Aubameyang scores twice as Arsenal win 14th FA Cup

28

Arsenal have secured an astonishing 14th FA Cup triumph after they came from a goal down to beat city rivals Chelsea 2-1 on Saturday at the Wembley Stadium.

Christian Pulisic had given the Blues a dream start; scoring in the fifth minute but Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got the equaliser from the penalty spot before adding another sumptuous goal in the second half to seal the victory for the Gunners.

This is the third time Arsenal and Chelsea have faced each other in the FA Cup final, with the Gunners winning the previous two (in 2002 and 2017) and they have now completed a hat trick.

History never favoured Chelsea going into Saturday’s final as they have won just one of their last 13 FA Cup games against Arsenal, beating them 2-1 in the 2009 semi-final, courtesy of goals from Florent Malouda and Didier Drogba.
