“It’s Aubameyang! Who else?!” his brace sends Gunners to FA Cup final

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored both goals as Arsenal beat Man City to set up a final against either Man Utd or Chelsea next month.

Gabon forward Aubameyang produced a smart back post finish to convert Nicolas Pepe’s cross following a high-quality team move from the Gunners – which swept from one end of the pitch to another.

The former Borussia Dortmund star then capped an incredible counter-attack to settle the result in the second half.

The Gunners have won the cup in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2014, 2015 and 2017 since the turn of the century, to go with a losing finalist appearance to Liverpool in 2001.

And they will be hoping to add to their glories on August 1, against either Man Utd or Chelsea, but not just for the silverware. Victory at Wembley next month will mean they will qualify for the Europa League – to take the pressure off a last gasp surge in the Premier League.
