Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang powers Arsenal to FA Cup Final win over Chelsea
The kings of the FA Cup have emerged as the best of the best once again at Wembley Stadium.
Moments ago, Arsenal took down Chelsea 2-1 in London to capture its 14th FA Cup championship. The Gunners' 14 titles is No. 1 on the list, as the team continues to extend its lead over Manchester United.
In Saturday's win, Arsenal was down 1-0 early on thanks to a goal from Christian Pulisic, but the Gunners never doubted themselves and fought back to earn a tough 2-1 victory.
After Pulisic put the Blues in front, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang evened things up in the 28th minute after he was brought down inside the box. Cooler than the other side of the pillow, 'Auba' fired his PK past Willy Caballero, who dove the wrong way.
At halftime, the two sides entered the break even at 1-1. Unfortunately for Chelsea, Pulisic went down at the start of the second half with a hamstring injury and was quickly subbed off.
For Arsenal, they put the pressure on the Blues and took the lead in the 67th minute thanks to a brilliant finish by Aubameyang. To make matters worse for Chelsea, Mateo Kovacic was handed his second yellow card in the 73rd minute, leaving the Blues with 10 men.
While Chelsea fans hoped the equalizer would come late in the game, it never did. Once again, Arsenal is the FA Cup champions, with Aubameyang no question making the difference in this one.
