Forward Theo Walcott scored to give Arsenal a 1–0 lead over Aston Villa in Saturday's FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium. 

Walcott, who got the start up front for the Gunners over Olivier Giroud, scored five minutes before halftime at the 40 minute mark. Arsenal is looking to capture its second straight FA Cup trophy with a win on Saturday.

The goal came after Nacho Monreal crossed the ball into the box and Alexis Sanchez headed it back to Walcott, who buried it past Aston Villa goalie Shay Given.
