Arsenal end season of frustration with FA Cup glory

Twitter

However, Arsene Wenger's side won thanks to goals from Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey, and the Arsenal manager set a record.

When Alexis Sanchez put the ball in the net after four minutes, it was initially disallowed when Aaron Ramsey was adjudged to be interfering with play while offside.

It didn't hold Antonio Conte's men down as they drew level in the 77th minute when Diego Costa's effort deflected off Per Mertesacker and past David Ospina - although the Colombian global will feel he should have done better.

Aaron Ramsey scored the victor after Alexis Sanchez controversial opener was cancelled out by Diego Costa with the Blues already one man down at the time.

There were additional bag checks going into Wembley, with long lines forming from three hours before the showpiece fixture toward the end of the English soccer season.

Delivering the FA Cup three times in four seasons has papered over some of the cracks as Arsenal has repeatedly come up short in the Premier League and Europe.

They have now won it a record 13 times while manager Arsene Wenger, who is yet to say whether he will be extending his 21-year reign, is now the most successful manager in the history of the competition with seven wins. "If he doesn't run to the ball, I can go out and claim the ball but now because he runs I stop and then Sanchez takes advantage".


And with the match winding down, Costa somehow failed to beat Ospina after being set up by Hazard in the box while Ozil smashed against a post for the final real chance of this epic FA Cup final.

Antonio Conte addresses Arsenal's controversial goal in the FA Cup final, which he feels shouldn't have stood.

N'Golo Kante's deflected strike was followed by Mertesacker denying Costa and Moses forcing Ospina into a save as Chelsea turned the screw. They played the better football and wanted it more.

But the wounded Gunners used that blow to their pride as fuel for a dominant performance that proved too much for Premier League champions Chelsea.

It was the right decision, but certainly not an easy one to make.

But Chelsea's players did not take to the field wearing black armbands as arranged, after the FA Cup jackets they wore coming out of the tunnel were placed on top of them in the Wembley dressing room.

Pedro had a shot which inched past the Arsenal right post after good set-up play by Moses on the right.
