Arsenal Defeat Chelsea To Win 14th FA Cup Title

After a very turbulent season of slumps and record lows, Arsenal have emerged FA Cup Champions and made an almost evading European place as they qualified for the Europa League.

The Gunners, coming from a shocking 2-0 win over Manchester City in the FA Cup Semi finals squared up against the Chelsea at an empty Wembley Stadium, hoping to have manager Mikel Arteta earn a big win again.

Both teams and fans watching from home were treated to an opening music by Emelie Sander on the rooftop of the Wembley Stadium in capital city, London.

Chelsea drew the first blood on the 6th minute through American, Christian Pulisic after a very dominating beginning against their London foes.

Arsenal soon got more settled in the game, dominating possession and getting more of the ball.

A sumptuous Pepe finish was ruled out for offside earlier for the Gunners after Lacazette was deemed to be in an offside position.

The Gunners soon got a penalty after a tussle between Aubameyang and Azpilicueta resulted in the Spaniard tugging the Gabonese Arsenal Captain to the ground. Aubameyang, who has been the subject of contract talks at Arsenal stepped up to take the resultant penalty, to give Arsenal the equaliser.

Chelsea failed to build into the game thereafter, as they picked up needless yellow cards, and made mistakes at the back. Aubameyang scored a much deserved second on the 67th minute after a deep run from Hector Bellerin saw the attacker slotting the final ball behind Willy Caballero.

A controversial red card to Matteo Kovacic in the 73rd minute ensured the game was all lost for Chelsea as it got more difficult to get back in the game.

Arsenal have now won 14 FA Cup titles, more than any other team in England.
