And the adventure goes on.
After a disastrous run of games of late that have seen the assault on the league fade and fade with a record, under Wenger, of four consecutive away defeats, Arsenal were definitely underdogs on Sunday in this semi-final.
In the League trailing their opponents by a considerable margin, the one-off match to reach the final was a different ball game, to coin a phrase.
After a dreadful mistake allowed Manchester Oil Barons to go ahead in the first half. The Arsenal players managed to rally themselves and equalise through Monreal.
The game went into 30 minutes extra time before Sanchez scored to win the game.
The final beckons on May 27th.
