Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fires Arsenal to FA Cup glory over 10-man Chelsea

Wembley Stadium, FA Cup final – Arsenal 2 (Aubameyang 28′ pen. 67′) Chelsea 1 (Pulisic 5′)

A double from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang secured Arsenal European football for next season, steering the Gunners to a record 14th FA Cup triumph after a 2-1 victory over 10-man Chelsea in the final at Wembley.

Chelsea started the game in the ascendency, with Christian Pulisic becoming the first American to score in a FA Cup final when brilliantly giving Chelsea the lead with just six minutes on the clock.

After the first-half drinks break, Arsenal looked like a different side, and got themselves level from the penalty spot, with Aubameyang winning the penalty before getting up to slot home his 29th goal of the season.

The goal that won the contest was worthy of the grandest of stages, with Aubameyang brilliantly skipping past Kurt Zouma before clipping a lovely finish into the net in the 67th minute, with Mateo Kovacic’s somewhat controversial red card making Arsenal’s task of seeing out the earning of Mikel Arteta’s first silverware all the easier.
