Arsenal beats Chelsea to win third FA Cup in 4 seasons

Ramsey did not touch the ball, allowing Sanchez to run through and slot in.

Ozil went desperately close to a second when released into the box in the 16th minute, chipping a delicate finish over the approaching Thibaut Courtois, but Gary Cahill was there to clear off the line.

The Chelsea winger, who has been a revelation playing as an attacking full-back this season, was sent off after 68 minutes, receiving his second yellow card for a dive in the Arsenal penalty area. The Welshman had also scored the winning goal in the 2014 cup final against Hull.

"Our season was incredible to win the league in this way, it was great but now its important to look forward and to restart". Wenger has been at the helm for six of those triumphs and one more would see the Frenchman on his own with seven wins, surpassing the six won by Aston Villa manager George Ramsay between 1887 and 1920.

Asked if delivering the FA Cup would be a ideal way to say goodbye having been at the club almost 21 years, Wenger replied: "There is no flawless way".

"One of the big problems in the modern society is that the big companies sit there not any more to make the decisions that are good for the company but is it popular or not?"


The Arsenal pressure was relentless, but they could not find a second goal.

Arsenal defender Rob Holding had a fantastic semi-final too and he was under the spotlight, as was Per Mertesacker.

Colombia worldwide Ospina has been Arsenal's regular cup goalkeeper since Cech joined from Stamford Bridge at the start of last season, but missed the semi-final win over Manchester City due to a back injury. "My players put all of themselves into the game".

Arsenal. Chelsea. Two names that embody the idea of British soccer.

Costa then equalised for Chelsea with 14 minutes to go, seemingly putting the Premier League champions into the driving seat, but Ramsey popped up shortly after to deflate their counterparts and Arsenal held on to lift the trophy.

In the first half alone he made a handful of crucial interceptions and won countless headers to blunt the physical presence of Chelsea striker Diego Costa.
