Arsenal earned an impressive 2-1 win over Chelsea in the FA Cup final to record a 14th FA Cup crown.
This is the perfect end to a frustrating season for Mikel Arteta’s men, who now have a trophy and will play in the Europa League next season.
Several of the Arsenal players were in fine form. Here are the Arsenal player ratings.
Emiliano Martinez – 7 denied Mount a goal and was equal to the task when Chelsea pressured his goal in search of an equaliser.
Rob Holding – 7
Showed his class by standing firm against Chelsea’s attackers after the Blues had scored early on.
David Luiz – 8
Won the battle with Olivier Giroud and showed why, on his day, he is one of the best around.
Kieran Tierney – 7
He will feel that he should have done better with Pulisic’s goal. Recovered well to make a fine contribution to the win.
Hector Bellerin – 7
Suspect at the back, but supported the attack well and played a key role in Aubameyang’s second goal.
Dani Ceballos – 8
Delivered a performance of the highest quality. Needs to be kept.
Granit Xhaka – 7
Very trustworthy performance from the Swiss midfielder as he continues to show his importance to the club.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles – 7
Put in a very matured performance and showed that he is much more experienced than Bukayo Saka.
Nicolas Pépé – 8
He was a constant menace to the Chelsea defence and gave them plenty to worry about for the entirety of the game. Setup Aubameyang for the second goal.
Alexandre Lacazette – 6
Should have had a better touch from an Aubameyang pass that set him up nicely. Didn’t do much to worry Chelsea’s defence.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 9
He is worth whatever he is asking the club to pay him and proved that yet again with two goals. He was too much trouble for Chelsea to contend with.
Eddie Nketiah – 6
Didn’t have enough time to do anything as the game kept getting interrupted.
Sokratis Papastathopoulos – N/A
Sead Kolasinac – N/A
Mikel Arteta – 10
Won a trophy in half a season, end of the conversation.
