Arsenal’s talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang once again played the magic of Wembley, defeating Chelsea from behind and winning a record 14 FA Cup championship.
Chelsea led by Christian Prisic’s excellent completion rate in the heads-up Cup final within five minutes, but later became a glorious victim of Aubameyang.
Aubameyang is also the hero of Arsenal. Scored twice in Manchester City’s final defeat.
After being fouled by Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta, the Gabonese striker drew Arsenal’s level from the penalty spot before the break and then created a world-class moment, closing the door for the first time The FA Cup final made a decisive contribution.
Chelsea was blocked by an injury to Aspilicueta in the first half, and their struggle was even more difficult when they lost their excellent Prisic with a hamstring problem after the break.
Although the Blues struggled to overcome these setbacks, the wonderful Aubameyang gave Mikel Arteta silverware in his 1st season as Gunners manager.
Understandably, Arsenal was eager to get a new long-term contract with Aubameyang, and in the 67th minute, they changed Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma (Kurt Zouma) and then made the boldest ending. , Defeated goalkeeper Willy Caballero from one angle.
Chelsea’s pain further intensified, as Mateo Kovacic was severely sent off for the second yellow card, which was due to referee Anthony Taylor’s fight against Granit Xhaka.
Awarded for the challenge. Arsenal ended their victory to secure a place in the Europa League next season, but he was disappointed by the end of Chelsea coach Frank Lampard’s first game.
Arteta’s winning feeling:
Arteta’s joy at the final whistle is obvious because he won the manager’s first major trophy after Unai Emery in December.
There have been some complicated moments-but in recent weeks, Arsenal has shown their development by beating the new Premier League champion Liverpool and defeating Manchester City to enter the final, ending Manchester City’s hopes of retaining the FA Cup.
Aubameyang proved this, making Wembley a personal playground for the semifinals and finals.When the celebrations are over, Arsenal will know their summer priorities with greater certainty, even more important than any acquisition.
Arsenal must find a way to keep Aubameyang. Their career benefits from being able to provide him with European football, even though he is in the Europa League and not the Champions League.
He is just a talent that brings another danger to Arsenal. He was the winner of the game, in this case, the final winner of the FA Cup.
Lampard’s Chelsea suffer Wembley pain:
For Chelsea and Lampard, everything went so well because they dominated the opening game at Wembley and achieved Prisic’s goal.
Chelsea were cancelled due to their own injuries, Arsenal’s outstanding progress and Kovacic’s dismissal.
The Croatian international was given a yellow card for the second time in the match against Xhaka, which sparked the view that this was actually a foul before referee Anthony Taylor finally showed the red card.
It more or less heralded the end of Chelsea’s hopes. Lampard’s first season was full of hope.
He ranked first in the UEFA Champions League next season but did not win the championship trophy.
Chelsea has a lot of enviable things, because Lampard is young and experienced When Aubameyang plundered them in a deadly manner, these defensive weaknesses became obvious.
When their army receives the loser’s medal, Chelsea and Lampard will reflect on the day when there is little progress after the opening five minutes.
