Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey picked up yet another FA Cup winners medal, and once again produced the decisive touch in a Final, following up his match-winner against Hull City in 2014 with a rare headed goal to win the Gunners the title against Chelsea at Wembley this afternoon.

Ramsey ghosted into the Chelsea box, getting free of the attentions of the Premier League's player of the season, N'Golo Kante, and nodded home a free header from point blank range after having been found perfectly by Olivier Giroud's cross just 38 seconds after the Frenchman was thrown on for Danny Welbeck after Diego Costa had brought 10-man Chelsea back on level terms.

And Ramsey was effusive in his praise of his Manager Arsene Wenger, whose future with the team continues to be up in the air. Speaking about Wenger, Ramsey said, "I’m happy for the manger, I’m delighted. He’s been fantastic for me, fantastic for these players. Fair play to him, he’s changed the system and it’s paid off. So hopefully he’ll be here next season, because we owe him a lot.”

Wenger did share about his own future, “We have a board meeting on Tuesday, and all will be clear on Wednesday or Thursday.”

Back to Ramsey though, and the Welshman added about the importance of this win, “It’s been an up-and-down season, but to finish it with an FA Cup has to make it a successful one. I just love this competition. The boys deserve it."

 

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.

Speaking after his side's memorable win, Wenger said, “It was an outstanding performance from the first minute onwards. This team has suffered, united, and responded. I said last week this team will win the championship with one or two good buys, and keep them together. They showed strength and we played spectacular football today to win the game."

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.
