MATCH TIMELINE

Saturday, 19 April 1913

ON THIS DAY

Villa and Sunderland contest the FA Cup final with Villa victorious for the fifth time in a match notable for two reasons.

This was the first time that the top two League teams would face off in the final - with the eventual champions not to be settled until the next set of fixtures - and this was the most bad tempered final that football had seen as a thuggish Sunderland side betrayed their quality with questionable tactics.

Both teams would meet the following week in a title decider perhaps hoping for a reaction to their advantage.
