Ramsey wants Wenger to stay after scoring FA Cup final winner

Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi has expressed his delight that Arsenal had something to smile about in what has been a tough season following their 2-1 win against 10-man Chelsea in Staurday's FA Cup final, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Wenger became the first manager to win seven FA Cups as Arsenal upset the odds to deny Chelsea the double with a 2-1 victory at Wembley Stadium.

Aaron Ramsey headed home a 78th minute victor, two minutes after Spain striker Diego Costa cancelled out Alexis Sanchez's fifth minute opener for Arsene Wenger's side.

It also marked the second time they had beaten Chelsea this season, as they also defeated the No. 1 Premier League team back on September 24, 2016.

"I'm in a public job, I accept to be criticised and people don't agree with me", he said. "They showed strength and unity and played spectacular football".

"We had outstanding performances", Wenger said. "Hopefully he will be here next season". After winning his seventh FA Cup, is there any reason he would want to step down now?

Chelsea have a fully fit squad for the game against the Gunners, including 36-year-old John Terry who will make his last appearance for Chelsea if he features tomorrow.

"I am convinced we were hurt by the uncertainty about my future with the players", Wenger said.

Although Diego Costa equalized in the 76th, bringing down Willian's lofted ball on his chest and striking past David Ospina, Arsenal was back in front inside three minutes.

'But we would prefer to win the Premier League to the FA Cup, so it is still a good season'.

It meant Wenger lined up with a back three of Nacho Monreal (a left back by trade) and Holding (playing only his 18th game for Arsenal) either side of Mertesacker, who was injured until February and whose only 37 minutes of the season was as a substitute against Everton.

So, the Chelsea manager will have to be satisfied with only one title in his first season in English soccer.

"We must be very cold to analyse the situation and to understand that this season we did something great with the players". He switched to a three-man defense following a loss to Crystal Palace in mid-April, and the Gunners have won nine and only lost once in all competitions since, including the win over the league champs to take the FA Cup crown.
