Arsenal will face Chelsea in the English FA Cup final after the Gunners qualified for their 20th final by defeating Manchester City 2-1in the semi-final on Sunday at Wembley.

The Gunners also reached their third FA Cup final in four seasons, winning the trophy in 2013/2014 and 2014/2015.

Alexis Sanchez scored the winner 11 minutes into extra-time.

Sergio Aguero gave Manchester City the lead in the 62nd minute but Nacho Monreal’s right-foot finish from close range beat Claudio Bravo for the Gunners equaliser.

Nigeria forward Kelechi Iheanacho replaced Raheem Sterling in the 105th minute of the encounter while Super Eagles winger Alex Iwobi was an unused substitute. It could have been Iwobi’s ninth FA cup appearance for the Gunners.

Chelsea qualified for the final when they thrashed league rivals, Tottenham Hotspurs 4-2 at the English National Stadium on Saturday evening.

A double from Willian supported by Eden Hazard’s brilliant second half strike plus a stunner from Nemaja Matic sealed the day as the Blues worked not to make Harry Kane and Dele Alli’s goals irrelevant.
