JUST IN: Arsenal beat Chelsea to win FA Cup

Published

Arsenal has beaten London rivals Chelsea to become FA Cup champions today, earning ourselves entry to the Europa League.

The Gunners started the game very much on the back foot, with the Blues pushing forward with force, and even took a reasonably early lead thanks to Christian Pulisic.

A clearance deflected into the path of Olivier Giroud, who cleverly found team-mate Pulisic to open the scoring, but from that point onwards, the match turned.

Mikel Arteta’s side really reacted to the goal in emphatic fashion, and that pressure resulted in us getting a penalty to level the scoring, with Cesar Azpilicueta pulling Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to the floor inside the box to give away a clear penalty.

The Gabonese striker had no hesitation in putting the ball away, sending Willy Caballero the wrong way, and we continued to push on from there.

Arsenal was the best side for the last hour of the match, continually turning the screw in on our rivals, and that man Aubameyang was the man to put us in front also.

PEA lost his man to pass the last defender to give himself one-on-one with Willy, to chip it over the goalkeeper and into the open net.

Not long after taking the lead, we get a fortunate advantage over our rivals with the referee giving a second yellow card to Matteo Kovacic which allows us to see out the game a man up, but upon reviewing the replays, you can’t help but think that the second bookable offense, wasn’t so bookable…

You can’t blame us for enjoying the win, and the fact that we were already on top, as well as winning the match, can leave those disgruntled Chelsea fans firmly in their place.

The best team won, and the best team will now be playing in Europe.

Arsenal is the DESERVED CHAMPIONS, and there is no doubt that the future is bright.

Sancho’s wages are also a sticking point, with United determined not to upset their wage structure for a player so young.

“Ever since the ‘cadete’ team (around the age of 16), I had offers to leave Barca, some of them from England.

“And even when I was at Barca B, I had offers from LaLiga teams and I always said ‘no’ because I wanted to get to the first team.

“Later, I had opportunities and I think I took advantage of them as much as I could. In fact, I even earned a contract as a player in the first team.”
