Conte frustrated by slow-starting Chelsea, and referee

The last time to win the title but fall in the FA Cup was in 2007, when Chelsea knocked off Manchester United in the final game of the season.

Victor Moses was sent off after 68 minutes, receiving his second booking for simulation in the penalty area, but Diego Costa equalised before Aaron Ramsey headed home a 79th-minute winner.

Chelsea skipper John Terry, who will leave the club at the end of the season after 22 years, said that anything other than a win would tarnish their achievements.

We know Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is absolutely driven and he will be telling his players that they have one more game this season, and they have the chance to do something that hardly any players have achieved.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger:"It will not be my last match because whatever happens I will stay in football".

"We won the league and we are very happy with that but we have another hard game to play and if we get the double, it will be good for us", Zouma said."We haven't won the game yet, we haven't played yet". "He deserves this. We changed the formation and had a lot of success". Shkodran Mustafi is not expected to be fit after suffering concussion in the Premier League win over Sunderland, while Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel Paulista are both suspended. "Hopefully he will be here next season".

Desperate Chelsea huffed and puffed, but the extra man played against them as Arsenal held off their London rivals for a third FA Cup trophy in four years and a record seventh for Wenger. "He put it on a plate for me to score the victor".

"For me, this season was incredible for us".

"I love this competition and I love playing here".

Arsenal's Premier League campaign was a major disappointment as they finished fifth, but they were significantly more impressive in the first half, as Alexis Sanchez gave them an early - if slightly contentious - lead before Mesut Ozil, Danny Welbeck and Ramsey all went agonisingly close to adding more.

"It's been an up and down season", Ramsey said, "but to finish it with an FA Cup has to be a successful season".

And pressed on whether he was unsure whether the board was backing him, he said: 'I don't think I can answer that question at the moment'.

Conte felt Oxlade-Chamberlain had made contact with Moses, although he did not go as far as to say the Chelsea wing-back should have had a spot-kick, but did insist Sanchez's goal should not have stood.
