Arsenal beats Chelsea to win third FA Cup in 4 seasons

Arsenal produced a superb, vibrant display against Chelsea in Saturday's FA Cup final, with the Gunners deservedly securing a record 13th title. It is a weird rule but nevertheless, forget the offside, for me I thought it was very lucky to not be given as a handball. "We played some games in a hostile environment and I can not accept that".

The FA Cup win over Chelsea might have been the ideal way for Wenger to say goodbye after two decades at Arsenal were he so minded but he insisted he was not thinking about how to say farewell. "We have played some games in a hostile environment and I never accept that". Or, at least, his team saved their very best performance of their season for their last game.

"I expect myself to perform at that level every single week", he said.

The Blues, however, responded manfully and equalised through Diego Costa on 76 minutes but Ramsey had the final say heading in what turned out to be the victor three minutes later. "He deserves this. We changed the formation and had a lot of success".

The veteran Frenchman has been evasive on questions over his future, but a decision is expected in the coming days and compatriot Coquelin wants to see him continue.

"I've always been very clear on that", he said, when asked whether he would still be at the helm in August.

Wenger had major selection issues with Laurent Koscielny suspended and both Shkodran Mustafi and Gabriel injured, so centre-back Per Mertesacker was given his first start of the season.

"I think we were outstanding from first minute", he added. "If we finished with a win the season that would have been incredible, but now it's important to go forwards and to restart".

"I believe that it's a positive trend but it would be ridiculous if 20 years depends on one game or the future of the club depends on one game". We knew they would play well as they have the last weeks.

I'm sure he wants the best for the team and if he thinks that is the way to go you have to go with it, we are a team. Even though it has been a bit hard in recent seasons.
