London - Chelsea beat Everton 2-1 to win the 2009 FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium here on Saturday.

Frenchman Louis Saha scored the fastest-ever goal in an FA Cup final, in just 25 seconds, to give Everton the lead before Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba equalised for Chelsea in the 21st minute.

The match between the Premier League rivals remained all square until the 72nd minute when Chelsea's England midfielder Frank Lampard scored his 20th goal of the season despite Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard getting both hands to the ball.
