Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may get the credit for inspiring Arsenal to a 2-1 FA Cup win over Chelsea in the final at Wembley on Saturday, but a major talking point has been referee Anthony Taylor's performance.

Chelsea fans were left fuming after Taylor failed to by penalise Arsenal 'keeper Emiliano Martinez after he came out of his box to collect a ball. The Blues supporters were upset further when there was no rectification by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).
