Ramsey Wins FA Cup For Gunners

Arsenal celebrated a record 13th FA Cup success as Aaron Ramsey once again grabbed the victor at Wembley, securing a 2-1 victory over 10-man Chelsea and potentially going some way to restoring supporters' faith in the under-fire Arsene Wenger.

"I don't think I can answer that question", Wenger said, "at the moment".

Conte, who led Juventus to three straight Serie A titles before coaching the Italian national side and then moving to London past year, heaped praise on his players for their dominance of the English league this season after a miserable 2015/16 campaign when they finished 10th.

Kick-off. The teams are back out for the second half and we're underway, with no substitutions for either side.

But the season has ended with a run of six victories in May after Wenger adopted the three-man defense that has served Conte so well, until now.

"It was a great team performance", striker Danny Welbeck, who has been sidelined twice with knee injuries at Arsenal, told the BBC.

There was better luck, too.

Sanchez put Arsenal up with a goal that could have been called back for a number of reasons-most notably the fact that Aaron Ramsey was offside and made a move towards the ball, despite not actually making contact.

After Sanchez scored, confusion reigned for 40 seconds as referee Anthony Taylor went to speak to the linesman before awarding the goal - seemingly unaware of Sanchez's handball in the build-up.

It got more hard for Chelsea as Victor Moses was sent off for a second yellow card in the second half, just as Chelsea had shown intent in pressing for an equaliser.

Although Diego Costa equalized in the 76th, bringing down Willian's lofted ball on his chest and striking past David Ospina, Arsenal was back in front inside three minutes.

But Arsenal continued to threaten on the break, Hector Bellerin working Courtois with a firm, low shot, and in the 68th minute the momentum tilted yet further in their direction.

Ramsey was left unmarked to meet Olivier Giroud's dinked pass by N'Golo Kante, who uncharacteristically failed to track the midfielder. Revitalized after the 10th-place league finish in 2016, Chelsea lifted the biggest prize in English football last week after winning 30 of the 38 games.

"Arsenal started very well with great determination". We have got the FA Cup again.
