Arsenal and Manchester City met in the 2017 FA Cup semi-final at Wembley- the Gunners winning 2-1 in extra-time

City have one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals and are also 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League.

After a trophy-less first season in charge of City, Guardiola's career major trophy haul as a manager stands at 19, having won 11 with Barcelona and seven at Bayern Munich.

"For large periods we defended well, but we lost concentration and against good teams you pay", said Wenger.

Sergio Agüero opened the scoring after 16 minutes as he bumped off Shkodran Mustafi and chipped David Ospina, Vincent Kompany headed home a second just after the hour mark before David Silva rounded off the resounding victory with the third and final goal.

Wenger said Kompany's goal in the second half should have been ruled offside by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR), being used on Sunday for the first time in a cup final in England.

Specifically, it's a symbol of support for Catalonian political prisoners in Spain.

"We didn't give too many chances away today but we gave easy chances away".

The Sydney Roosters and the All Blacks have hit back at a claim Sonny Bill Williams is about to return to the NRL.

"I have to say, I'm struggling to come up with words now to describe this Arsenal pattern, this engrained, embedded pattern that we've seen". We have to focus on our next game.

IT was men against boys from start to finish.

One young Arsenal fan was caught on camera inconsolable in floods of tears. The deposed Catalan president, who fled the country to avoid imprisonment himself, dubbed them "hostages".

What will Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Henrikh Mkhitaryan be thinking about now?

Made one important close range save early on, and excellent assist for City's opener. We'll assess him tomorrow but he's a big, big loss. We played really well from the first action. But we showed who we are in the second half.

And they have virtually assured a place in the Champions League quarterfinals after their a 4-0 victory over FC Basel in the first leg, but Guardiola warned that they must improve if they are to go any further.

"We deserved to win", he told Sky Sports.

He insists he is now physically fit and feels he has the mentality of a "warrior".

There is the sense of limitless potential, helped by financial power of course, and a club where things can only get better. We are happy and I am very happy. I don't know, we accepted the VAR, I just watched it again.

So what lessons, from a City perspective, do we take from yesterdays game?
