FT (AET): Arsenal 2-1 Manchester City

ARSENAL ARE THROUGH TO THE FINAL OF THE FA CUP!
...
120' OFFSIDE! The pressure is released on Arsenal as Iheanacho is caught offside. 1 minute of injury time!
...
119' Mesut Ozil takes his time while coming off to be replaced by Francis Coquelin, as Arsenal run down the clock.
...
118' SHOT! Yaya Toure attempts to create some magic, bending the ball into the top corner, but his radar is off and the ball flashes wide of the post.
...
117' Ozil wastes another chance on the counter, tumbling to the ground when tackled by Sane in the box.
...
116' Arsenal have had a couple of chances on the counter-attack, with Bellerin and Ozil asking for some very optimistic penalties.
...
115' OOOH! De Bruyne takes an early shot from a narrow angle on the right side of the box, and the ball flashes inches wide of the far post.
...
113' Arsenal get some breathing space, earning a throw-in after a spell of City pressure. The Gunners have to hold out for another 7 minutes and a place in the FA Cup final is theirs.
...
111' WHAT A CHANCE!!! Man City set off on the counter-attack, and De Bruyne spreads it to Delph in space on the left, and with the goal at his mercy, his shot is blocked by Bellerin's toes for a corner.

City are unable to create a clear-cut chance from the subsequent set-piece. 
...
108' City have a free-kick on the left edge of the box, with Yaya Toure stepping up to take it. Can he produce some magic?
...
107' City have all of the possession, but Arsenal have 9 men behind the ball to thwart any ball forward. Delph gets frustrated and lets fly from 30 yards, with it ball trickling well wide of the post.
...
106' AND WE'RE OFF! Man City get us underway in the final 15 minutes of the game!
...
Iheanacho comes on for Man City, replacing Raheem Sterling - this is historic, as he is the fourth substitute for Man City today.
...
ET (HT): Arsenal 2-1 Manchester City
...
105+2' WHAT A CHANCE! Ozil puts in a peach of a ball from the right wing, but Danny Welbeck screws his header over the post
...
105+1' Hector Bellerin comes on to replace Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who gets a standing ovation. The Spaniard's haircut, on the other hand, deserves none.
...
104' HANDBAGS! The two sides gather to exchange a few shoves off the ball, with the Man City players reacting in frustration. Fabian Delph goes into the book for reacting badly to Xhaka and Ramsey.
...
102' Toure goes into the book for dissent.
...
101' WHO ELSE BUT ALEXIS SANCHEZ?! The free kick is sent to the far post, and the ball makes its way to Danny Welbeck, who mis-controls the ball, and Alexis pounces on the rebound, to tap home from two yards!

Arsenal 2-1 Manchester City
...
101' GOOOAAAL ALEXIS SANCHEZ
...
100' Danny Welbeck earns a foul on the left wing, troubling Vincent Kompany with a quick shuffle of his feet. Arsenal have a free kick on the left wing.
...
99' There is a break in play, as Manchester City bring on Fabian Delph and Fernando for Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho
...
96' Arsenal earn a corner after excellent work from Welbeck and Alexis on the right side of the box causes chaos.

CHANCE! Holding rises high from the corner and heads the ball over the bar at the near post, with the goal at his mercy!
...
95' OOOOH! Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sets off on another one of those raiding runs down the right wing, before delivering a great cross into the box, where Ramsey can't rise high enough to get enough power on his glancing header.
...
93' Man City have controlled the ball right from the off, with Leroy Sane sent clear down the left, only for Gabriel to come across and bail out Oxlade-Chamberlain.
...
91' PEEP PEEP PEEP! Arsenal get us underway, kicking off from right to left
...
ET: The players have stretched and kept warm, with the first period of extra time coming up.

Just a reminder that we have an extra substitute available in extra time.
...
FT: Arsenal 1-1 Manchester City

We head to extra time.
...
90+2' Man City have all of the ball going into the final few minutes. Can they capitalize?

It seems as though they can't, with City giving a cheap free-kick away.
...
90' 3 minutes of injury time.
...
90' OOOH! Toure plays a lovely through ball to Sane, who is sent free on the left side of the box, but Arsenal recover to shelter the ball off him.
...
88' Yaya Toure has attempted to dribble into the Arsenal box twice in two minutes, with it nearly coming off both times.
...
86' WHAT A CHANCE!!! Danny Welbeck does superbly to get past Otamendi from a long ball, before hammering a shot narrowly over the bar from a rapidly closing angle.
...
84' Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has been superb so far, takes a heavy touch on the right wing, and a promising move breaks down for Arsenal. It's hard to predict a winner here - both sides look like scoring.
...
83' Olivier Giroud comes off to be replaced by Danny Welbeck
...
82' GREAT TACKLE! De Bruyne sends a slide rule pass destined for Sane, but Gabriel slides in to prevent him getting a touch and concedes a corner.

OFF THE POST! Fernandinho heads De Bruyne's delivery straight onto the crossbar!
...
80' WHAT A WASTE! Mesut Ozil is sent clear with a ball over the top, but he opts to cut inside on his left foot in the box and is crowded out. End-to-end stuff at the moment!
...
79' OFF THE POST!!! Yaya Toure hammers an incredible bouncing volley that looks destined for the bottom corner, but Cech gets his fingertips on the ball to divert the ball onto the post!
...
76' Man City nearly find a way through, as Yaya Toure plays a pass forward to Aguero, but it is overhit, with Cech collecting. The Sky Blues have dominated possession in recent minutes. This game has been a slow-burner, but we're headed for a blockbuster finish.
...
74' Sane finds himself in space on the left side of the box, but no City player is in support when the German youngster sends in a good cross.
