Arsenal to meet Chelsea in FA cup final

Arsenal are through to the finals of the 2017 FA Cup. The gunners as they are fondly called by their fans defeated Manchester City by 2-1 after extra time. Alexis Sanchez’s scored winner in the first half of extra time after both teams played out 1-1 at full time.

Arsenal showed great resilience to come from behind after Sergio Aguero raced clear of Nacho Monreal to put City ahead in the 62nd minute.

The Spanish full-back made amends with the equaliser 11 minutes later as he drilled in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s cross at the far post.

The win is a big let off for Arsene Wenger, the French Arsenal Manager who has come under intense pressure after a poor run of results. Arsenal will now meet Chelsea in the finals on the 27 May at the Wembley stadium with the hope of a record seventh FA Cup triumph.
