Not sure when was the last time Arsenal fans saw such commitment and determination from their players as evident against the FA Cup final win against Chelsea yesterday.
The Gunners faithful would probably be telling their children one day about the defensive masterclass witnessed from the trio of Per Mertesacker, Rob Holding and Nacho Monreal.
And it was perfectly summed up this simultaneous block by the newly formed defensive partnership as they put their bodies on the line after Diego Costa attempted a shot on goal early in the first half.
