Man City book FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal with Newcastle win

Manchester City will play Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-finals after claiming a 2-0 win over Newcastle United on Sunday.

Kevin De Bruyne scored the opening goal from the penalty spot after Gabriel Jesus was fouled in the box.

Raheem Sterling then scored a brilliant individual goal to seal the victory at St. James' Park.

Speaking after the game, Pep Guardiola was delighted with the win.

"It was a fantastic goal from Raheem," he said.

"For the penalty, I didn't see the review. Gabriel Jesus could have headed the ball and I think the opponent pushed him.

"De Bruyne is definitely reliable and hopefully he can carry on because we struggled a lot this season with this.

"We miss, I think, five or six [penalties]. Kevin now takes responsibility; he has a confident personality and that is important for us."
