'I'm going to throw up' – Tottenham fans react to Arsenal reaching the FA Cup final
By Russell Edge
Tottenham fans took to social media to vent their frustrations at their north London rivals Arsenal reaching the FA Cup final.
The Gunners needed extra time to see off Manchester City 2-1 in their semi-final clash, with Alexis Sanchez finishing from close range to seal the victory at Wembley
Sergio Aguero had given Pep Guardiola’s side the lead with a deft lobbed finish in the 62nd minute, only for Nacho Monreal to hit back for the Gunners nine minutes later.
With the scores level at full time, the sides returned to the pitch to play the 30 minutes of extra time, where Sanchez struck just after 100 minutes to see Arsene Wenger’s side to the FA Cup final.
The Gunners will face Chelsea on the 27th of May, after the Blues saw off Spurs in the other semi-final.

In a pulsating match, Harry Kane and Dele Alli both equalised after Willian scored two set piece goals, before Eden Hazard scored one and set up a Nemanja Matic wonder strike to seal the Blues’ place in the final.
With the Gunners securing their place in the final, Spurs fans took to social media to show their frustration at their rivals’ success.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Surely this is the positive result Arsenal need for Wenger to announce his new contract
Trying to find a silver lining from this weekend
