Guardiola's 1st season at Man City to end without a trophy

Guardiola's 1st season at Man City to end without a trophy

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "It's an opportunity to win a trophy this season".

But he is faced with having to lift his shattered players for a crucial derby against Manchester United on Thursday as the battle to finish in the Premier League's top four hots up.

After Sergio Aguero had opened the scoring in the 62nd minute, his 30th goal of the campaign, the Gunners grabbed an equaliser ten minutes later when Nacho Monreal netted before Alexis Sanchez hit the victor in extra time.

ARSENE WENGER hailed his "animal" Cup hero Alexis Sanchez and insisted he WILL be at Arsenal next season.

The 28-year-old flew out of the blocks with 11 goals in his first six appearances, concluding a phenomenal hot streak with a brace in a 3-1 win at Swansea City.

Welbeck missed Koscielny's knock-down from a corner but Sanchez pounced to take a touch and fire in from close range, the Chile global starring in an FA Cup semi-final again having netted twice against Reading in 2015.

Trailing to Sergio Aguero's second half goal, Arsenal were on the verge of another dispiriting loss in a troubled season after being out-played for long periods.

Huge controversy as City have the ball in the net through Sterling, who is first to react after Aguero's shot is saved by Cech, but the linesman says Sane's cross, from which Aguero was shooting, went out of play.

In a much livelier second half Toure robbed Aaron Ramsey and sent Aguero away from the halfway line for the Argentine to dink the ball past Cech for his 12th goal in as many games. They got the first big call correct when Laurent Koscielny's header was ruled out for offside but then came two questionable decisions.

The opening goal came just after the hour as City broke from deep following an Arsenal corner.

City nearly hit back immediately, with Toure's 25-yard volley pushed onto a post by Cech before Fernandinho headed against the crossbar from Kevin de Bruyne's corner.

Sanchez gave Arsenal the lead when he drilled home from close range in the 101st minute.

Rob Holding headed narrowly over and moments after City surprisingly, but perhaps because of injury, took Aguero off the Londoners snatched what proved the victor.

Wenger said: "Alexis Sanchez was like the team, he had problems to start with and became stronger and stronger".
