FA Cup 2017: Three things we learned from Arsenal 2-1 Manchester City

The Blues had a little over 15 minutes to get a second goal after Alexis Sánchez gave Arsenal the lead in extra-time, but they didn’t do enough and will have to watch Arsenal take on Chelsea in the FA Cup final. Here are three things we learned: 1. Bad Luck Arsenal dominated the pace and direction of play at times, but City never lacked opportunities to score.

A City Fan’s Perspective: A Game of Inches

A painful loss that should have been a win... Manchester City fell 2-1 to Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday, but a few correct calls could’ve turned it around. The Sky Blues were the better team on the day, should have had a goal and a penalty in the first half, missed good chances in the second half, and eventually fell to the Gunners after extra time. This one hurts. Let's take a deeper look into City's performance on Sunday. Defense Claudio Bravo didn’t have a great day at the office, but some of his dribbles were fantastic. He looked more confident on the ball, which...

After the game, not a lot of players went to social media to speak to their fans, but we did get some reactions from Sergio Agüero, Willy Caballero and coach Pep Guardiola, who also spoke to the media.
