Armed police guarding FA Cup final after Manchester bomb

Ramsey delivered embattled manager Arsene Wenger a record seventh FA Cup.

Sanchez appeared to handle the ball in the build-up to his strike, which was provisionally ruled offside until referee Anthony Taylor over-ruled his assistant.

We saw that this season, and they will have to strengthen significantly if they are going to change to become title contenders.

However, he refused to let the heat of the moment rush him into an announcement, reiterating that a decision will be made on Tuesday or Wednesday.

"I am convinced we were hurt by the uncertainty about my future with the players", Wenger said. No, what I want is to win the next game.

The Gunners were facing Premier League champions Chelsea in the FA Cup final and Alexis Sanchez broke the deadlock in the fourth minute to give Arsenal a slender lead.

"We all know the negative talks around the club and it can't have been a nice place to be but Arsene Wenger looks like a young kid there and it's nice to see because he has been under a lot of pressure".

"They only have this possibility to find a good season after a win in the FA Cup", he said ahead of this match.

"We didn't care about what was said in the press or media, we just focused opn ourselves and we had a brilliant game today".

Costa then equalized for Chelsea with 14 minutes to go, seemingly putting the Premier League champions into the driver's seat, but Ramsey popped up shortly after to deflate their counterparts and Arsenal held on to lift the trophy.

Diving has been a huge subject in the game in the past few months and what Moses did is exactly what will get players a retrospective ban next season if officials miss it at the time.

Chelsea came out swinging in the second half and you feared the narrative would be Arsenal's inability to make the most of their chances in the first half. I played with Dennis Bergkamp up front against Manchester United who had Ronaldo, Rooney, Giggs, Scholes.

But this victory also proved that, on their day, Arsenal remain one of the best teams in the country, capable of beating anybody.

"I'm proud to have won seven of these cups".

Bellerin nearly sealed the game with what would have been a fantastic solo goal on 84 minutes as he motored past David Luiz and into the area but hit a low right-foot effort just wide of the far post. When 10-man Chelsea drew level through Costa, they could have collapsed, but within three minutes they netted a victor through Ramsey's header. The boys deserve it, and I'm happy for the manger, I'm delighted. Fair play, it paid off and hopefully he'll be here next season.

Yet back in the bowels of the stadium, where questions quickly turned to his future, he kept his cards close to his chest, refusing to offer any real clues as to whether the FA Cup victory represented a glorious farewell or the springboard for future success under his command.
