Perhaps more competent leadership would have cleared up far sooner whether Wenger was staying.

"Wenger Out" protests have become more and more prolific with each disastrous result endured by the Gunners, this season, with a 10-2 aggregate defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League and failure to finish in the Premier League top four for the first time in 21 years proving to be the nadir for numerous club's fans. In it, they were drawn away at Football League Championship Preston North End.

"We have a board meeting on Tuesday", he said.

Antonio Conte, 47, led the 2017 Premier League champions Chelsea to meet Arsene Wegner, 67, and Arsenal in the middle of the pitch at historic Wembley Stadium.

The 46-year-old said: "Wenger deserves a lot of credit for turning out that team and getting that performance". This team has suffered, united, and responded.

But the season has ended with a run of six victories in May after Wenger adopted the three-man defense that has served Conte so well, until now.

"We are disappointed, but congratulations to Arsenal because they played very well", said the Belgium stopper.

There was better luck, too.

However, they have made history as they beat Chelsea 2-1 to Lift the FA trophy for the 13th win.

Chelsea were required to play the last 20 minutes a man down after referee Taylor's second big call of the day, deciding that Moses had thrown himself to the floor under no obvious contact from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

"For sure, I don't trust that (the final) will be the last game for Arsene", Conte said. Cahill stopped Danny Welbeck, Alexis Sanchez from scoring.

And scored his 30th goal of the season.

Desperation soon crept into Chelsea's improved second-half display and Moses took a tumble in the box searching for a penalty, only to be deservedly handed a second yellow card.

But Diego Costa brought about a turnaround in the game in the 76th minute when he equalised for Chelsea.

Rather than imploding, Arsenal was back in front within three minutes.

And it might just be enough to stem the tide of protests against Wenger, as the record 13-time FA Cup victor is yet to announce a new contract for the 67-year-old Frenchman for next season.
