End of Match
28' Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Pen.)
67'' Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
5'' Christian Pulisic
FULL TIME Arsenal 2-1 Chelsea
90+7' Martinez is quickly off his line to gather the ball at his near post. He takes out Pedro in the process and the Chelsea forward is in need of some treatment.
90+5' Chelsea are giving it everything as Pedro drives into the box but Sokratis shields it well.
90+2' Chelsea are pressing forward in search of an equaliser but the quality of their deliveries has not been there today, with Abraham barely getting a touch since coming on.
90' 7 minutes have been added on at Wembley.
89' Yellow Card to Ross Barkley.
87' David Luiz has been replaced by Sokratis.
84' Arsenal win a succession of corners but Chelsea stand firm. Lampard's side have no rhythm to their game and are fast running out of time to find an equaliser.
82' Alexandre Lacazette has been replaced by Eddie Nketiah.
79' Chelsea have made a triple substitution. Ross Barkley, Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi have replaced Mason Mount, Olivier Giroud and Antonio Rudiger.
73' Mateo Kovacic has been sent off!
67' GOAL! Arsenal 2-1 Chelsea | Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 67'
64' SHOT!
Kovacic flicks the ball around the corner for Pedro, who delays the shot. He then elects to pass to James, who does shoot but cannot find the target. It is a fair way off target.
62' Ceballos puts his body on the line to block James' shot. Alonso then goes through Maitland-Niles in what is turning out to be a very slow-tempo half of football.
57' Chelsea looked to spring Mason Mount through on the counter after winning the ball back quickly. Jorginho lofted a delicate pass over the top, but Mount was unable to control cleanly and Emiliano Martinez gathered.
55' Aubameyang is the fourth player to score in the semi-final and final of same FA Cup campaign for the club, after Alan Sunderland, Frank Stapleton (both 1979) and Alexis Sanchez (2015 and 2017).
52' Pedro puts his fresh legs to good use down the left, but credit to Holding for sticking with his man and blocking the cross. Mount's corner is an easy one for Martinez to gather.
48' Christian Pulisic has been replaced by Pedro.
46' Second Half begins..
HALF TIME Arsenal 1-1 Chelsea
45+4' Chelsea forward tussled with Dani Ceballos and was shown a yellow card, even though replays showed there was very little contact.
45' Five minutes will be added on.
44' Pepe goes down under a slight touch from Christensen and it's a free-kick for Arsenal.
42' Arsenal are starting to ramp up the pressure with a succession of corners and Chelsea eventually get out of their box after a stray pass from Holding.
40' Nicolas Pepe looked to hand Arsenal back the momentum shortly after. The tricky winger cleverly threaded the ball through a defender's legs before jinking on to his left boot, but he was unable to squeeze a shot away before being robbed of possession.
37' Jorginho is handed the captain's armband in Azpilicueta's absence. Mount makes a run in behind and pulls the ball back to Jorginho, who side-foots it over the crossbar.
33' Problem for Azpilicueta now as the captain pulls up with a hamstring problem and the early signs suggest his game is over.
28' GOAL! Arsenal 1-1 Chelsea | Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (pen) 28'
24' Pepe curls home superbly but the flag had gone up for offside in the build-up - and the assistant referee has got that one spot on.

VAR checks and agrees. No goal - and that's a let-off for Chelsea.
23' Drinks break
20' Maitland-Niles, given the nod over Saka today, is played in down the left - not for the first time today. However, the left wing-back loses control of the ball and Chelsea win a goal-kick.
15' Mateo Kovacic has been booked by referee Anthony Taylor.
10' Pulisic is again able to dribble through the middle and shoot for a goal. It's on target, but this time Martinez is able to make the stop.
6' Arsenal try to get back on level terms with Pep fancying a go from 20 yards but it's a comfortable save for Caballero.
5' GOAL! Arsenal 0-1 Chelsea | Christian Pulisic 5'
3' Maitland-Niles did superbly to wriggle his way into a crossing position from a long punt forward, and his delivery was nodded wide by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
1' First Half begins..
Both teams have emerged from the Wembley tunnel and are lined up for the national anthem.
