FA Cup: Guardiola reveals why Arsenal defeated Man City 2-0

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has blamed his side’s slow start for their 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in their FA Cup semi-final on Saturday.

Although City dominated possession for most of the game, it was the Gunners who scored twice in each half through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The result means Guardiola will not be able to win a domestic Treble like he did last season.

“We started slow and without the way you have to play,” Guardiola said after the match at Wembley.

“We are always ready many times but today we were not.

“They defended well. It happened [when Arsenal played] against Liverpool too so we knew it. But we were not good.”

Guardiola will now prepare his team for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash against Real Madrid, where they hold a 2-1 lead.
