Arsenal won today the 14th FA Cup of football in their history, after beating Chelsea 2-1, with two goals from Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, in a final where they were at a disadvantage.
In the mythical Wembley Stadium, totally 'stripped' of supporters, the American Pulisic gave Chelsea an advantage in the fifth minute, but the London derby would end up being forgotten by Frank Lampard's team, with the blues 'looking to win the title for the ninth time.
Without the Portuguese Cedric Soares, prevented from acting due to having represented Southampton in this season's competition, Arsenal rested the equality even in the first half, with Aubameyang successfully converting a penalty on 28 minutes, and the Gabonese striker even starred the turnaround, at 67, with an excellent individual move already within the area.
At the time of the 'somersault' on the scoreboard, Chelsea had already lost Azpilicueta and Pulisic to injury and, shortly after, in the 73rd minute, Croatian Kovacic was sent off with a double yellow card.
Until the end, Arsenal kept control of the match, while Chelsea, already in the discounts, was reduced to nine elements, due to Pedro's injury, at a time when the ‘blues’ had already exhausted the substitutions.
Arsenal lifted their 14th FA Cup, the first since 2016/17, and reinforced their record-breaking status in the oldest club competition in football history.
With this triumph, Arsenal also secured a place in the Europa League next season, since in the championship it did not go beyond eighth place, and ‘stole’ this possibility from Nuno Espírito Santo’s Wolverhampton, seventh in the Premier League.
