Chelsea's Eden Hazard opens the scoring after Phil Jones gives away a penalty
Watch as Eden Hazard scores the penalty that gives Chelsea victory over Manchester United in the FA Cup final.


And that, my friends, is all from me at a still sunny Wembley.

Before you head off though...

History will be made at World Cup 2018

Then you can leave. Put BBC2 on now for MOTTY NIGHT.

There can be no finer way to cap this day of utter Britishness...

'I can't change'


One more chunk of Conte: "I think after two years the club knows me very well. The club knows me very well. If they want to continue to work with me, they know me. I can't change. I can't change.

"My way is always the same. Hard work and to build a strong mentality with my players. I can't change. I can't change. I'm this. I'm this and I think my past speaks very clear as a player and as a manager"

Antonio Conte should move into politics when he's done with football. He's managed to avoid saying if he's staying or not pretty much all season.

What do we think?

So are you staying or not?

Chelsea win the FA Cup

More from Antonio Conte: "I have a contract and I'm committed for this club. I think from the start of this season, because don't forget the speculation started after our first defeat against Burnley, my position was always the same: I'm committed for this club, despite a lot of speculation.

"One day I had the possibility to go to the national team, one day this team, one day another important team. In every press conference I always say I'm committed to this club, to respect my contract. As you know very well our job is not simple. I understand that the club can make a decision, a positive decision, a negative decision.

"I'm the first to understand. I'm the coach of a great, important club, in England and the world. It's right that the club demands of me a lot. I think you have to understand if in this season we had the maximum or not. There is also this possibility with this group of players we did the maximum. I have great respect for my club. For sure we'll make the best decision. I'm the first to accept every decision for the future. After these two seasons I will always love this colour, these fans, this club. Also if my future must be in a different way."

'I'm a serial winner'

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte: "When you are used to winning every season – don't forget I was used to winning every season – this type of season can try to create some problems in yourself.

"When you have this type of season there are moments that you have a lot of questions for yourself. But I think, also in this season, in a difficult season like this, I showed I'm a serial winner. This is the truth. To win in this way this season give me more satisfaction than my wins in the past."

Here's some Antonio Conte...

Are you staying or not?

Stat fans: Despite their seemingly different approaches, Manchester United made exactly the same number of passes in each half (293).

Transfer window = open

Leicester City

As we are still waiting for Antonio Conte to face the BBC cameras here's a bit of breaking transfer news for you.

Leicester City have agreed terms with FC Porto for the transfer of defender Ricardo Pereira.

Ricardo, 24, arrived in Leicester on Saturday to finalise personal terms on a five-year contract and complete a medical. His move to City will be complete when international transfer clearance is received on 9 June.

"I prefer to lose like we did today"

Chelsea win the FA Cup

Manchester United

More from Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho: "My opinion on my team's performance is that every defeat hurts, but for me personally the ones that hurt less is when you give everything and you go without any regrets.

"I prefer to lose like today than lose like we did at, for example, Newcastle. I leave my players happy with them. For me that's really important."

There are nine men currently mowing the Wembley pitch, another nine prodding it with forks and three dragging what look like large brooms across the surface.

How much does grass grow in 90 minutes?

'Chelsea so predictable'

Chelsea win the FA Cup

Manchester United

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho: "I think our team did a fantastic defensive job without defending. We controlled positions, transitions really well.

"They only played long balls to Giroud to flick. When you play against a team so predictable it's quite easy to adapt to it. I thought we wouldn't concede any goal in this match. But of course Hazard is a very good player and he created a penalty."

That Thibaut Courtois save from Marcus Rashford was a big moment. Great stop.

The only fans still inside the stadium are a tiny pocket down near the pitch which I presume are friends and family of the Chelsea players.

DSS Brooks: Let’s be honest, it was a poor final from two joyless teams with the winner being the better at sucking the life out of the game.

Sho Rahman: Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez need to go. Marcus Rashford needs to man up but more importantly Jose Mourinho needs to look at himself and the brand of football we're playing. So much focus on the opposition we're pathetic in the final third.

Stop texting in, Jose...

Fish Hailu: Antonio Conte parked the bus pretty much the whole match and no one will blame him. If it was Jose Mourinho, everyone including pundits would be hammering him. Not fair and Man United didn't deserve to lose this one in 90 minutes.

Amrul Choudhury: Extremely poor season for United. Questions need to be asked of Jose Mourinho, being smug about second place and the 12 point improvement is hardly something to sing and shout about.

Zak: I love it when Jose Mourinho accuses Chelsea of defending with nine players. He made Chelsea into the original "bus parkers".

Phil Fandango: No Jose. Your team weren't the best today. The other lot were.

Mike Crew: The best thing about the Cup Final was the takeaway I ate during it.

James Ballantyne: Mourinho's reason that they lost was that United didn't have Fellaini. Oh. My.

'They didn't deserve to win'

Chelsea win the FA Cup

Manchester United

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, speaking to BBC Sport: "I congratulate them because they won but I don't think they deserved to win.

"I congratulated them. I am Manchester United manager and I have to be respectful, not just because they are my previous club but because they are the opponents today but I think we deserved to win.

"I am quite curious to know what you say or what people write because if my team plays like Chelsea did I can imagine what people would say. I am quite curious.

"It was a bit hard for us to play without Lukaku against a team that defends with nine players. You need that presence. Every defeat hurts but I go home with the feeling we gave everything. No regrets.

"Chelsea are not stupid. They know our team without Lukaku or Fellaini does not have a presence so putting eight or nine players in front of the box they knew they would be dominant in that direct football. We tried everything by other ways but they had a huge block of compacted players.

"The image of the game is that David de Gea did not touch the ball. He touched the ball to grab it in the net."

David Luiz! Genuinely forgot he still played for Chelsea.

'A magical moment'

Sean Dyche

Burnley manager on BBC Radio 5 live

It is a magic moment for Chelsea. There are a lot of big players that have never had a final or a win like this. You can see it is a magical moment, you can see that with the players, fans and the manager.

'Conte goes away a winner'

Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

Alan Shearer

Former Newcastle striker on BBC One

A very successful spell for their manager who looks increasingly likely that he will not be there next season. He goes away a winner.

That is a tough club to manage, but a Premier League and a FA Cup is a good return.

'The FA Cup is a massive, massive thing'

Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

Sean Dyche

Burnley manager on BBC Radio 5 live

The big thing everyone talks about is the Champions League, but this is still a trophy and a big trophy - the FA Cup is a massive, massive thing. These Chelsea fans will take this home and it means a lot.

Antonio Conte is giving little away as he strides back out onto the pitch for the fireworks and photo opps.

Does he look like a man who may be saying goodbye? No, but realistically I don't know what that would look like. Apart from Jose Mourinho at the 2004 and 2010 Champions League finals...

'A well deserved victory'

Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd


Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas speaking to BBC Sport: "It hasn't been the best of seasons. Sometimes these things happen - look at all these people singing, it's important to finish on a high.

"It was important to keep it tight. We were compact and disciplined and it was a well deserved victory."

This may very well be a debate for another day but has Alexis Sanchez made Manchester United a better team or not?

'Sanchez didn't create anything'

Robbie Savage

Ex-Leicester City & Wales midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

I thought Alexis Sanchez was on the periphery, he didn't create anything. Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford were unlucky to have been taken off.

Chelsea lift the trophy!

As 'Lust for life' booms out across a half full Wembley and the smell of cordite lingers in the air, Gary Cahill hoists the trophy aloft!

He has to push Willy Caballero out of the way in the end. Back-up keepers LOVE a trophy don't they? Almost as much as JT.

If United had played like Chelsea and got that result everyone would be talking about Jose Mourinho parking a bus. But Antonio Conte does it and nothing.

Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois speaking to BBC Sport: "All season has been long, especially speculation about everything.

"Man City were amazing but we slipped away from the top four. It's better to finish with a trophy."
