Arsenal's players had one word on their minds after the win over Manchester United: Wembley.
Several of the stars and squad members used Twitter after the 2-1 FA Cup quarter-final victory at Old Trafford, to express their delight at such a momentous win.
The victory was topped off by more positive news as Arsenal avoided a potential semi-final against Liverpool, being drawn instead against the winner of Bradford City and Reading.

Arsenal won through goals from Nacho Monreal and Danny Welbeck, with Wayne Rooney netting a first half equaliser for the home side.
United had more possession during the game (57%), but it was Arsenal who were more dangerous, landing eight shots on target to the Red Devils' five.
With Wojciech Szczesny looking shaky early on, Arsenal were there to be attacked, but United simply could not get their game going, and positive signs of improvement from Angel di Maria were cut down when he was sent off midway through the second half.
