Arsenal have "found confidence" with three-man defence - Laurent Koscielny

01 May, 2017, 19:25 | Author: Felix Jensen

Arsene Wenger claims that his Arsenal side have answered their critics with a great mental and technnical display to defeat Manchester City to reach the FA Cup final.

While City were losing at Wembley, United beat Burnley to close the gap on their fourth placed rivals to just one point in the race to qualify for the Champions League.

The Gunners beat Manchester City 2-1 to reach a third FA Cup final in four years and Wales global Ramsey wants to win the trophy for Wenger.

Arsenal will play Premier League leaders Chelsea in the final on May 27 as they look to mark their record 20th FA Cup showpiece appearance by winning the tournament for the third time in the last four years.

The victory on Sunday means Arsenal have registered back-to-back wins for the first time since January, following a miserable run of form in the league.

"He has the individual quality to make the difference", said Wenger.

"When he plays on the flank he is more of a provider".

Judge, Severino carry Yankees past Red Sox
Paxton hurled seven shutout innings, allowing just four hits and one walk while striking out nine in his third win of the season. Dellin Betances worked a ideal eighth and Aroldis Chapman got the final three outs for his fifth save despite giving up a run.

City dominated and Sergio Aguero had a seemingly good goal disallowed in the first half after Leroy Sane's cross was ruled to have drifted out of play before falling to the Argentinian.

Chilean Sanchez then grabbed the victor by stabbing the ball past City keeper Claudio Bravo to send fans and teammates alike into delirium to keep alive Arsenal's hopes of finishing a frustrating season with a trophy.

In the short term at least, Arsenal's progress to the final might buy Wenger some welcome breathing space amid constant calls for his resignation from angry fans frustrated at their team's struggles in recent years. When I don't win the games I feel sad because I don't feel that I give what people want. "If (we) talk about the referee the FA is going to come in for the punishment if we think like that, but I think I need to sleep and rest and forget this game".

But in commending Sanchez's performance against City, Wenger vowed he'd at minimum see out his contract and hopefully expand his price. "This victory has allowed us to regain confidence and keep calm, even if not everything was flawless".

"I'm not sure how many points it will take (to stay up) and the weekend proved that..."

In arguably Arsenal's biggest game of the season, Wenger's men dug deep and fought for the victory.
