Manchester City cruise into FA Cup semi-finals with victory over Newcastle United

Posted : 17 March 2024

Manchester City effortlessly secured their spot in the FA Cup semi-finals with a commanding victory over Newcastle United at Etihad Stadium. Pep Guardiola's side, eyeing another historic Treble, hardly faced any challenge from a lackluster and weary Newcastle outfit on a rainy night in Manchester.


City's dominance was evident as they became the first team in FA Cup history to reach six consecutive semi-finals, with Guardiola guiding them to the last four in seven out of his eight seasons in charge. Despite facing difficult weather conditions, City controlled the game with 75% possession and went into halftime with a comfortable two-goal lead.


Bernardo Silva proved instrumental for City, benefiting from fortuitous deflections to find the net twice in the first half. While Newcastle had a fleeting chance through Alexander Isak, City's solid defensive display and overall superiority ensured a stress-free evening as they set their sights on another Wembley semi-final.


Meanwhile, Newcastle's disappointing performance highlighted the stark contrast between their current struggles and the early-season optimism surrounding their Champions League aspirations. Despite facing significant injury setbacks, Eddie Howe's side failed to display the conviction needed to challenge City, leaving them with a season rapidly descending into anticlimax.
