Man City make club history after FA Cup semi-final victory against Chelsea

Man City make club history after FA Cup semi-final victory against Chelsea

Manchester City have sealed their place in this season’s FA Cup final.

Manchester City have made club history after their FA Cup semi-final victory against Chelsea.

On Saturday afternoon, Pep Guardiola’s men took on Chelsea at Wembley days after their European dream was ended by Real Madrid in agonising fashion.

After being taken all the way by Madrid, City looked a bit leggy during their match against the Stamford Bridge club.

However, Chelsea failed to capitalise as Nicolas Jackson was guilty of squandering a number of big chances.

In the end, Bernardo Silva came up with the winner in the 84th minute to seal his side's return to another FA Cup final.

After the match, it was revealed that City have made a little bit of club history with their win over Chelsea.

OptaJoe wrote on social media: “29 - Manchester City are unbeaten in their last 29 matches in all competitions, the longest ever such run in the club's history (W23 D6). Dreamland.”

Fans have been left baffled by the record after City were dumped out of the Champions League against Real Madrid in mid-week.

One wrote: "They lost on pens midweek," while another added, "They lost on Wednesday."

Another user added: "Could have swore they got beat on Wednesday, so who they got in the CL semi final?"

One fan said: "If you’re unbeaten how didn’t you qualify for the semis"

Bernardo's winner came during a difficult week for the Portugal international after he missed a crucial penalty in their Champions League tie against Real Madrid.

Speaking after the match, he said: "Very happy after a very frustrating week for all of us, for me personally.

"The good thing is in football at Man City, you play every three days. Every three days you have the chance to put things right and now we have a chance to win another trophy.


Silva continued: “It's the usual Kevin de Bruyne movement. You try to put numbers in the box to increase your chances of scoring. I'm lucky the ball dropped there

"Throughout the years, we've done it may times and today, the team showed a lot of character.

"It's going to be tough. Between Coventry and Manchester United, it's going to be a very good game and we're looking forward to the final."
