Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang produced a moment of magic to give Arsenal their 14th FA Cup triumph in a dramatic 2-1 Wembley win over 10-man Chelsea.
The striker, whose future with the Gunners remains uncertain, slotted in a first-half penalty to cancel out Christian Pulisic’s opener, before firing home a classy match-winning strike in the 67th minute.
It meant the battle of the rookie bosses was won by Mikel Arteta, with Frank Lampard’s Chelsea ending the game a man down following a red card for Mateo Kovacic.
Arsenal’s success means they earn a place in next season’s Europa League, having finished a disappointing eighth in the Premier League.
Chelsea also lost Pulisic, Cesar Azpilicueta and Pedro to injury ahead of their Champions League encounter with Bayern Munich next weekend.
