Arsenal, Chelsea clash in all-London FA Cup final


The speed of Arsenal's start surprised us all - they went at Chelsea from the off and never let up.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey scored the all-important winning goal as the Gunners picked up the FA Cup against Chelsea on Saturday.

Chelsea were starting to find a way back into the contest and, even though they hit back when down to 10 men, the red card for wing-back Victor Moses hampered their efforts.

He is yet to announce whether he will stay on as manager next season.

Wenger's future remains up in the air, with his contract set to expire and a board meeting planned on Tuesday, but Ramsey is hoping an agreement can be reached for the 67-year-old to sign a new deal.

On the other hand, James acknowledged before Game 5 that topping Jordan's overall legacy is "a personal goal of mine". It wasn't until Pacquiao aged and lost a step that Mayweather finally came to terms with the long-overdue bout.


Whatever the future holds for Wenger, he said the current Arsenal team can look forward with optimism.

Arsène Wenger described winning his seventh FA Cup as one of the proudest moments of his career because of the criticism he faced this season, before going on to criticise some of the supporters who would like him removed for creating a hostile environment in matches.

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

Yet there are still a minority of fans that think Wenger should leave the club, simply because he has finished 5th for the first time in 21 years. While they have constantly criticised Wenger and what the team have done in both the Premier League and the Champions League, he has continued to mastermind domestic glory with the FA Cup.

"I meet so many people who love this club and share the passion for this club", he said. I just want to do well for this club.

The Palestinian leadership "informed the American administration of the details of the strike beginning the first day", he said. The Samaria Regional Council said it was the third day straight that Palestinians had been rioting in the area.


Arsenal had an opportunity in this match.

"They showed strength and unity", Wenger said, "and we played spectacular football again". If you are a fan you should support your team. That's what I didn't accept through the season.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte could not secure a double in his first season in charge at Stamford Bridge and singled out Ramsey's goal and the dismissal of Moses as the turning points.

This will be the second FA Cup final contested between Arsenal and Chelsea.

Chelsea started the second half with more tempo and Footballer of the Year N'Golo Kante warmed Ospina's fingers with a deflected drive from distance before Moses brought a fine save from Ospina after Costa played him in. Moses darted into the right side of the Arsenal area and appeared to dive, with the referee subsequently dismissing the Nigeria worldwide for a second yellow card. Then we conceded after one minute and it was the key moment for our loss. "I think we were unlucky". "We paid for this start".
