Mikel Arteta has won his first trophy for the Gunners after coming from behind to beat Chelsea by 2-1 in the FA Cup finals on Saturday at Wembley.



The win means Arsenal have qualified for next seasons Europa League competition and will play Liverpool in the Community Shield before the start of the Premier League.

Chelsea made one change from the side that beat Manchester United in the semi-finals as Christian Pulisic took his place in the three-man attack with N'Golo Kante named among the list of substitutes. 



There is no Willian in the matchday squad, while Kepa Arrizabalaga was also benched with Willy Caballero retaining his place in goal.

 Hector Bellerin came in at right-back with Joe Willock dropping to the bench as Arteta made a single change in the squad that beat Watford.

Christian Pulisic put the Blues ahead as early s the 6-minute after combining with Mount before a cute backheel from Giroud back to Pulisic allowed the American to dink the ball over the onrushing Martinez.

Arsenal started to find their groove with Xhaka and Ceballos seeing more of the ball in the midfield but upfront Aubameyang was dormant as the Chelsea defense kept him shut from been found.

A Tierney's long ball over the top in the 26-minute caught Azpilicueta out as Aubameyang was brought down. Anthony Taylor shows the Chelsea captain a yellow card, as a penalty was rewarded to Arsenal after VAR looked into it. Aubameyang beautifully sent the Caballero the wrong way to level the scores.



The Gabonese doubled the lead 23-minutes in the second half.

Bellerin brought the ball forward as Christensen made the tackle but the ball breakthrough to Pepe on the right-hand side of the penalty area. He looked up and saw Aubameyang in space on the left.

The Gabonese found and turned Kurt Zouma inside out before dinking the ball over Willy Caballero to define why Arsenal must sign him.



Mateo Kovacic was sent off in the 73-minute after his second booking as Chelsea failed to respond.

It was the Gunners 14th FA Cup trophy, while they have also become the first club to beat a specific opponent in as many as three finals in the competition.
