Arsenal, Manchester City unchanged ahead of FA Cup semi-final clash

Everything you need to know ahead of City's FA Cup semi-final with Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger will arguably have experienced better days - winning three Premier League titles, reaching a Champions League final, and actually WINNING the FA Cup - but nobody could argue it didn't all come together for the Arsenal manager this weekend.

The video, which was shot from a higher vantage point, can be seen in full below.

Many Arsenal supporters still want to see him step down when his contract expires this summer, although he insisted on Friday that the result at Wembley won't have an effect on his future.

Arsenal is playing their semi-final at a time when the club is going through a rough patch with fans calling for Arsene Wenger's sack louder than ever.

But Guardiola felt City had a goal wrongly ruled out in the first half when Sterling scored from a Leroy Sane that was adjudged to have a drifted out of play.

Aaron Ramsey lost possession to Toure just outside the City area and it only took one long pass from the Ivorian to send Aguero racing clear of Monreal, before dinking a clever finish over Cech as the blue half of Wembley erupted.

The opening goal came just after the hour as City broke from deep following an Arsenal corner.

And the woodwork denied City again in the closing stages as Fernandinho's header from eight yards crashed against the crossbar from Kevin De Bruyne's corner.

Alexis Sanchez found the winning goal, bundling home from close range in the 101st minute.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain crossed to the far post and Monreal demonstrated his ability by volleying past goalkeeper Claudio Bravo with his weaker right foot.

Pep Guardiola has backed Manchester City to bounce back from their FA Cup disappointment and secure a place in the top-four.

"I am very proud of our performance and of the spirit we have shown - I believe we gave a good answer to people who questioned that [spirit]", Wenger said to BT Sport.
