With a goal from defense, Manchester City advanced to the sixth round of the FA Cup by eliminating Arsenal by the smallest difference of 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium

With a lone goal from defender Nathan Aké, Manchester City narrowly beat Arsenal to eliminate them from the FA Cup, in a typical match of a chess game between Guardiola and his former assistant Mikel Arteta, which was defined by small details.

In the first part it was a shared domain for both teams, which at times lent themselves control of the ball, although without generating any clear chance of scoring. Arteta took the field at the Etihad Stadium with an alternative team, as several of his regular starters did not take to the pitch from the start; Players like Martín Odegaard, Martinelli, William Saliba and Oleksandr Zinchenko started off the bench.

In the second half, Guardiola’s team launched more attack and Erling Haaland’s lack to beat the net, the goal came from a defender; It was the full-back Aké who was at the right time and in the right place to culminate an action that came after game time, gestated with a shot at the post by Argentine Julián Álvarez and resolved by Jack Grealish who found the Dutch defender as a solution. the one who brought the ball into the net.

Arteta had to turn to Odegaard, Zinchenko and Gabriel Matinelli who gave Arsenal depth and cornered City; but a brilliant performance from goalkeeper Stefan Ortega denied the Gunners the goal on more than one occasion.

At the end of the 1990s, the match ended with a minimal difference for those from Manchester, who thus eliminated Arsenal and advanced to the fifth round of the FA Cup, the last phase before the semifinals and final.
