Breaking News ! Saturday, August 1, 2020, is a day that will live long in the memory of Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez. Having stepped out of the cold to fill in for the injured Bernd Leno in recent weeks, the Argentine got the chance to line-up in one of the most famous fixtures in world football on Saturday, helping Arsenal defeat Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley to lift the FA Cup for the 14th time in their rich and colourful history. Having fallen behind to Christian Pulisic's fifth-minute opener, it looked as though Mikel Arteta's side were set for a long afternoon. However, the Gunners drew themselves level when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang tucked away a 28th-minute penalty after being hauled down inside the penalty area by Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta.
