When Arsenal are on form, they are consistently known as a team that creates fast, flowing attacking football from all over the pitch, and Pep Guardiola’s Man City side is also developing that reputation now and are arguably doing it more successfully at the moment. Both sides have scored 63 League goals this season already which averages out at two goals each in every single game, and this fact only emphasises the attacking philosophy of both teams.
In the last 5 meetings between these sides there have been a total of 19 goals, and none of the games have yielded a clean sheet for either team, so there is no reason why we can’t expect more of the same tomorrow afternoon. The City midfielder Yaya Toure is certainly expecting the fans to see a very entertaining match. He said: “I think the philosophy of football on the field is a little bit similar, because the two teams are going to attack.
“The fans don’t have to expect one team to defend and the other to attack. They WILL expect it.
“The two teams are going to attack each other to the end, fighting for one objective – the FA Cup trophy.
“I think it’s going to be a beautiful game. We expect that as players, the fans expect for sure because the in two games we’ve played against Arsenal (this season) there were a lot of goals.
“I think we are the team who produce the most beautiful games. We all do a good job and we’ve been doing it, I think.
“We deserve something. Of course, I don’t take credit from Chelsea or Arsenal or Tottenham for being there.
“I think these four clubs, are fighting. They have all won trophies and I think the one who is going to win will deserve it.”
I think we are in for a feast of football this weekend in both semi-finals, but I am certain there will be more goals in Sunday’s game than Saturday’s. I just hope Arsenal can score more than Man City!
