Arsenal came in for criticism last week on the back of the preparations, which were viewed in some quarters as disrespectful towards Hull City

But such preparations were justified with the nail-biting victory.

The Gunners came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 and win their first trophy since 2005, courtesy of Aaron Ramsey's late winner. Wenger's men had a terrible start as James Chester and Curtis Davies gave Hull a 2-0 lead within ten minutes. 

But Arsenal worked their way back into the game, and Santi Cazorla helped them with a brilliant free-kick in the first half. Laurent Koscielny spun the ball home to put the Gunners level, before Ramsey struck a half-volley in extra time to give Arsenal the cup.
