Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger certainly got his tactics right on FA Cup Final day as the veteran Frenchman produced a performance and a half from his considerably under strength side to beat the English Champions Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley.

Arsenal restored some much needed pride to end what had so far been a rather dismal season for the Gunners, beating Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley, to win the FA Cup for the 13th time in their history and for the 7th time under the reign of Arsene Wenger, making the under pressure Frenchman the most successful Manager in the history of the world's oldest football competition.

Arsenal were more than a little fortunate to be awarded an early goal, but were clearly the better side over the course of the 90 minutes and in addition to grabbing their 2 goals also hit the woodwork three times. Chelsea were slow and lethargic in the first half, and despite playing much better in the second half, saw their efforts to get back in the game damaged by some poor decision making from Victor Moses, whose attempt to con the Referee into awarding Chelsea a penalty saw the Nigerian earn a second yellow which earned him an early bath.
