Ex-Aston Villa boss Little: They can win FA Cup

Former Aston Villa boss Brian Little believes they're capable of winning the FA Cup.

Villa meet Arsenal next Saturday at Wembley.

Little told the Daily Star Sunday: "I was very impressed with the attacking midfield trio in the semi-final win over Liverpool.

"Jack Grealish was outstanding, Fabian Delph is always looked on as a good player while Tom Cleverley was fantastic.

"It seemed that someone had told Cleverley to take his straitjacket off and go and play - and he certainly showed people what he can do.

"Of course, though, Arsenal have terrific players and will be favourites. Arsene Wenger will play his best team because he will be desperate to win the cup. They are in the final and justifiably so.

"They have been playing really well since Sherwood took charge with a far more positive approach.

"There will be a lot of optimism in the Villa camp that they can pull it off and no one will be happier than me if they do."
