Moses was sent off in the 68th minute by referee Anthony Taylor for falling to the floor under no contact in the Arsenal penalty area, having been booked earlier in the second half for a foul on Danny Welbeck.
Arsenal did not buckle though and went back in front when Chelsea's defence went AWOL, allowing Ramsey the freedom of the box to head substitute Olivier Giroud's cut-back past Courtois. It seems written in the stars for the Frenchman to extend his stay at the club but signing off with a record FA Cup win would also be the ideal way to end his Gunners reign.
"It happened because every player gave 120 or 130% in every game and we didn't have injuries". "This team has suffered, but it has united and responded".
Following a hard weekend for Chelsea Football Club as a whole, manager Antonio Conte has today come out in defence of one of his players, following a post-FA Cup Final backlash.
"If Costa gets one in 90 minutes I've done my job", Holding said, as quoted by the London Evening Standard. They lost seven of 12 matches in all competitions and, despite an end-of-season rally, they finished fifth in the Premier League and missed out on Champions League qualification.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte were unhappy with the first goal. I think the players must keep in mind our fantastic season and also this final.
The former Germany global was ruled out of the first half of the season through injury, and was then unable to regain a place in the side until the final 38 minutes of the Premier League campaign. "The best presentation is to watch the game".
Chelsea failed to gain revenge for the 2002 final, which Arsenal won 2-0, and the result ends their run of four consecutive final victories.
Just as the season reached its climax at Wembley Stadium, Arsenal turned in the type of tenacious display lacking so often, and against a side so commanding in the Premier League.
"Our season was incredible to win the league in this way, it was great but now it's important to look forward and to restart", he added.
