Chelsea beat Man United in FA Cup final

Didier Drogba scored an extra-time winner to give Chelsea a 1-0 victory over league champions Manchester United in the first FA Cup final at the new Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

The Ivorian striker scooped the ball past United keeper Edwin van der Sar in the 116th minute of a dour encounter that looked destined for penalties in front of a near 90,000 crowd.

Drogba's 33rd goal of the season denied United a Premier League and FA Cup double and gave Chelsea a second trophy after February's League Cup success against Arsenal in Cardiff.

It will also lift a club after a season in which injuries and speculation about the future of manager Jose Mourinho had dogged their attempts to win a third consecutive league title.
