Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta hopes his side are at the start of a trophy-rich period in their history after clinching The FA Cup by defeating Hull City in this year's Final.

One hundred and nine minutes had elapsed before Aaron Ramsey struck to make it 3-2 to complete the scoring in a thrilling match.

That was after James Chester and Curtis Davies had scored early goals for Hull and Santi Cazorla and Laurent Koscielny had struck to level things up after 90 action-packed minutes.

Arteta said: "It's unbelievable. When you go 2-0 down it is really rare to come back and win The Cup. It has been a long time and hopefully this is the start of something really good.

"The start of the match was shocking, you would never expect to start the game like but we showed the character desire and spirit of this team to put it right in the end.

"Aaron Ramsey has been the best player on the pitch when he has been fit and he was the right man to score.

"It had to come sometime. Today was the day and we have done it."
