Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice as Arsenal came from behind to beat Chelsea and win the Heads Up FA Cup for a record 14th time.

At a near-empty Wembley, Chelsea took the lead through Christian Pulisic's composed finished before Aubameyang equalised with a contentious penalty after Cesar Azpilicueta's challenge.

Gabon forward Aubameyang hit the winner after going past Kurt Zouma.

Chelsea's Mateo Kovacic was later sent off for two yellow card offences.

Mikel Arteta's first major trophy since taking charge of the Gunners in December 2019 means Arsenal will play in the Europa League next season.
