Goals:

Delph 54'

You couldn't have asked for a better encapsulation of this season.

Liverpool started slowly, second best against a side you'd expect them to take the game to. Liverpool, debilitated by injuries, were nowhere near their strongest XI, not that we've much clue what that strongest XI is.

ASTON VILLA:

SHAY GIVEN: The deflection off Jores Okore gave him little chance to stop Philippe Coutinho's opener but the veteran had little else to do as Villa kept Liverpool at a safe distance. 7/10

LEANDRO BACUNA: Not a natural right-back and had to be aware of Raheem Sterling but kept him quiet in the first half and was bailed out by Ron Vlaar when needed in the second.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur form one of the most heated rivalries in all of the Barclays Premier League. With the two north London clubs only separated by about 4 miles, it's no wonder. Despite the fact that the supporters of these two teams thoroughly despise each other, there could very well be a scenario soon in which Spurs, and their fan base, will be sitting by their respective televisions, holding red and white pom poms.

Two goals from Alexis Sanchez sent holders Arsenal back to the FA Cup final, but Reading goalkeeper Adam Federici will have nightmares for years about Sanchez's second goal.

This was a case of deja vu for Arsenal fans as they saw their side struggle also in last season's semi-final victory, when they needed a penalty shoot-out to see off championship side Wigan.

A Fan’s perspective of a Wembley win:

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

To start at the end, so to speak, Reading pushed Arsenal all the way to the end of a classic FA Cup Semi-Final, in a game that featured two goal-keeping horrors.

The first half was notable for a slow paced, listless performance by Arsenal against an energetic hepped-up Reading who made up for their lack of technique with hard work and an energetic bending of the now acceptable ‘in their faces' style.

Tactics Column: Alexis, Ozil stoke up promising partnership

Arseblog at related • 1 view

Arsenal stuttered and spluttered their way to the FA Cup final thanks to two goals from Alexis Sanchez in a 2-1 victory. The Chilean wasn't Arsenal's best player, but he was one of the few able to find space against a resolute Reading side.

At times, in his Arsenal career so far, Alexis has felt like a player operating independently from the system, often seen hounding opponents alone, or attempting to slalom past two or three players.
