the consequences of any game. What is important is that we come out of the game and have the feeling that we gave absolutely our best, our total energy to play at our best and then you always accept the consequences."

Steve Bruce: "We've tried to keep it normal, but you can tell it's not normal. You can tell from watching the players train that it's not a normal week. For the first time in three or four weeks, there is a real spring in the step of the players. You can detect that and it will build as the week goes on, and so it should."
