Alexis Sanchez struck an extra-time winner as Arsenal came from behind to beat Manchester City 2-1 in their FA Cup semifinal at Wembley.
Sergio Aguero had put City ahead with a fine breakaway goal just after the hour having had another strike controversially ruled out — but Nacho Monreal equalised for Arsenal.
City twice hit the woodwork in the latter stages of normal time through Yaya Toure and Fernandinho but Sanchez, recently linked with City, pounced for a 101st-minute winner after a goalmouth scramble.
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.
The Gunners will now meet Chelsea in the final on a yet to be announced date.
