Arsenal claims third FA Cup in 4 seasons
LONDON—Arsene Wenger’s turbulent
year ended with a third FA Cup success in
four seasons after Arsenal beat Chelsea
2-1 to deny the English Premier League
champion a double yesterday.
Aaron Ramsey was the match-winner, just
like in the 2014 final, restoring Arsenal’s lead in
the 79th minute shortly after Diego Costa leve-
led for 10-man Chelsea at Wembley Stadium.
Just as the season reached its climax, Arsenal
turned in the type of tenacious display lacking
so often, and against a side so commanding in
the Premier League in Antonio Conte’s first
season in charge. And it might just be enough
to stem the tide of protests against Wenger, as
the record 13-time FA Cup winners are yet to
announce a new contract for the 67-year-old
Frenchman for next season.
Wenger became the competition’s most
successful manager with a seventh title in his
21-year reign, triumphs that have papered over
some of the cracks as Arsenal has repeatedly
come up short in the Premier League and
For once, this was a day when so much went
right for Wenger, even with a patched-up in-
jury-depleted defense featuring captain Per
Mertesacker making his first start in more
than a year.
“We had outstanding performances,” Wenger
said. “We know this team has suffered.”
The Gunners were eliminated from the
Champions League for the seventh successive
season in the last 16. And they won’t even be
back among Europe’s elite in September after
finishing fifth in the Premier League; the lowest
finish since Wenger took charge in 1996.
But the season has ended with a run of six
victories in May after Wenger adopted the
three-man defense that has served Conte so
well, until now.
When Alexis Sanchez put the ball in the net
after four minutes, it was initially disallowed
when Ramsey was adjudged to be interfering
with play while offside. But the decision by
Anthony Taylor’s assistant was overturned
by the referee.
Arsenal even had the luxury of a man advan-

yellow card for diving.
Although Diego Costa equalised in the 76th, bringing
down Willian’s lofted ball on his chest and striking past Da-
vid Ospina, Arsenal was back in front inside three minutes.
Barca seals Copa in Enrique’s last game
MADRID—Barcelona won the Copa del Rey in coach
Luis Enrique’s final game with the club after defeating
Alaves 3-1 in the final on Saturday.
Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Paco Alcacer scored in the
first half as Barcelona won its third straight copa and 29th
all-time. It allowed Luis Enrique to cap his three-year
stint with the Catalan club with one last trophy, his ninth
out of 13 possible. It was the final competitive match at
Atletico Madrid’s Vicente Calderon Stadium, which
will be demolished to give way to a housing complex.
Atletico moves into a new venue next season. Alaves’
only goal came with a superb free kick shot by Theo
Hernandez, who was on loan from Atletico.
PSG scrapes 1-0 win against Angers
PARIS—Wrapping up a season during which it failed
to achieve its two major goals, it was fitting that Paris
Saint-Germain won the French Cup thanks to an own
goal in added time. PSG, which relinquished its league
title to Monaco and was eliminated from the Champions
League in the last 16, ended a mediocre campaign on a
high note by winning the cup with a scrappy 1-0 win
over Angers yesterday.
PSG dominated but needed an own goal from Angers
right back Issa Cissokho to prevail at the Stade de France.
Juventus wins with late goal from Kean
ROME—Juventus ended the Serie A with a sign of
the future as 17-year-old Moise Kean scored a stop-
page-time winner in a 2-1 comeback victory over
Bologna yesterday. A second-half substitute, Kean
connected on a difficult header following a free kick
from Miralem Pjanic.
It was the first Serie A goal for Kean, who was mak-
ing just his third appearance in the Italian league. In
November, Kean became the first player born in this
millennium to appear in Serie A. Paulo Dybala equalised
for Juventus in the 70th with a rebound following a shot
from Gonzalo Higuain, after Bologna’s Saphir Taider
opened the scoring with a splendid shot from beyond
the area following the break. (AP)
