Can Arsenal retain the FA Cup?


Gedion Zelalem happy to finally be part of U.S. national team

The U-23 United States Men's National Team speak ahead of their match against the France U-23 side in the 2015 Toulon Tournament.
Gedion Zelalem has been at Arsenal for two years, and the U.S. hopes that his technical skill will be an asset on the national team.

Arsenal should add to their brilliant FA Cup final record with another win

The Exploding Heads reveal everything you need to know ahead of Saturday's FA Cup final between Arsenal and Aston Villa.

Arsenal's FA Cup final with Aston Villa is potentially record-breaking for two separate reasons.

First and foremost, Arsenal could become the first team to win the FA Cup for the 12th time, moving ahead of Manchester United to become the outright leaders.

Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger is also seeking to make history. A sixth FA Cup winners' medal would be a joint record for a manager; he'd go level with George Ramsay, who coached Villa for an incredible 42-year spell in the late 19th and early 20th...
