Arsenal wins FA Cup with a score of 2-1. The hero of the finals is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who might be playing his last game for the team. He showed why Arsenal should try to keep him from leaving the club.

Aubameyang is the first African player to start as a captain in an FA Cup Final. Also, he is the second-oldest player to score for the team in an FA Cup Final. Arsenal’s come-from-behind win impressed football fans across the globe.

Bookie pay per head sources said that Christian Pulisic scored an early goal. However, Aubameyang won a penalty kick when he broke past Cesar Azpilicueta’s defense. The latter pulled the striker’s shoulder that caused him to fall in the area. He evened the score with the resulting penalty kick.
According to pay per head bookie service reports, Aubameyang scored the winning goal at the 67th minute with a quality finish against Willy Caballero. Chelsea didn’t get the chance to even the score since then.
PricePerPlayer Blog believed that Chelsea’s chances to win the match ended with Christian Pulisic’s injury. He scored five minutes after the first whistle, which was his 11th goal of the year. However, the American injured his hamstring in the 49th minute and had to be helped off the field.
