Arteta becomes the boss as Arsenal triumphs over City

In today’s semi-final of the FA Cup, Arsenal beat Manchester City to seal their place in the final.

The Gunners haven’t had the best of seasons, with our squad struggling for a number of months in the mid-table, but since Mikel Arteta was brought in in December, the club has been on the up a lot.

The coach brought in a whole new lease of life, and the team had to fight for each other, and this new belief was on display for everyone to see today.

Arsenal defeated a City side that had to rest key players in midweek having already sealed their Champions League qualification, but the runners-up of the Premier League couldn’t get a grip on the game.

Man City started the game on top but our team had settled for about 15 minutes and started to get on top.

 

David Luiz put Aubameyang on goal with a delightful through-ball, but our main man failed to maintain his composure and blasted straight at Ederson.

However, we were not left to rue that for long as Nicolas Pepe guided a delightful low ball across the box into Aubameyang ‘s path to fire us into the lead.

For the remainder of the half we held on the front foot while holding our rivals within our box with small touches, but we were unable to build on that lead before the break.

Both sides stayed unchanged heading into the second half, and the game also stayed virtually similar.

Manchester City had long spells on the ball, but they became frustrated as they failed to break down Arsenal, and they would have been even more annoyed when Aubameyang broke free on the left side and cleared off the defenders to go one-on-one with Ederson, only to nutmeg the Brazilian to the centre of the goal.

Our opponents tried to change the game by throwing on Rodri and Foden but despite their efforts, the defensive strategy of Mikel Arteta was not to beat.
