According to the club's official website, arsenal.com commentary on the win, Arsenal had great chance which they converted into win. Victory for the Mikel Arteta side as he enjoys his first title as the head coach.


Commentary by Digital media:

"We extended our remarkable record in the FA Cup by winning it for the 14th time after two more goals from our No 14. Take a bow, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. On the day we marked 70 years of service from Ken Friar, in a final played behind closed doors for the first time, we also sealed Europa League football for next season after coming from behind to seal a dramatic win.

"Much of that was down to the man who lifted the trophy amid joyous celebrations at the end, Aubameyang converting from the spot before a sensational second-half finish to win us the game.

"This strangest of finals got off to an open start as the Gabon international headed wide within three minutes before Mason Mount tested Emi Martinez from long range. But before we had time to settle into the game, the Blues took the lead as they swept forward and former Gunner Olivier Giroud found Christian Pulisic to open the scoring.

"It was a hammer blow to go behind so early in the contest, and the American had a chance to add his second not long afterward, but Martinez was equal to his shot from inside the area. It wasn’t looking good, but we patiently worked our way back into the contest and thought we had an equalizer when Nicolas Pepe curled the ball into the top corner after a slick move – only for it to be ruled out as Aubameyang had strayed offside.

"But our pinpoint passes in behind the Chelsea defense were causing all manner of problems, and moments later Kieran Tierney put Aubameyang away with a fine ball up the left. The Gabon international was hauled down by Cesar Azpilicueta in the box – penalty. Our captain stood up and held his nerve to send Willy Caballero the wrong way. Game on.

"We continued to press forward and had much the better of the rest of the first half, coming close to taking the lead when Alex Lacazette curled a free wide from the edge of the area. Chelsea came flying out of the blocks after the restart as the dangerous Pulisic raced clear and into the box, but curled his shot wide of the far post. But again we grew into the half, and had a chance when Pepe and Lacazette combined, before Aubameyang’s effort was blocked inside the box.

"The game was finely-poised – and nowhere near as open as the first half – and as the clock ticked on, the tension only increased. But with 68 minutes gone we burst forward through Hector Bellerin and Pepe, with the latter finding Aubameyang in the box. There was still much to do, but the striker turned Kurt Zouma superbly before dinking the ball into the net. What a strike. What a striker.

"There was further drama when Matteo Kovacic was sent off for a second bookable offense, but importantly there were no further goals – and a record 14th FA Cup was ours. What a moment for Mikel Arteta in his first season as a head coach – and what a moment for all the fans across the world who we wished could have been with us at Wembley".

Meanwhile Arsenal goalkeeper, Emi Martinez during an interview session with the clubs media, Digital, said he might have won the FA Cup, but his family back home will be emotionally down.

"We played our best football this season by far and even losing 1-0 - normally this season when we’re losing 1-0 we put our heads down - and you can see the process [now] and how we fight for the manager, ourselves and our families.

"I think we made the Arsenal fans really proud today and obviously they’ve deserved a lot more from us, especially in the Premier League and in Europe. We’ve had a bad season in the Prem, but we’ve won a trophy so we want them to be happy.

"I felt really confident even before the game and in the semi-final and all the way through in the FA Cup. That’s what I do best, I work hard and everyone says when you work hard you get your rewards and I think I did that today.

"I’ve worked really hard at the club for 10 years for opportunities like this. I couldn’t be prouder. "I spoke to [my family] the whole week and my dad didn’t want to speak a lot about it because he was too nervous, but I bet in Argentina they will be emotionally unstable" he maitained.
