Adjust Comment Print

This will be the second FA Cup final contested between Arsenal and Chelsea.

Removing the record seventh FA Cup winner's medal from his pocket, Arsene Wenger was gratified and yet apprehensive. If we have this in the same proportion as Arsenal in that respect, we have the possibility to do the double and win.

The Wales global midfielder started the tie and played for the entire 90 minutes, as the Gunners registered a 2-1 victory over their Premier League rivals. "They've united and responded", he told BBC Sport.

Wenger finally gave full vent to his feelings about the criticism he received this season in the Wembley build-up - describing it as "a disgrace" he will "never forget".

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he will undergo talks over his future at a board meeting scheduled for Tuesday.

"I think we had an outstanding performance from the first minute onwards", Wenger said after Arsenal's record 13th success in the competition. It's not my target.Just as the season reached its climax, Arsenal turned in the type of tenacious display lacking so often, and against a side so commanding in the Premier League in Antonio Conte's first season in charge.

The awkwardness may stem from Trump's tacit support of Macron's rival Marine Le Pen during the French election. According to the official, Trump told Macron "you were my guy" in the election when the two met Thursday.

Chelsea didn't turn up and they simply weren't good enough against a determined Arsenal side. Chelsea was in shambles last season under Jose Mourinho, with the Blues finishing 10th in the Premier League.

Prince William laid one of four wreaths and, while Chelsea players accidentally left their black armbands behind for the first half, it was another fitting occasion where sport marked the recent tragedy.

"Of course I want him to stay at club", he said.

David Ospina denied Costa with a save off his face before Cahill was forced to clear off the line for the second time, as from the counter attack, Hector Bellerin fed Welbeck, who saw his deflected shot beat the Chelsea goalkeeper but not Cahill.

"Next season, for sure, we must pay great attention, great attention to understand that we have to improve and in the number in the squad and also in the quality", he said. I'm happy for the manager. "That's why I will play special tribute to him". "The second yellow card for Moses was for sure one of the two key moments".

But I don't know whether this latest triumph affects the decision about whether he will leave the club this summer or sign a new contract.
