Man City make history in FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal

Both clubs have failed to meet expectations in the league and in Europe and hope to salvage something of their campaign by making it to the historic and prestigious FA Cup final.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "It's an opportunity to win a trophy this season".

Arsene Wenger's men were put on the back foot when Sergio Aguero broke the deadlock in the second half but found an equaliser through the unlikely source of Nacho Monreal less than 10 minutes later.

Sanchez has been a problem for Wenger with his mood swings this season and he was well below his best for long periods once again.

Fans gave Lineker a mixed reaction to the tweet, with one writing: "Omg wenger might stay & Arsenal will win the prem".

Sergio Aguero reminded Guardiola of exactly what he is capable of at Wembley, with his superb run and deft chip putting City ahead.


Arsenal could still lift their third FA Cup in four seasons and secure a Champions League qualification spot, and Wenger said: "When you have negative results like we had, it can divide or unite". The Gunners know how to win these big games and I think that this trend will continue.

"We competed here, we had more chances but the finishing was like it has been throughout the season". "All players that go there and start training with them realise immediately they can not compete, they will always be below [Messi]. And people wanted us to win a trophy, or questioned us about winning a trophy".

He said: "I am a better manager not because I am in the Premier League or in English football, but because I have lost more games than in my recent past. You have to show you can fight together", said Wenger.

City trail league leaders Chelsea, who beat Tottenham Hotspur 4-2 in Saturday's semi-final, by 11 points with six games to play going into a big game on Thursday against local rivals Manchester United, who are fifth, one point behind them.

Sterling smashed home a rebound off Petr Cech in the first-half - but the ball was ruled to have drifted out of play beforehand from Leroy Sane's cross.

With fourth placed City well adrift of leaders Chelsea, boss Pep Guardiola is destined to finish his first season empty-handed.
