FA Cup final: Aubameyang's winner for Arsenal has been dubbed with Titanic soundtrack


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the difference between Arsenal and Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Christian Pulisic had given Chelsea a 5th-minute lead but the Gunners knew they always had a chance with Aubameyang in their side.

And that proved to be the case half an hour into the game as he outpaced Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta and was hauled down in the penalty area.

Aubameyang picked himself up and cooly slotted it past Willy Caballero to level the scores.

But it was a moment of sheer brilliance from the Gabon International with a little more than 20 minutes remaining that won the final for the Gunners.

Hector Bellerin’s surging run forward saw the ball fall to Nicolas Pepe. He, in turn, found Aubameyang on the left side of the penalty area.


With Kurt Zouma between him and the goal, Chelsea appeared to have the situation under control.

But Aubameyang threatened to cut inside onto his right like he loves to do, shifted it onto his left and then dinked the ball beautifully over Caballero.

It was the goal that sealed the cup for Arsenal.

From that moment on, the Gunners didn’t look like throwing it away.


Arsenal fans have no doubt watched that goal back numerous times since Saturday evening.

But they may not have watched the goal winner to the soundtrack of Titanic.

It’s something we’ve seen in the past with dramatic goals being dubbed with Celine Dion’s beautiful voice.

And one Arsenal fan is going viral for doing just that.

In fact, it might sound even better with BT Sport’s commentary alongside the Titanic theme.

Check out that version:

Arsenal supporters will be hoping that isn’t Aubameyang’s final goal as an Arsenal player.

His contract expires at the end of next season and there will no doubt be plenty of major European clubs interested in the 31-year-old.

But manager Mikel Arteta is hopeful he will remain at the Emirates.


“Scoring is the most difficult thing in football," Arteta said. "He makes it look simple — look at the second goal. We have always had incredible strikers at this  club and Auba deserves to be named and compared with the big names.

“By winning trophies he will be closer to them and,  hopefully, we can have him for longer.”
