  • Arsenal win FA Cup as Victor Moses sees red

And for Arsenal it is about restoring some pride in a season where they finished in fifth place in the Premier League, and Arsene Wenger becoming the record FA Cup holder as a manager. "They've united and responded".

Another Wembley triumph arguably vindicates Arsenal's reported decision to offer Wenger - out of contract at the end of this season - a new two-year deal despite a season of criticism.

Chelsea, who scored 93 points to blow away the competition in the English Premier League this season, entered the FA Cup Final as the heavy favorite, but Arsenal were able to pull off the upset.

Arsenal's outstanding player shone once again at Wembley. He moved one ahead of George Ramsay who won six FA Cups with Aston Villa.

Danny Welbeck was just a goal post width away from number two for Arsenal, meeting a Ozil corner with the flawless header the ball rebounded off the post only for Ramsey to nod it against the same upright and out for a goals-kick.

Arsenal scored again nearly immediately, through Aaron Ramsey, and Mertesacker ended up deservedly on the winning side. Claims of offside by Aaron Ramsey, which he was, was wiped out by referee Anthony Taylor, who, after consulting with his linesman who awarded the offside pointed to the centre spot to give the goal.

Below are the starting lineups for both teams as Chelsea line up as expected, while Arsenal have Per Mertesacker starting with Gabriel, Koscielny and Mustafi all out injured.

But there were few signs of ring-rust as the former Germany defender produced three crucial last-ditch blocks to thwart Costa.

And then there was the perplexing choice of David Ospina, his manager deciding his loyalty should go towards a second-choice goalkeeper who will leave this summer while leaving out the one, Petr Cech, who will stay.

But Arsenal continued to threaten on the break, Hector Bellerin working Courtois with a firm, low shot, and in the 68th minute the momentum tilted yet further in their direction.

Chelsea made a woeful start and were behind after four minutes thanks to Alexis Sanchez's controversial opener but when Diego Costa levelled in the 76th minute it seemed they would complete a memorable season.

But Wenger reacted by sending on Olivier Giroud and within a minute of coming on for Welbeck, he crossed from the byline on the left and Ramsey charged in to net the victor with a stooping header.

Ramsey, the match-winner in 2014 against Hull, ran through to head home as Antonio Conte's men went close to a famous double, without a celebratory cigar.
