Arsenal put up one of their best performances when they clash with Manchester City in the way to the FA cup final. The construction of the ball from their own back to the goal area of Manchester City and the fine finish of Aubermeyang is delight to watch.
What a construction of the ball! The passes were accurate; all the players were involved from the goalkeeper, to the defenders, to the midfield and to the strikers. Manchester city players were made to look like spectators.
I cannot believe my eyes, first I thought it was Barcelona playing but no, it is those in the reds. Infact, this goal will end up in the Guiness books of records.
Congratulations to Arsenal! I think Arteta has learnt very well from his former boss, Guardiola before leaving for Arsenal. Arteta used Guardiola’s tricks to beat Manchester City.
Arteta learned very well from Guardiola. Excellent finish from Aubameyang. Manchester City 0-1 Arsenal.
Mikel Arteta’s red and white army has beaten Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and Pep Guardiola‘s Manchester City in a space of three days. Excellent collective effort. We’re playing as a team again. Really hope he’s backed financially in the summer.
Tactically, Arteta got it spot on. It was a win which highlighted why, after the dark days of the first half of the season, there is real cause for optimism now in north London.
Time and time again we’ve seen Arsenal sides capitulate in the face of superior teams. Since beating City here in the 2017 semi-final they’ve played them seven times, losing all seven, conceding 20 and scoring just two
But they shrugged that record aside to book their spot in what will be the club’s 21st FA Cup final, where they all meet either Chelsea or Manchester United on August 1.
It’s been a horrible season for Arsenal at times, one of the worst in recent memory. The fact they dropped below Burnley in the Premier League table moments before kick-off said it all.
Arteta left his role as assistant at City last December to take charge at Emirates Stadium, and while it has been far from straightforward for the Spaniard since, he could be on course to finish a topsy-turvy campaign with silverware.
Aubameyang was the hero as he struck twice at an eerily empty Wembley, sending his side through to face Chelsea or Manchester United on August 1.
