Aston Villa were no match for Arsenal at Wembley as the Gunners successfully defended their FA Cup title.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol feels its time Arsenal look beyond the FA Cup for their silverware.

LONDON -- This was the kind of football that Arsene Wenger has been promising for years. This was the kind of flawless 4-0 display that wins hearts, minds and silverware. Granted, it might have been more impressive had Aston Villa not frozen in the opening exchanges and forgotten their game plan, but it was still a pleasure to watch.

"We were at it from the first minute to the last," glowed Arsene Wenger afterwards. "I never felt that the focus dropped or the quality dropped. It became comfortable...

1. Arsenal overwhelm Aston Villa

Now Arsenal are out on their own in the history books. They have won football's oldest honour, the FA Cup trophy, more often than anyone else -- their 12th FA Cup means they have overtaken Manchester United in the all-time standings. It was also Arsene Wenger's sixth, and no manager has tasted glory more often in the competition's 144-year existence.

Nathan Redmond and Norwich fully deserved their Wembley win that booked their Premier League return.

LONDON, England -- Early goals from Cameron Jerome and Nathan Redmond pushed Norwich back into the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Middlesbrough at Wembley. Here are three quick observations from the Championship playoff final.

1. Norwich are back in the Premier League

Wembley's stadium announced labeled Monday's game as "the most lucrative game in world football," rather unhelpful for those nervously lining up to play their part. As is tradition for the losing team, the gate receipts will...

LONDON -- On a day of fitting gestures and a lot of cheers, Jose Mourinho knew something was needed to add an extra thrill to it all. Chelsea had to do what they've managed in 25 other games this season, and with the title itself. They had to finish as they started. They had to win.

"We didn't want to celebrate at least without a point," Mourinho said after his side's 3-1 victory over Sunderland, champagne glass finally in hand. "Lower tempo than normal, but the qualities of our football during...

NEWCASTLE, England -- How fitting it was that Jonas Gutierrez lashed home the crucial second goal that put beyond doubt the protection of Newcastle United's Premier League status. In a year without too many positives for the club, his astonishing fight against testicular cancer has been an inspiration. On a day when a hero was needed, he was, in retrospect, the obvious candidate.

The Argentine's strike sealed the win, but there was something else on display at St. James' Park: A glimpse of what life...

Transistor radios and smartphones were tuned in, fans hopeful of positive tidings from Newcastle. Perhaps a Hull goal could provoke panic on Tyneside, but such a moment never came. Without it went any chance of survival.

Each Hull attack was roared on, right from the first-minute header that Nikica...
