Arsenal have beaten England’s best two teams in the space of four days after defeating Manchester City to book yet another FA Cup final ticket.
The most successful team in the competition, Arsenal lined out against the Citizens on the back of an impressive defeat of Liverpool a few days ago. It was Mikel Arteta’s second game against his former boss, Pep Guardiola.
The Gunners took an early in the 19th minute lead through star striker and skipper, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang after an 18-pass move. In the 71st minute, Aubameyang doubled Arsenal’s lead after a deft pass from Kieran Tierney further depleted a loose offside trap from City.
Manchester City had just a shot on target in the entire 97 minutes with David Luiz posting a very solid performance in the encounter.
Arsenal will face winner of the the second semi final encounter between Manchester United and Chelsea.
