Man City close to quadruple target with FA Cup final ticket

Manchester City took a step closer to an unprecedented quadruple on Saturday, edging past Brighton and into the FA Cup final with a 1-0 win at Wembley.

Gabriel Jesus scored the semi-final’s only goal, heading home in the third minute.

City were not at their flowing best and had Aymeric Laporte to thank for a vital clearance from under his own bar in the second half.

However, they found a way to clinch their 22nd win in their last 23 matches across all competitions and book a spot in the showpiece final on May 18.

“I am happy to be in the final,” said City boss Pep Guardiola afterwards. “We extend our season by one more week and we are happy for that.” – Sky Sports.
