Except Arsenal FC digs deep, this could be Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s last march for the Gunners as the 31-year-old Gabonese is out of contract at the end of next season. Having scored 2 goals that gave his team victory, this would be nothing short of a glorious exit.

Besides no one can take these records from him. He is the first African player to start an FA Cup final as captain, as well as the second oldest player to score for Arsenal in the showpiece. He has also scored penalties in FA cup finals in both Germany and England. This also a record.

Aubameyang won the German Cup with Borussia Dortmund in 2017, scoring the winning goal from the penalty spot.

Chelsea scorer, Pulisic is also a record breaker as the first American to score in the FA Cup final  He was on the score sheet after just five minutes, with his 11th goal of the season.

Mikel Arteta who has enhanced his reputation with this trophy is equally a  record-breaker having won the trophy both as a player and now, Manager for the club. The club, Arsenal with their 14th FA Cup success also holds the record as the club with the highest number of victories in the history of  FA cup finals.
