(CNN)Arsenal came from behind to claim the FA Cup with a 2-1 victory against Chelsea thanks to a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang double at Wembley Stadium.

Chelsea took the lead after five minutes through Christian Pulisic, but Arsenal came back strongly midway through the first half when Aubameyang was brought down by Cesar Azpilicueta in the Chelsea box.

The striker converted from the penalty spot, and although Chelsea started the second period strongly, it was captain Aubameyang who gave Arsenal the lead when he found some space in the box and produced a deft chip over Willy Caballero.

In the first final ever played without fans, Chelsea started the brighter of the two sides when Mason Mount received the ball in the Arsenal box and found Olivier Giroud.

The Blues continued to attack until the first-half drinks break, after which momentum swung towards Arsenal and Aubameyang helped level the match when he surged towards the Chelsea goal and went down under Azpilicueta's challenge, burying the resulting penalty into the bottom-right-corner of Caballero's goal.

Aubameyang scored twice in his side's semifinal victory over Manchester City, and he was twice on target again in the final as he gave Arsenal the lead.

Chelsea continued to press for an equalizer despite losing Kovacic, but Arsenal held on for the win.
