Price Boost: Arsenal boosted to beat Villa and retain FA Cup

This weekend will see the oldest competition in association football contested as Arsenal and Aston Villa play the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium.

Few matches in club football carry more glamour, history and excitement but that hasn’t stopped Ladbrokes adding to the sense of occasion with another timely Price Boost.

New customers can now get a whopping 4/1* – up from 4/7 –  on Arsenal to beat Aston Villa in 90 minutes and retain the title they won against Hull last year.

Villa are the 11/2 outsiders for victory and while new manager Tim Sherwood steered the Villans to survival, a cup final win over the Gunners could prove a step too far.

Last times the two sides met, in February this year, the Emirates outfit ran out 5-0 winners with Olivier Giroud, Mesut ozil and Theo Walcott among the scorers.

That followed a 3-1 victory for the gunners earlier in the season to taking Arsene Wenger’s record run against the Midlands club to just one defeat in nine meetings.

And, while Arsenal are not exactly at home, the Gunners will be boosted by the fact Aston Villa rarely play well in the capital.

The Villans have won just two of their last 11 visits to London, losing seven of those games.

Conversely, Arsenal have lost just three of their last 25 games, home or away, inside the confines of the M25.

So with the Gunners boasting city advantage and a dominance over Villa an Arsenal win is too good to pass up at this huge price!
