FA Cup: Arsenal, Chelsea and the two Manchester in the last four
London (AFP) - Manchester United, qualified on Saturday, were joined on Sunday by City, and Londoners from Arsenal and Chelsea in the final four of the FA Cup, whose semi-finals will take place at Wembley on 18 and 19 July.
Carried out at halftime of the last quarter-final between Newcastle and Manchester City, the draw decided that the Red Devils will play Chelsea, while the Gunners will challenge the Citizens, defending champions.
Manchester City is always hungry:
After losing their double title on Thursday to Liverpool, following their defeat at Chelsea (2-1), Manchester City reacted well by eliminating Newcastle (2-0).
A match in two very different periods, since the Magpies first tried to make the back round 30 meters from their goal by counting on the liveliness of an Allan Saint-Maximin to hurt against.
But they almost never crossed the halfway line and did not prevent Pep Guardiola's men from scoring by Kevin de Bruyne, who transformed a penalty for his 29th birthday (1-0, 37th).
In the second period, Newcastle tried to react by taking the game on its own and Dwight Gayle missed a huge opportunity to equalize by sending in the clouds an offering of Saint-Maximin, six meters (66th).
Two minutes later, Raheem Sterling broke a nice curling strike (0-2, 68) for a controlled victory.
Chelsea depresses Leicester:
Returning to three lengths from Leicester in the league, in the podium race, the men of Frank Lampard dealt him a new blow to morale with this elimination.
The Foxes, already eliminated in the semifinal of the League Cup by a relegation, Aston Villa, in January, experienced a new disillusionment by missing the qualification for their first semi-final of Cup since 1982.
