If Manchester City wasn’t brilliant this time, we can say that they were clinical enough to kill the game off. Early on, within four minutes, they solved the game through a Gabriel Jesus header. The Citizens beat Brighton 1-0 at Wembley this Saturday and booked their place to the FA Cup final. They can conquer everything in the season, as they are fighting with Liverpool for the Premier League, and will face the Spurs in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. They had also won the Carabao Cup over Chelsea in the penalty shootouts earlier in the season.
The FA Cup decision is set for May 18, again at Wembley. Manchester City will know their opponent out of the clash between Watford and Wolverhampton tomorrow. This match will also take place at the legendary Wembley, in London. The fans attendance in today’s match was poor though. We could see the Brighton sector completely full. While the Manchester City sector was kinda half empty. It’s said about 71,521 fans went to the match. Before the FA Cup final, they will already know if they are the Champions of the Premier League, as the last match is one week before. The UEFA Champions League final will place on June the 1st.
It was not a display even close to the level that Guardiola has accustomed us in the past two years. But there is a certain point in the season when you need to be more pragmatic. Faced with the sequence of games, the coach made some changes, and his team won the tea bill. Kevin De Bruyne’s cross was delivered to Jesus, who dove to head home and kill the confront with four on the clock. The Seagulls fought until the end, and their supporters recognized the players’ late efforts. Brighton fans put in a true show on “How to support your team” this Saturday at Wembley. They deserved a stroke of better luck. Fair play anyway, City! Good luck on the final!
