5 things we learned from Arsenal's FA Cup final win over Chelsea

Wenger's men have now won the FA Cup in three of the last four years, while he moves ahead of George Ramsey, who won the competition six times as a manager from 1887 to 1920, by claiming his seventh title.

The 67-year-old Frenchman is still facing protests from a number of supporters who do not want him to sign a new deal at the Emirates Stadium, with his current contract expiring next month. There's a World Cup and if I go to China I won't play it. We'll see in the next few days. "We owe him a lot".

"There is only one team [Atletico] I could go", he said.

Ramsey also netted the victor in Arsenal's FA Cup victory over Hull City in May 2014 and he insisted the club's season should now be judged prosperous despite missing out on qualification for the Champions League for the first time in two decades.

The 28-year-old Spain global has two years left on his contract at Stamford Bridge and told reporters after the cup final that a move to the Chinese Super League would jeopardise his chances of being involved in the 2018 World Cup. We deserve it and I'm happy for the boys. Moses' sending off was a key moment in the game, I don't know if it was the right call. We have to improve in numbers in the squad and in quality.

Diego Costa equalised for Chelsea late in the second half, after Chelsea had lost Victor Moses to a second yellow card for diving, but Wenger's men had the ideal response as Aaron Ramsey bagged the winner three minutes later.

"Obviously it was a great performance", Welbeck told BBC Sport.

With Arsenal heading into the game with a defensive injury crisis, meaning they had to make do without Laurent Koscielny, Gabriel Paulista and Shkodran Mustafi, some Chelsea fans were licking their lips at the prospect of Diego Costa and Eden Hazard taking on Mertesacker.

He added: "I said it many times, when we hear the word "Arsenal", the first name we think is Arsene Wenger".
