Jesus sends Man City into FA Cup final

Jesus sends Man City into FA Cup final

The midfielder refused to entertain lifting the trophy ahead of today's semi-final with Watford at Wembley.

City have already wrapped up the Carabao Cup and sealed their place in the FA Cup final on Saturday, while they remain in the driving seat for the Premier League.

However, it was City who triumphed domestically as they strolled to the title virtually unopposed last season. Manchester City are in a real battle to retain their Premier League title, with Liverpool now two points ahead of the Sky Blues.

The full-back helped seal a hard-fought 1-0 FA Cup semi-final win against Brighton, but the questions after did not only revolve around fitness. It's incredible what these players have done so far, and we are going to try and win every game until the end.

Guardiola was quick to play down the "Q" word.

The incident went to the VAR, which is being used in the FA Cup, but referee Anthony Taylor was not required to send Walker off, although he was replaced at halftime by Danilo.

"In my opinion, it was a red card".

Android Q may support 3D touch-like functionality called 'deep
For now, the details regarding the hardware requirements for sensing the pressure of the press on the display is scarce. This implies that deep press is a quicker way of accessing options that would have been exposed via a long press.

To their credit, Brighton did not buckle and never allowed the Premier League champions to find their best form. Surely the toughest of the lot. We conceded too many but only one unsafe situation. Let's take a look at their potential route to the big-eared trophy. They are travelling to Tottenham's new stadium for the first leg in what is sure to be an incredible occasion before the second leg at the Etihad. Oh, and they got relegated too.

Guardiola added: "No team can perform fantastically for every single game". They can afford a draw or two and qualify on away goals, it is all about progress.

City boss Pep Guardiola has a selection dilemma at full-back for Tuesday's Champions League clash at Tottenham after Kyle Walker suffered a hamstring injury against Brighton to join Oleksandr Zinchenko and Fabian Delph on the injury list.

Alternatively, Pep Guardiola could come up against his former side and Lionel Messi in the showpiece event.

City have what it takes to beat any side in Europe but as we saw last season at Anfield, they can be overwhelmed by the pressure this competition brings.

"I'm quite curious about the teams that achieved something good, for the reason why and what they have done", said Guardiola, who won a Treble with Barcelona in the 2008-08 season.

Brighton are winless in their four previous matches at Wembley stadium (D1 L3); should they fail to win, they will become just the fifth different side to win on none of their first five visits to the stadium in all competitions (Brentford, Leicester City, Middlesbrough and Shrewsbury Town).
