​There were ugly scenes outside of Wembley on Sunday afternoon as Arsenal and Manchester City fans clashed after the Gunners sealed a dramatic win to book their place in this season's FA Cup final, as reported by ​The Sun.

Argentine hitman Sergio Aguero had seemingly set City on their way to a final showdown with Chelsea in May, but Arsenal full-back Nacho Monreal levelled for the misfiring Gunners before  contract rebel Alexis Sanchez sealed an extra-time winner. 

But not content with having watched their teams battle it out on the hallowed Wembley turf, rival fans set about for another bout of action, as the video below shows:

Fans of both clubs squared off with one another, despite the best efforts of intervening and well-intended fans, with punches thrown. It remains to be seen whether local police will be investigating the footage, but it surely is a sorry sight to behold. 

The defeat for Man City means that their much-heralded boss Pep Guardiola will begin his reign without a single piece of silverware this campaign, with the Citizens out of contention for both domestic and European honours. 

The victory for Arsenal meanwhile is likely to alleviate considerable pressure on manager Arsene Wenger, particularly if the Gunners can overcome Chelsea in the final,  given the plethora of criticism for the Frenchman this season. 

The north Londoners also now hold the record for the most FA Cup final appearances with 20 - one ahead of perennial contenders Man Utd, and six ahead of both Liverpool and Chelsea.
