David Seaman won four FA Cups in his 13-year spell at Highbury and the former England goalkeeper expects Arsenal to beat Wigan and then lift the trophy on May 17.
It has been an astonishing 3246 days since Arsene Wenger's side won their last piece of silverware. This was the famous English cup in 2005 and Seaman thinks they can break their much publicised duck.
"I really believe this could be the year when they win their first trophy in nine years and I also qualify for the Champions League," he told the Metro.
Following the disappointing 3-0 defeat at Goodison Park, fourth place is now in Everton's hands, as they are a point behind Arsenal after playing one game less.
The 2004 league winners have been able to make the Champions League with a late improvement of results in previous seasons, which prevented Tottenham making the top four in 2012/13.
And Seaman predicts a motivated Arsenal will be motivated at Wembley.
"Once they do win that silverware it will relieve a lot of pressure and tension. Arsenal will be determined to go out there and shut up the critics," he added.
Wenger remains a manager under fierce scrutiny, despite having seen his side lead the Premier League for much of the year.
The Gunners' hopes of a first league title in ten years have surely gone, but they have a fabulous chance of winning their first competition since moving to the Emirates.
