The fixture was very much a game of two halves, with Chelsea taking ultimate control in the first 45 minutes, while Arsenal's persistence was the overriding force of the second.

Getting his head to a Mesut Ozil corner, Nacho Monreal saw his effort come off Marcos Alonso before rebounding a second time, this time in a totally different direction off the head of Antonio Rudiger, before flying into the Chelsea goal.

Alex Iwobi had a golden chance to seal the win with about a quarter of an hour to go but Caballero made a fine save to keep Chelsea in the tie. "In this competition we had a good run this season and we had great desire to play at Wembley".

Wenger joked with journalists in his pre-match press conference for the match at Emirates Stadium by saying the press "celebrate some teams who have not been in a final for 25 years", referencing Arsenal's three FA Cup triumphs in the last four seasons. "We know we have to deal with it now". "Even in this case, we go from one cup to another and we have to look forward and go for it and get a win, too, for confidence".

The Argentinian added: "For me, he (Wenger) is and will always be one of the best managers in the world, I respect him, but I think he needs to talk for himself and for Arsenal".

It was their second consecutive win following their 4-1 demolition of Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday (20 January).

But Conte's men, lacking a cutting edge, could not find the inspiration they needed to take the game into extra-time and Arsenal held on to claim a deserved victory.

"My thoughts are disappointment for the final result", said Conte. "I'm the coach. My task is to try to do the best for this club, to try to improve my players for this club".

"We tried to reach the final". I continue to work with my players.

Unlike the 2011 final, when Arsenal were the overwhelming favourites to beat Birmingham, the north London outfit will be the underdogs against City. "He's the most important player for Arsenal at the moment and he's got to make the team tick".

Conte downplayed the severity of the Willian injury, saying: "I don't think we are talking about a serious injury".
