– Arsenal vs Man City FA Cup clash ended 2-1 in favour of the Gunners
– Aubameyang’s brace powered the North Londoners to the final of the oldest cup competition in England
– Mikel Arteta’s men await the winner of Chelsea vs Manchester United’s second semifinal clash in the final
Arsenal are through to the final of this year’s FA Cup championship following their 2-0 victory over defending champions Manchester City at Wembley Stadium.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the two goals that helped the North Londoners edge closer to winning their first title since 2017.
The Gabon international powered the Gunners ahead just 20 minutes into the game after tapping into the net a delivery from Nicolas Pepe.
Aubameyang increased his side’s tally while completing his brace in the 71st minute with Kieran Tierney claiming the assist for the second goal.
This is the second straight time Mikel Arteta’s men are beating a big team following their 2-1 victory over Premier League champions Liverpool on Wednesday, July 15.
Meanwhile, the Emirates Stadium outfit will battle the winner of Manchester United and Chelsea for the oldest cup in England.
The Gunners proved they wanted the victory more than their opponents after firing four shots on target with two of them achieving its purpose.
Arsenal reached the last four stage after beating Sheffield United 2-1 in late June while Pep Guardiola’s men outshine Newcastle in their encounter.
The North Londoners remain the most successful team in the history of the championship with 13 titles and if they win the 2020 edition, they would have increased their tally to 14.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Arsenal defender Ainsley Maitland-Niles could be on his way out of the club this summer after falling out of favour under Mikel Arteta.
Maitland-Niles has been sparingly used since the arrival of Arteta as manager at the Emirates, with the youngster struggling to hold down a regular first-team spot.
According to Mirror UK citing The Athletic, the 22-year-old feels Arteta does not trust him enough to afford him more game time.
