The strange 2019/2020 English season is over. In a Wembley stadium inevitably deserted and punctuated by recorded chants, the Arsenal Gunners won their fourteenth FA Cup (a record), the fourth in seven years.
In the London derby, Olivier Giroud and his teammates, however, did not drag. From the 6th minute, a clever heel from the tricolor striker in the box has indeed allowed the American Pulisic to open the scoring. Dominated, jostled, Arteta's men were able to straighten their heads thanks to the inevitable captain Aubameyang.

🤩 What a festival for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang!

The Gabonese center forward first transformed the equalizer penalty without batting an eyelid after suffering a foul from Azpilicueta (28th). In the second half, following a ride from Bellerin, the n ° 14 recovered the ball at the entrance to the area, mystified Zouma with a hook and deceived Caballero with a small ball stung from the left (67th) . The coup de grace for the players of Frank Lampard, quickly reduced to ten by the expulsion of Kovacic.
A hell of a snub also when we know that Aubameyang, who is at the end of his contract in 2021 and has not yet fixed his future, should have signed for Chelsea in the winter transfer window! For Lacazette and his family, this prestigious success goes beyond just one more cup in the trophy cabinet. It also allows Arsenal, bland eighth in the Premier League, to qualify for the next Europa League.
