Manchester City are through to the FA Cup semi-final after a tense 1-0 win over Brighton in today’s semi-final at Wembley.
In what was at times a feisty affair at Wembley, City had got off to the perfect start by scoring within the first four minutes.
Kevin De Bruyne was the architect, his stunning pin-point cross finding the waiting Gabriel Jesus at the far post and the Brazilian made no mistake stooping to head home from close-range.
But Brighton caused several problems after the break and it needs a superb goal-line clearance from Aymeric Laporte to prevent the Seagulls levelling midway through the second half.
