Arsenal Reached FA Cup Semi Final, Defeating Hull City 2-1

Arsenal reached the FA Cup semi final after a 2-1 victory over Hull City last night at the Emirates Stadium. The come-from-back victory saw striker Robin van Persie scoring an equalizer in the 74th minute before former captain William Gallas putting the winner in the 84th minutes. Earlier, Hull City took a lead in the 13th minute when Nick Barmby scored. With this victory, Arsenal progressed into the last four of the tournament for the first time in the four seasons.

Arsenal will now face Chelsea at the Wembley Stadium on April 18 in the first semi final of FA Cup, while Manchester United takes on Everton in the second semi final on April 19. Arsenal was facing a loss even just 16 minutes off the final time and it would have been the second home defeat for Arsenal in FA Cup under the guidance of Arsene Wenger. Last time, Arsenal lost at home in FA Cup came 12 years back when they were defeated by Leeds United.

Arsenal is already out of Premier League title race and has failed to bring out any success in Carling Cup too. Though the Gunners are still active in Champions League, FA Cup seems to be the most realistic tournament where they can win silverware this season.
