English Football Club Arsenal after claiming a remarkable victory with 2-0 against Manchester City, has now reached that FA cup final.
According to media reports, Arsenal will face Chelsea or Manchester United, who meet in the other semi-final on Sunday, in the final at Wembley on August 1.
Arsenal Coach Mikel Arteta said “We have great chemistry, they really believe in what we are trying to do and you can sense that. They deserve it.”
“To beat the best you need to take your opportunities and when you have to defend you have to put everybody on the line. I’m extremely happy and proud of our players, but it’s very sad we cannot enjoy this moment with our fans,” he added.
Manchester City, unbeaten in their previous 22 domestic cup ties, were well short of their best.
Manchester City manager Josep Guardiola said that “We didn’t play good. The only regret is not to lose the game, that can happen, but it is that we did not play the first half like we play the second,”
