Arsenal are FA Cup winners again after a 2-1 victory over Chelsea at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night.

They trailed to an early Christian Pulisic goal before talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored either side of half-time to regain the trophy.

This is what went down …

FULL-TIME: Arsenal 2-1 Chelsea

It is all over at Wembley.

An Aubameyang double sees Arsenal come from behind to beat 10-man Chelsea.

The Gunners are champions for the 14th time in their history – more than any other club.


The Blues task has just been made even harder. They are down to 10 men.

With 18 minutes remaining, Mateo Kovacić picks up a second yellow card for a foul on Granit Xhaka – an extremely harsh decision. Anthony Taylor got that one all wrong.

GOAL! Arsenal 2-1 Chelsea

He’s done it again!

An absolutely glorious shimmy and chipped finish from Aubameyang – and Arsenal have completed their comeback.

Hats off to Hector Bellerín and his incredible work in the build-up too.

Inside the final 30 minutes

Chelsea have improved after the break but were dealt a huge blow by losing Christian Pulisic to a hamstring injury.

Still level.

HALF-TIME: Arsenal 1-1 Chelsea

Aubameyang’s penalty sends the sides in level after Pulisic gave the Blues an early lead.

Unstoppable Auba

Aubameyang has been the Premier League’s top marksman for the past two-and-a-half years.

Move over Mo.

GOAL! Arsenal 1-1 Chelsea

We are all square at Wembley.

Aubameyang has levelled things up from the penalty spot after he was fouled by César Azpilicueta.

Game on!

In good company

Pulisic’s goal means he’s the youngest player to score in an FA Cup since, well, someone you’ve probably heard of.

Captain America.

GOAL! Arsenal 0-1 Chelsea

It has taken just five minutes for the opening goal.

Arsenal couldn’t handle a quick Chelsea break into their box and Pulisic makes space before finding the corner.

What a start!

We’re underway

This is it. On a glorious evening at Wembley, we are on the verge of engraving a familiar name on the trophy once again.

Ten minutes to go

A unique version of Abide With Me, as is tradition, prior to kick-off. Emeli Sandé taking to the roof to provide it.


Willy Caballero carves out a place in the record books this evening.

Team news is in

An hour until kick-off and the team sheet has been submitted.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles starts for the Gunners, while Willy Caballero does indeed get the nod between the posts for Chelsea.

They have arrived

Arsenal are in the house at Wembley.

Their opponents, including some new faces who are ineligible, are inspecting the turf at the national stadium.

Who will come out on top?
