Arsenal came from behind to beat Chelsea on Saturday in the FA Cup, 2-1, qualifying for the Europa League as a result. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored both goals for the Gunners, one on each side of half-time. US Chelsea star Christian Pulisic scored but left the game due to injury.Pulisic only scored five minutes to give the Blues early control, but Aubameyang scored a penalty in the first half and then handed home a brilliant 67th-minute winner that was a bit controversial due to a possible fault in the accumulation. Chelsea finished the game with 10 men after Mateo Kovacic’s questionable red card in the second half, winning their second yellow for a challenge over Granit Xhaka.

The result is huge for the Gunners, who end the season with a trophy, advance to Europe and take revenge on their other London club after losing the Europa League final to them last season.

Arsenal 2, Chelsea 1 (FT)

Chelsea: Christian Pulisic (5′)
Arsenal: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Penalty – 28 ‘)
Arsenal: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (67 ‘)
