Arsenal dominated Aston Villa as they clinched a record 12th FA Cup triumph at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

The holders deservedly took the lead four minutes from the interval, courtesy of Theo Walcott who fired home from an Alexis Sanchez header back across goal.

The Chillean striker doubled the Gunners’ advantage, sinking a brilliant swerving shot into Shay Given’s net from 30 yards.

Arsene Wenger’s me. continued to pile upfront and grabbed a third when Per Mertesacker was left unmarked to head home from a corner.

Tim Sherwood’s side never really had a shot on target, though they were incensed not being awarded penalties when Gabby Agbonlahor and Jack Grealish both went down under challenges in the box.

Olivier Giroud put the match beyond the Villans, tapping in an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain cross in injury-time.

Arsenal thus became only the eighth team to retain the FA Cup and the most successful side in the competition’s history.

Wenger has now won the trophy six times, the first manager since former Villa boss George Ramsay (in early 20th century) to attain such feat in the post-war era.
