Emirates FA Cup: Arsenal rule on Wenger's future next week

Ramsey urges Wenger to stay as Arsenal celebrate FA Cup win

Ramsey urges Wenger to stay as Arsenal celebrate FA Cup win

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.

Diego Costa says Atletico Madrid are the only club he would join if Chelsea decide to sell him this summer, but insists he is not looking to leave the Premier League champions. I want to win the cup for my club and that's all I care about. "And on Wednesday or Thursday it will be clearer".

It was the first time that Chelsea had been behind in the FA Cup this season but Antonio Conte's side were lucky not to concede a second goal as Arsenal dominated the first-half.

"I think the first goal was very unusual", said the Italian. "Hopefully he will be here next season".

"I think we had an outstanding performance from the first minute onwards", Wenger said after Arsenal's record 13th success in the competition. "We know this team has suffered". "But I also know that the coach wants more and he will do everything to win trophies and we hope he will be there next season".

On the pitch Wenger shifted to three at the back towards the end of the season, then lost Laurent Koscielny to suspension, Gabriel to injury and Shkodran Mustafi, who was suffering from concussion.

"They showed strength and unity", Wenger said, "and we played spectacular football again".

In a frantic opening at Wembley Stadium, Sanchez put Arsenal ahead in controversial fashion as, after his strike was initially ruled out by the linesman for an offside from Aaron Ramsey in the build-up, referee Taylor chose to overrule his assistant. Arsenal kept creating chances to score and in the meantime, Chelsea was down to 1 men with Victor Moses being sent off from the field after receiving his second yellow card. A game of football or a concert is a moment that you must live with passion and enthusiasm.

Chelsea's reprieve was short-lived though as another substitute, Olivier Giroud, crossed for Aaron Ramsey to head home in the 79th minute and restore Arsenal's deserved advantage.

"That's my game, I love to make late runs and Oli knew I'd be there. If they want to sell me to bring in another striker, I'll go but there is one club for me to go".
