Arsenal have cruised to the FA Cup final after edging past Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City with a 2-1 win. The North-Londoners will meet their city rivals and the Premier League leaders, Chelsea in the final who thumped Tottenham 4-2 in the first semi-final yesterday.
The two London outfits will take on each other in five weeks time at Wembley with Wenger hoping to resurrect his Arsenal’s job whereas Conte will be aiming to add his first laurel on his debut season.

Arsenal were down and out in the second semi-final as Sergio Aguero’s goal put Man City up front early in the second half, but Monreal level the terms shortly after with his first goal of the season for Arsenal. The tie went into the extra-time as both sides were on level terms until the 90th minute. Alexis Sanchez put the Arsenal through with a clean finish late in the extra-time. Man City tried hard to bounce back with back to back efforts but all in vein.

The win can be a turning point in Arsene Wenger’s career and can prolong his Arsenal job. Anyhow, Gunners are through to the FA Cup final and will have the challenge of in-form Chelsea when the two sides collide on 27th May 2017.
