Arsenal won their 13th FA Cup after Aaron Ramsey headed home a second-half winner in the final against Chelsea, having also scored the winner in 2013/14’s final against Hull City.
Alexis Sanchez controversially put Arsenal ahead just minutes into the game. The Chilean international blocked a clearance and chased the ball into the box before volleying past Thibaut Courtois.
However, Aaron Ramsey was in an offside position and was flagged for interfering by the linesman. Referee Martin Atkinson overruled the official and let the goal stand.
Arsenal maintained their lead until the break, but Chelsea came out fighting in the second-half.
After Victor Moses was sent off for a second bookable offence, teammate Diego Costa levelled the match in the 76th minute, controlling a Willian cross and volleying past Petr Cech.
The Blues’ joy didn’t last. Ramsey raced onto a blind cross into the box from Olivier Giroud to head home the winning goal just minutes after Costa had equalised.
