[Video Goals] Arsenal 2-1 Man City: Sanchez The Hero As Gunners Book Final Spot

By on April 23, 2017

Arsenal will play Chelsea in the final of the FA Cup next month after coming from behind to beat Manchester City 2-1 at Wembley this afternoon.

Both sides had decent penalty shouts during the first half as Sergio Aguero and Alexis Sanchez went down under challenges while Raheem Sterling had a goal wrongly ruled out after the linesman adjudged the ball had gone out from a Leroy Sane cross.

City then broke the deadlock midway through the second half when Aaron Ramsey gifted Pep Guardiola’s side possession and a swift break led to Aguero racing clear to chip over Petr Cech – although the Arsenal keeper should have done better.

Arsenal levelled things up minuted later as Nacho Monreal crashed home a lovely right-footed volley at the far post following a superb cross from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the 71st minute.

There were no further goals in the ninety minutes so it went to extra-time and Alexis Sanchez put Arsenal ahead for the first time in the game with a close range finish in the 101st minute.

City couldn’t find the equaliser to force penalties so Arsenal secured a 2-1 win which means they’ll take on London rivals Chelsea in the final next month.
