Skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a brace to guide Arsenal to a 2-1 win over Chelsea in the final of the FA Cup on Saturday.
With this win, the Gunners have extended their record to14 FA Cup title wins at the iconic Wembley stadium.
After going 1-0 down early on in the match, Aubameyang struck twice for Arsenal in both halves. After scoring the equalizer from a spot-kick, the 31-year-old scored an absolute banger to hand Arsenal the lead.
In the build-up to that goal, fullback Hector Bellerin made an explosive 40-yard dash through the Chelsea midfield and managed to find Nicolas Pepe on the wings.
After throwing a step over, Arsenal’s record signing passed the ball through to Aubameyang and what happened next was absolute class.
The Gabonese forward first stod up to Kurt Zouma and then turned him inside-out with his quick feet before chipping the ball into the back of the net after spotting an onrushing Willy Caballero.
