Arsenal produced a brilliant performance to record a 2-1 win over Premier League champions Chelsea to win their 13th FA Cup and become the most successful side in the history of the oldest club competition in the world.

Alexis Sanchez put the Gunners in front after only four minutes into the highly explosive and entertaining final, only for Diego Costa to level matters for the Blues in the 76th minute.

But Arsene Wenger’s men responded three minutes later with a superb goal by Aaron Ramsey.

Arsenal board of directors will decide either on Wednesday or Thursday, whether the club will retain the services of their coach, Arsene Wenger for another season.

Wenger himself gave the indication about the impending decision in an interview with BBC at the end of the game.

“We have a board meeting on Tuesday, and on Wednesday or Thursday it will be very clear,” the 67 year-old Wenger told the BBC.

“I know my mind (on future). Let us enjoy this win and not worry about the future,” he said afterwards.

“I try to serve this club with always the same commitment and quality.

“We had some difficult moments but I spent every minute of my season on full commitment and we never give up and that is why today I am more proud than usual because the team and myself refused to give up and we finished the job in a positive way.

“Nobody gave us a chance and we responded with attitude and class and we have seen that today.

“For once I have kept my medal so that means it is a special night for me and for the rest we will see what happens in the future.”
