-Doyinsola Johnson

After an intense final, Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1 for their 14th FA cup trophy, which is the most a team has ever won the cup.

Chealsea took the lead inside five minutes through Christian Pulisic’s smart finish but then fell victim to the brilliance of Aubameyang, who was also Arsenal’s hero when he scored twice in the semi-final win over Manchester City.

Chelsea’s side were weakened by a first-half injury to Azpilicueta and were struggling even further when they lost the outstanding Pulisic to a hamstring problem after the break.

As the Blues tried to overcome those setbacks, the brilliance of Aubameyang was able to grant Mikel Arteta silverware in his first season as the Gunners’ manager.

As Chelsea’s were ustrated their agony increased further when Mateo Kovacic was very harshly sent off for a second yellow card, awarded by referee Anthony Taylor for the most innocuous of challenges on Granit Xhaka.

Arsenal closed out the win to secure a place in the Europa League next season but it was bitter disappointment for Chelsea manager Frank Lampard at the conclusion of his first campaign in charge.
