Arsenal and Arsene Wenger made history at Wembley on Saturday in the FA Cup to cement our position as one of the elite clubs in English football history.
A 4-0 win against Aston Villa meant that we have now become the most decorated club in FA Cup history, surpassing Manchester United with our back-to-back wins.
Our legendary boss is now the most successful modern manager in FA Cup history and nobody has won it more times than him.
Over the past few years, our respect for this trophy has been questioned, but the numbers do not lie.
Arsenal transfer news
The players were jubilant, with the likes of Alexis Sanchez tasting their first piece of silverware with the club. There was clearly a different feeling among players and fans this time around due to a number of factors.
- Arsenal keeping tabs on €40m Italy star after ‘outstanding’ season
- Where Arsenal would have finished in the league without VAR
- Arsenal’s top Hector Bellerin replacement is now available for £30m
Firstly, the final wasn’t as dramatic with the team taking control of proceedings from the first minute and never looked like giving Aston Villa hope of asserting themselves.
Also, the pressure of ending a trophy drought had been lifted and the players were clearly enjoying themselves on the pitch, playing some of our best football this season.
Our players couldn’t wait to get their hands on the trophy and here are some of our stars posing with the illustrious prize.
