John Terry reveals how Victor Moses felt after FA Cup sending off

Delivering the FA Cup three times in four seasons has papered over some of the cracks as Arsenal has repeatedly come up short in the Premier League and Europe.

This was his dream unfolding before disbelieving eyes.

Most Arsenal fans were probably happy to see the Ox in the side albeit at left wing back and he didn't disappoint. The other clubs will spend big. But they finished fifth with 75 points.

"It was time for us to have that learning experience again this season". After showing David Luiz a clean set of heels, he fired just wide of the far post from inside the box. Arsenal were magnificent. They made the Premier League champions look mediocre.

"Take seven million, Arsène, and give them all a rise".

Alexis Sanchez ran the show.

Mesut Ozil did everything his admirers know he can do. For the most part, Ospina played well, making 4 saves, most notably keeping out Diego Costa on two occasions to keep us in the lead.

Nemanja Matic, whose stunning long-range strike crowned the 4-2 semi-final win over Tottenham, is preferred over ex-Arsenal favourite Cesc Fabregas in midfield.

"We believe that Arsene Wenger has the support of the Arsenal board and, perhaps significantly, the support of majority shareholder Stan Kroenke". But Arsenal were playing so well that even the staunchest of the Wenger Out Brigade must have felt their hearts fluttering a little.

The Arsenal pressure was relentless, but they could not find a second goal. Liverpool were nervy with Champions League qualification on the line.

And Aaron Ramsey's victor moments later ensured Mertesacker would complete his fairytale return by lifting the Cup in front of Arsenal's jubilant fans. It felt as if Wenger's vision was being realised. Mertesacker (32) said that his performance proved the motivational power of Wenger's trust, showing the valuable difference that the under-fire manager can still make.

Thus ended Chelsea's hopes of securing a double this season, while Arsenal got a trophy to dress up what has been an otherwise dismal season by the club's standards.

A formal announcement from Arsenal confirming that Wenger has chose to stay is expected on Wednesday, the BBC reported.

"We have arrived at the end of the season and many players are exhausted, and then there is a lot of pressure."It is not a good situation to dive, for sure, but Moses is an honest player and if he did this it's only because he was exhausted".

He sounded, too, like a manager past caring about whether he burned his bridges with the supporters. I have nothing against Antonio, he has done a fantastic job.

The veteran Frenchman has been evasive on questions over his future, but a decision is expected in the coming days and compatriot Coquelin wants to see him continue.

"I think the first goal was very unusual".
