Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez were in high spirits after helping Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1 to win the FA Cup in a thrilling game at Wembley.

Sanchez gave Arsenal the lead in the fourth minute as the Gunners made a bright start to the cup final in north London.

The Gunners should have scored a second as they largely dominated proceedings in the first half of the game against the newly-crowned Premier League champions.

Chelsea were reduced to 10 men midway through the second half when Victor Moses was shown a second yellow card for a dive in the box.

However, Diego Costa equalised to get Chelsea back into the game.

But Aaron Ramsey ended up scoring the winner just moments later when he headed home Olivier Giroud’s cross as Arsenal wrapped up their third FA Cup win in four years.

There has been much speculation about both Ozil and Sanchez’s futures at Arsenal beyond the summer, but both players certainly looked to be happy as they celebrated in the Wembley dressing room after the game.

Sanchez, whose contract expires next summer like Ozil’s posted the picture above on his Instagram story as the Gunners celebrated ending the season on a high.

Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1 in FA Cup final

Aaron Ramsey scored a 79th-minute winner to earn Arsenal a stunning 2-1 win over Double-chasing Chelsea on Saturday and deliver embattled manager Arsene Wenger a record seventh FA Cup.

Wenger has been barracked by his own fans and failed to secure Champions League qualification for the first time in 20 years, but he ends the season by surpassing Aston Villa’s George Ramsey as the FA Cup’s greatest manager.

Alexis Sanchez’s early opener for Arsenal, allowed to stand despite an apparent handball, was cancelled out by Diego Costa, only for Ramsey to reply immediately with the second FA Cup-winning goal of his career.

It was Arsenal’s third FA Cup win in four seasons and 13th in total, making them the outright most successful team in the competition’s history ahead of Manchester United.
