Arsenal have won the FA Cup for the 14th time in club history. In a London derby against Chelsea, the Gunners cleared an early deficit. Thanks to the overall victory, Arsenal can go to the group stage of the Europa League.

Arsenal had missed the European tickets in the Premier League and therefore had to win the FA Cup to be allowed to go to the Europa League. However, the final couldn’t get worse for the Gunners. Pulisic poked the 0-1 for Chelsea after 5 minutes.

The lead gave coach Lampard’s team wings and Chelsea took control of the match. Only after the drinking break halfway through the 1st half could Arsenal put his foot next to the opponent.

A rejected goal by Pépé was already a first warning, not much later Aubameyang took a penalty after a foul by Azpilicueta. More disaster followed quickly for the Spaniard, who had to go to the side before half-time with a hamstring injury.

Pulisic’s 0-1:

And Aubameyang’s striking penalty:

Chelsea feels the match slip away

Early in the 2nd half, Chelsea again suffered a blow. The industrious Pulisic also felt his hamstrings snap after a sprint. Without the flashy American, Chelsea suddenly had a lot harder to create danger.

Arsenal looked the cat out of the tree and struck mercilessly 20 minutes before time. Outstanding Aubameyang put Zouma in the wind with a great drag and then coolly dropped the ball past a hopeless Caballero.

As if that was not enough misery for Chelsea, it also lost midfielder Kovacic with a second yellow card. With a man more, Arsenal could easily control the match.

In the final minute, incidentally, there was another damper for Chelsea, when the retiring Pedro still suffered an apparent serious shoulder injury.

For FA Cup record holder Arsenal, it is the 14th overall victory in the prestigious cup tournament. The Gunners also save their season, because thanks to the cup win they grab a ticket for the group stage of the Europa League.

Aubameyang decides the game:

  1. second half, minute 104. Arsenal wins. The final whistle sounds in Wembley: Arsenal wins the FA Cup and takes the coveted ticket to the Europa League group stage. .
  2. second half, minute 103. For what it is still worth: Kolasinac can also show up as a replacement for Tierney. .
  3. second half, minute 103. Substitution at Arsenal, Sead Kolašinac in, Kieran Tierney out
  4. second half, minute 100. Injury to Pedro. Pedro also hurt himself a lot during that action. It seems that the Spaniard suffered a serious shoulder injury in his very last minutes for Chelsea. .
  5. second half, minute 96. Substitute Pedro tries to find another hole and dives into the box at full speed. The Spaniard makes the fall jump too far from his foot: no chance. .
  6. second half, minute 94. Is there anything left for Chelsea? James tries to force something by throwing the ball into the box, but the air duel is won by the Arsenal-defense. .
  7. second half, minute 91. Extra time. It is a bit of nail biting for the Arsenal fans, because 7 minutes are added. One more thing to remember: Arsenal can go to the group stage of the Europa League with a win, without the FA Cup no European football for the Gunners. .
  8. Yellow card to Chelsea’s Ross Barkley in the second half, minute 89
  9. second half, minute 88. Substitution at Arsenal, Sokratis Papastathopoulos in, David Luiz out
  10. second half, minute 86. David Luiz to the side. The match now also seems to be taking its toll on David Luiz. The Brazilian has remained seated, his match seems to be over. Papastathopoulos – cheating anyway – will replace him. His sweater features his first name Sokratis. Let’s stick to that too. .
