The current winner of the FA Cup, Manchester City, defeated Watford 6: 0 in last year’s draw.
It is noteworthy that the record holder in terms of winning the English Cup is Arsenal. The Londoners have achieved such success 13 times. Manchester United are in second place (12). Then come Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, each have won the cup eight times.
Arsenal have signed new contracts to the players.
Arsenal have extended the contracts of four players, David Luiz, Pablo Mari, Cedric Soares, and Dani Ceballos. The information is confirmed by the official website of the London club.
David Luiz moved to the “Gunners” from Chelsea last summer for 8 million euros. Despite a recent poor game, the coach and management still trusted him and left him on the team for a year.
Arsenal bought Pablo Mari from Flamengo, whose transfer cost 16 million euros. The 26-year-old defender has already signed a four-year contract with the club. Like Pablo Mari, the Portuguese winger also signed a four-year contract, whose contract with Southampton expired. It is noteworthy that Soares has not even played in the “Gunners” due to injury.
As for Dani Ceballos, a 23-year-old playmaker, he had a contract with Arsenal until June 30. The Spanish midfielder will stay at the London club until the end of the season and will return to Real Madrid right after that.
