The FA Cup. Arsenal barely beat Chelsea in the final of 2017



Telegraph Sport

Arsenal got a very tough victory over fellow countrymen from “Chelsea” and won his record 13th FA Cup.

The FA Cup 2016/17. The final.

Arsenal 2:1 Chelsea

Goals: Sanchez, 4; Fat, 78 Diego Costa, 76

Removal: Moses, 68 (H)


The London Derby between Arsenal and Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley started very quickly, although it seemed that the game will be very smooth. However, Alexis Sanchez thought otherwise and brought the gunners forward. However, the linesman could not believe my eyes and disallowed the goal. However, the arbitrator firmly spoke to a colleague and pointed to center field – 1:0 and Arsenal ahead .

We can say that the match was not a single quiet moment, and in the middle of the first half the field could leave the main in this match, the goalkeeper David Ospina, but found the strength to continue the match.

The second half was much more interesting events. Especially Chelsea, who struggled hard to equalise, but instead began to be rude and Victor Moses all ended in tears: instead of the coveted free-kick, the striker earned a second yellow and sent off for simulation.

It seemed that Chelsea should lose heart, however, Diego Costa has thought differently and took advantage of the error protection of the Arsenal and the goalkeeper.

Arsene Wenger got it right and fielded Olivier Giroud. A Frenchman a few moments to think about it and… scored the second goal in gate Courtois. But that’s not the end: on target “pensioners” were beaten and Bellerin, and Ozil (who wanted to be different in style Bergkamp Yes, that skill is not enough), and Coquelin El-Neny.

However, nothing turned out the teams, and Arsenal wins the Cup of England, for which he even had to beat the two daring “upstarts” from the 5th League – “Sutton United”, and then “Lincoln city”.

However, Arsenal will meet again with Chelsea. This time, in the battle for the Supercup of England.
