Prince William Leads FA Cup Final Tribute to Manchester Dead

This is Arsenal's 13th FA Cup victory and the seventh of the Arsene Wenger era.

Mesut Ozil had a shot back-heeled off the line by Gary Cahill while Chelsea had an awesome escape when Danny Welbeck's header thumped against the post and Ramsey bundled the ball back against the same upright.

Chelsea improved after the break but had to play the final quarter of the match with 10 men after Victor Moses received his second yellow card following a blatant dive in the area.

Bellerin shot just wide and Ozil hit the post after cutting inside Cesar Azpilicueta, but just as in the 2014 final against Hull City, Ramsey's goal was to prove the victor.

Ospina then atoned for Costa's goal by producing a fine save to deny the Spain striker, and Ozil hit the post late on.

"But once the game starts and you are a fan, you stand behind the team, that is what I have not accepted this season and I will never accept it". The German defender put in a dominant display to keep Costa quiet.

"I've been on the receiving end of losing Cup finals and it's not a nice feeling on the last day of the season". "It would be a bit ridiculous that 20 years depends on one games and the future of the club depends on one games, we will see more next week".

A piece of unwanted history for the Chelsea player.

Whatever the future holds for Wenger, he said the current Arsenal team can look forward with optimism.

Here, for every Arsenal fan to savour, we show the 79th-minute goal in glorious super slo-motion.

Mertesacker was playing alongside a left-back Nacho Monreal who was converted to centre-back, while youngster Rob Holding was playing in his first major showpiece.

Arsenal. Chelsea. Two names that embody the idea of British soccer.

Chelsea had been hot favourites to complete a remarkable debut season for manager Antonio Conte but were not at their clinical best as Arsenal, who finished fifth in the league, lifted the Cup for the third time in four seasons.

They got off to the worst possible start, going behind after just four minutes.

The 32-year-old had played only 37 minutes all season after coming off the bench in last weekend's win against Everton.
