Sports Desk – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a brace as Arsenal came from 0-1 down to beat Chelsea 2-1 and win the 14th FA Cup Title on Saturday. And they booked their spot in the next season’s UEFA Europa League.
It was Chelsea who started on the right note when 21-year-old Christian Pulisic became the first American man to score in an FA Cup final inside five minutes.
Arsenal, however, regained control through the equaliser from a penalty by Aubameyang in the 18th minute. The sides went into half-time locked at 1-1.
A year into this pandemic-disrupted, longest-ever English season, Azpilicueta hobbled off injured in tears before halftime. With Chelsea unsettled by the injuries, Arsenal took control and Aubameyang chipped goalkeeper Willy Caballero from close range in the 67th.
It not only sealed Arsenal’s fourth FA Cup in seven seasons. but a place in the Europa League, having only finished eighth in the Premier League.
