Fans of Arsenal have this evening taken to Twitter in their droves to poke fun at Alexis Sanchez, after Manchester United fell to FA Cup final defeat at the hands of Chelsea.

Matchup

The two sides went head to head at Wembley, in the final fixture of the English football calendar this season.

Both clubs came into proceedings desperate to clinch their first silverware of the campaign, after Manchester City claimed the Carabao Cup back in February, before sauntering to the Premier League title last month.

The early exchanges at Wembley this evening saw little between the sides, with Chelsea just shading things in terms of chances created.

And it was the Blues who then went on to take the lead with 22 minutes on the clock, when a long ball from Cesc Fabregas was brilliantly latched onto by Eden Hazard, with the Belgian leaving Phil Jones in his wake as he burst through one on one with David De Gea.

From here, Jones made a last-ditch attempt to wrap an outstretched leg around Hazard to get a touch on the ball, but only succeeded in tripping Chelsea’s star man up, resulting in a penalty.

Hazard subsequently stepped up and slotted home the ensuing spot-kick with ease, sending David De Gea the wrong way.

And that was all she wrote in terms of goalscoring on the day, with United, despite holding the vast majority of the possession over the course of the 2nd-half, having struggled to carve out clear-cut opportunities, and deservedly fallen to defeat.

One set of fans who extracted particular enjoyment from the struggles and eventual loss of the Red Devils this evening were the Arsenal faithful, who have taken to social media in absolute numbers since the full-time whistle at Wembley to poke fun at former Gunners’ star Alexis Sanchez, after the Chilean forced through a move to Old Trafford in January:
