Arsenal ended their nine-year wait for a trophy on Saturday by beating Hull City in the FA Cup final.

The Gunners started the match as favourites but goals from James Chester and Curtis Davies gave Hull a flying start in the first eight minutes.

A free-kick by Santi Cazorla put Arsenal back in contention before half-time and Laurent Koscielny equalised after 71 minutes.

Aaron Ramsey completed the comeback with 11 minutes of extra time left.

Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta said: "The start of the match was shocking... but we showed the character, desire and spirit of this team to put it right in the end."
