Abameyang doubles to send Arsenal to Past City and FA Cup final


Pierre-Emerick Abameyang scored twice at empty Wembley Stadium for Arsenal as Arsenal put pressure on Manchester City to earn a place in the FA Cup final. For Pep Guardiola, it was a disappointment in north London. Not only did City lose the FA Cup tie for the first time since February 2018, they occasionally lost to Guardiola teams, captured their own dullness, and were ready to sit deep on rivals.

For Arsenal, it may seem like a confirmation of something. For the second time in four days, the Michael Arteta team displayed real defensive discipline against the Premier League powers, not only perceiving the pressure but also breaking through with great cuts. Quiet, effective presence in granite haka midfield. Nicholas Pepe, using his speed, advised the city to extend to the right bank, where Ainsley fought the Maitland-Niles tiger and made good use of the ball. Here are some signs of a stir.

Kick-off Wembley is a heartbreaking place that turns huge in the stadium’s PA’s big throat. It is the concrete partition that is gloomy at best times, And these are not the best by any measure. A ghost town, sweet trolleys and hotdog stands are closed for the Gray Contras FA Cup semi-final day, the current crisis has devastated the FA financial situation.

Guardiola picked up an early XI with the ballplayers, with only the actual defensive presence in the front six before Lickey Gundogan. This is a team that looks similar to the Liverpool game at the Emirates in the Midwick, where David Luiz - yes, David Luiz - promoted the division's most defensive performance at the end of the season.

Here Arteta started with Back Five, as City were in early possession, pushing the Red Shirts towards their goal and back at the same time. But Arsenal had the first clear chance with 15 minutes to play.

David Luiz took a poor American Laport clearance out of the air and played a simple square pass from City midfield to Abameyang in the middle, unmarked before the goal. He fired powerfully, but directly at Ederson. It felt like a bad omen - but not for Abameyang, who opened the scoring four minutes later at the end of another movie, which had zero resistance from the sky blue shirt. Hector Belleron fed Pope right. His deep cross did not affect the defense of the whole city and met with a close-range finish with excellent angles from the captain.

Arsenal continued their intense defense with counter-attack moments. There were still more balls in the city, but the hasty clearance was also obtained and something went wrong. Shkodran Mustafi drove a corner towards the goal, saving the plane from Ederson. With the whistleblowing half, the time City have not yet held a shot on goal.

Those who started with a familiar need came back after the break. For a while it was even higher: more Sky Blue passing pattern, more dark red protection. David Silva spewed a small interception that saw Raheem Sterling clear for the goal. It took Arsenal eight minutes to step towards the opponent.

Constantly, however, the city seemed to run out of snaps and fizz. Kevin de Bruyne has been seeing this distortion on the ball for some time. With an hour to go, the best midfielder in the Premier League completed 66% of his passes.

He provided almost equal, free kicking on the wall and side netting. Shortly afterwards Sterling Mustafi fell to the ground with a challenge, but Arsenal escaped from the VAR check. Sterling produced a terrible miss before the goal. Surprised by traveling to a corner on the left, he can only weakly detach the ball from his nose when he sees a specific target with two types of headers.

Arsenal came out from behind their guard to score the second, killer goal in 71 minutes. Kieran Tierney scored with a superb diagonal ball, scoring on a quick pass behind City's high defensive line from the left. Once again the end is a high craft. Abameyang made it easy for Eric Garcia to clean up, moved his hips to change angles, and put the ball 2-0 through Ederson's legs.

However, the city hit. Laport crashed a shot outside a post. It didn’t really seem enough. The finale, two weeks from now, gives an explanation of a strange and painful season.

Last week also gave something else, the wiring concept tightened; And for the first time in a while, the Make-Do-Mend team is responding to new rhythms.
