The empty seats of the Wembley Stadium saw a dramatic final where Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal Gunned down Frank Lampard’s Blues.
Gunners were down to 1-0 when Christian Pulisic found a way back to the next against Emiliano Martinez but the gunners revived themselves when they were awarded a 27th minute penalty and the Gabonese target man made no mistake in getting the job done for the North London side that bought them to level terms.
Both the teams went into half time with the scores being at level 1-1. Gunners were pushing themselves forward and looked very determined to hand Mikel Arteta his first silverware at the Emirates and it was again the Skipper Aubamayeng for Arsenal who scored his second and bought the gunners back into the lead.
Chelsea were then down to 10 men when Mateo Kovačić was sent off on getting his 2nd yellow and injuries played their part too as Cesar Azpilicueta, Pulisic and Pedro had to leave the pitch and that helped Arsenal defeat Chelsea in a thrilling North-West London Derby.
Arsenal no. 14 made sure the gunners lift their 14th FA Cup title and became the most successful team in the tournament’s history. A contract renewal for the Gabonese Striker could be on the cards as Arsenal look forward to the next season.
Dropping trophies immediately after winning them has become a hot trend in football and the post match Trophy presentation saw the Arsenal Captain joining the latest trend.
