Arsenal Beat Chelsea To Win FA Cup

Ramsey stooped to head home a sublime Olivier Giroud centre to give Wenger his seventh FA Cup success and ensure Arsenal won the competition for a record 13th time. The Gunners triumphed, making it three out of the last four and a record thirteen overall.

But it is the losers who still head in the offseason the most buoyant.

Wenger's future had become such a political football that Arsenal's third FA Cup final in four years threatened to become a 90-minute wait for a final answer on whether the Wengerocracy was over.

You have to hand it to Arsenal.

Mertesacker was everywhere at once.

Arsenal, though, were back in front two minutes later. Whenever the Blues got the ball into the box, he was there. All the time. Every single second. Cahill stopped Danny Welbeck, Alexis Sanchez from scoring.

Arsenal's outstanding player shone once again at Wembley.

"You can't have 35 years at the top level if you're not the right man to do the job", Wenger said.

In the end Alexis got subbed with two minutes left to a standing ovation from Gunners fans.

And maybe his last night managing an Arsenal team?

Conte said it wasn't easy for his players to lift themselves for the match.

He fields a full-strength side with Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Pedro starting in a risky trident against a weakened Arsenal defence.

"We didn't have many injuries".

Oh dear oh dear oh dear.

"But when the game starts you support your team". The players make a mistake, the referee makes a mistake. Ok sure, take a dive.

Asked about the decision to show Moses a second yellow card, Conte said, "For me now it's very hard to tell because I saw contact with Moses and their player but I don't know if it was a penalty or not". Man for man, they were much better than Chelsea.

"The first half we didn't start well, we didn't have the right approach and we suffered in first 25 minutes", Conte told the BBC. But in that final, his side were uncharacteristically poor, well, for Chelsea anyway.

"I've never won an FA Cup, so I had a lot of hunger to win it", Courtois added.

Moreover, when he had to make his subs, Conte's decisions were too late and not good enough.

N'Golo Kante's deflected strike was followed by Mertesacker denying Costa and Moses forcing Ospina into a save as Chelsea turned the screw.

Well they all look a bit silly now, don't they? "They showed strength and unity and played spectacular football today".

Saving their best for last, Alexis Sanchez put Arsenal ahead with a controversial early opener and even when Diego Costa equalised for Chelsea late in the second half, Wenger's men had the ideal response as Aaron Ramsey bagged the victor moments later.

"I try to serve this club with always the same commitment and quality".
