Arsenal Football Club on Saturday evening came from behind to defeat their local rivals Chelsea 2-1 to lift the 2020 Emirates FA Cup after a pulsating encounter at the Wembley stadium.

Christian Pulisic put Chelsea ahead at the 5th minute but 28 minutes later, Arsenal's talisman, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equalised from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Chelsea Captain Cesar Azpilicueta at the 26th minute of the game.

Aubameyang, who Arsenal are understandably desperate to secure on a new long-term contract, turned Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma inside out in the 67th minute before delivering the most audacious finish, chipping over keeper Willy Caballero from an angle.

Chelsea's agony increased further when Matteo Kovacic was very harshly sent off for a second yellow card, awarded by referee Anthony Taylor for the most innocuous of challenges on Granit Xhaka.

Arsenal FA Cup win means the Gunners have secured a place in the Europa League next season.

The Gunners have now lifted the famous trophy for a record 14 times.
