Frank Lampard's second-half winner gave Guus Hiddink the FA Cup in his final game as Chelsea manager after a 2-1 win over Everton at Wembley.

Everton had scored the fastest goal in the history of the cup final after just 25 seconds when Louis Saha's left-footed strike flashed past Petr Cech.

But Didier Drogba powered in a headed equaliser before the break, and Chelsea dominated the second period with Lampard's 72nd-minute winner taking the trophy.
