Published on: 17 April 2018

Arsenal are into the FA Youth Cup final after thumping Blackpool 5-0 in last night's semifinal.

Flo Balogun opened the scoring, with goals continuing to flow from captain Danny Ballard, Robbie Burton, Emile Smith-Rowe (pen) and Matthew Smith.

Arsenal will now face Chelsea in the final of the FA Youth Cup. The first leg will be held at Stamford Bridge on April 27, before the Blues make the trip to Emirates Stadium on April 30.

Smith-Rowe said afterwards: “I'm just very happy to be out there and playing. It's a great pitch and hopefully I can get more opportunities, then one day play here with the first team. It would be great.

“The lads have worked so hard and to get to the final is a massive achievement for the club. We're just really happy to get to the final and hopefully we can do ourselves justice when we play Chelsea."
