Arsenal Defeat Aston Villa 4-0 To Win FA Cup

Arsenal have lifted the English FA Cup after cruising to a decisive 4-0 victory over Aston Villa at Wembley.

 The Gunners have now won the trophy a record 12 times and manager Arsene Wenger has been in charge for half of them. Villa had made the 115-mile journey to the capital looking to win the FA Cup for the first time since 1957, but instead saw the London side coast to the biggest final win in 21 years.
