The Welsh midfielder claimed the winner as Arsenal came from two-goals behind before claiming a 3-2 extra-win over Hull City.

Ramsey's winner came just 11 minutes before penalties would have been needed as he swept the ball home following a neat back-heel from Olivier Giroud.

"It is mind blowing, I dreamt about this day as a kid and it hasn't quite sunk in yet," he told Sky Sports.

"I am more delighted for the team that we have won a trophy this year, we deserved it and the manager deserved it, he has stuck by his players after we were questioned a few times but he never had any doubt and we believed in it ourselves and hopefully this will be the start of many.

"I couldn't do this without my team-mates and I am delighted to be in this team."

Ramsey admits that getting back into the game quickly through Santi Cazorla after going two-behind - was crucial.

"We knew ourselves that Santi Cazorla's free kick was important and we had time to get back into the game but I thought we were in control," he said.

"In extra-time at 2-2, things go through your mind like penalties but it is important to keep going and I managed to get into the box and get that one."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
