It was a neck-to-neck competition between both sides making chances and playing beautiful football but the Arsenal goal keeper proved out to be the savior for his team. Arsenal took the lead through Carlos Vela strike on a low cross from Walcott. Later on Arsenal kept building the pressure through Tomas Rosicky, Theo Walcott and Wilshere. However the away side was not merely spectators. They produced some great chances which were denied by Manuel Almunia who made some extravagant series of saves to re-claim the cup for his team.
Later on in the match, Arsenal put the ball 3 times inside the net but the Celtic side tried to cling on as they scored 2 goals. Till the last minute the both sides tried their best but the result at the final whistle remained 3 – 2.
