That is about all we have time for on this FA Cup live text. We're back later with full coverage of El Clasico, as Real Madrid and Barcelona duel for the La Liga title. Until next time, goodbye.

17:38

We'll be back on 27 May to whether Chelsea will be completing a domestic double or Arsene Wenger will be ending his tenure at Arsenal with a major trophy. Another fascinating last four clash in this year's FA Cup, which has been one of the best in recent memory. And what of Guardiola? He will have questions to answer as he prepares to end the campaign empty handed.

Full time: Arsenal 2-1 Manchester City

It will be Chelsea vs Arsenal in the 2017 FA Cup final after the Gunners overcome Manchester City in extra time in the second semi-final at Wembley. Alexis Sanchez was the difference in the additional 30 minutes and outlasted Pep Guardiola's side, who will end the Spaniard's first season in England without a trophy.

17:32

One minute of added time at Wembley.

17:30

Coquelin on for Ozil with two minutes to go. City's threat has been nullified somewhat. But can they go again?

17:27

Chances at both ends as this game becomes stretched again. Danny Welbeck breaks two challenges but can't get a shot away, before De Bruyne fires just wide of Cech's goal.

17:26

Really dramatic finale in the offing at Wembley. Can Arsenal hold on? Can't help buy feel City's best chance has come and gone.

17:24

How have City not levelled there!? They develop a three on two situation and De Bruyne finds Delph, whose shot is deflected into the side-netting. Where was Raheem Sterling where you need him? On the bench, having been withdrawn.

17:22

Yaya Toure hits the Arsenal wall from a well-placed free-kick. Good chance gone for City. Just under 11 minutes remaining.

17:19

Alexis Sanchez celebrates putting Arsenal ahead for the first time.

17:17

Kelechi Iheanacho coming on for Manchester City, who of course have a fourth substitute in this extra time period. Raheem Sterling coming off having earlier replaced David Silva. Guardiola giving a very vocal team talk on the Wembley turf. Can he inspire his team to grab a leveller?

17:15

Half time [extra time]: Arsenal 2-1 Manchester City

17:15

Danny Welbeck has the chance to send Arsenal into their 20th FA Cup final but he blows it as we reach half time in extra time. How did he miss that header from six yards?

17:13

Watch Alexis Sanchez give Arsenal the lead in extra time against Manchester City.

17:11

Sergio Aguero off with a knee problem - not good news ahead of the Manchester derby - and now all the momentum is with Arsenal.

17:07

GOAL! Arsenal 2-1 Manchester City (Alexis Sanchez)

Arsenal lead for the first time in the semi-final and a 20th final beckons for Arsene Wenger. Xhaka heads down and after Welbeck miss-kicks, Sanchez reacts first and fires home from six yards. Could that be the winner? Twenty minutes to go.

17:05

But it is Fabian Delph who is coming on for Fernandinho, who is injured himself. Arsenal meanwhile should be ahead, as Rob Holding heads onto the roof of the net from a net-post header. Should he buried it.

17:04

Iheanacho warming up for City just as Oxlade-Chamberlain ghosts past Sane down the right. Looks like a no brainer of a change.

16:59

Back underway in the first half of extra time. Both sides look dead on their feet, and with tired legs come tired minds. Two changes available to Wenger and Guardiola; and they could prove significant.

16:51

Full time: Arsenal 1-1 Manchester City - extra time to be played

Sergio Aguero and Nacho Monreal goals ensure we have an extra 30 minutes at Wembley. A final place against Chelsea at stake. Fancy the game might open up further.

16:48

Three added minutes. Extra time looms.

16:48

Some concerted City pressure as they sense the chance to win it. Really has come alive this game in the last 20 minutes. From a first half talking about the officials, the football has come to the fore after the break.

16:45

Tired legs means plenty of chances at both ends. Danny Welbeck on for Arsenal to try and force a late winner. Entering the last few minutes. Is extra time imminent? Welbeck curls goalwards but misses the back post, with Ramsey and Sanchez screaming for the ball in the middle.

16:41

OFF THE BAR! City hit the woodwork for a second time in the space of four minutes since being pegged back. Fernandinho will never head a ball better and it clatters against Cech's bar. Incredible finale at Wembley.
