FA Cup. Arsenal will face Hull in the FA Cup final

Arsenal had a nervy semi-final and needed a penalty shoot-out to make it past Wigan Athletic to reach the FA Cup final.

It was never going to be easy for Arsene Wenger against defending champions Wigan Athletic, considering the slump of form in his team. And the Gunners were eight minutes away from disaster when Per Mertesacker netted an equalizer to put the game to extra time. Before that, Jordi Gomez put The Latics in front from penalty spot. Lukasz Fabianski excelled at pealty kicks and saved two shots. Arsenal now need to beat Hull City in the final to win to get their first trophy since 2005.

Hull City had an entertaining night against Sheffield United and proved stronger with a 5-3 win. The Tigers came from behind twice when Yannick Sagbo and Matt Fryatt denied Jose Baxter and Steven Scougall goals. Tom Huddlestone and Stephen Quinn put Hull in front but Jamie Murphy got The Blades back into the game with minutes to go in the dying time. However, David Meyler killed the game off on 93 minutes to see Hull reach the final on 17 May.
