Arsenal and Wenger set new FA Cup records

Arsenal players celebrate with the trophy at the end of the match Arsenal players celebrate with the trophy at the end of the match

The Blues were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal in the FA Cup final on Saturday, as Arsene Wenger ended an extremely hard season winning a trophy.

The Gunners started off sharply and were rewarded after Alexis Sanchez' controversial goal put the Gunners 1 -0 ahead after just five minutes.

But the other big decision Anthony Taylor had to make he got absolutely correct.

Wenger's side could have been forgiven for arriving at Wembley on Saturday at a low ebb after last weekend's devastating failure to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 20 years.

The Wenger debate has divided the club's supporters this season, creating what Wenger describes as a "hostile" environment which has effected his players.

Wenger's future is still up in the air, but there's a time and a place for that, it's not on the pitch seconds after he's won a record 7th FA Cup. You have to reach this point to play in the final and it is a pity we didn't win the FA Cup.

"It's down to the board members if I am the right man to lead this club further", the 67-year-old Frenchman said.

"It is not about popularity, it is about confidence". Yes, Chelsea improved but Arsenal had more chances to score, especially at the end when Chelsea were down to 10 men.

"I'm very proud, if nobody has done it since 18-god knows-when it means it is not easy".

Arsenal have won the #FACupFinal for a record time.

The element of weariness in the Chelsea display did not bode well for next term, when they will once again have the additional commitment of Champions League football.

"I accept that people don't agree with me".

"I don't think I can answer that question at the moment", he told reporters at Wembley after Saturday's game. Outside the game, criticism is fine. He's been fantastic for me, fantastic for these players. Honestly, the goal after three minutes should have been disallowed because there is a clear handball but our start wasn't good.

After the match, Conte admitted that Arsenal had performed better than his team, but insisted that Sanchez's goal and Moses' dismissal decided the game.

Already booked for holding back Welbeck on the touchline, Moses was shown a second yellow card for hurling himself to the ground in the Arsenal box in anticipation of an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain challenge that never came.

"I love this competition and I love playing here. We paid for this start".

"He deserves this. Hopefully he'll be here next season because we owe him a lot".
