Armed police guarding FA Cup final after Manchester bomb

AARON RAMSEY has made it very clear he wants Arsene Wenger to stay at Arsenal following the Gunners' FA Cup final victory over Chelsea.

Conte has the chance to become only the second manager to win the double in his first season in charge at a club, following Kenny Dalglish, who achieved the same feat in 1986 at Liverpool.

Arsenal, plagued by defensive selection issues, claimed a third FA Cup win in four seasons and 13th in total, making them the outright most successful team in the competition's history ahead of Manchester United.

Chelsea's afternoon got even worse in the second half when Victor Moses was sent off for a dive inside Arsenal's area.

So, just who has been selected for the match?


Wenger celebrates at the final whistle.

Sanchez's goal was initially ruled out as Aaron Ramsey was caught in an offside position but the decision was overruled - despite replays showing the ball striking the Chilean's hand.

Arsène Wenger has claimed that his future as Arsenal manager will be decided later this week.

With Laurent Koscielny, Gabriel and Shkodran Mustafi out of the backline, the 32-year-old lined up in the back three alongside Rob Holding and Nacho Monreal.

But Arsenal continued to threaten on the break, Hector Bellerin working Courtois with a firm, low shot, and in the 68th minute the momentum tilted yet further in their direction. "I'm especially proud of the way we won this season because in the semi-final we had to play against Man City here, in the final against Chelsea here, and you can not get tougher and we had two outstanding performances so this cup was won with a special spirit and special attitude", he said.
