Aubameyang stuns City as Arsenal reach record 21st FA Cup final

Chelsea advanced to the final of the FA Cup after defeating Manchester United 3-1 in the semi-final on Sunday evening.

Diving to his left, De Gea let Mason Mount's long-range strike go through his gloves.

The Red Devils goalkeeper was arguably at fault for at least two of the goals that Manchester United conceded at Wembley in what proved a hard game for the Spaniard.

"I'm thinking it [no crowd] may have helped him because in recent weeks I think the Arsenal crowd would have been on his back and I don't know how he would have reacted to that".

"I don't care who plays, I can trust them". Get a taxi back to Manchester.

City began this week with a significant victory off the field as the Court of Arbitration for Sport overturned their two-year ban from UEFA competitions, finding allegations of Financial Fair Play violations to be either "not established" or "time-barred" under regulations set out by European football's governing body.

"We need that mindset to try and secure the top four". Shocking. I am disgusted.

De Gea will be glad ex-United captain Roy Keane was not on television duty after his claims during the Tottenham match that he would be "fighting" the shot-stopper in the dressing room if he continued to make such basic blunders. "But obviously if he can see that success & the direction we are taking is the right one, I think he will be more positive about it yes". We were on top and when they changed their system we were even better. This is middle of the goal.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer responded by throwing on Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood, but a Maguire own goal - under pressure from Antonio Rudiger - made it 3-0.

"Roy was a fantastic midfielder, a good friend of mine, but I'm not sure he would have stopped [Steven Bergwijn's shot] either", Solskjaer joked per Goal. He once carved open City's defence to thread a pass to Aubameyang, who shot straight at goal, and generally looked good on the ball while winning everything in the air. We were humble, we understood the way we had to play and we took the opportunities to score. Harry Maguire had a awful game, which was summed up when, under pressure from Antonio Rüdiger, the captain diverted a Marcos Alonso cross past De Gea for Chelsea's third.

There was a long stoppage time in the first stanza after head injury to Eric Bailly, who was replaced by Martial on the stroke of half-time but the Blues took the lead in the 11th minute of added time through Olivier Giroud, who turned home Cesar Azpilicueta's cross.

Chelsea were well-drilled and clearly a little fresher, with Frank Lampard's side deserving of a result that could not be marred by Bruno Fernandes' late consolation from the penalty spot.
