Arsenal’s record holder dethroned City and is still in the FA…

first_imgArsenal surprisingly dethroned Manchester City for the FA Cup, defeating the “citizens” 2-0 in a semifinal clash at Wembley Stadium. Both hits were the work of Pierre-Emerick Obameyang.The Gabonese opened the scoring in the 19th minute after a rough omission a little earlier in the match, and twenty minutes before the end of regular time doubled. The “gunners” played very solidly and almost did not allow the “citizens” to threaten their door. Thus, the series of 7 consecutive victories of City over this opponent ended, and in the final on August 1, the boys of Mikel Arteta will play against the winner of the second semifinal pair Manchester United – Chelsea. Arsenal is a record holder in the tournament with 13 awards. The “citizens” took the initiative from the very beginning and the game was transferred to half of their opponent. David Silva had a good opportunity in the third minute, and a little later Rahim Stirling allowed feints in the small penalty, but without success.Alexander Lacazette put the ball in the net for Ederson in the first good action of Arsenal, but the goal was not correctly counted due to an ambush. A magnificent pass from David Lewis followed behind the defense, but Pierre-Emerick Obameyang would powerfully reach Ederson from the front. The Gabonese still retaliated in the 19th minute from a far more difficult situation. He received a “soft” cross from Nicolas Pepe and on the far post shot spectacularly from the air to score with the help of the side post. It was the 24th goal of the season for the former Borussia Dortmund striker.Arsenal surprisingly looked fresher and more dangerous than their opponent, playing at fast speeds. Five minutes before the break, Ederson saved a very strong and accurate header from Shkodran Mustafi. Manchester City, as expected, pressed immediately after the break, but missed Rahim Stirling and Kevin De Bruyne, as the Belgian sent the ball into the net from a direct free kick.In the middle of the second half, Stirling was surprised by the ball after a ricochet by David Luis and played in a comical way with a face near Emiliano Martinez.The response of the cold-blooded Arsenal was not late and twenty minutes before the end of regular time Obamayang scored his second goal of the match. He received a pass from Tierney from half of Arsenal and passed the ball between Ederson’s legs, completing a magnificently embroidered counterattack by the Londoners. Again, Pepe played an important role, masterfully holding around the center of the field before knocking on Tierney. For the rest of the time, City looked confused rather than angry and failed to impose their will. In the 83rd minute Laport fired a powerful projectile, which passed near the right side pillar.Arsenal – Manchester City 2: 01:0 Pierre-Emerick Obameyang – 19 ‘ 2:0 Pierre-Emerick Obameyang – 71 ‘last_img read more
