Guardiola: Sanchez is one step below Messi - of course there is interest


Manchester City and Arsenal have had contrasting forms over the last couple of weeks. "We did absolutely everything to play, like yesterday for example, like Tottenham, so it's congratulations to Arsenal and Chelsea for a trip to the final".

Victory in the FA Cup Final against Chelsea will not appease those supporters who believe Wenger is incapable of ensuring Arsenal compete for the biggest prizes, but the prospect of another Wembley trip will help lighten the mood around London Colney after a troubled period.

Victory in the final on 27 May would strengthen his and Arsenal's case for continuity, but for now there was much for the Frenchman and his players to treasure about this triumph.

"It is a special experience and, for us, I think we are focused, highly motivated". It would be absolutely stupid to speculate on the final.

Koscielny had a goal correctly ruled out for offside but controversy erupted when City had a goal disallowed in more contentious circumstances. It's really a 50-50 game.


"I made the mistake for the goal".

It remains to be seen whether Arsene Wenger extends his 21-year stay at Arsenal but whatever happens, he now has the chance to finish a hard campaign with a third trophy in four years.

"It was a special pressure in 2014". Aguero goes to ground in the box after a clumsy Oxlade-Chamberlain makes contact from behind but the referee says no penalty.

Furthermore, Guardiola's style is one that Wenger tried very hard to implement himself in north London - that Arsenal's 2-1 win means Guardiola will go trophyless for the first season in his managerial career might add meaning to the Arsenal manager's win.

"The game was the game and during 90 minutes in games like this, in a semi-final that is like a final, you can not expect to control all the situations but we controlled most of the time". In 2015, they also faced a Championship side - Reading - in the semifinal before beating Aston Villa in the final for back-to-back titles. He will need a trophy and/or that top-four place otherwise they idea of him staying on and signing a new deal will be a hard sell to that disgruntled strand of Gunners support. But whatever happens on Sunday, Wenger is well aware of the special atmosphere that will mark the occasion. When Ozil needs a breather, you can play Aaron there'. "Suddenly when you walk out there [at Wembley], half of the stadium is red and half is blue, so you realise it is something different".
