Both Arsenal goals were scored by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who led the Gunners to victory in the spectator-less Wembley Stadium.

The lead was short-lived as Aubameyang made good on a penalty in the 28th minute to tie the game, his second goal coming during the second half in the game’s 67th minute.

The win gave Arsenal its fourth FA Cup title in seven seasons, the last coming in 2017.

 The 139th FA Cup final is the first to be played without fans due to COVID-19 restrictions.
