Arsène Wenger said that he was hoping Arsenal would avoid Chelsea in the FA Cup Final after both London clubs won their semi-finals at the weekend.
“You always meet good teams at this stage of the competition,” said the Arsenal manager, “but I would prefer not to get Chelsea in the draw.”
Having overcome pre-tournament favourites Sutton and Lincoln, Arsenal defeated Manchester City 2-1 in extra time on Sunday while Chelsea beat Spurs 4-2 in the other semi-final on Saturday.
A disgruntled Arsenal supporter was not impressed.
“It’s typical of Wenger. We want to get rid of him and he keeps on getting us into the FA Cup Final, so he has to stay on as manager for even longer.”
