(AP) -- With Champions League and Premier League titles still seemingly way beyond the team, Arsenal is again relying on an FA Cup triumph to salvage some silverware from its season.

For the second straight year, Arsenal heads into the final of the world's oldest club competition as the big favorite against a team that has ended the season fighting against relegation from the Premier League.

In 2014, it was Hull. On Saturday, Aston Villa will provide the opposition at Wembley Stadium - and the pressure on Arsenal will be nowhere near as intense as 12 months ago.
