Chelsea star defends Victor Moses after dive and red card in FA Cup final

Chelsea star defends Victor Moses after dive and red card in FA Cup final

Arsène Wenger's turbulent year ended with his third F.A. Cup win in four seasons as Arsenal beat Chelsea, 2-1, on Saturday.

It remains unclear whether the 67-year-old will continue as manager of the Gunners, despite capping a disappointing season with a record-breaking victory over the newly crowned Premier League champions.

Chelsea failed to gain revenge for the 2002 final, which Arsenal won 2-0, and the result ends their run of four consecutive final victories.

The Sun claimed earlier this month that Fabregas is at the centre of a £25m transfer tussle between Premier League giants Manchester United and Liverpool.

Moses was shown a second yellow card in the second half by referee Anthony Taylor for a dive in the box under pressure from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

In his first full game for more than a year, the giant German global went toe-to-toe with Chelsea bully-boy Diego Costa and never took a backward step.

Gilt-edged chances for Mesut Ozil, Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey followed Sanchez's opener as Arsenal looked to move out of sight before the interval, but Chelsea held firm to gain a foothold in the game after the restart.

Asked if he had thought about leaving Chelsea, Fabregas said: "Not necessarily, but in football you can never say never".

"It is not easy but I think that we won the league and it was right to celebrate and enjoy this win", Conte added.

"It is not about popularity, it is about confidence".

"Of course I want him to stay at the club", the Welshman said.

"I've kept my medal, so it means it's a special night". "It's been an up and down season but to finish it with an FA Cup has to be a successful season", Ramsey said after repeating his final victor against Hull in 2014.

"If Ramsey was not in an off-side position, I could go out and touch the ball but I had to stop because he was there".

"I was in great form and it was a shame I didn't start the game", he said.

Wenger was once again critical of those Arsenal fans who have demonstrating against him during matches this season.

"For the trust from my team-mates and my manager because being sidelined for such a long time, I suffered a lot this season because you want to contribute on the pitch".

"I think it was a handball even if it was maybe not deliberate". Once a game starts and you're a fan, then you stand behind the team.

"This season has been hurt by a blip in March and I am convinced now, looking back at this season, by the uncertainty about my future with the players".
