Arsenal beat City to reach FA Cup final with Chelsea

Arsenal will be aiming for their 13 FA Cup crown in May.

But, the Blues could be set to feature in another London derby, if Arsenal manage to defeat Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday, to set up a final clash with Chelsea.

The game will be broadcast live in the United Kingdom on BT Sport 1 but you can also follow the game here on our website or via our Matchday App. Find out where the game is being shown around the world with our global TV listings.

City striker Aguero did score for the 12th time in as many games to put City ahead just after the hour mark, but Nacho Monreal hit back with his first goal in over two years.

"I am very proud of our performance and of the spirit we have shown - I believe we gave a good answer to people who questioned that [spirit]", Wenger said to BT Sport.

The result gave Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, an FA Cup victor six times, a welcome boost in a season that many supporters would like to be his last at the club.

Arsenal's victory vindicated under-pressure Arsene Wenger's decision to play with three at the back for the second time in a week - but they were outplayed for large spells early on.
