Sanchez scored a second FA Cup semi-final victor in three seasons on Sunday as his extra-time goal saw Arsenal past Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola's disappointment at his team's 2-1 defeat by Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-finals on Sunday was compounded by the news that Sergio Aguero and David Silva may now miss the derby against Manchester United on Thursday through injury.

"We've let him down at times this season", Ramsey said.

Arsenal s third FA Cup final in the last four years - they won it in 2014 and 2015 - gives them a record 20 appearances in the showpiece match of the famous old competition.

Next season we will be stronger.

After the game, he said to BBC Sport: "People have questioned us a lot recently".

"We need to keep the level of desire and hunger for every game of the season".

But in commending Sanchez's performance against City, Wenger vowed he'd at minimum see out his contract and hopefully expand his price.

Alexis' future continues to occupy space in the gossip columns of the European press but Arsene Wenger, speaking after the game, stated that the Chilean would remain at Arsenal for next season.

"I'm not sure how many points it will take (to stay up) and the weekend proved that..."
