Arsenal wins FA Cup for a record 13th time after beating Chelsea

Watch on as Arsenal lift their 13th FA Cup trophy, as Aaron Ramsey's late goal proved to be the decisive goal vs. Chelsea.

However, referee Anthony Taylor over-ruled his assistant, who had flagged for offside, and allowed the goal to stand.

The Gunners finished fifth in the Premier League, the first time under Wenger's tenure that Arsenal have failed to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League.

Removing the record seventh FA Cup winner's medal from his pocket, Arsene Wenger was gratified and yet apprehensive.

That should have given Arsenal the boost they needed to kill off the game, but in the FA Cup, and with Arsenal things are never so simple.

Aaron Ramsey, who bagged the victor of rArsenal in their FA Cup win over Chelsea today, threw his support behind his current boss to put pen to paper on a new deal. Apart from that, after that it's down to the board members to decide if I'm the right man to take this club further, and for me to decide whether I am the right man to take this club further.

"It is not about popularity, it is about confidence".

"I believe that it is a positive trend but it would be a bit ridiculous that 20 years depends on one game and that the future of the club depends on one game. To get another FA Cup, I'm delighted".

"I'm very proud, if nobody has done it since 18-god knows-when it means it is not easy".

Wenger, who complained before the game about a "disgraceful lack of respect" over his achievements, has never been under fire as intensely as he has this season.

The glitch is believed to have been caused by a "power supply issue" and there is no evidence of a cyber attack, the airline said. The airline had issues with its online check-in systems in September and July past year , causing severe delays for passengers.

Arsenal probably got a lucky break with the Sanchez goal, which might have been disallowed on two counts.

So, the Chelsea manager will have to be satisfied with only one title in his first season in English soccer.

The team made a dream start, taking the lead in four minutes through Alexis after he raced on to a ball that deflected off him and beat Thibaut Courtois.

"Two weeks ago I was on holiday - I didn't expect to play", Mertesacker said.

Antonio Conte fell short in his bid to emulate Italian countryman Carlo Ancelotti by leading Chelsea to a Premier League and FA Cup Double in his first season as manager.

"The first goal was very unusual, but in the first half we didn't start well". In the second half in our best moment the referee chose to give a red card.

He returned to fitness in early 2017 but could not find a way into the side, with his only appearance coming as a substitute in the final league game of the season against Everton following Laurent Koscielny's red card and an injury to Gabriel.

"We won the league". "They started better than us".

But even though Arsenal held every advantage, the match wasn't over. "I hope Arsenal supporters will now respect him NOW".
