Arsenal defender Holding on empty Wembley: We could hear Wright shouting!

Arsenal defender Rob Holding admits he could see Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was about to drop the FA Cup trophy.

Aubameyang dropped the Cup after scoring twice to beat Chelsea in the final.

Holding smiled: "I saw him [Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang] walking with the bottom bit attached and I was like 'you need to take that off!' It seems the trend now anyway for people to drop the trophy...

"It took us a while to get used to how they were playing but once we got settled we grew into the first half and then Aubameyang seems to do it on the break every game. He is a our talisman and has done it all season.

"14 FA Cups is crazy. It's my second in four years! I saw on Twitter all the Arsenal fans setting up so as long as they enjoyed it...

"I was in the bottom corner and I could hear Ian Wright shouting from the studio!"
