Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1 to win record 13th FA Cup

Vera Richards | 28 May, 2017, 01:38

In the Semi-finals at Wembley Stadium, Chelsea were drawn against fellow Premier League and London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsene Wenger reiterated that his future will be decided in the coming days after guiding Arsenal to a record-breaking FA Cup win.

Chelsea manager Conte hopes to emulate his Italian compatriot Carlo Ancelotti's feat from the 2009-10 campaign by steering Chelsea to a league and FA Cup Double in his first season at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal are looking to win a third FA Cup in four years after triumphing over Hull City in 2014 and Aston Villa in 2015 We look back at some of the best skills, flicks and tricks from the 2016/17 Premier League season Antonio Conte guided Chelsea to a fifth Premier League after winning 30 out of 38 games in the top-flight What is the latest team news for Arsenal?

Former Germany global Mertesacker said "not bad is it?" when asked about his manager's achievements.

It was hard to recall the last time Arsenal played quite this well, so in tune with Wenger's vision. It would have also been a ideal way for the Blues to wrap up their season, as it was a 3-0 loss to Arsenal in September that that focused Chelsea to adapt their strategy early on in the Premiership. "Hopefully, he'll be there next season".

For once, this was a day when so much went right for Wenger, even with a patched-up injury-depleted defense featuring captain Per Mertesacker making his first start in more than a year. And after failing to guide the club to a Champions League place for the first time since he took over, he can expect things to get a lot worse.

23 million more uninsured with GOP health bill, analysts say
Some senators have suggested their preference to write a new bill, rather than working to amend the American Health Care Act . The report could give talking points to House Republicans for their bill, or to Democrats who voted unanimously against it.

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.

That lead held up until well into the second half, and Chelsea's situation became even more dire after Nigerian winger Victor Moses was sent off in the 68th minute for diving.

When Alexis Sanchez put the ball in the net after four minutes, it appeared to be initially disallowed because Ramsey was adjudged to be interfering with play while offside.

Confusion reigned for 40 seconds as referee Anthony Taylor went to speak to the linesman and awarding the goal - seemingly unaware of the Chilean's handball in the build-up.

But Arsenal struck back nearly immediately.

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.

He is reported to have been offered a two-year contract and while dissent against him has mounted this season, the stirring nature of his side's win will surely have won back some of his team's disgruntled fans.
