Arsenal beat City to reach FA Cup final with Chelsea

Arsenal sealed their place in the FA Cup final with a 2-1 victory over Manchester City yesterday and Arsene Wenger had some positive comments to share after the result.

The Gunners face a battle to qualify for the Champions League, as they now sit seventh and seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City.

Guardiola's side wasted their chance to reach the final as poor finishing and sloppy defending allowed Arsenal to come from behind and snatch a 2-1 victory in extra-time on Sunday.

Arsenal will play in the FA Cup Final for the third time in four season and will face Chelsea at Wembley for an exciting London derby. But it's perhaps the former Wanderers youngster's quality in possession that made him so effective on the left of Arsenal's back three - and suggests he's got a bright future ahead at top level. They played long balls to (Olivier) Giroud, and used the counter attack with the quality of their players, set-pieces they are a tall team and they beat us.

Wenger said in February that he would decide on a new deal in March or April and later revealed "I know what I will do" and "you will soon know".

But for once Arsenal rose to the challenge, showing unexpected levels of grit and determination as they drew level through Nacho Monreal before Alexis Sanchez grabbed the victor in extra-time. "That's important so we can find the calmness in our play again".




Those punters eyeing an Arsenal bet via a Get Lucky voucher code, will consider the prospect of the Gunners ending the season with silverware, after another Wembley success last weekend. "Every FA Cup final is special in itself and, obviously, I'll play against a team where I had huge success and spent so many wonderful years".

"It will give us a bit more confidence and convince everybody with the right togetherness we can take on anybody", added Wenger.

After the game, he said to BBC Sport: "People have questioned us a lot recently".

Reports claim United have put Sanchez on their wishlist while City boss Pep Guardiola is understood to be keeping tabs on the situation.

"I think the most important thing [against City] was the discipline of the whole team and the effort".
