The FA Cup final will be a London derby after Arsenal eclipsed Man City to follow Chelsea into the May fixture at Wembley...

"Although Arsenal are one of only six teams to have beaten Chelsea this season, Conte's side are top of the league and are justified favourites at [1.63]. Arsenal trade at [2.48]."

Chelsea will face Arsenal in the FA Cup final following a come-from-behind extra time win for Arsene Wenger's side at Wembley today.

After a goalless first-half the game sprung into life when Sergio Aguero fired City ahead midway through the second 45.

City looked set fair for the final only to be pegged back by a rare Nacho Monreal finish.

That sent the match into extra time when Alexis Sanchez was the man to break the deadlock, landing backers of the extra time Arsenal victory a winning bet at [6.4]. City came close to equalising through Fabian Delph and Kevin de Bruyne but Pep Guardiola's side could not find a way through. This will be a trophy-less season for the former Barcelona and Bayern manager.

So it's Arsenal who meet Chelsea in the final, Antonio Conte's side having got the better of Spurs by a 4-2 scoreline in Saturday's dramatic semi-final. The Blues' manager sprung a surprise by leaving Eden Hazard and Diego Costa on the bench but brought the pair on in the second-half to change the game around.

With the game locked at 2-2 Hazard fired Chelsea ahead and then laid the ball off for Nemanja Matic's screamer to end the match as a contest.

Although Arsenal are one of only six teams to have beaten Chelsea this season, Conte's side are top of the league and are justified favourites at [1.63]. Arsenal trade at [2.48].
